Great class with a knowledgable and accommodating teacher. If you are unwilling to read three short stories a week, you may want to consider going to community college. Polly will help you to catch up if you just shoot her an email. Stories are mostly interesting and organized to be relevant. Definitely one of the better professors/courses at EMU.

CRTW 201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Class is very hard and she is unforgiving about it. You have two 7 - 10 page readings to do every week plus reading response and write a short story based on the concept taught in class. It might seem simple but miss two classes and you can lag so far behind. She doesn't take late work either so there's that. Avoid her like the plague.

CRTW201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She is a really nice teacher, very understanding, but the workload everyweek is overwhelming. You have at least five short stories to read plus three writing assignments. It gets to be a bit much. Attendance is crucial to pass. If you love writing, I would recommend her. But don't underestimate this class!

VERY, VERY nice teacher. Probably one of the best English dept teachers I've had at Eastern. The course is very hard but she tries really hard to be very accommodating about deadlines. If you miss a class, just let her know. She does everything she can to get you back on track. Would definitely recommend to anyone taking a writing class.

CRTW201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Polly is a really nice teacher, very understanding..but the class is NOT an easy A. There is a lot of reading to do each week as well as two writing assignments, which can be a bit much sometimes. Try not to miss class because you will feel lost the next week.

She's an OK teacher. Coursework was a little overwhelming though. YOU HAVE TO ATTEND EVERY CLASS. If you so much as miss two or even three, you're screwed for the rest of the semester. It is very easy to lag behind the work. Be prepared to read at least 3 short stories every week. Including writing two pages of reading response.
