ENG100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I feel well prepared to go on to the next level of this class, so in that regard I would say that Dr. Ison is doing his job. However, his method of conveying his thoughts is quite disrespectful and belittling. I heard him make many comments that were cruel and uncalled for. He doesn't seem to realize that he's a lawsuit waiting to happen.

ENG 208 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This class was fun and easy as long as you attended and completed the work expected. Dr. Ison's syllabus is very thorough and he is easy to work with as long as you communicate. Lots of quizzes, however if you do the reading, pay attention to the films viewed, and participate - an "A" is not hard.

ENG100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He is well worth taking! He might seem intimidating at first but this class is super easy! And you actually learn, too. His essays are easy to pass, mostly A's for me. His readings are very interesting and there are small quizzes on the readings which are only a few questions. He is a great professor and is very helpful when you need him. Take him!

Dr. Ison was great. Very interesting class. Enjoyed all the class discussions and topics. He really made the class enjoyable and I would recommend him to all. Don't let the word count for the essays scare you. I promise it was not difficult. Just show up on time and do your homework which is reading a essay or two at home and you will pass!

Dr. John Ison is a phenomenal professor. Not only is he fair, but he care's for his students. On the other hand, if you get late to class, he will lock you out. Meanwhile, everyone else will be taking their daily quiz. Quizzes are SUPER easy. Do your work, try your best, and you'll do great!. FYI: offers letters of recommendation. Good luck!

Eng102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Overall a great person to have as an instructor. He was always prepared with his presentations and his lecture. He expects all reading and homework to be completed on due dates. Not flexible with that. His essays were not hard at all and his grading was also flexible. Though you do need to make sure you have basic knowledge of grammar and spelling

ENG100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

His 100 class was SO redundant, but SO easy. He assigns small articles to read and has daily quizzes on them, they're only worth 2 pts but if you do all of them AND the classwork you'll notice in your final grade. Meet his easy deadlines and go to his office hours for help! He'll definitely give you a better grade if you show interest.

Great teacher, Eng 100 class was composed of 4 essays, 2 exams based on MLA format, 2 group presentations, and daily reading quizzes. If you stick with the work you will have no trouble passing this class at all. :)

Awesome teacher. Never considered myself a good writer but her really helps you out through multiple revision steps. Great guy willing to help any student. Show up to class, participate, do every step of his assignments, and should not have a problem getting an A. Definitely one of my favorite teachers

ENGL103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

For an English 103 class, he doesn't assign too much writing to do compared to the other classes I've heard about. The readings are a must-do. He gives great feedback, is organized, and is extremely helpful if you go talk to him for help. I'd recommend him.

I really enjoyed Dr. Ison's class. He is very organized, returns work quickly, and gives good feedback. He genuinely wants to help students-just show that you are making an effort. Lots of group work and make sure you do the readings (they are not too long).

Eng100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Horrible. Gave me a horrible grade on every essay I created. I made it perfectly clear that I was willing to try my hardest. I turned a paper in thinking it was the best thing I have ever written and it recieved an F. Tons of class work and none of it relates to anything we typed. I used to consider myself a creative writer, not now. Thanks Ison

ENGL103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Must read 10 minute (on average)assignments daily because readings Quizzes, discussion, and classwork will generally be about the previous reading. Essays free of grammar and spelling errors, with a clear position will certainly get at least a B. Essays are very short (4 pages) and easy to write for this class. Does direct class his way a bit.

Professor Ison was a good teacher. The class isn't easy by any means but if you show up, put in some effort and do the reading you will do well and learn a lot. There is a quiz before each class on the previous night's reading assignment. He's tough but really fair and helpful if you take the time to ask for help after class or during office hours.

Engl103H Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Not dropping this class was one of the worst decisions I've ever made. I have never had a teacher that frustrated me more. He is extremely opinionated, condescending, and makes you feel stupid for asking questions (which he NEVER answers but rather talks in circles mumbling until he thinks he's avoided it) But the worst of all he picks favorites.

Great teacher, this is my 2nd semester taking a different class that he teaches. He does not play favorites or seems like a know-it-all. To those that have questions and he lets them ask, Dr. Ison gives them recognition for asking a question. Overall he's a great professor and sucks he doesnt carry a ring, gives us women doubts of his status.
