Prof. Uttich is a wonderful instructor. She's helpful, understanding, and doesn't make things too difficult. She doesn't ramble, but gets straight to the point teaching the concepts. I enjoyed her.

Professor Uttich is delightful. She somehow manages to make what could be a dull class into something fun. She goes through slides quickly but does post them online. Tests are easy and she grades fairly.

She's amazing. Doesn't try to trick you on tests. She's funny. Really understanding, if a lot of people miss a question she'll usually throw it out. (Except on the midterm, unless EVERYONE missed it). Loved going to this class.

CRW Theory & Prac, hybrid course. Classroom was way too big. Never workshopped stories at all. Still, learned and TA's were also superb. Just wouldn't say I gained a lot more than refining what I knew and helping me work my writing muscle. Would take again in a smaller class. Great personality.

She is absolutely ADORABLE! Very funny and gives you things you can actually work with. Obviously if you don't have an interest in writing you'll die but otherwise you're fine. She gives you readings and there are responses due and you'll need an iClicker. The TA's weren't my favorite. Read before class and you're golden. She helps students a lot!

She is one of the most helpful teachers I've had in college, I will take her again when I can. She's funny, nice, and understanding.

Excellent class and professor. She is very helpful and very thorough in her grading and responses. I took the class online and it was a lot of reading and writing. You will have to share with the class, so be prepared for that.

Mixed mode theory & practice course; Uttich is the bomb! She's so funny and interesting. Sometimes her lectures are unorganized, but they're easy to follow anyway and she posts them online. All the reading she assigns is interesting, gives you fun flash fiction prompts to keep you writing. Super helpful, taking her again for nonfiction workshop.

Very nice lady. Interested in her students and wants them to succeed. I still haven't understand how she grades things , though. Test questions can be very unclear, and you will get a worse grade on papers than you anticipate. If you don't attend class, you'll have a hard time passing. Awesome lady, just inconsistencies with grading and clarity.

Excellent class. Professor Uttich is funny and her lectures are interesting. I had to write three papers, and all were topics that I enjoyed writing about. Grading and exams were fair. Definitely get the books because you will need them for discussions, exams, and quizzes.

Prof. Uttich is great and makes this class really easy and fun. Attendance is mandatory if you want to get the iClicker points for class and she posts her slides on Webcourses so you can take notes at your own pace. The online assignments are really easy and they push your creative ability, just follow the directions (especially the word limits).

I learned a lot! Class was interesting and relatively easy if you go to all lectures, pay attention, and do the work she gives which isn't a lot. Exams are online, some ?s are a bit confusing, but since they're online it's easy. She also gives an insane amount of extra credit opportunities but you don't need them to get an A. I know I didn't.

Here's the thing: Prof. Uttich is a great teacher; however, the structure and size of the class is ludicrous and terribly impractical. Of course, UCF had to cut back in order to give the University president an ENORMOUS raise, so oh well.

Only reason you go to class is clicker points. You don't have time to take notes because she goes over her powerpoint so fast. Her midterm my whole class failed she it felt bad and gave us extra points 300 only 100 took the test. Online work is easy as long as you keep up with it but i wouldn't take her again

Professor Uttich is not only intelligent and has a great sense of humor. This is the best writing class I have ever had at UCF. She makes homework fun and I looked forward to her video lectures. She uses clips from movies and stories that are easy to read. I took this class online and in the summer. I highly recommend Professor Uttich.

ENC1102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I took Uttich for 1101 and 1102 and got A's both times. SHe is by far the nicest professor I have ever had. I'm not that great in English and shes not a tough grader. However, she gives annoying reading reflections that are time consuming and in my opinion pointless. Overall, I would take her again. P.S. Do not buy the MLA book. You do not need it.
