Took this course over the 5 week Winter Intersession. Easiest 3 credits ever! Journal every day and and write three personal essays. Professor is considerate and helpful with the critique of the rubric. Do yourself a favor and take this course with her!

Very sarcastic and loves to treat her students like junior high students. She will literally call you out in front of the class for something as stupid as checking your phone. She doesn't know what she's talking about and just re-reads everything directly off powerpoints and failed to ever answer any of my emails I had for questions.

The lectures are entertaining but she just re-reads the works she assigns you to read. She then explains them in her terms. She has strong opinions, but if you can hold your own, she will respect you. Assignment load is heavy at first but then she forgets to assign anything after mid term so do good the first half of the class.

Worst teacher I've ever had. Gave poor grades on papers, and ignored my emails asking for constructive feedback. Improving your writing was impossible with this teacher because she was apathetic about every assignment. I've never met a teacher with as poor communication skills as this one.

Mary is a great teacher. She's a stickler, but definitely has a good side. She canceled class a few times, was occasionally lenient on assignments, reduced the final to less work. She's a sweetheart, just do you work and don't be an idiot.

The entire class is lecture,but the midterm and final are take home. The teacher herself is insecure and she lets it interfere with her teaching. She is unorganized and treats students poorly unless they suck up, a lot. I would never recommend her class to anyone.

Dr. Aldrige is a nice lady. She is really funny and interesting to talk too. Most of our class was spent talking about life more than litterature. But when she figued out that none of us were reading the assigned material, she started to crackdown a lot more. I would definately recommend this class if you like poetry

She did not communicate her directions well, nor did she grade fairly. Overall I do NOT recommend her.

She was incredibly interesting and funny, you can see that she takes enormous pride and joy in what she gives her students to learn as well as being a fount of information.

I loved this class. My husband and I took it together Monday nights and it was a lot of fun. Dr. Aldridge is funny and we had a lot of fun discussions. She's a fair grader, is clear on her assignments, and the work is fairly easy. I recommend her!

It has been a few years, but Dr. Aldridge is one of the best teachers I've had. She's smart and funny, making even the most basic lessons interesting. I went on to take her for two other classes. A very fair grader who is always open and willing to help. One of the best.

Very interesting teacher. I learned a great deal and will definitely take her again if I can. Show up for class and do not be late because she hates that. Turn your work in on time and listen and you will do fine.

Dr. Aldridge was a great professor as long as you attend class do your work and turn it in on time you will have a great grade outcome! I am actually taking her ENG 102 online class. In the HUM 251 class it teaches you how movies are made in the different angles and lighting of the camera shot very intresting class. Not boring at all!

A little tough. Honors class. You won't have homework for awhile but when you do it's piled on. Lots of writing. I didn't speak up much but got an A. Just be a good student, come on time, take notes, turn in everything on time, and put extra effort into the 2 written exams. Exam was openbook and takehome. On the exams, make definitions at least 3 sentences, short answers a paragraph and the essay a page. 1 issue. The presentation with a partner really should've been an individual assignment.

She is fun, opinionated woman. I rarely walked out of her class without something to say. Easy A if you do all the assignments and speak up in class.

Feedback is one thing but she clearly expected everyone to write in her style. If you didn't you were wrong. Criticism almost personal at times. Played favorites big time. But she's a community college lower level english prof so what do you expect.
