He is a very good, enthusiastic and knowledgable teacher. He is always clear and concise and makes the material very interesting. He shows a few movies that were extremely interesting; so much so that I still talk about it occasionally with people. He seems to genuinely want his students to succeed, not just in college but in life.

Wow, he is such an amazing teacher. Probably the best teacher I've had in college. Genuinely cares about his students and their education. One of the only classes I enjoyed every minute of, take him!

Amazing class and teacher! One of the only classes where I actually obtained information and can still recite it back 6 months later. The class has such an interesting subject and his methods of teacher are wonderful. He requires you to read Ishmael, an amazing and life changing book. Once you have this class, you will NEVER look at life the same.

Incredible teacher. Not only is he very captivating, but he is not an aggressive environmentalist. DO NOT be afraid of that before taking the class. I think most of what you learn is what the class inspires you to learn about yourself. This is one of those rare classes that changes lives. It should be mandatory.

I really enjoyed this class. It gives you a mild in-depth view of today's environmental issues. He is a professor that knows he stuff. You don't take any tests but weekly group quizzes. As well, you right 2 page journals (double spaced)on articles from a packet. Overall this class is easy and very informative of the issues of the world around us.

He wants to turn environmentalism into a quasi-religion. He's very opinionated. On controversial issues he will only display his side. I expected a sober look at possible solutions to enviro problems. However, there is almost none of that. It is mostly marginal enviro issues used as justification for his own set of ethics.

Dr. Mark gave me more help, more time, and a better boost to my career (such as it is) than the rest of the WHOLE COLLEGE COMBINED. If you want to, as he says, "seize control of your education"-- then get on the Dr. Mark train. Feel the love, for cryin out loud.

He is a great teacher and he cares about what he is teaching. He assigned a lot of reading and he knew it. It is good material. The best part was he told us he assigned to much and he assigns it in oder of importance so if your swamped one day he understands he issues too much. overall, great teacher, great class and good guy

Dr. Mark's class was one of the best classes that I have taken in my academic career. He is a inspirational teacher who cares about his job and his students. After taking his class I feel much more knowledgeable and confident.

Don't take his classes if you have a working knowledge of the enviroment. He is a creepy guy who teaches as if we are living in the 60's. If you want to get a job locally that involves the environment do not mention that you studied under Mark.He is a JOKE in the professional environmental community. He would be a great grade school teacher.

He is outstanding! Love him! Take as many classes of his as you can and your GPA will thank you! Also, at the end of the semester, he asks you to give yourself a grade. Give your self a good grade because that is the one you will get. Really!
