It has been 11 years since I had social studies with Mr. Bartsch and I still view him as a source of inspiration to look at my positionality, think critically about existing social powers that serve to entrench inequality and marginalize minorities, and take action for positive social change. In addition to that, he views his students as capable individuals and genuinely cares for their success. I have a great deal of gratitude for this man.
He is at Riverbend Jr High now, And the man is the best teacher in that school. His HILARIOUS. Loves his stories. He actually cares about it. Roger is the best thing that's happened to Rbjh aha.
This guy is the best social teacher to ever grace this earth. This guys teaches stuff that you will need in life. I miss not having him this year. This guy is the best and i dont think il find another
Roger Bartsch is an increadible teacher. Years after high school I still feel inspired and empowered to be an activist and to make this world one worth living in.
seriously if u want to pass just go to the last few classes that he teaches cause he is the head department for S.S and he helps make DIP30 every year so he knows whats on the dip
Is very charismatic. Discusses events and inspires us to be critical thinkers. Makes learning easy. Awesome teacher. One of my favorites ever. You pay more attention if you like the teacher.
Great teacher. Challenges you to think about your political views. His teaching styles prepares you for University as it is mostly class discussion and at home assignments.
Mr. Bartsch is an awesome teacher! When i learn from him i actually understand the concept! Thanks for all the fun! Being in your class is the best time i ever have in any class!
This man, may quite possibly be one of the most brilliant teachers in the system. His sole purpose is to make you think on your own...some thing very lost to the student body these days...
Hes 1 of my favorite teachers. People can say he gets off topic but when it comes down to it he applies history to our lives and makes it fun, who wants 2 listen to a teacher read out of a text book?
Mr. B is quite a talented fella. He makes the topics interesting and asks thought provoking questions (even though they can be a pain sometimes) and besides, have you seen his son??? what a cutie <3
I think Mr. Bartsch is the best social teachers. He comitts his life to his work and loves what he does. He is very intelligent. He makes learning interesting and does a great job!he's an inspiration
Mr. Bartsch is one of the best social teachers i have ever had. he goes through the curriculum and actually makes it fun to learn about. he also heads the schools student union and the New york trip.
Bartsch is a great teacher. he usually talks more about current events more than anything , and i like that. his class is always fun and interesting.
Very funny, screaming outta nowhere haha but lots of knowledge on political issues and parties, gets off topic sometimes, but hey, if he wrote the diploma, im definitely staying in his class =)
gets off topic easily! talks about great things, but totally not what we are supposed to learn.
He doesn't teach and gets off topic VERY easily making it hard to learn from him. He needs to actually talk about the topic and not get distracted and talk about something irrelevant and waste time.
He's given me new views on things i never paid attention about oddly enough. I KNOW something.
I graduated from high school last year and am now taking political science in college because of him. its good to have a teacher that has an opinion, and hes def. one of them.
A student will be fairly lucky to have him as a teacher. Very easy going, and his lectures were both funny and educational. Treated everybody equally and graded fairly.
One of the best teachers I've ever had. Really makes poltics interesting.
Awesome teacher! Mr. Bartsch rocks:) You learn the stuff without it being boring, plus great discussions
Mr. Bartsch is one of the best teachers I have had, he makes so social isn't so blah, gives it some life, but you had better keep up with the reading.
very insightful to current events, as well as knowledgable about subject matter
he is a great teacher and is very excited about social. if your in his class you are gona do well and get excited bout social . oh yeah go team social
He was great teaching the first part of social 30, when it got to the WWII he did not teach anything..fend for yourself! and do the assigned readings.
If it wasnt for Mr.Bartsch i would have never done so good on my diploma. His thought provoking discussions and encompassing notes make SS a great class!
I've been done with high school for a couple years now, but Bartsch is still one of my all-time favorite teachers!
always talks bout current events, makes class very interesting!
One of the few teachers who actually cares about teaching. Get in his class!
