One of the worst teachers i ever had. Not clear at all. always late for his 8 am class. told my class that hes retiring because of us. Your welcome
Not so clear in his essays and assignments and he's always a little lost. But you'll learn so much more than just literature with him. We had quite a few field trips too. Too bad he'll retire soon.
amazing! I've never learnt so much. He is not only humourous but he is incredibly intelligent and knowledgable and kind..Take him if you want to have a good time. Awesome!
Best teacher ever!!! Take him and you'll get 90 for sure!!!
U have to avoid !!! really boring teacher and not clear at all when he gives assignements and when u go see him for more info he gets made his marking is unfair people barely pass in his class
I love his class. he's really funny. it's easy to pass in his class. i dont know what these people here are saying.
funny guy but very confused. cancels class alot, but gives lotz of reading hmw and hard tests. id take him again, but u should prbly avoid him unless u have a good sense of humour
It is just too hard to follow him. No one ever knows when there's a homework. Good personality, but can't teach. AVOID! Very hard assignments.
His tests are really detail based.. you could read the book and fail the test. "Who said this to whom in Macbeth?" Don't excpect high marks.. I has the highest mark in my class... 85
He's a cool teacher. We had great discussions...but his essay marking sucks and the tests are even worse. STOP! and consider someone else. I found it quite difficult.
ray rocks. definitely memorable, he knows so much about so many things and is very effective. take him you won't be disappointed
I went to class like 5 times all semester and passed...he's a funny guy, but a little unorganized. Just prepare a REALLY good oral presentation and don't do anything else all sem. and you should be fine.
very bad teacher...he talks about all and nothing..he's not focusing on the course and in the end he gives very bad marks.AVOID!
Good teacher , gives out lots of writing assignements , if u like to write a lot then tak him , the course was fairly easy
at times he says very intriguing things, if he only knew how to teach properly and not ramble about his life he would make a very fine teacher. unfortunately he's far from organized, strict and dicipline. he's a nice person though and at times funny. his class didnt feel like class at all. unless you really know your stuff and willing to ask a bunch of questions and is opinionated than i wouldnt suggest taking him.
fairly good teacher,talks too much about himself though
Worst teacher ever...just talks about himself. He does not know how to teach. AVOID AVOID AVOID AVOID AVOID AVOID AVOID AVOID AVOID
A mindblowing teacher, he will expand your horizons if you're willing to listen.
a wonderful kind teacher who takes great pride in his teaching. you can learn a lot if you listen and he's funny too.
wow what an amazing teacher. i like poetry now thanks to shankman
FREAKING AWESOME!!! best english teacher ever..hilarious
I LOVE MY MORNING ENGLISH CLASSES IT MADE MY DAY A LITTLE BETTER . HIS CLASS WAS FUNNY AND IT DIDN'T SEEM LIKE I WAS AT SCHOOL.
This guy is so cool.Hes weird at times, but hes definetly a teacher worth taking.His exams are hard though,you'll have to work hard,but you'll have a lot of fun
like good wine this guy gets better with age. He packs a lot in and demands attention and if you give it the rewards are profound and lasting. Definitely the best English teacher I've ever had.
Cool guy for Biblical Texts, but don't take him if you're not Jewish, Catholic or Christian. Doesn't take off marks for late handed in assign. Attendance isn't too formal. Tough tests though.
Shankman is one you MUST avoid if you dislike poetry, he gives you very hard assignments involving it and doesn't give much leeway for marks.
Ray is just freaken’ cool. I learned a lot about English and about life in his classes. I guess if you can't follow patterns of words strung together (generally known as sentences) you might find him hard to follow…find him disorganized, and a hard marker
Of my 2 years at Vanier, Ray was by far my favorite teacher. I look back and realize that he's taught me a lot. Does he still play the clarinet?D.C. memories
He's a great guy... I learn nothing about english, but a lot of life lessons!
Very nice man. Funky beard. Intersting classes. You all are wacked. Shankman kicks a*s
He is highly disorganized and has unrealistic expectations. He also puts students at a disavantage by rewarding others lazyness and poor excuses.
He is not organized and is not serious about what he is teaching
A good man and an entertaining teacher, and you'll learn something from him for sure, but definately big on FAVOURITISM.
I found him to be disorganized and has unrealistic expectations. He puts other students at a disavantage by rewarding lazyness.
Very very good teacher. Will help you. Not alot of work (since when are journals a lot of work!?). Made for ppl who are stronger in English.
Very demanding class. Asks u to do millions of things at once. Somewhat disorganized. Good teacher but don't relax around him !
A fantastic teacher, Understanding, informative and compassionate.
He's a fun teacher and stuff but he talks too much. Don't get him started on his personal life because it's impossible to shut him up. But Ray's an overall cool and good teacher.
Great guy and a great teacher. You will love his classes.
Ray Rocks! You got to be a bone head not to get what he is teaching!
supe nice guy...hard marker but interesting and funny
i like him! hes funny, and actually makes english fun!
Extremely nice , kind, smart. If I could, I'd take him for all my Eng. courses.
Extremely boring and hard marker, he tells pointless stories and gives the mosts
Funny guy but has no idea what he's doing in class and grades hard
Ray is stimulating teacher and a great intellectual. He teaches you to think!
Nice, makes class interesting. Take him if you want a fun Eng. class
i got reallllly sick of hearing his personal stories, about his wife especially
He can't give class notes properly but he teaches a cool class
