BEST CLASS EVER! Best prof ever. Connected really well with the material Benita taught and her style of teaching. She ensures it's a safe space for poc, lgbtqia, and women. She kicks ass with teaching, and you learn a lot about privilege. The bad reviews you see here are from ignorant students who don't want to confront their own privilege.

Hypocritical - treated students in opposition to standards of respect laid out in syllabus. Assumes the worst of the entire class in terms of class knowledge and respect. Avoids the major concerns brought to her about teaching style.

SOCI 310 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Benita has convincing knowledge about Canadian society but lacks teaching skills. She teaches one day out of the week (other day presentations) very vague with the policy paper and not as helpful for the final prep.

WMST 305 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Benita is an amazing instructor if you are willing to critically examine both yourself and your own privileges and dominant societal discourses. She cares for her students deeply and engages with the material rigorously. Her knowledge is amazing and you can tell she's done her homework. Come prepared to engage.

AVOID! She is extremely hypocritical and biased. She does not listen to opinions that differ from her own. Shuts down students and forces them to take on her opinions in order to get good grades. Will never take a course with her again

Unfortunatly thinks she is an expert on teaching methods and does not clarify when needed. She was very passionate and good lecturer, yet horrible with emails. One assaignment was so unclear that most of the class did it wrong, yet when I asked her she just repeated the syllabus instructions and only after did she acknowledge a lack of clarity.

I really struggled during the course but now I can connect what we learnt in class with work and family. Dr. Bunjun was a hard teacher but now I get it.

quite a shock getting this prof after first term with rima. who takes attendance in 3rd yr with 100 ppl in a lecture? group presentations on readings every week, so she only actually lectured once/week. she didnt teach much, mostly readings. read everything for midterm the week before and got a 92 on it. policy paper was brutal. no final.

Dr. Bunjun's style of teaching is clear and she explained how to do the policy paper, including giving examples. I appreciated what she had to offer and would take a course with her again...she really made me rethink many aspects of Canadian society.
