The. Best. Teacher. I've. Ever. Had. He was so fantastic. Every class was fascinating. He made cultivated a connection with me, and would so willingly explore even the most unrelated question. Discussion with him felt personal, completely understandable, and so fulfilling! He made his students really feel great about participating, and would always find the best in any of us. His positive attitude and fantastic sense of humor made his philosophy class unmissable. Take his course.

I took several of Joel's classes over my years at Rosedale because I thought he was a really great teacher. While of course we spend a lot of time learning the class material, he also spends a whole lot of time getting his classes ready for university, which is unimaginably helpful. He's a great teacher, he treats his students like equals, and I loved learning from him. 5/5 teacher

If you need a top 6 uni course take one of Joel's classes - I can't speak for his philosophy course, but in world history there are no opinion questions, essays, or any other kind of assignment that requires that you do any thinking or actual learning! The assignments are just to copy your notes, which Joel dictates in class. Easy & boring. If you don't mind sitting through like, 5 dull history documentaries and listening to Joel talk about how excellent capitalism is, go for it

If you want to be in a class where you can get high grade with no effort, than definitely check out Joel's philosophy class. Everyone will end the class with at least an A-. He tries to make everyone feel special, and by the end of the year youll be surrounded by a bunch of wannabe intellectual scholars. You'll come out just as dumb and twice as pretentious with your head firmly jammed right up your own ass.

It is because of Joel Gottlieb that I set my sights higher than I would have on my own, and now I'm on the path to becoming a cognitive neuroscientist. I have never before, nor after, come across a teacher like Joel. Forget James Franco- Joel deserves the Oscar!!!!...or the Nobel Peace Prize.

Joel will not let you think for yourself, but that is good in the sense that university is all about that. I at first didn't like Joel's approach to our answers (which consisted of us copying down exactly what Joel said), but now I understand he was showing us what it is like at the upper level.

Joel is a very respectful harding working teacher. he's probably the best teacher anyone has had for history because he's fun. Joel knows how to relax at times and work hard at other times. He's a hard marker, but it's all for the best.You're a great teacher, keep it up Joel!

Joel is an Amazing teacher!! He's interesting & he treats his students with respect. He may be a hard marker but he is just trying to prepare his students for University, which is useful for whoever said he should stop acting like a University professor (failing a teacher's class is an unfair way to judge them or not like them). Keep it up Joel!!
