This guy had absolutely NO IDEA how to teach, let alone take on two subjects. Whoever gets him as a teacher, expect a 0 on next year's social exam. I hope you never get him.

Nice guy, but terrible teacher. My final with him was watching the Lion King.

Mr. Ditchburn is the chillest social teacher ever. I like his personality but his teaching style is meh. To be fair, he's funny, an easy marker, reasonably organized, and somewhat helpful if asked; but he doesn't really teach. He plays a movie every week and we've had one test the whole year.

Well Mr. Ditchburn was a really nice guy, although he seems a bit lonely. Never less, he marks a bit easy and is not clear on assignments. Just don't get on his bad side, if you do, don't say I didn't warn you, you will get bad marks and blah, blah, blah. Just try and be nice to him!

The worst thing about Mr. Ditchburn is that he doesn't teach at all. He gives us a lot of assignments as his mode of "teaching," and because I can't learn from those assignments at all, I get really bad marks. Mr. Ditchburn doesn't know us that well, and we don't know him that well either. Oh well, at least he lets us watch movies sometimes.

Very weird teacher. Not clear at all with assignments, and while he offers advice sometimes, it makes no sense.

assigns too much and never marks or even looks at them and ends up guessing marks and 'self assessments' for report cards.

He does not know how to answer questions... he gives you some random answer, making you more unclear than you were before you asked him!

He's entertaining, but his teaching is under par. He's an easy marker, however. He is usually very unspesific with his expectations though, leading to misunderstandings and low-marked projects.

I've never actually had Mr. Ditchburn, but he and Mr. Perfect would do tons of stuff together, so I'd hang in his class. He's actually REALLY nice, super funny, but isn't aware that the kids in his class don't listen to him. But if you listen to him, he tells like the funniest stuff ever. One time, he told me how he got stopped by the police when he was like, 20, lol.

Sometimes difficult to understand. Usually doesn't really teach, leaves it up to movies, handouts, or presentations. Seems to mark depending on mood swings.

If you're a nice little worker peon, he treats you semi-nicely. If you do one thing wrong - and it isn't always your fault - he treats you like an idiot. That's simply not fair.

He doesn't read your work sometimes, but gives you a mark anyways based on his impression. I once watched him grade my project in the library, from afar, and it took him about 30 seconds. Not pleased.

When I first saw him he seemed kind of sleepy and boring, but he ends up being a good teacher and a pretty cool guy.

I dislike him, he sounds like he's going to fall asleep and it's extremely hard to listen to him. You miss quite a few details when he talks. Seems mean and strict.

Argh. He's supposed to be teaching social studies AND language arts, but all he teaches is social. He's a bad teacher because he's very disrespectful towards students.
