Comment:
I had little interest in history until I took Canadian history with Dan Hawthorne. He is by far the most entertaining instructor I have ever had. He knows his stuff and you will too after a semester with Dan. He is an excellent instructor. I plan on taking his sports history class simply because he is instructing it.

Such an entertaining teacher. his writing is completely illegible, but hilarious to watch him do it. writes on the wall if he runs out of board space! hard marker on essays, but tells you almost exactly what will be on the test. i would totally take another course with him.

If you want him to notice you, wear a mickey mantle or bobby orr jersey to class, or else ask him about either player, i guarantee you'll quickly be on his good student list.

Best Prof I have ever had. His knowlegde can't be matched. He covers everything, and makes you want to listen in his class. His passion is passed on to his students, and his class is a pleasure to attend.

If you found history boring, take a class with Dan, he will change your PERspecTIVE on history. He made his classes fun and INterESSting and the split clasSES were helpful. Also his respect for Robert Gordon Orr and Mickey Charles Mantle are amazing.

Dan is an extremely clear lecturer. All of his lectures are presented in a systematic fashion with board cues and overemphasized words to make sure key themes and concepts stick. However, he's sort of crazy and manages to mention hockey every class.
