He doesn't even teache, just sits on his phone and makes us watch this really long videos, but you can be in your phone so its ok... if you want to pass cultural currents TAKE HIM .
took roger for theatre and he's quite easy going, sometimes his assignments don't make sense and he wants whatever you're handing in to be perfect. he gives a lot of time for class performances, but he doesn't actually give constructive criticism he just makes us do skits and improv for fun.
I've only been at Vanier for 1 semester now and i had roger for theatre 1 along with cultural currents. He was definitely one of the two favourite teachers i had at vanier. funny, CARING, understanding and so much more. If youre the type of person who is shy, take him for theeatr. he will make you come out of your shell in no time
Really easy to get good grades just show up to his class, he is a nice guy even tough he sometimes picks on some students .
lots of different things I can say but all im gonna say is if you wanna pass easily in cultural currents, TAKE HIM. even in theatre, its really easy to get good grades if you just show up.
Really nice, it was pretty laid-back and easy. I had him in cultural currents though, and it was kind of annyoying because we only watched videos, he almost never taught anything. Still, easy and calm class.
He's ok. The activities in class are fun but I feel like he didn't really care about the effort we put into the work. He was most of the time on his phone instead of helping us.
Meh. he is a good teacher, chill, but never take him in the morning. He doesnt like when ppl yawn. and if you take him for Theatre Performance 2, don't expect to put on a play at the end of semester. For at least 4 years now, no one did do a play. Good luck
amazing person and teacher. Learnt a lot in Theatre 1 but not in Theatre 2.... really slack, no homework and you can get by with anything in his class
I worked with Rog on The Trip For Tolerance and took drama. He's a great guy and genius with an eclectic teaching style and some vast knowledge. You can learn more from him than most other profs if you want to. He includes students in his own experimental processes which some might not be able to fully appreciate or handle, because hes passionate and that can get intense. If you wanna coast through art school don't take him because I wouldn't change a thing about Rog!
Excellent class, excellent teacher! Roger's passion for the arts is contagious!
I've studied 2 careers and had many teachers in my life. Roger is by far, the best teacher I've ever had... He's the one teacher whose lessons I still remember. If you're reading this wondering if you should take his class, DO IT. One of the things that stuck with me is that he made me understand that an actor must know as much as possible in order to interpret life. He made me develop a hunger for learning about everything, not just theater. Take his class, you'll remember it for life.
Roger is by far my favorite teacher at Vanier. It didn't start off as a love match though, far from it. The first time I met Roger I wanted to run from his room crying and never come back. I'm glad I did because once I got over myself, improved my attitude, and made an effort our dynamic changed. He became someone I truly respected and admired. I learned a lot with Roger and had a blast doing it. If you have a problem with Roger chances are the problem is you.
Be respectful, do the work, be in class, and show some passion; these are the things Roger teaches and therefore expects and requires of you to earn good grades. Do that and you will have no problems.
Interesting character, knows a lot of stuff.
Makes classes entertaining and interesting; not your average teacher at all.
I cannot stress the fact any further then simply saying Roger is not a good teacher. One would usually claim that in order to be a proper Theatre teacher you need charisma, discipline and respect. Non
Very strict. Just try, and don't skip and you'll pass. He tends to forget that he assigned things the last class.
Those who write bad reviews about Roger are too sissy to handle the real world. Yes, he's specific and strict about his guidelines, but if you can't follow instructions - you can't be successful, espe
Roger may come off as a critical teacher at times, but it is for the best. He is a knowledgeable and great teacher, providing good advice to his students to carry on in the professional world. He is a
He really cares about us.. thats why hes very straightforward but he's actually a really good guy with a big heart
Greatest teacher, the first impression will freak you out, but once you get to know him he steals your heart. Ppl who bad mouth simply didn't gave him a chance. Really worth it trust me I m picky.
Roger is a cooky, zany kind of guy..but he is what you expect if you want to go into theater and/or film! Honestly, he is one of the nicest teachers and you'll learn alot in his classes! Recommeded!!
As far as I'm concerned, Roger is one of the best Vanier teachers. Some people may not get him, especially first-timers, but he cares, and in this crazy educations ystem, that's saying a lot. Kudos!
Roger cares!That's something other teachers stop doing a long time ago. He's funny,witty,intelligent and passionate.What more could you ask fro a teacher?Your laundry maybe?Seriously kids GROW UP!
I'm shocked with his rating because ROGER IS AMAZING!!!! He might have his bad days but his classes are woth it. All you have to do to get a good mark is show him you're having fun.
AMAZING, AMAZING AMAZING!Overall, the students in the class were awesome, therefore, he never yelled, so i don't know what some of you people are talking about. MOST AMAZING class ever. ROGER IS GREAT
This guy always found a reason to get mad and yell at someone in class, Every Single Class. Not enjoyable, and whats sad is that his classes could be awesome if hed only calm down and control himself.
Roger's excellent. People often say that they're scared of him, and with good reason. But he's a great guy with amazing ideas and techniques. He just has a short temper! Don't test it too much!
HIS CLASS IS ALL ABOUT IF U HAVE A GOOD BRAIN OR NOT IF U STUDY U GET 85+ IF U DON'T 20 THERE IS NO 50 OR 60 IS EITHER U DO POORLY OR WOOOWWWBUT HE NICE CLASSES ARE NOT BORING U CAN BRING SUBJECT
I don't know how any of you people can give this awesome teacher lower than 5 in any of the 3 categories (easiness, helpfulness, clarity).. He's really amazing and loved his Theatre Workshop 1 class!
We didn't do much related to theatre. But he was a good teacher, we did learn rare facts. He teaches what he preaches, knowing a little about a lot. If you're sensitive he's not for you!!!
This guy is brilliant! One of the best teachers I've ever had. Great guy. People who see him as mean and condescending should not go into the entertainment industry cause you'll meet people much worst
Amazing, absolutely amazing. He is very hard at first; very confrontational, but as long as you do what you're asked, you won't have any problems. I have him for theater, and LOVE his class to bits.
One of my favourite teachers at Vanier. Very understanding, very easy marker. He just wants you to enjoy yourself, whether you want to be an actor or not. He acts angrily towards everyone in the beginning of each semester as a sort of a test, to make sure the students who are there are ready for anything. After afew weeks he becomes a very nice man and is the kind of guy who will help you whenver with anything. Very VERY interesting assignments!
the course is REALLY easy. hes gonna be rough and yelling and all at first but after he becomes very easy. VERY easy marker.
all we did during the entire semester was watch clips on youtube while sitting comfortably on couches.
I lovee Roger but he sometimes doesn't know what he's teaching and misses a lot of classes. That's a good thing though, anyway he's greattt ..take him!!
Roger's a good guy, I've worked with him on many progects and he's probably the only reason that I graduated and got into Film Production at Concordia. It's not like acting students have the best rep.
(had him for cultural currents) I loved the class and barely showed up (.. came to maybe 1/2 the classes... maybe) never handed in anything. and got an 87. i don't know how i did it. but voila!
If you want someone who is real, who will talk to you without being condescending, and will teach you things without you even knowing it, this is the man. Everyone who's said that they didn't learn anything from him, completely missed his point. He has a lot more to offer than you've realized.
meh i got a 77 just for putting on a good show.. i didn't even bother hading in my assignments or my note book
ROger is absolutely awesome i had him for theatre and had the greatest time it was by far my favorite class to date. You can be as creative as you want and he is really fair. Roger ur the best!!! and marnie is horrible compared to you in fact she takes everything too seriously and u at least have a sense of humour.dino
He dosent seem to know much about theater, i didnt learn any skills to perform or anything. We worked on the same skit for the entire semester in theater, and we didnt even end up performing it, and he is an unfair marker! Beware!
Great teacher... such an enjoyable class! We just had a good time! Unfortunately not much is learned though. Roger is really great.
I joined this class hoping to gain experience in theatre and was thoroughly disapointed. I didnt gain anything from this class except how to do nothing all semester!
ROGER IS THE BEST TEACHER IN THE WORLD! BOOM BOOM!!! EVERYDAY IN THAT CLASS FEELS LIKE X-MAS OR NEW YEARS! YOU LEARN ABOUT ANYTHING YOU WANT TO LEARN. HIS CLASS IS LIKE WATCHING CONEN O'BRIAN MAKING FUN OF A MIDGET ON A TRICYCYLE! THNX SIR...U WERE THE BEST. SO MANY GOOD THINGS TO SAY ABOUT THIS TEACHER...THE SKIES THE LIMIT! FROM A SCALE FROM 1 TO 10 HE IS 11! STAY URSELF AND DONT LISTEN TO ANYONE! UR A GREAT TEACHER THE WAY U ARE!
u can speak to Roger about anything, he is a great teacher, fun, funny, doesn't give to much work and when he does it's awsome and amusing to take part in.
Roger is nice and fun. His class is the only one I look forward to.
Roger rules, you just cant take him for granted when hes easy or else he'll be mean, otherwise take him i loved him... AVOID MARNIE!! Roger is much MUCH better.
Dont disrespect him and he'll like you. His class is just fun. Even if you are not good in theatre, it's still great. Amazing person!
Roger is my favorite teacher in Vanier. Don't listen to what others say. I know you're looking to see if he's easy and he is and i know you are looking to see if he's nice and he is. He is funny except he may blow up sometimes but he's human. BEST TEACHER
not very profesional and he screams all the time, bad jokes. but easy. slacker course
roger is a great teacher! he loves what he does and this makes you want to participate.If you can take him...do so,you wont regret it!
his classes are fun and laid back, but most of the time nothing is accomplished, you dont learn anything
Don't do much in his class, sometimes authoritative...but very COOL guy!
Roge is the best! Perfect balance of learning and having fun! Awesome class
Can be very harsh some times, but in the end its all for the benefit of the kids
