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

I changed my major the first week of school so i did not get to her class until the 2nd week. She told me even though i was not enrolled in her class, if i missed ONE class she would deduct my final grade 20 points. She was quite rude about it too. I would not suggest.

ENG 3213 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Spencer is one of the best teachers at UCO. She takes an active interest in every one of her students. Her classes are structured around their welfare: her assignments are interesting, her lectures insightful and chock full of fascinating additional information--she loves her job. Keep up with the readings and her class is wonderful.

ENGL 511 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Those uninterested in her classes are likely over at UCO taking Zombie classes or Hoch. (where everyone makes an A!) You have to READ in this Engl.class, & you also have to WRITE a lot. Surprise?!I took her 18th century lit., learned substantial info & loved the readings even while expecting not to!She has a photographic mind, & she loves teaching.

19CenBritPoets Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Spencer expects a lot of her students, but gives a lot in return. She's helpful--her lectures and the journals (though tedious) really helped me understand the material. She goes out of her way to make sure she is understood by her students. Don't slack off--you're in college!--and you will do just fine and come out smarter than you were.

ENG 3213 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Awesome! I absolutely loved her! As long as you do the journals and read what you're supposed to, you'll do fine. She tends to be a bit opinionated, but is flexible and willing to see your side in an argument (as a couple comments on my journals showed). Great teacher, definitely recommend!

ENG 3213 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Busy work. Everywhere. The journals are tedious and the questions don't shed any light on the material. Very little engagement on the professor's part, vague as can be, very inflexible, even if emergencies come up, and rude. Love the subject, but she is a terrible teacher. She might be the plague. 1ST English class I have ever regretted taking.

ENG2543 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

The block class is horrible! With endless nights of reading! However she is so great at describing everything that I almost never read out of the textbook and still made it out with an A. Just show up to class everyday and you will do fine. She also changed the final to a Thursday so you have more time.

ENG3193 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Spencer is very intelligent and she helps students understand the literature if they don't get it. Her tests are definitely hard due to the time crunch (only 50 min). Her classes are very valuable and interesting. Seems like her World Lit class is much easier than her English since 1800.

ENG3213 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Spencer is the hardest English professors I have had, and I consider myself to be a pretty good student. She will grade your journals and papers based off her personal opinion. Her test are extremely difficult and you are only allowed 50min which is not enough time. She treats class as a graduate level course, and goes over class time often

ENG2653 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She is very eccentric, and definitely an expert. She expects you to speak up in class, or she will call you out. A few homework assignments, a midterm and a final, and one research paper that is pointless. She seems like a hard grader but if you follow the guidelines without exceeding you will end up with a good grade.

ENGL3213 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Spencer is definitely an expert in her field. She knows a lot about her material and is willing to share her knowledge and insights. Be prepared to write a journal entry over EVERY reading assignment, which can turn into a tedious chore. Also, be prepared for essay exams in which you won't have enough time to answer everything.

EngLito18 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She's really upbeat, but goes on and on. Her tests area really hard. You are given short quotes and you have to list the work, the author, the time period, how the quote relates to the work and the time period. You are asked to write 2 essays in a 50min period. You write one research paper, not too bad but make sure your thoughts are original.

She expects you to do a lot of reading, but if you don't understand it she always explains what you read the next day. She is a really good teacher, take her!

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

Dr. Spencer is passionate about the subjects she teaches. I have had two of her classes at graduate level, and in both cases I got swept up and learned more about the period and the literature than I expected. She has high expectations and is finicky about spelling and grammar. Her online classes are demanding. Overall, a high quality experience.

She's brilliant, love the class, and I plan on taking her again. She loves to clarify anything you might need, loves discussion in her classes, and doesn't mind or belittle when your guess may be off the mark in a few assignments. The best English lit professor I've taken so far!

World Lit Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

A lot of required reading, but she makes the subject very interesting. She loves the subject and she loves to teach, which definetely makes her class enjoyable. I learned a lot and ended up enjoying a subject I didn't think I would. She cares about her students. I would definetely take her again.
