Comment: She DOES NOT explain how to write an essay that pleases her... I thought I knew how to write before taking this class but apparently I don't because no matter how much time or effort I put into papers, I usually get a bad grade. Fortunately, she allows for rewrites of every paper so you have the opportunity to go into office hours and beg for hints on how to make your paper better the second time around.

Comment: Really tough grader and sometimes vague in describing what she wants from you. However, she is very knowledgable in her subject and enthusiastic about the literature, and always open for discussion during office hours.

Comment: Essay prompts were pretty broad, which was good if you had a topic you wanted to write about. However, it's bad if you don't really know where you want to go with your paper. However, she has office hours that are helpful, so go to them! Dara is enthusiastic and very knowledgable. Just make sure you keep up with the reading and looking up background information will be very helpful as well! This is a class that you need to work for your grade though, so be prepared!
