Comments on the course

One of the worst courses I have ever taken in terms of being respected as a student and as a human.

Course Content

Did not learn anything tangible. It was useful; I saw firsthand how disrespect and narcissistic tendencies can turn a fellow human into a disgusting animal.

Comments on the professor

Benson Honig is one of the most disrespectful and underqualified individuals I have ever encountered. From the very first class where Benson informed us students that he had zero monetary incentive to perform, he has been an ugly stain on what was an otherwise mediocre semester. Benson stated that his financial position implied that he was motivated to create good experiences for students. However, the lack of a numerical grade (the course is pass/fail) in combination with the few assignments received and utter disinterest exhibited by Benson in class was indicative that he simply did not care to be an educator.

Not to mention, the professor accuses students of being pro-genocide when they suggest that “the culture fostered by the Canadian government encourages us to be ignorant of issues faced by Indigenous peoples”. He goes on rants about how we, as young adults, are to blame for Indigenous problems as we haven’t done anythi...read more

Course Content

We learned how to tiptoe around the ego of a white man who thinks he can save the world by yelling at children. Also how to make a settlement in a foreign country dependant on the resources and non-existent expertise of the aforementioned children.

Comments on the professor

I’ve covered it all, but good lord I did not imagine having to take a course on how to be a white saviour while also trying to not damage a grown man’s ego.

Advice

Don’t raise your hand. It’s not worth hearing whatever he’s going to say.
