ENG 2001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Oh my, how I hated this class. Everything we did in here seemed so pointless. Most assignments were unrelated to one another, like the journals. They all leaned to one side or the other, and Heiks expected you to have a hardcore viewpoint for or against it.

I do not recommend Kriss. She starts off the class w/ an article & journal almost every night. All of the journals are very political, though the class has nothing to do w/ politics. If you argue w/ her views, she tells you you're wrong. With papers, If you work for 2 days, you may get the same grade as someone who worked for 30 min. DONT TAKE HER

Kriss is a great professor. She is really helpful, and she lets you redo papers several times before you turn them in. Beware if you are a hardcore conservative. She's not afraid to argue with you in front of the whole class. She does not grade assignments harshly. I would definitely take her again if I had the chance.

ENG 1000 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Kriss is AWESOME! Her grades consist of only a few papers and journals. NOT hard, just a little bit of reading and discussion. Attendance is mandatory and in class, you have to talk to get credit. Otherwise, she is laid-back, fun, and relaxed in class. p.s. DO NOT TEXT IN CLASS. but take her if you need a good english class under you belt!

Eng2001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This is more like a debate class than a writing class. Most classes are spent debating liberal v. conservative views. If she doesn't agree with you on the topic of your papers she will lower the grade because of "unreliable" sources even if you know the matter. If you are going into any field in Criminal Justice steer CLEAR!!!!

ENG2001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Aaagh. Kriss sure does assign a lot of work for a gen ed class. She collects journal entries (aka homework) randomly, and I feel like I'd be motivated to actually do them if I knew when she was going to take them up. She's also extremely opinionated. If you disagree with her you won't be able to get a word in!

On the first day of class, Kriss told us to pick a cause we would like to spend the semester writing about. You spend the whole semester writing about it so pick something you're passionate about. I loved her class and she was a huge help She's a teacher you see in the hallway and she smiles, says hello and calls you by name. Awesome teacher!

UGH, Kriss. If you're reading this, just let it be known that you are a very stressful teacher. I felt as though when I was in that class I was belittled and treated as though I had never written a paper before. She makes you write a million drafts that have nothing to do with your final portfolio and it is ANNOYING. I would NOT take her again.
