Mark is literally the most amazing man Ive ever met. Known him for 4 years! A lot of people dont understand his jokes and they can appear sexist, BUT they are truly jokes. He is the most kind-hearted person ever and he TRULY cares about your success in class. Super easy class. Def take Holtorf if you can.

Mark was a great teacher. He gets to know his students and grades fairly. He is also quite funny and engages in class discussions. When it came to lectures, he just talked and didn't use a PowerPoint often.

Had so much fun in his class! He is a great guy and wants you to do well. Just show up, do the work, and have fun and you will do well. He is super funny. The beginning of the year is lecture heavy but then you get out of class really early so it is nice! Definitely take him if you can!!

Didn't like the class but that was more because of the subject instead of the teacher. Just show up and participate and you'll get an A.

If you show up, you should pass. His class was interesting, and he is a funny guy. I enjoyed the class. The worst part is the group project for the final and he does not use blackboard, so it is hard to check your grades. Should be an easy A if you show up.

I took Mark for Into to Theatre was am so happy he was my teacher! He is so relaxed and the whole semester was loaded on day 1. It was a work at your own pace course but there is work to be done so dont slack! Required to attend a play outside of class, watch tv dramas and give feedback, write a shortplay, etc.. but all VERY doable!

Comment:
I took Mark for Intro to Theatre and he was awesome! If you are one for crude and sometimes offensive jokes then he is definitely the guy for you. He is very laid back but I learned quite a bit from him. He understands everyone is not an actor and doesn't look at you like you should be.

This guy is kinda funny. The class was quite easy. I believe we only had 2 tests in the class and had to write 3 papers over the plays. Attendance to the plays are mandatory but they're fun and the papers aren't too hard. The final was pretty cool too, we had to create a play and act it out in a group. Be sure to pay attention and take notes.

Very funny! Stumbles on his lecturing a lot. Teaches you A LOT. Attendance is very important. Perfect attendance=certificate suitable for framing. Sarcastic and thinks he is always right. Great classes (everything he teaches) people who don't like him or don't pass are stupid.

This guy is a hoot. I love that he had a sense of humor. More professors should be like him. I had fun in that class. Puppet show for a final was a pain, but it is easy. You must attend plays though. $5 each play. 10 points every time you go to class! You can get a perfect attendance award suitable for framing! FUN!

I took his class as a for my Fine Arts credit. It was interesting, but not a lot of fun. I got the feeling he can't stand those of us who were not Fine Arts majors. We did a puppet show for our final project which was OK, but overall the class was somewhat boring.

He is a great teacher, but needs improving on keeping his mouth shut about his personal opinions, for they steer off-course and are inappropriate. For non-majors, take Stavish.

Loves to make you think YOU are wrong. Easy teacher on assignments (because he is clear), but if you get offended easily, he does say things that will piss you off.

WOW! Funny funny funny! Great teacher, if you take Theatre, take him. He's funny and interesting and knows his stuff! If you don't take him then you're missing out, because he really is a nice guy, sarcastic and hillarious!

You need to be in class and on time, every single day because he takes attendance. The class itself isn't too bad, he makes sarcastic remarks every now and then and tells a few jokes too.
