J. Barbara Rose is the most dynamic and inspiring professor I ever had. She combines hard work and compassion in the most unique form that I have ever experienced. As a professor, J.

Comment:
Barbara taught optional writing classes to Bridging students on Saturday mornings - this wasn't for marks. She helped us lean grammar, how to write an essay, and she study tips for university. I kept those notes throughout my academic career. They helped me graduate #1 in my program for my BA., top 10% of my MBA, and cum-laude for my JD.

One of the worst profs I've ever encountered. Rude and a bully toward certain students. Likes to humiliate anyone that disagrees with her or answers a question wrong. Just awful.

Very rude and condescending! One of the worst profs I've had by far. If you're an independent thinker she will not like you for it.

Really made me want to think about what I have read, not just accept literature in a frame of thought of right and wrong, left or right ect. Would love to take another course with her.

Comment:
Dr Rose is exactly the kind of professor I hoped to learn from when I planned to go to U of T. She rewards critical thinking, and is vocal about fallacies and wrong answers in class; it's for our own good! I actually am seeing an improvement in my critical thinking and writing skills from her lectures. High-achieving students will value her most.

Wouldn't recommend. She shouldn't be teaching anyone. Rude, singles out students, laughs at student's answers, and you can't question her or offer a different view or opinion. Really bad professor. She does seem to provide good information but at what cost? Avoid if you can. So many people say the same thing, so why is she still teaching?

Comment:
She can be so rude and condescending. I was in her class for 1 day and dropped it because of how she treated us (mature students-Bridging students). No laptops or drinks allowed, we had to sit where she wanted us (like in kindergarten) and like others have said, don't dare ask a question unless you want to be belittled. Horrible prof!!

WORST professor I've ever encountered! She treated us like we were in kindergarten and is extremely condescending. And do not dare ask any questions unless you want to be belittle in front of everyone. I would not recommend her. No one has the right to speak to anyone the way she does to some students.

I thought I knew about literature, until I took this class and the scales fell from my eyes! Prof. Rose provides a profound understanding of the course material (and other works). Her love for teaching is obvious as she will go way above and beyond to help you succeed. If you put in the effort, your reward will be immense.

Comment:
She genuinely wants all students to succeed. She won't spoon feed you, but offers a lot of help if you ask for it yourself. If you're not ready to do that, than you're not ready to be a student.
