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: Not Mandatory 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!

Eng 100F Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

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!

English 100F Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

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
