Doc was very knowledgeable. He made the classroom a fun, positive learning experience. You could ask him for help at any time. He took a university approach to teaching in that he didn't baby you and beg you to do work like other teachers do. I was in his class every year as an IB student and loved every second of it. DOC is one of the few teachers that adequately prepared me for university and set the foundation for me to be the Phd candidate that I am today.
Doc is THE science teacher of GDHS. He has a PhD! Doc makes classes interesting and allows you to figure out what is occurring and why which helps when it comes to tests because you have already experienced the knowledge first-hand. He is very understanding and has made science a much more fun subject. I hope you enjoy your well deserved retirement!
Amazing Teacher, so fun and down to earth. People that are complaining on here are people that don't take initiative and hate independent work. His style of teaching is very unique in the way that he makes you figure things out yourself instead of just reading and memorizing. Makes the class interactive and exciting.
best teacher at GD for sure. hated science before i had him, now i love it. he explains things so well and makes the class really fun. he has a really good sense of humour and makes sure you understand the material. so sad that he's leaving at the end of this year :(
Funniest teacher I've ever had and one of the best... the guy carries a shadow puppet book around with him at all times Incase the projector stops working, just an awesome teacher.
I've had Doc for grade 9/10, and grade 11 IB level Biology. He's a lovely teacher, gave you what you needed to learn, and let you free. He's incredibly smart in his field, excluding the fact that he refuses to believe that mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell. He has a great sense of humor. The people who are complaining are people who don't know how to do independent work, expect everything to be done for them, or don't pay attention in class then are confused why they fail. Doc RULES!
Very strict. Dry classes. Hard. Goes into detail about things that don't matter and then you don't have time to finish the curriculum so you're stuck reading the textbook at the end of the semester. Labs are not interesting, very tedious ... good luck. His knowledge is without question though - he's very intelligent.
Macdougall is a super chill guy. amazing with explaining tricky science stuff. The problem is that he rarely does lessons, he just hands out textbook work. Then he won't make you do it, or say its due
I remember i got a 54 in his class in grade 11 science.. But i also remember him telling me im capable of so much more... now im in medical school and wrote my usmle.. thank you for the wake up call
MacDougall was a great teacher. I still remember a good deal of the stuff he taught in class which was 5 years ago, so I would say he is a good teacher for sure
He explains well. I find he makes the class fun. I actually ejoyed science.
good teacher but some times hits side bars other than that hes a great teacher good a explaining things he's got a PhD. very help full
He is a nice guy in all but he really is a little hard to understand. I find that he just stands up in the front of the class and talks for a long time and half the people in the class zone out.
Very very very good teacher. PhD in Human Physiology for god's sake. Explains everything in very good detail, although I don't always understand it all because I am not the best at science :( but that is my fault not his. IB guinea pig is what I am. You are great Dr. MacDougall. Keep it up.
AMAZING teacher...the best our science department has. He makes you work through activities which seem hard, but ultimately you learn better that way. Just make sure you stay on top of your work!
good teachre 100x better then norrie .. hes funny .. could explain things better
Dr.MacDougall ( first name stephen ) is a good science teacher. He teaches in a way that you actually have to figure things out for yourself, which in the end makes up for really easy exams because you actually remember the course work.
best science techer ever!! you're the best mr. macdougall!!
Good teacher, but tests are so impossibly hard. Make sure you ask lots of questions before because he tends to be away before or during the test. And his first name is Shane
One day after a huge test WE GOT TO WATCH FUTURAMA!!!!!!!!!!!!U RULE DR.MacDougall
u rock mr. macdougall and ur lizards are soooooooooooo cool
Fairly good teacher, good cartoonist - but needs to explain things in more depth - like for people who aren't taking chemistry and forget everything.
Great biology teacher and really down to earth... easy to approach if ever you have a question
Best biology teacher ever! Always explains things clearly and makes it interesting for us, and is always available for extra help.
U r the best teacher i ever had....ur funny and u taught me a lot i went from a 60 in grade eight to a 90 in grade nine
i think I would of liked him better if I actually liked biology
