Had him for Critical Reading for Pop Culture and honestly, I've had so much better. He's so not approachable and definitely picks his favourites starting from day 1. To be on his good side, you need to talk A LOT and try not to be absent. He's lazy and a pretentious english teacher who thinks he's better than everyone. Totally doesn't give a damn about you unless you are one of his favourites. Can easily get 85+, but u need to participate. Has a sense of humour, but is careless.

Not at all understanding, he will blatantly tell you that he does not care about your grade. That is why youre there after all... Seriously, youll have many courses where you dont have a choice, this isnt one of them. You are attending the largest cejep and English has the most options out of any class possible... dont waste it with this jerk. Plus his teaching style is boring, so slooow and worst of all itll bring down your R-score since hes lazy and ends up marking everyone the same.

Greg McSweeney is the most hilarious teacher I've ever had. He made the ENTIRE class laugh at his jokes. There are barely any dull moments in his class. Critical Reading of Pop Culture is a very easy class that is discussion-based. The assignments are clear, and he never tries to make them more complicated than they have to be. He wants you to succeed. Take him!!!!

He's really funny and his class is fun. However, you need to make an effort to talk in class. I took him for Critical reading of Pop Culture and I definitely recommend it.

Great teacher if you're willing to show up to each class and pay attention. Tests/quizzes on the readings are easy if you actually did the assigned reading. My class average was rather high

You guys are idiots. This is a great teacher, he is strict on attendance and late policy; if you have trouble with these types of teachers you don't deserve to be at Dawson. Grow Up. I had an amazing time, he may look like he doesn't care for you but he does. He is humorous and very organised. He grades __very__ fairly. He answers questions very well. He speaks audibly. What the hell more do you want? He is a great teacher,but if you're planning on playing on your cell or skipping, don't take.
