2201 Taken for Credit: Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: B+
"Tough Grader" "Get ready to read" "Skip class? You won't pass."

I don't recommend this teacher if you are looking for an easy A. She grades really tough and isn't a very helpful or understanding teacher. She's one of those teachers that think her class is the only one that matters. Attendance is extremely mandatory and she gives quizzes on the reading every class. No curve but a few extra credit opportunities.

ENGL- 2201 Taken for Credit: Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A
"Skip class? You won't pass." "Tough Grader" "Pop quiz master"

Do not take this teacher. Most of the things you will read are about Lesbians or revolving about homosexual materials... which is fine, however thats literally the only thing you will learn about. She grades really tough and gives pop quizzes every class period so you must read. If you miss more than 3 class periods she drops your grade by a letter

Dr. Wilson is very nice and creates a pleasant class experience. However, she is a very tough grader. Never did I receive full credit for my journals and the term paper isn't any easier. She does offer a lot of extra credit, which in the end raised my grade two letter grades. This class requires a lot of work for a Gen Ed, but it is doable.

"Pop quiz master" "Tough Grader" "Get ready to read"

She gives a pop quiz almost every class, and journals every Friday. There is only one fairly short paper, and two quizzes in the semester which make the pop quizes crucial to do well on. She assigns a lot of reading each night. Test are easy. Also, attendance is mandatory and essential to passing her class.

Literature Taken for Credit: Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A
"Get ready to read" "Big time extra credit" "Skip class? You won't pass."

I loved this class! She gives many extra credit opportunities so take advantage. Attendance is mandatory. She gives lots of quizzes so go to class. Her work is easy as long as you do her work. I got an A in the class. I would take her again if I needed another English. & buy the book! She uses it & gives open book quizzes sometimes.

ENGL 2201 Taken for Credit: Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A
"Assignments galore" "Tough Grader" "Papers? More like novels"

I like Dr. Wilson as a person, but as a professor, she's kind of rude and pretentious. She, like many English professors, has the opinion that her class is the only class that exists and the students should just spend all their time doing work for her class and her class only. Don't take her unless you're down with bending to her will on a whim.

Great teacher and very unique. She says naught words all the time that make the class so warm and welcoming. I highly recommend her and would take her if I had the opportunity again.

LIT 2201 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

My favorite professor I have had in college thus far! Although attendance is mandatory, it didn't matter because I loved going. She made the material we had to read so much more interesting! Highly recommend her!!!

LIT 2201 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: A

Attendance is mandatory, lots of homework (countless readings and journal entries) in an overall uninspiring class. Class isn't easy, but with hard work and persistence it's definitely possible to get an A. There a few extra credit opportunities you can use to your advantage. She's actually a nice person, just the course material is boring.

Take her! she is very passionate about her job and it's contagious. I never missed a day not only because attendance is important but because I loved being there! The whole class always had a blast and ended with an A. take her if you have the opportunity. It's a privilege.
