First teacher who actually made me think and challenged my views to see why I had my views. He is very knowledgeable in history. He was not afraid to tell you that your work was up to your par. He made class fun every single day. His tests are hard and he is a very hard marker. Have fun in your retirement Turner.
Amazing teacher, really funny. I love his sarcastic jokes and the little bits of knowledge he shares with the class. Terrible handwriting, though.
Easily one of the best social science teachers imaginable. When his course ended, I experienced severe withdrawal symptoms. Extraordinarily effective communicator, incredibly intelligent, delivers course material very efficiently. Difficult tests, but you just have to take notes and study properly. For the duration of the semester, the class was hanging on his every word. I seriously doubt I'll ever take such a compelling academic course again. Sadly, he's close to retirement.
I miss him! I am taking a globalization course at Ottawa U and I want Turner back. I learned way more with him than at university. I even logged into myfiles to read old documents of his to study for a mid term. People are right about his tests, but they aren't so bad if you study for them. I never studied for anything, but I was able to bring my mark from a 67 to an 85 by just reviewing what I learned in class. This man is so smart and an excellent teacher!
Great teacher. His classes are extremely interesting and he always adds a touch of humour, and tells stories on the side to help you remember things. Sometimes he just tells you random interesting facts. Relatively hard marker, but he gives marks where they are deserved.
Had him in grade 10, loved him. Best teacher ever. Once you get to grade 12, he's deathly. I regret taking his grade 12 course. He plays favourites. Isn't as open minded towards his grade 12 students.
He's an amazing teacher - very intelligent and leads great discussions in class. He's also very funny and nice (to me, to the "bad kids", not so much.) His handwriting is SO HARD TO READ THOUGH and hi
This guy is effing BOSS. Not gonna lie; he changed the way I see the world. Had him for Philosophy and Politics... rock on, mate!!!
his tests are hard but you are very lucky if you get him. he leads great discussions in class and he is not your average teacher. he really should be teaching higher grades
Passionate and intelligent. Really knows what he's talking about. I highly reccomend all his classes.
hes really get at getting you to think. He leads interesting discussions and has a pretty good teaching method in m personal opinion.
I LOVE YOU MISTER TURNER... ILL MISS YOUUU! XD U ARE THE BESTEST :P THIS ISNT CLASS SOO U CANT CORRECTTTT ME ON MY HORIBLE SPELIN SO NOW IMA SPEL WORDZ WRONGE 2 MAKE U LOVE ME MORE! XP :P
Great teacher. Really makes students think, and when he "imposes his views," he actually isn't. He will always disagree with a student to play "devil's advocate," and make a student really think.
He is a nice person. I can't seem to figure him out. I think though he forces some of his own views of social issues on others however, won't say who he is voting for. He taught me a lot. His work is really hard & tricky though.
A good teacher, but has a huge superiority complex. also lets his personal feelings get in the way sometimes.
My favourite teacher ever!!! he's such a good teacher! consider yourself lucky if you get him!!
Mr. Turner ROX! I never knew history was so interesting, but it turns out I was just being tought badly. Mr. Turner really knows what he's tlaking about and he makes it interesting. I don't think I'll ever forget the things he's teaching me because he makes them so interesting and memorable.
Awesome! He knows so much and he teaches really well. Who knew grade 10 history could be so interesting? He should be a university professor.
great teacher, prepares v well for university... a bit starchy and cold, though... likes to make fun of kids--don't take it personally
looking back on hs (bluh), i have to say that he was awesome! in my uni courses, things he taught me continually come up.
Made History fun and interesting. One of the best teachers I have ever had! He should teach grade 11!! Really opens your eyes to the world and why things happen
he made me think so much, and now i feel a little less ignorant. plus, its so chill that he did the ironman contest and his belt and shoes always match.
Turner is one of the few teachers to actually changes the way you think. He's a welcome change from the memorizing and regurgitating of every other class. -CCC
Great discussions, learned lots, he knows his stuff.
I have never learned more in a single class in my entire life. His only problem is that he isn't teaching any Grade 11 courses.
*His classes are great!!- I loved being in his class cause he's a chill teacher and the other kids in the class were awesome*
A fantastic teacher; spectacular prep for university. My only complaint is that he plays favorites, big time. Make yourself more open and accessible, sir.
Great teacher, fabulous discussions, nice guy. Funny too, loved the sarcastic jokes. Nice ability to show both sides of an argument. Definitely a morning guy
good enough teacher, discussions are great but textbooks were really useless, the only time we used them was when i didnt bother to bring mine.
One of the few classes that I actually feel smarter walking out of. Interesting discussions, and wicked personality. Tests are a bit too tough.
interesting class, excellent teacher, terrible person
I dont mind listening to lessons, but asking me to remember stuff on tests is too much.
excellent teacher, and very helpful. he never ceases to amaze us with his wealth of knowledge.
Fun and all, but don't assign an ISU that is a group project.
he made you think. which is something you encounter rarely in High School
deadly tests, but he's really smart. says we'll nver thingk outside the box. :P
Super amazing teacher. Kind of a waste in high school, should be a prof.
Incredible well-versed and knowledgable, his non-bias approach is great.
He's awesome. I've never thought so much ever. His tests are deathly.
Kinda made me think, i dont do it much and it was sort of refreshing.
Gives a fun class, and makes you think. Tough tests, but well worth it
