LING 325 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

The books are full of jargon that is difficult to understand, but they're a must-have to pass. Her specifications for the final project were unclear and she was not receptive to any attempts me or my classmates made to help her understand that. Numerous times she yelled at students and ridiculed them in the middle of class. Not taking her again.

LING 363 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This class was BORING. I was really excited to take it but I hated myself for signing up halfway through. Her lectures are boring and discussion groups don't help. The textbooks are bland and uninteresting. She herself is kind of mean and sarcastic in a way that looks down on the student. I would not recommend.

idk if my other classes were just so horrible that she seemed alright but honestly she wasn't that bad. easy class. not a lot of work 2 projects, 2 tests, no final. Does make you print a lot of stuff though which adds up in $ if you have no printer. i'd recommend her. she gets a lil borin but eh class was EZ. key words guys: little work &no final!

LING0 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Unorganized, unclear, unprofessional, and yes...rude at times! Sometimes she snaps at students and calls out on students for no reason. Dr. Fantuzzi reads off her powerpoints which are not very helpful particularly for midterms. Be ready to teach yourself. Avoid at all costs!!!

let me sum it all up...she knows her study (linguistics) but she doesn't know how to teach it. She gets confused or at least looks like she does.doesn't clearly explain concepts.Gives a ton of hand outs and during class reads them to you. Grades in a curve but yoiu don't know how many each ? in a quiz is worth and when u ask her she says "i think"

EXTREMELY unorganized! If you study and do your work it's possible to do well. The key is to pester her with questions and e-mails so you're on top of things

I don't know why people don't like her - the projects are very helpful in giving you hands - on experience, and she is such a nice person. If you know how to listen you won't need to bother with the textbooks; the course packet and lectures have all the info you will need.

I learned a lot in this class, but sometimes it was kind of boring. The projects are very tedious and time consuming, but she's a fair grader and I was able to get an A in the class. She's a nice, softspoken teacher, but it could be improved if she made it a little more interesting.

If you want an easy A, don't take this class. But I learned a lot. I found the handouts very helpful and the professsor is nice. She cares about the student's learning. She gives lots of useful worksheets to practice for the tests and projects.

ummm dont take it. She makes it seem like hw doesnt count and she rarely takes roll, then in the end she docks you poins saying you were missing alot of assignments. SHe also doesnt know how to teach and the books are a waste of money.. you end up having to teach yourself.. good luck!

She is such a bad instructor!!!!!!!!!! She won't answer your questions in class. Instead of answering your question she will tell you to "study it at home" or "try looking it up in the dictionary." GEEEEEEZZZZZ I go to school to be instucted, not to have a teacher tell me to learn it on my own at home.

she was a little paranoid about students not liking her. She makes you stay full class time. She can be rude if you ask a question in class. 2 huge projects, but I did learn alot.

The class was ok, if you pay attention and study well you'll do fine. It's not a class that you can get a good grade in without studying. And sometimes she's really confusing abotu what she wants, but it wasn't a bad class and she's not a bad teacher.
