Comment:
Professor Martel is one of the best professors I had my entire undergrad at York. He is kind and passionate about teaching. I took this class summer 2020 and he handled online schooling and zoom in an incredible way. Didn't really lecture, a ton of discussion so you were never really bored if you cared about the topics. Great feedback too!

Marcel is exceptional in his teaching of the course. He is very understanding of personal situations and provides excellent feedback on assignments. He is very engaging outside the classroom, and you learn new things from him; you would never have thought otherwise. Be sure to read and follow lectures when posted!

Comment:
I took 20th century Canadian history with Martel and it was the only Canadian history course that I have ever taken which I actually learned a lot. His lectures are great, very sensible and caring towards the students and gives straight forward assignments. Show up to class and enjoy, you can also get a decent mark if you don't show up, just read.

I thought he was decent. Definitely one of the most caring professors I had! However, I found him to be somewhat of a tough grader. There are a lot of readings in this class. Make sure you keep up with the material! It's definitely fast-paced.

Although he's a nice guy, I found him to be a tough grader. He's very nit picky about details. Overall, I would say you would have to be good at writing papers if you want to do really well in his class. Genuine guy tho!

Words can't describe how great Martel is. He really cares about his students, is accommodating and tries to make what some find a boring subject very enjoyable. Also, his positive attitude makes you enjoy the class even more and inspires you to learn. The best part about this class were the discussions. Overall, Martel is York's hidden gem!

Really enjoyed his class and teaching style. He's really good at constructing a narrative, focusing on important points to know and doesn't dwell too much on side information. He's really nice, easy to talk to and has been one of the best proff's at York.

Welcome, welcome! Marcel is my top professor of all time. He is very funny (and cute). I am always cracking up in class, his accent is great. He is always very clear about what he is talking about and I think he must time his lectures (read: DEDICATED) because they are always 100 minutes on the button. All in all a funny, enjoyable class.

I Found Proffesor Martel very approachable. When I had problems to due with my essays he was very accomidating. I rarely went to his lectures after the strike just because of the pressure to get so much done in my other classes. I found TA Funke very helpful and a great marker, she really understood my work. Other TA Jason...questionable.

I had the pleasure of being in Professor Martel?s class for two years. I have to say that h is an incredible teacher. He is intelligent, helpful, HILARIOUS, and an overall awesome teacher. I can't stress enough how funny he is, and his French accent makes his jokes funnier. He is also a very cute I just want to go and hug him everytime he speaks!:)
