"Papers? More like novels" "Tough Grader" "Get ready to read"

She's very passionate and committed to her students. Butt one of the toughest grader on papers. 4 papers and a group project. "Round table" discussions were okay because all we had to do was say our opinion. Hard to get an A on a paper. Good teacher overall

"Gives good feedback" "There for you" "Skip class? You won't pass."

You will get an a or b! Do small easy assignments. You can get c's on all essays and get a B. Show her you care. Ask her what you need to improve on and your essays will get better. If you participate in class she will love you. She is cool so take her but understand you must ask her to tell you your writing weaknesses..... SON

"Papers? More like novels" "Lectures are long" "Tough Grader"

I never enjoyed the "roundtable discussions" or just the class in general.

ENG1101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Professor Schofer was the best English teacher I've ever had. Kept class simple and clear and assigned 4 easy papers that she allowed us to peer review. She knows everyone's names and if you speak up in class and stay involved she will help you get the grade you need. Fair grader and very understanding.

Loved her! Her passion for writing is contagious, but if you won't work for your grade to improve your writing, this is the wrong class for you. She is very approachable and crystal clear with her suggestions of what can help your writing. She uses drafting days so you can complete most of your work in class! Extra credit for 100% attendance.

ENG 1101- 12 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Professor Schofer is a very fair teacher who strives to have her students do well. She is always pushing you to become a better writer, but more than willing to take the time to explain things and get you to that next level of writing. This class is not the most difficult but you need to stay on top of assignments. She even allows some extra credit

There are no tests in this class, and your papers are a strong percent. Even if English isn't your strong point, you still have a good chance to do well. She's always more happy to review your work with you. If you do the couple of homework assignments and come to class she will work with you to help you succeed. Textbooks are definitely required.

ENG1101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She is a very passionate teacher. That's number one. If you want to actually learn something and become prepared for writing in college CORRECTLY, then you're taking the right class with her. If you are still in a high school mindset and prefer a teacher who will slide you along without actually getting an education, then you're taking the wrong teacher and should probably not be in college. Go work at mcDonalds and leave the degrees to the people who take it seriously. Great teacher! Loved her!

Well I took her my freshman year, I am a Junior now. She is very rude and unclear about assignments. Every essay I wrote was never good enough. I just did not like her at all. That aside, she wasnt even a good teacher.

She is a good professor. The class is not easy, but because of that I have become a way better writer. She gives interesting topics to write about. She wants you to succeed and is VERY passionate about writing. I recommend her.

ENGL1102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Prof. Schofer was a nice lady but definitely a hard grader. It seemed like nothing could please her. I never made above a C on any of the essay assignments and I opted out of 1101 with an AP test score. So I knew I wasn't just a terrible writer. She doesn't give many assignments but when she does she does not clearly explain what she wants.

Mrs. Schofer was nice enough, but came off as condescending sometimes. Easy enough class, most people should make A's and B's. Rounds your final average up a point (89 up to 90, etc.)

Easy B!! Just come to class and turn in stuff on time. She lets you re-do one of the essays. I was really having trouble & asked if I could re-do another essay I got a C- and she let me! Tough grader but she works to help you both in class and outside of class thru emails. She seems to care about the class.

Comes off as rude and condescending, but in reality is much nicer than she acts. You just have to show her than you are willing to work for a good grade. If you do, she will be more than willing to help you. I think she probably bumped some of my grades up just because I showed that I was putting forth some effort. Just show her that youre trying.
