Mike is the only prof I have had that has changed the way I think beyond the classroom. Engaging lectures, entertaining stories and interesting reading material. If you haven't thought of why you want to become a teacher you will after taking a course with him.

Really enjoyed Mike's class, hoping to get him again. His lectures were really informative, however I wish we could have done a bit more interaction in class.

Mike is easily, without a doubt, the most important and impactful teacher I've ever had. If you study education at the UofW, make a point of taking any classes he teaches.

Absolutely the best teacher Ive ever had. I've spent 5 years in school and can honestly say that this is the first class I have learnt in! Very clear, very challenging mentally (but not at a point where you don't understand) HE WILL CHANGE HOW YOU THINK. His class(Just and Effective Schools)should be a requirement for all People never mind students

Comment:
Had two courses with him back in the 90s. As I write my thesis, I realize that he had a lasting impact - I'm still using texts and articles from that course! He can be a bit conspiratorial in tone, but does respect variant points of view.

The BEST prof I ever had throughout all 6 years I went to University. After taking a course with him in my 4th year, I literally made my schedule around what he was teaching the next year. He has so much experience that he has a story for any situation in the teaching field. Very intriguing! Do yourself a huge favour and take a course with him!

Bergsgaard only taught 2 of our classes... but i can honestly say that they were 2 of the most though provoking lectures of my entire University career (and I've been here for 7 years!). Everyone in Education should be required to take a course with him or at least read one of his articles. Too bad he's not our real prof :(

Mike was a great prof. The student presentations get somewhat tiresome in this class, but Mike is very engaging when he is speaking. I highly recommend this class.

Prepare to be challenged and prepare to explain why you are in the teacher profession. If you are passionate about teaching, you will get to the roots of your passion through this class. You will learn how unfair the public school system currently is, but then you will be given hope. Awesome prof!

The most insightful and interesting professor I've ever had. He's a decent human being too. If you go to university to learn then take a class with him. If you judge a teacher by the grades he gives you then you are a tit.

Mike is a great teacher and definitly one of the best that i've ever had. I would only get up for 8:30 in the morning for him. The only thing that he should do is teach more instead of having all the students teach the class everyday.
