eng1120 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Extremely specific grading without previously explaining her expectations. Mind-numbingly boring classes that involve her droning voice talking the entire time without any class participation. Pathetic attempts at humour and entertainment that lead to very unpleasant lectures.

Genuine, helpful and clearly passionate about what she teaches. I had a blast and her lectures, if you put the work in it, are wonderful. Awesome.

Fabulous professor. She so obviously loves the works she discusses and has such a beautiful command of language. I love listening to her talk. She is very upfront with her expectations which is very helpful. I enjoyed her class very much and the work was a pleasure.

Unquestionably, Fiamengo is impassioned by literature and considerably invested in teaching. Her course was focused and the selection of literary texts, though unified by a common theme, were diverse enough to interest essentially anyone. Inspired and extremely kind, she's a professor you'll be fortunate to have. Her expectations are transparent!

The most darling professor at Ottawa U. She is so sweet, and her sense of humor is adorable. I loved almost all the books we studied, and most of her lectures were very informative. Not the easiest marker, but even still I would definitely recommend her.

Really sweet prof, she seems to care about her students and is always willing to help. Hard marker though, even when your convinced you aced it, dont expect this to be an easy class, it is far from that. An ok choice of books for her class too.

Very sweet lady. People don't give her enough credit, she's helpful and makes herself available all the time and responds to emails. A lot of the readings are interesting and she knows her stuff very well! It is obvious she is making a genuine effort to be a good teacher, so if you make an effort to be a good student in return she'll reward you.

ENG2400 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Very kind, but very boring. I fell asleep often. She really doesn't like discussion, if you bring something up, it's not really encouraged, and she just sort of agrees to avoid conflict.. I felt that the subject matter was too focused on Canadiana poetry, and not on Canadian literature as a whole, so unless you enjoy nature poetry, I'd stay way.

Loved her sense of humor, she's very sweet and very eloquent. This class was very lecture heavy, and not very much discussion. Her voice is kind of lulling though, and students often nod off. She marks very fairly though. I would recommend her.

ENGL4382 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

A wonderful professor who has a real grip on appropriate course structure, how to manage discussion, and insightful knowledge of her subject matter. Very open to hearing differing opinions, and to hearing from everyone in the class. I find it ironic that her minimal negative comments come from students who have spelling errors in their postings...
