Eng50 and Eng1A Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: A

I took Eng50 and Eng1A with Mr. Kraus. He may seem grumpy and cold, but once you get to know him you will see that he is the most dedicated professor you will ever meet. Show him you are there to learn by asking questions. Show improvements on your essays by not making the same grammar mistakes. Visit him at the writing center for additional help.

ENG 50 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Great teacher but definitely long winded sometimes. He will criticize you and your writing but it's nothing to take personally. If you want an easy A this isn't the teacher but as long as you put in the time to do the work (which isn't that much) then you'll be fine.

Eng50 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Kraus is a great English teacher, very clear and honest and appreciates it when you actually try but doesn't expect perfection. And that's what makes him a great teacher!

Mr.Kraus is a great teacher! He is very helpful and the assignments are clear. If you take his class you will acquire skills that will help you become a better writer. He is also the type of teacher that does not mind any questions and will answer every question until his answer is clear.

Took a couple of classes with him as long as you do your work you will get a good grade and actually try. Most kids in RCC want a hand out and the professor to hold their hand as if they were still in high school.

This Teacher is completely boring! He doesnt use powerpoints. He's difficult to understand doesn't give back positive feedback and his writing is not clear. He assigns a lot of essays and gives you a week to complete each one. He is SUPER HARD!!!!! NEVER take him hes old and needs to retire!

ENG1A Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Most boring class i've ever taken. He has no powerpoint and sits through every class at his desk and just lectures. He does make useful corrections on papers, but he is incredibly degrading in them as well. He lectures through most of his class on how stupid everyone is. Horrible teacher, and an unfair grader. DO NOT TAKE.

ENG50 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This teacher is very hard. He grades harshly and only tells you what you did wrong instead of telling you what you can do to fix it. Must follow directions. The English lab isn't helpful either because they don't proofread papers. However, if you ask Mr. Kraus a lot of questions, he's helpful and you may end up getting a passing grade with a C.
