I had him as a professor in the late 90's and absolutely adored his class...Western World Views. He enlightened me on many subjects and opened my mind to a world that I had yet to truly discover. He gave me a passion for learning. Now as a teacher, I often insert anecdotes in my lessons that are inspired by him. Thank you Professor Granger...in case he ever reads this!
I'd like to contact him.
He was my first Vanier enlightened moment back when there were only 1400.
He was the master at the door of perception.
Very easy class to pass. He assingns opinion essays to hand in once a week and also makes you read pages out of a textbook as well as make reference to it in the essay. You are looking at a total of 2 hours a week invested in the class to get a solid 80. He makes you watch movies in his class for the first hour and and then for 45 min he says stories about world politics or life lessons. 3 hour classe's are 1h45min with this teacher. I reccommend him!
PLEASE TAKE HIM. I'm telling you, you won't regret it!! He is so knowledgeable and will teach you a lot of interesting topics. The class is suppose to be 3 hours but it is actually only 2! Brilliant, kind, gives 20% on attendance.
Genius. Take him please, you do not do a lot of work, but he opens your mind and broadens your intelligence. I had him for West World Views, he splits the class in two the third week, and you go in for the first hour, and then either you stay an hour more or get an hour break and come back. You hand in an essay every week based on the readings he assigned, and if you don't do the reading, you can write based on your opinion and still get an ok mark. You watch movies and then discuss in a circle
My Dream Class! If I ever had the choice to retake any course in my life, it would be this one. Asks very important questions that people tend to close their eyes to and writing the essays helped me learn very important aspects about myself. I easily got over 90 in this class by simply doing my essays with readings on time. BTW, no tests!
Best teacher at Vanier College. He is very helpfull and is there for his dtudents at all times. He is very very very caring and so generous
Great Teacher, do your work and it will be very easy. Very interesting class.
Super interesting, the only work you have is showing up and weekly essays of about 1-2 pages of writing. Show up, listen and you will learn a lot and do well. Topics are so interesting, and really make you think. He is one of the best teachers I have ever had. MUST TAKE!!
HE IS AWESOME. good teacher, very easy to pass. MUST TAKE!!!
A lot of essays to write but they are not too complicated! You will learn a lot with him! He's very helpful if you ever need help! Great teacher! must take!
The person that comes to mind when I think of the word "intellectual." The course changed my life for the better. I learnt a lot about things you don't talk about with friends,parents, etc. Must take.
He is the best Humanities teacher out there! take him! hes an easy marker and he teaches you a lot about life! i wrote his essays an hour be4 every class n i finished with a 92! take him!
You learn quit alot with this teacher, as long as your present every class, and you complete your essays every week (which are pretty easy he's not picky) then you'll be sure to pass. He's great!!!!!
He's a very nice teacher. If you can handle a lot of reading and writing assignments, take him because you will pass with at least 80% Assignments are easy but frequent.
Great teacher with a very interesting way of viewing things. Just show up and do your essays and you will get around an 80. I really reccomend him.
best and most interesting teacher ever,, highly recommended
Open-minded teacher, but will not be easily convinced if you have nothing to support your views. Honestly, the class felt too short, sometimes I didn't want the class to end.
I don't know who I'd be now if I hadn't taken his world views class 3 years ago. Amazing. Life-changing. Thank you so much.
I liked him; I'd take him again. No tests, just a small essay due every week, plus final take home essay. Really interesting lectures; he always has the class' attention.
Humanities class with the least amount of work, yet you learn the most from this man.
He is a great teacher. you come to his classes to enjoy and relax. If you have the chance to take his course ,just do it.
One of the best and the realest teacher ever, if you listen you will learn a lot from him, he will also go through the important questions of life, HE IS VERY INTERRESTING AND NOT BORING!!
The only prof in Vanier that will have you counting days and hours until his class. i guarantee it
awesome teacher, try to get a humanities class with him
Some of my friends and me are ready to make a fan club!!! We LOVE LOVE LOVE him!!!!!!!! AMAZING MAN -you actually learn something!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This teacher will teach you things about life rather than uselessness. He wants people to have better understanding of the world and of life and he will open up your mind completely!TAKE HIM! AMAZING
OK teacher, but arrogant, his grading system has nothing to do with the students understanding of the principle but rather on the expression of the idea, Do the weekly paper on time and the class EZ!
OH my gosh he's one of the greatest teachers ive ever had!Marks amazingly took me about n 1n a half a week for the one papare due per week! I put in my true thoughts n opinions n passed with94!!! :)
Probably the best Humanities teacher at Vanier. His Western World Views class was very structured and you perfectly knew what to do from the beginning. It's sad he's going to retire soon. Take him!
very easy marker! very nice teacher. i know someone that has had him 14 years and still thinks he was a great teacher! very comprehensive. disorganized but still makes you wanna go to class.
I have graduated from university now but I still remember Gary Granger from Vanier...he was the best teacher I've ever had...I'm glad to read that students still adore him...He's true, blunt and will change your thinking.
He's by far the greatest teacher I've ever had. His class is also very easy to pass. 20% is just on attendence and why would you not want to attend his classes. I highly reccomend him.
Hands down, the greatest teacher i've ever had. His class is so interesting! Great guy, down to earth and understanding.
He's a great teacher. You will really learn a lot in his class and he teaches in an interesting way. You can tell he loves his job.
He is the best humanities teacher at Vanier. He is a very organised, peaceful and follow the rules kind of person but take his western world views and u won't regret. He is just superb coz he know his stuff v. well.
The best teacher at vanier... Made me see life in a whole new way.. listens to his students and understands them... The most open-minded person alive. His job is to get you thinking, and beleive me, he is good at his job. Take his course before he retires, if you are open minded to new things take the course and you will love it. Thanks Gary.
He brings his students at another thinking level. But even though he says that he won't impose any ideas on you.... he often tries to do so, and if you argue, often he'll argue back. But the class is easy to pass but so many essays are due all the time. He's a nice man though.
his humanities class has no tests, just one paper a week and one long paper at the end of the semester, fun class, easiest 75 ever
I had Gary Granger as a teacher in my first semester at Vanier in the Fall of 1970. 36 years later, I still remember that he was an extremely interesting and very caring man; a radical gentleman would descibe him accurately at the time. After all these years, it's great to see that he is still on top of his game and that he is just as much appreciated by students as he was during the days of the October Crisis and the death of Hendrix/Joplin.
Best teacher that I had; it was the only class that I was looking forward to go to. He's the kindest teacher and person that one could be. Easy class..just do the work and you'll pass with a great mark. No orals, just a take home final exam. Take him!
The most insightful class ever, by the the best teacher ever. You must take this class.
amazing teacher really interesting.... take the western world views cuz its a really cool class
This teacher sets the standards as to how a college level teacher should be. He is extremely competent. Has a very good understanding of how students are. Has no desire to fail you. And most importanly, he DOES NOT treat his studants as inferiors. As a young adult I believe that I chose to go to college because it was my decision to do so. As such, I always expect to be treated as an adult, and that is something that most teachers fail to grasp.
Best teacher by far, take his class and he WILL change your life 4 ever.
great teacher, makes you think about life a lot...this teacher iz the best teacher i ever had and the only class i was looking forward to go 2
IMO, the best teacher at Vanier. Do yourself a favor and take this guy. You will learn a lot about yourself, the universe and everything in between.
This guy knows how to teach a class well. always anticipates the effect of what he teaches on students. thought-provoking and inspiring, Granger is a good choice. too much reading tho for weekly essays
This man is just too knowledgeful! It's amazing! He is going to make your brain and soul work for sure! if you take the class seriously you'll really learn a lot from him. If you just wanna pass the course it probably the best class for you too. Very easy to pass a bit harder to ace!
Essay each week-rate on 5pts each.Final takehome exam. For ppl who have a bad english, search for help(learning center, friend) if u wanna get more than 3.5 on 5.Dun refer on the net but on his book or video he shown 2 u.First ull be bored but ull get used to it n itll be interesting afterwards.Late essay gets 1pts off-can b given at the end of semester
Very interesting class, topics make you think seriously about life and reality. Workload summarizes itself into weekly essays and one take-home final.
Very nice teacher. Interesting class discussions. The essays begin 2 get annoying after a while...but it's definately a class you can pass. Great Teacher!
really good teacher! essays are not that hard but 1 every week, 15 of them in total plus final exam which he give the handout right from the 1st class. If you d
He's amazing, one of my favourite teachers at Vanier. He's funny, smart, he has no bad side.
gives marks for attendance but i loved going didnt miss one, not exactly the easiest marker, but felt enlightened every time i went
Wow, what a guy he really explores an other way to look at life, write a short essay for one class and watch movies next, next to impossible to fail, 10/10!
Dinos take his class... The only class I was disappointed whenever I heard of its cancellation and the only class i looked forward to going to.
A little bit too easy to get high marks, which is very bad for the R score, average is too high
He is cool but lots of work and must pay attention in class or might fail
I couldn't believe all the things I was so stubborn to think about before I took his class. You REALLY have to take his class!
His class is more about learning and exploring world views than evaluating. Reasonable amount of homework and fascinating discussions. Highly recommended.
very good teacher really into religion but world views are not only about god i wish he would remember that.
Very easy teacher, I recommend him for science students
A very good teacher! Gives you a feast for thought everytime you walk out of his class.
His course is not merely about answering questions, but to encourage students to comtemplate on debatable issues and expand our point of view.
Easy marker and can get high grades if you do what he wants
this class opened up my eyes to the world. TAKE Western world views NOW!!!
I loved this guy!! He changed the way I see things in life! What an amazing man!
The man is an amazing human being and helped open so many doors of my mind...If you listen, really listen to his messages, it can change your life.
You CANNOT afford to NOT take this teacher. He will help you understand things you never thought of before.
Great teacher! Nice guy! Change your point of view!Do all the weekly essay and and the final, u can get over 85% easily! Its a MUST!
arguably the best teacher you'll ever have at vanier. he enjoys listening to your opinion. and his experience of life are invaluable. a must take class
excellent teacher. he has 100% of my attention each classes!!
This class was a breeze. I didn't open my mouth for a single class and got 94%.
Best Teacher i have ever had the only reason i went vanier
