ENG280 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Jerry is awesome! He ends class once he's done with what he's teaching ( no busy work). I got an A on all 3 papers! Make sure to pay some attention in class and look over the study guides before taking the quizzes. Other than that understand that he only talks about JFK for the last half of the class. DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS IF YOU WANT A TYPICAL ENGLISH CLASS/ IF YOU DON'T CARE ABOUT JFK.

I loved this class. The stuff about JFK is interesting and the quizzes he gives are easy. Very helpful about the three papers you have to do. Gave a lot of days off and always lets you out early. I definitely recommend him!

ENG 280 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Literally the greatest teacher ever. his quizzes are the same as his study guides, I get an A on every quiz. Quizzes take 5 mins and then he lets you leave class. You always get out early, I've never stayed the whole 50 minutes. His papers are creative and easy. JFK is a big portion because its the research paper. Takes Attendance. He's the best!!!

ENG280 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Half of the class is full of quizzes on the Kennedy Assassination and has nothing at all to do with English. You get out of class early and he is really helpful, but that's about the only kudos I can give him.

always lets class out early, short quizzes that are very easy if you study, 2 short papers, and a research paper on JFK. go to him for help to look at your paper before it is due. class was so laid back/chill I recommend him! sort of a tough grader, but his expectations are made clear. just put in the work and you will pass :)

You ALWAYS get out early. It was a fun atmosphere in the classroom and there are two short papers and then the JFK research paper. A few quizzes which were very easy if you looked over your notes. Hes very knowledgeable about JFK and has a passion for it. Dont slack off on the JFK paper and you will do fine.

Was a fun class. You always get early every class. There are two short papers at the beginning of the semester then the second half is strictly about JFK. It is very interesting subject to learn/write about. Dont slack off on the JFK paper and you will be fine in the class. There are a few quizes but they are very very easy.

Mr. Hansen is an awesome dude! He's very knowledgeable, and actually discusses with you instead of reading off power points. The atmosphere is really relaxed, and he allows 6 absences. He's a pretty hard grader, though, so don't slack on the big papers. All in all take him!
