"Tough Grader" "Lectures are long" "Participation matters"

Professor Diomede is scary at times. This professor would yell at students for coming in 2 minutes late and, he goes off on tangents almost in a rage like form. I didn't learn a thing because I was always on pins and needles with him.

All he does is talk about his life and sidetracks a lot. The class is very easy but I did not learn anything.

He is very smart teacher, but he has hard time actually teaching. I hard time learning in the classroom . He does not give final grades . He tells you to figure it out on your own. The LBH is the textbook you will mostly have to rely on.

ENC 1102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: A

You will have to write ALOT of papers and make sure you read the textbook because he will ask you questions about the text. This class was confusing and I didn't feel like I was learning anything because the professor is scattered brained. He loves groups so be prepared on that. Presentations every week, so be prepared. I passed with an A though.

Knowledgeable in his craft, but very insensitive. Told me I was "off the wall" for getting an answer wrong. I took him for summer and he killed a whole hour each session just discussing his personal life and NOT the actual lesson. So in other words, take him at your own risk.

Tough trying to understand what he wants from you but in the end it is well worth the trouble. Towards the end of the semester I finally began to appreciate his very broad lesson in writing, life, and professionalism. Don't be late and don be distracting -he will call you out on it!

FAIR PROFESSOR AND STRESSES HUMBLENESS. REALLY LIKES IMPLEMENTING GROUPS. THE MAJORITY OF THIS CLASS IS WRITING ESSAYS AND REVIEW OF MOSTLY BASIC GRAMMAR EACH WEEK. IF YOU'RE ALREADY PRETTY STRONG IN GRAMMAR, YOU MAY GET FRUSTRATED IN REACHING A GROUP CONCENSUS FOR EACH PROBLEM AND TRYING TO GET YOUR PART OF THE TEAMWORK DONE.

He is a very passionate teacher about writing. His pet peeve is student missing class and being late but over all is very helpful and interested in students learning how write papers properly and think.

Great prof, he teached me how to write and think. He is strict but fair. If you go to class on time and study you will do good.
