He doesn't teach anything at all. The only thing that he does is either show videos of history or open up the textbook and read about 10 pages. There was a lot of projects. When you hand in a test, it takes him a month to mark and bring it back.

It makes me really sad to see that a lot of students who had a passion for history had their dreams completely ruined with Bennett. All he does is show videos.

puts bizarre questions on his tests
mostly just shows us videos and tells us to take notes
will destroy your mark without telling you beforehand that you shouldn't have done whatever made him do it

It doesn't matter how hard you try, he picks marks out of a hat. You can overachieve a mile and still get worse marks than someone who did a project last minute. He puts no regard to creativity only looking for "key words". He never explained assignments or answered questions directly and then docks marks for very unreasonable parents. Overall, he's pretty bad. If you can't switch out then appreciate that you can see kids get roasted for a semester and have loads of free time everyday in class.

Mr.Bennet comes off as a nice guy at the beginning, he even lets you do absolutely no work in his class and give you random marks for no reason. Then out of no where he becomes the worst teacher ever, he's one of those teachers that has no idea what hes teaching so he bullshits and makes up information. Sometimes it is funny tho as students expose him, but he also never reads any assignments or tests you hand in as he knows his questions make no sense and even he doesnt know the answers.

A humbling presence. Stylish and yet subtlety bold. If you want adventure, then Roger is your guy. No brownies provided. However, his feline-like disposition will surely leave you meowing. Dashing in his own unique way and advanced in a multitude of technologic devices, he will never ever fail to surprise you. But he will fail you.

This man is not only incompetent but he knows it too. Entering his class will be the worst thing you'll ever do - if you're really determined and study on your own with the textbook, you'll get away with a good mark, but don't expect to actually learn anything in class. Once in a blue moon, he'll give a lesson, but only while reading off of a piece of paper! God bless.

Legit the most waste teacher ever. One of those teachers who think that being authoritative and treating his students like babies makes up for his obvious lack of knowledge, creativity and brain cells. One of the only people I know who could make such a rich and interesting subject like history incredibly dull and boring. 10/10 would not recommend.

His assignments don't make sense most of the time and neither do his test questions. Just always do what he says exactly and remember: KEY WORDS. Test questions, essays, anything. He rarely reads what you hand in, but as long as you include key words, you'll get marks. He hardly knows what he's teaching and always makes mistakes, but if you read the text book and pay attention to the movies, you'll learn everything you need to know.

Pretty chilled teacher. Had him for gr. 11 anthro/psych/soc. He shows alot of movies to explain course concepts which is nice. He might not teach, but you just need to read the textbook! One hint: check all your tests to make sure he marked them correctly (not just the addition of marks, but what's right and wrong... he sometimes doesn't know the answers to his own tests).

Bennett's pretty easy going and you can easily get good marks. However, he rarely teaches you anything, and usually doesn't answer questions. It's a pretty self taught course.

Never study for any of his classes. You'll probably end up having to draw on his 12U tests. He will never admit when he's wrong. If you're smart, he'll like you. If you're really smart, he'll hate you

Logical teacher, expects you to be good students, hands you way too many articles for you to read and answer questions from, more like a self taught course, favours gifted students, dont get him angry
