1122H Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: B
"Papers? More like novels" "Tough Grader" "Lectures are long"

She is very sweet and will help any way she can. I had her once a week for the 2hr and 40min lectures and it was killer. She is a very tough grader, dust off your MLA format books bc she marks off for very small details. She does curve your final grade though. 1 big research paper on lit as final which is 30% of grade. Class was a bit stressful.

"Tough Grader" "Papers? More like novels" "Gives good feedback"

One of the hardest classes I've ever take! Enjoyed the subject, but if I could of taken it with someone else I would have. She treats us as if we are a Comp class. We aren't, I know how to write don't teach me that teach me African American Literature! She's nice till you don't understand something or don't do what she wants. SO MANY PAPERS!

1122H Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A
"Would take again" "Gives good feedback" "Participation matters"

Dr. Magnani takes the time to go over all poems and stories read so that you are fully prepared for your papers. You are also allowed to edit two of the papers to get a better grade after you receive feedback. Mid-term was easy. You aren't writing a paper every single week so you aren't overwhelmed with homework.

ENC1102 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Class was organized, the quizzes, Mid-term and Final are very easy. The essays on the other hand were a bit of a challenge, probably because it was a short summer semester, didn’t have much time. Dr. Magani was helpful. if you email her later in the afternoon, she’ll respond the next day. So all in all, I do recommend her.

ENC 1102 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I took Professor Magnani for Comp 1 and 2 online. She is a pretty easy going teacher. She gives samples of her past students work to help guide you on your papers. She will help you, but make sure you email her early enough because she is a little slow on responding and grading. Other than that not a bad teacher.

AML1600 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B-

She's a very tough grader and expects you to be able to at least to a grad level, so if you are not into writing too much would not recommend. She has a Doctorate in Literature so her expectations are extremely high!!

She waits to grade your work til the very end of the week. Do NOT take her online. The highest grade i got(A) in her class was on a few short story multiple choice test. Other than that she loves giving C grades.

Never knew when she graded stuff, and when she does, she grades hard without much feedback. I only used the Norton Intro to Lit book although another book was recommended. If I were you, don't buy the Little, Brown Handbook. Didn't enjoy the class, but composition is not my favorite subject.

She is ok. The class is a little boring. There is a fair amount of homework. The final is 8 pages! She will give you a chance to submit and correct your work before the final grade is applied.

Not enjoyable at all. I sit there and she expects us to know what the writings are about. Hey I'm only supposed to come to class, not enjoy it. You have to really take notes about what she thinks about the writings or else you will be lost on how to write the papers. It's either her way or the highway.

This professor is amazing! I took her for comp 1 and chose her again for LIT2110. She's very helpful & willing to assist you when needed. Do the reading & participate in class & you will have no problem passing. She requires use of MLA format for all essays. I will recommend her to anyone who is looking for a great professor!

LIT2110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Be prepared to read, write and discuss in class. It is, after all, the purpose of taking it. She is informative and very helpful when you ask. She will expect you to follow MLA and stresses this whenever you write an essay/paper to be turned in. If she feels no one is reading, she will give a quiz. Would definitely take her again.

This lady is a whack job!! She has so many degrees that she just assumes everyone should know what the hell she talks about. If its not the answer she wants to hear your wrong. If your not advanced in writing it is not good enough. She teaches World Lit and 1102 and one 1101 class I think she is teaching us 1102 I would not recommend her!!

A lot of what she says goes right over my head so I could not understand some things she meant. So if you get confused easily then do not take her. If you don't like to speak out and express her self then you will not enjoy this class. She is very smart and is a great teacher, but she was just not for me.

Comp 1, papers have to be 4-5 pages, final 6-8 pages, your rough drafts are peer reviewed, alot of analyzing short stories,work in groups to answer questions about short stories. She goes by syllabus. If you do not mind this stuff then take her.

She didn't show up for the first two or three lectures and I felt as if the assignments were irrelevant and not very interesting. I decided this class wasn't for me and dropped it and I'm very happy with my new Composition II class that I'm currently enrolled in.
