ENG121 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

GREAT TEACHER. A lot of students who aren't committed to their own education hate the way he challenges them, but isn't that what you're paying for? You don't pay for an average Joe to let you continue doing things the normal, easy, and often wrong, way. His enthusiasm rubs off on anybody who isn't completely apathetic to begin with.

Terrible professor. Mr. Lyons is extremely unhelpful. He always related his class examples to baseball. Too bad I have no idea who the players are; and what they have to do with sentence structure I will never get. His feedback was very confusing. Finally, I decided to ask for an example of a well-written paper. He didn't have one...

WRTG3020 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Full of himself. Wastes class time(almost the whole class) talking like a cocky pedant. Very unpleasant to interact with. Not a single classmate I talked to had something positive to say about him (12 person class). He is fairly well read, just a poor teacher.

This guy is a little crazy. More than half the time I didn't understand what he was talking about. He does care about writing, but I don't feel like what he taught us will help me be a better writer.

Lyons is very tough but extremely helpful. If you care about improving your writing then there is no better Professor for you at CU - literally.
