Comment: Ashley is incredibly helpful both in class and during office hours. She gives relevant and detailed feedback on assigned papers. Her writing workshops were the most helpful because it gave me a good sense of what is expected of us in the class. I enjoyed most of the readings too. Not an easy class but if you work hard, you will be rewarded. Great instructor overall & I highly recommend.

Comment: Keith is a great guy and a good teacher. He clearly enjoys the subject he teaches and has a lot of knowledge about many things that he shares with the class. Despite extensive reading, he gives ample time for writing assignments and provides a wealth of feedback to help you. His grading seems fair and he even gives imaginary grades on drafts so you have an idea of where you stand. He is very big on class participation so make sure you speak up!

Comment: He requires a high critical thinking skills and high writing skills as well. It's also hard to follow up what he is thinking about in class as he jumped from points to points too fast. He is helpful in office hour but its hard to get a good grade. Pretty picky...

Comment: Mary is so nice and understanding. She's funny, and she's soo good at figuring out what you're really doing in your essay. I remember going to her OH every time there was an essay and she would tell me exactly what I was thinking when I wrote the it. She tries to encourage everyone to participate in class discussions. Even though she claims to be the "hardest grader you'll ever know," I think her grading is fair. I had mostly B+'s on my essays, but I ended up with an A- in the class. That said, I worked very hard and almost always rewrote my first drafts. Revision isn't just fixing the grammar; it's alternating the whole essay! (@ least for me it was)
