Awesome teacher we read alot of fun books in class and learned how to teach the books with different activities. This class made me excited to teach Language Arts. Just read the books and do the assignments and you will do great. All professors should be like Dr Dalton he actually teaches you how to be a great teacher.

Dr. Dalton is definitely legit. I took him for READ 3305 and READ 3306. I wish he taught READ 3307. His class is easy. The work load is not stressful at all and he gives you time to complete assignments and homework during class. He is great so hurry up and enroll in his class. =]

I got an A. Keep up with the books and it's an easy, fun class. He lets you keep working on your essays until they are perfect. The other projects are easy if you have read the books. Lots of presenting to the class and working on group projects related to the books. Good class.

ESL 3206 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Passionate and knowledgeable about subject area: ESL teaching. Required textbook reading, checks your reading notes. Prepares you for classroom and certification test. Practices what he preaches: multiple assessments, but he helps you through everything, including writing projects in the lab. Recommended.

READ 3306 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

PROS: Assignments are mainly project-based. Class goes by pretty fast because he sends the class to the computer lab. Funny at times. CONS: He can be a little rude sometimes and may call you out in front of everyone if you have done something wrong. He didn't use blackboard. A few papers to write and lots of presenting in front of the class.

Dr. Dalton is a very wonderfull professor, and makes you feel welcome. His class is easy, as long as you follow his directions. This class requires you to read around five books. But the books are fun and quite entertaining. He lets you re-do papers until a perfect score is achieved. I will take him next semester again.

READ3307 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This professor is really laid back and relaxed when it comes to due dates. He assigned 3 major assignments that were due the last day of class. In addition 3 group projects, a grammar lesson, creative writing lesson, and a social issue photostory of your choice. He accepts extra credit and I highly recommend this professor.

Took him for Read 3306. He's kind and nice. Attendance is a must and a big part of your grade. He's very strict on grading writing essay but I think that's how every college professors are suppose to be. Follow direction, ask questions and you will be fine. Easy A for me! He's a good professor.
