Comment:
(During online per covid regulations) He gives a LOT of clear comments on the essays you submit. I didn't do well on my first paper but with the rest, after I followed his comments my essays were getting >80%. You will have to read the books he gives you and it really depends on how well you articulate your opinions/analysis/arguments.

Would take his class again, so good at making education the most interesting topic in the world, expresses his opinions and views very clearly, will make you think outside the box, not the typical education class, best professor I've ever had! He once told a story in class and I literally cried, he did too, a little, he truly cares about education.

MIKE ROCKS. This guy is so friggin funny and knows how to keep things entertaining. His way of explaining concepts is great and I never got bored during the 3 hour lectures (night class). A fair marker and gives good feedback. Missing classes isn't recommended for this course but he's entertaining to listen to so it's all good. My fav prof here!!

Michael is hard but he truly cares about his students and can be reached out of class. He honestly makes you a better writer and makes you think hard. Didnt do too well in the class but I learned a lot. Hands down best professor youll ever have in your university career. Attend class and pay attention and youll do reasonably well.

I would highly recommend Michael as a teacher. He makes English classes fun to attend and is more than willing to help when you are struggling. Gives extensions when needed and is gracious with marking. Going to class isn't mandatory but the syllabus doesn't fully explain assignments so I recommend either showing up or booking a meeting with him

I absolutely loved taking a class with Michael. He has a passion for the subject I honestly have never seen before. I even developed a weird little intellectual crush on him, to be honest. This course will expand your reading skills in ways you never thought possible. Highly recommend!

Extraordinary. Easily the best professor the English Department has. I could feel the fireworks going off in my head when he lectured, and every single class I was able to make connections that I had never been able to make before. I've never felt so inspired to do well for a professor, his passion and brilliance are obvious.

In it for the learning? Take Trussler. He may be strongly opinionated but he's surprisingly even-handed and you could spend hours debating him if time allowed. Generous with extensions; crazy tough marker; his feedback is effective. Confidence in your English & essay skills feels like a prerequisite to even scrape by, but you learn a hell of a lot.

Would not take another class from him. Expresses very strong political opinions every class that do not relate to the class at all. He likes to preach his opinions loud and clear. Provides good feedback on essays.

Definitely the best class I've ever taken. I found the content interesting and moving, carefully selected by Mike to offer a range of different styles. Mike's classes aren't easy, but because he's so knowledgeable I was inspired to push myself and really work hard on my essays.

Trussler is the best professor you will have at the University of Regina. He is a brilliant mind, and if you skip his class you are wasting your tuition because few know their stuff as well as he does. He's hilarious to boot.

Comment:
Dr. Trussler is one of the best professors I have ever had; he is an absolutely brilliant man. His Literature and the Holocaust class was absolutely incredible, and I am sad to see this class come to an end. Yes, a hard marker, but you will be rewarded if you put in the effort. His comments on essays are very helpful. I highly recommend.

Comment:
A very interesting teacher, but an extremely hard marker. In other engl classes I have taken I have an mid 70 average. However, his midterm and final essay give me and average of 59%. Lots of effort went into that essay and I got a 58%. I have never been marked that severely. So take his class if your okay with getting a lower mark.

Comment:
Literary theory is incredibly hard to grasp, but Mike uses real world, relate-able comparisons and is always willing to answer questions. He has high expectations, but he really wants you to learn and to think for yourself. His knowledge is intimidating, but I always learn so much from him. He also grants extensions without requiring a reason.

wow. honestly the best prof I've ever had - he marks hard, but if you work with him, and give effort - he will do what he can to help you. I will always be grateful to Dr. Trussler for the help he gave me, and for what I learned in his class. If you get a chance - take a class. Amazing man, and amazing teacher.

This is my second class with Trussler and he is amazing. Definitely expands your horizons. If you talk with him and challenge him, he will respect you. Same with essays - go beyond! I almost failed his lit class and came out with an 85%. Understanding, intelligent and extremely helpful.

Comment:
Fascinating prof: relates Literature to the search for meaning, philosophy and literary theory, etc. Passionate lectures, he enjoys what he does and attempts to engage students in a thought-provoking way. Difficult marker, exams are particularly tough, but he's not close-minded and will listen to ideas counter his own. I highly recommend him.

Comment:
Awesome teacher. He tries to ensure that you understand the material, and is very understanding if you need to ask for an extension on your essays. He is a tough marker, but leaves very good commentary on assignments. I would consider him if I choose to take another English course.
