Is a really good teacher, and tries not to fail any of his students. If you try and show interest you will pass. Watch a lot of TV in his class.

he's VERY passionate about what he does and tries REALLY hard to make the class interesting. He gives easy marks and lots of approval for anything you say that has to do with emotions. For those of you complaining about the notes, DONT! YOU DONT NEED THEM TO PASS! Great teacher and I actually took a lot out of his class (Global Neighbourhood).. but try not to wear GAP or NIKE to class... sweatshops aren't so kosher!

Seems to be extremely boring and chaotic. His notes are are often discontinued as well as never pertaining to the class material. Although the course work is easy and he will help you if you go see him in his office. A very average teacher.

oh Marvin... bottom line, his class is easy. Just 2 essays. A lot of videos that are interesting are shown in this class, you defenetly learn a lot but he is really annoying. He's always talking about thoughts, feelings and emotions. Notes are all over the place...

i think that he is very passionate about what he does, but the bad thing about him is that whenever he starts talking about something he never finishes what he started talking about because he gets onto a whole new idea. Also when he gives notes to the class he is all over the place and doesn't really make it clear for the students to understand what he is writing down.

I don't understand why people think he's such a great teacher. He REALLY isn't. Sure he's passionate in what he's teaching, but he's really bad at teaching. Boring is an understatement and he often forgets what he's teaching, what he's taught and to which class he taught it to. He expects University type work from his students, even if you're straight from High-School doing your FIRST Humanities. Beware of this teacher, PLEASE!
