Eng.503 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

Dr. Waxler is a great professor. His passion for literature in a book, not Ipad, is inspirational. His class is not only good for one's academic development, but also for one's soul.

ENL 251 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: A+

Waxler is very passionate about his area in study, but he is also very boring, I found myself falling asleep in class. We had a quiz once a week, very easy 5 points, just read the stories he assigns and they were actually very intersting. He goes on even when class is overy probably 5 minutes after. He says class in mandatory but i never went.

Upper level literature course on topic of "the journey"--Waxler thinks life is a journey and literature is, too. Could be he's right. Risky business anyway. I dig it!

Liked the deep exploration of specific poems from the period. Some discussion, a few quizzes, a lot of analysis. Like poetry a lot better now.

I like the way Waxler chooses interesting books and the way we engage in discussion, although the classes seem too big for that purpose. A lot of quizzes--keep us reading. And a couple of longer essays. Makes literature seem worthwhile.
