This class was very easy for me. I am a good writer, so I'm not sure how the class was for people who need practice. Dr Ek is a very nice lady and always wants to help you. You should buy her reader, but you don't really have to do the "homework" because the readings are always discussed in class. i was surprised by how interesting the topics were.

Very nice teacher. Class was really boring though. If you go to office hours she is annoyingly ambiguous with what she wants you to change in your essays. Not a hard class, mostly busy work.

Very easy class, only a letter in the beginning & 2 essays. She is helpful if you make an effort. You don't have to do the readings at home because you just talk about them in class the next time. I would definitely recommend her.

Ek is really great! She will help you but you have to make the effort to go to her office hours. Class is easy as long as you don't procrastinate on assignments because it will all lead up to a final project.

This class is so easy with this professor. She is so cute. She does have an accent but is still easy to understand. workload is very manageable, just two "essays" and one letter. I would highly recommend getting Ek as your professor for this class!!

Very interesting class and topic. Crime and punishment. Her office hours are very useful and she's easy to contact via email. I highly recommend her; however, she stutters a lot and has an accent. Class discussions were somewhat prolonged, but she keeps it going with her profound knowledge of the topic. Attendance is mandatory. Fun class.

We're not sure we can agree with these positive comments, as our experience with Mrs. Ek has been dismal. We heard she was excused from a college back east...and now we know why. Some of us think it is hard to understand her, and most of us think it's hard to gauge her actual passion for teaching writing. We're not even sure she has training in it.

Ek is very nice and wants you to do well. Do not buy the book, you will never need it. Class itself is pretty boring but assignments are easy, though unclear at times. I did all my assignments the night before and got an A-. If you are interested in law definitely take the class. Also make sure you are good at persuasive/analytical type writing.

She is very nice and the class is extremely easy, just make sure you dont wait until the last minute. You also dont need to purchase any of the books, if you want them, definitely just rent them. If you want a good grade, put in a lot of work to your research paper and have a good topic.

She's a really nice lady and the class was very easy but sooo boring. I skipped a lot though and she didn't knock points off my grade.

Super nice woman. What she wants out of a given assignment is sometimes fogy though. The books were all interesting reads, and since there are class discussions, you don't need to read the entire thing. She loves people who participate and talk. Even if you say something way off subject, she'll work with your point

She is a good teacher, reading is minimal, class discussions were fun. Three papers, one was a movie review, one comparing two articles, and one was a book review. You will get a good grade if you show up and do the work.

One Word:Horrible. She is very knowledgeable, but can't express her knowledge in words. Also, she is very unapproachable, and mean. I got a B in the class, but she had favorites, and isn't really that helpful. Didn't have to read any of the books, which was great.Boring class, so be prepared to pretend to be interested in what she is saying.

She was a pretty good prof., the class was easy and the readings were interesting. It's boring at times, but I would still recommend this class to anyone taking writing 2. She's also really nice about letting you turn in late papers and is good at explaining things.

Her class got boring, but it was super easy. I also liked the material she choose for us to read. As long as you go to class and do the papers, you should get an A.

if you like teachers who stutter, take long pauses between senteces and say "umm" after every other word, this is the teacher for you. boring class, but atleast you can keep yourself busy by counting how many times she says "um". unless "um" annoys the hell out of you.
