"Gives good feedback"

4 Online Quizzes, 3 750word Essays. Plenty of time to do everything. We read some interesting literature. All of her lessons are based on cultural issues. My only problem with her is that she didn't try to change some students bigoted views. She just asked open ended questions instead of explaining that their views were offensive and outdated.

"Tests are tough"

She focuses heavily on her lectures. Your readingmedia assignments will not be what is heavily tested on. Tangent comments that she arbitrarily inserts in her lectures though are vital if you want to pass this course. Your assignment list is a lie. Heavily research any literary work she mentions. Watch her lectures first.

ENC 1102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Overall an easy class. A lot of materials to read which I often found to be inappropriate, such as an old playboy magazine article, or a poem about how to get with girls of certain races. You don't really learn much at all about composition. She claims to be accepting but look out if you disagree with her.

Prof. Grajeda is by far the best teacher I've ever had. She doesn't just give you stuff to do and leave it at that. She is there to ask questions and will listen to whatever you have to say. Other than that she's super funny and easy to listen to. Highly recommend her if you need to take comp 1 or 2

Great Teacher! she gives students a whole lot of slack at the end of the semester. But throughout the semester there is a few papers required and peer responses and like 3 quizzes then your done. she offers extra credit too. If you get any thing less than a B then you should just drop out.

ENG 2100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She's a pretty great person, but I'm not sure if I see her as a real teacher/professor. I think she has a huge interest for the things she teaches and relates well to others, but I don't feel a connection with her class. I would recommend taking her film class, it could be so much worse. She just needs to structure herself better.

ENC1101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I loved my ENC1101 class. I took it over summer. We did 5 mini essays, a research paper and about 20journals, which were super easy.She really takes the time to go through your essays and gives you excellent feedback.My writing improved a lot. I couldn't take her for my ENC1102 because of my schedule.A little disorganized but overall is excellent.

ENC 1102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

It was very unclear when things were due. I found most of the literature that she had us read was extremely inappropriate for a class room setting. The discussions were interesting, thought inappropriate at times. For someone who claims to be very accepting of other people's beliefs, she sure is one opinionated person.

She provides weekly packs instead of a textbook. They were easy to understand and follow. The online work could have been better organized but she warned the class that this was her first time teaching an online course so kinda expected. She helped me by email when I was lost which was a real plus. Overall pretty painless for an english class.

Talk about information overload! Way too much info to print out! She was unorganized and was gone out of town twice during our semester and unreachable! I dreaded everyday and did not enjoy it at all! Took too long to get essay grades as well!

Professor G is AMAZING!!! You will enjoy her class and love writing for her. She is gracious on grading, encouraging, and AVAILABLE!!! My only complaint is that she is a bit unorganized but it ends up working in your favor. She is lenient in attendance and gives lots of constructive critiques to help you improve your skills. TAKE HER!!!

ENC1101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

No textbook. Each week, you get a packet covering what you need to know for that week. You cannot pass weekly quizzes without reading it. Most of the work is toward the essay draft. Not a lot of fluff. 3 essays, one revision. SHe gives you comments before you turn in your paper for a grade. Keep up with the work = Easy A

AML2011 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Class was very disorganized. Never have a clear understanding of what is due. She posts all reading into a .docx file which could be printed for 30$. Supposed to be 3 essays and class discussions for overall grade however for class she missed 2 weeks and made 1 essay/disscusions worth 50%. Makes you thinking about literature, and hard grader.

She is an awesome teacher. She is willing to work with you and help you in what you need. You dont use a textbook. You just write 4 Essays in the whole class, nothing else. No Tests!She is very interesting and funny/sarcastic. Her class is not stressful.

ENC1102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Looks your typical literature type, but you come to know otherwise pretty quick. In class discussions (like 20% of the grade), she adds twist to make you think outside the box. Not in a pushy way though. She actually wants you to think on your own. Just be able to back up what you say. No textbook-creates her own. $30+ to print. And always helpful.

Professor G is one of my favorite professors. I took her for ENC 1101 and 1102. Final grades are based off of four essays, class participation, and one or two quizzes. She is very helpful and easy to talk to if you are confused about an essay and have questions. Do the readings, formulate your own opinions, and participate in discussions= A.
