ENG 110 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A-
"Inspirational" "Hilarious"

Dr. Putz is awesome. He has a great personality that makes a required English class better than most. He'll swear on occasion which adds some life to the lecture and is always clear on what he wants. There were only three papers due that accounted for about 85% of the grade, but there was tons of time to work on them and improve them. Great prof!

"Participation matters" "Hilarious" "Would take again"

Dr. Putz is a great professor. He understands its a gen ed. Course, and he makes it as fun as you can make a gen. Ed. Writing class. He is hilarious, as he uses profanity A LOT, but it makes class much more easy to pay attention to. He only has three papers, and he gives alot of in class time to work. Take Putz, i guarantee he is most fun.

"Get ready to read" "Hilarious" "Tests? Not many"

Putz is really laid back. His lectures are relaxed and funny. He likes harmlessly poke fun at the entire class which I found funny and would say it right back to him. For those of you who have a problem with his swearing, just don't his class and please go back to middle school. It keeps things interesting when he goes hilarious tangent rampages.

"Gives good feedback" "Would take again" "There for you"

Give you a lot of time to work in class, throughly explains things. He splits up the deadlines to make the work super manageable. Definitely keeps class interested(sometimes by use of the F bomb). I really like this teacher.

"Hilarious" "Participation matters" "Lectures are long"

He is really funny, except his lectures can kind of get long. We wrote 3 papers, not too difficult. Make sure you participate!! online quizzes with reading super easy even if you dont read. if you participate and show up to class the papers should be easy and you will easily pass the class.

"Tough Grader" "Lectures are long"

Dr. Putz is a great guy personally, however, I would never take his class again. His teaching method is awful and his lectures are long and boring. He loves to preach to the class about how smart he is and leaves the class slightly confused because he uses such an expansive vocabulary. Overall, DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS.

ENG110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: A

Dr. Putz did an amazing job of teaching a class that I never thought I could be interested in. He helped me realize that being a great writer doesn't just come with ease and that it's more about how much thought and effort you put into your work that can make the difference between a good writer and a great writer. I highly recommend him.

Adam is very clear with what he expects his students to accomplish throughout the class. He grades a little bit strictly but it makes you a better writer. He keeps lectures interesting with his humor and colorful vocabulary.. some people complain about Adam's language but it kept me listening and made him more approachable and less intimidating.

Adam is a great teacher. I love his lectures because he tells it like it is and is very philosophical about stuff in general. People who give him bad ratings are probably not smart enough to understand what he's talking about.

Dr.Putz is a fantastic professor and his class is definitely one to take. Those who view him as arrogant or condescending are just mistaking how brilliant and passionate he is about what he teaches. If you can break away from the trance his beard holds over you, his lectures keep your interest and greatly enhance your interpretation of the texts.

Despite what people say on here Putz is a great teacher, if you're interested in the subject it isn't bad at all. If you have a problem with swearing or lecturing then he's not your type, but he's not too harsh of a grader and actually made the subject interesting to me when I wasn't very interested going into it!

On the plus side, he's very smart. He's a generally nice person too. However, he's also quite cocky and condescending. He teaches very theoretical stuff as opposed to teaching useful, practical information. Personally, I don't care for how much he swears. I'm not a fan of his and I would not recommend taking him.

He is very helpful with all the students, willing to go above and beyond to make sure everyone does their best. He is extremely intelligent (VERY EASY on the eyes as well) and I seriously recommend him. He presents ideas in an accessible way so that everybody can follow in discussions. He is an 11/10, if you have a chance, take him!

To describe him to a T, look up the definition of superfluous. Adam is condescending and inappropriate; avoid at all costs to prevent monotonous lectures about his superiority complex.

I definitely think that this professor helped to improve my writing. The papers were designed so that you can choose a topic you are interested in and if you follow the directions you will do well. He makes you think a lot with the readings but this is helpful and not ridiculously hard.

Would Not recommend him. He makes the class more like a philosophy class than a normal writing class. I thought it would help me become a better write but it has not at all. The final essay makes absolutely no sense at all and is about theorists.

Putz was extremely confusing. He tried to help students but did not always clarify the assignment. The final essay was complicated and I felt that most of the class was confused when we did it. He also is very arrogant and thought highly of himself. Overall, I did not enjoy this class and would not recommend him as a professor.

Adam brought a very laid back and easy going attitude to the classroom. He is very smart and didn't seem to understand that some of the work with the theorists we read was way over the class's head. Research project is cumulative through semester and he grades fairly. Would recommend him for 110.
