ENGL 3312 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

Overall,a very easy class. Classes are disorganized and he is prone to rambling, but he knows the material and the class is not stressful. It could be hard to stay awake, though. Read and you'll ace the quizzes. He is not consistent in his grading of the essays, but pay attention to what he says in class and incorporate that into your work.

Engl 3312 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He's not bad,quizzes every class but they are easy if you use spark notes. The essays are the hardest because he is never clear on what he wants or what he takes points off for. The final is worth 40 percent of your grade which is ridiculous.

Eng 2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

SO CONFUSING! I have no idea what is going on in that class. He only offers early classes and he is impossible to follow. It is a month away from finals and I am only now starting to find a way to follow his lectures. Take someone else if you can, but he isn't terrible.

ENGL3314 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

ENGL 3314: Development of the Novel is required for English Lit majors. It covers the rise of the novel in popularity between the 17th and 19th centuries. Prof. Krohn demonstrates familiarity with the course material, however he's very disorganized. Expect extensions on due dates when he forgets to hand out assignments. Reading quizzes given daily.

ENGL1341 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Krone is a decent Proffesor. He is an actor at the alley theatre in his spare time so he will often do voice impressions. He is available for paper advice if you finish early. Final Exam is all essay. Had an A going into the final still waiting on that grade. Just know that the final is worth 40% of your grade and he gives no tests whatsoever.

ENGL1342 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Essay for every book read which is 4. Research paper of 6 pages and a final which is pretty extensive. He tends to go over all the books very extensively but he also likes to go on random tangents. Not a bad class but not interesting either. Usually class is at 8am which makes it difficult to always pay attention. Quizzes almost every class.

ENGL1342 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

His quizzes are extremely easy. His class is boring but he can be entertaining at times. The essays ARE NOT THAT EASY. You can write the perfect paper but he will still give you a C if you don't write about what he wants you to. However, he never specifically or hints you what to write. Made an A- class.

Engl1342 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Very nice guy. He teaches very early in the morning. Gives a lot of quizzes but they are easy if you know the book. The entire class is him talking about the book. Gives a few short papers but they are easy. Every time someone says something in class he always says its good and never says anyone has a bad idea.

engl1342 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Easiest class ever. Never read any of the books, bs'd all the essays and still pulled an A. He doesn't really require class participation, most just studied or worked on other things during class. Quizzes are sparknote-able so no need to really read. Easy A.

ENGL1341 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Overall, a very easy class. He sometimes gets frustrated when nobody answers his questions or when people walk in late. Sparknotes will help you pass the quizzes however if your looking for a perfect score just stick with reading the book. Can be very boring especially so early in the morning, however can be really entertaining.
