His philosophy class is not too difficult, but still challenging. Some of the required reading just plain sucks and is super boring, like the Palmer book, but there are some more interesting tasks. There are also a lot of essays to write, so be prepared.

He cares more about whether you do your work than if it's on time. As long as you as you actually put the effort in to make up stuff you missed it doesn't really matter if you ever go to class. (Trust me I missed about a month straight of Philosophy my senior year.) But if you do attend class, you will learn more than you bargained for and will have fun doing it.

Yeah he picks favorites, but hey guess what, be one. Big deal. He challenges you to think from a different perspective, welcome to philosophy people. If you actually make an effort he will listen and has even changed his perspective when discussing with me. If you actually make any effort whatsoever and don't be 100% annoying, you can easily get on his good side. Droege has very creative assignments and listens to student critique. He is by far the best teacher I've ever had and changed how I view the world

Ahhh, do not take a class of his. He's think he's right about everything and that he is the best teacher ever. It gets really annoying, really fast. He points out the worst qualities of people and their work, instead of the better things, and it's not a very good method of teaching. Avoid Droege.

He doesn't stay focused really well, which is somewhat a blessing in disguise because you could get him off track with anything...he is very nice, but he definatly has his favorites

Interested and passionate about teaching his IB ToK classes, Mr. Droege makes the material fun. He's always willing to sidebar or slow down if a question is asked, and is rarely unavailable if you look for him outside of class. A fun and educational teacher to have!

Tok really grows on you after a while! I hated it, but now I look forward to the class! and Drogee is a wonderful teacher- he even gets us snacks, and lets us play games! I recommed his classes to IB!

I think he tries to force his ideas on everyone else. I don't really enjoy being forced to write about what he believes. But he does make you look at things from different sides :)

My problem with Mr. Droege is that he seems to feel that he is superior to his students, and thus does not try to be on the level with them in discussion.

I had some troubles getting along with Droege, but apparently he's much better teaching philosophy. I did indeed learn a lot from his class and he's a cool guy

Worst arrogant moronic teacher ever. His chosen hobby is debate because he cannot conceive any ideas of his own; he must prove those of others.

Um. Religion and philosophy don't mix. Yelling at students and then needing them don't mix.
