Eng218 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Libretti is funny, creative and smart, making early American literature come alive. He introduces you to the methodologies of literary criticism, its conventions and research. He expects you to synthesize his classroom lectures with your own take on the texts. Students w/o a sense of humor won't appreciate his style.

ENG 218 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Libretti rambles, doesn't cover half the material assigned and still expects you to know his angle. He is a hard grader and you can never understand his comments because they are chicken scratch. I know more about his personal life than I do about the subject matter he is supposed to be teaching.

ENGL486 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Libretti is just Libretti. He's excited by new ideas. He does approach things in a rather scattershot way, which actually kind of helped me a lot with trying to understand the possible approaches I can take in the class and overall program. He could stand to be clearer and a little more focused for the sake of other students, but I liked his work.

ENGL486 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Libretti tends to ramble. A lot. Talks about his kids, TV, and other non-class related subjects. So often, in fact, I wondered if I'd be tested on it. Assignments weren't explained well even with clarification. Dropped the class for fear of my GPA and don't plan on taking another class with him!

Dr. Libretti is a fantastic professor and really cares about his students. He has high standards and chooses to call on and engage those that are committed to the class and the reading.
