ENG1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: B

Very good teacher! If you're interested in being a writer, take this class. He makes you think and gives really good advice as far as writing goes. He's a little bit kooky and weird, but overall a good guy. His class made me want to go back to school, if only to take more of his classes.

Take Krusoe if you are truly passionate about writing and want to become a better writer. Took him for English !, which was actually kind of a lot of work and I also took him for creative writing, which I strongly recommend. Great man and teacher with a dark sense of humor!

Genius. Teaches with style and ease and a great understanding of Literature and the mysteries of life, without appearing entitled/annoying like many Eng proffesors do. Great sense of humor. Be HIGHLY descriptive, take risks in your writing, and go to him for advice and you will see your writing bloom as well as your grade.

ENGL1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Really funny guy. Makes you think outside the box when it comes to classroom discussions. You'll have to write essays about sadness, insanity, and other random topics. Make sure you're really descriptive when you write.

ENGL1897 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

AMAZING! Write your essays with a lot of description and take risks. Don't be afraid to get strange or personal in them or be somewhat poetic. If you are a good writer and enjoy writing, I am sure you will enjoy and get an A. Took so much from this class. Krusoe is also the perfect mixture of hilarious, laid back, and 100% knowing his stuff.

ENG1885 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Krusoe is very passionate about English and insightful with the readings. Many questions and discussions will be held. You are to do about twenty essays and a research paper. The hardest part of the class will be the research paper and his grading, which is reasonable but still a little tough. Great class.

ENG1804 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Excellent teacher, esp. for writers. You'll write notes on essays, a weekly essay in class and one report. Discussions on book essays were interesting and all the writing invaluable. At my age (50's) I was ready for a waste of time. Quite frankly, I feel that I have improved as a writer thanks to this class and Prof's comments and attention.

Very interesting discussions during class. Minimal homework. He is a very difficult grader and seems really unpredictable. I went to his office hours regularly to get help. Always ask him what you did wrong on your essays, otherwise you'll be extremely lost. Participate in class and show him you care. He drops a few essays so don't stress too much.

EngEng1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Pretty good teacher, class consists of a lot of notes from the book as homework due once a week, essays, and a research paper. If you do the notes consistently, write good essays and find a good partner for the research paper, you'll have a guaranteed A or B and he wont make u do the final if ur grade is high enough to not be affected.
