I loved Approaches to Lit and I love Dr. Gottfried! She made discussions interesting and was okay with the class having fun with them too. Very easy to talk to and ask for help. Would definitely recommend approaches to lit even if english isn't your favorite; it's more like a philosophy class.

ENGL219 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Gottfried is very passionate about Creative Writing, but I learned nothing in her class. Without any sort of lecture or discussion, students were required to submit items for Iowa style workshop... and then, those same uneducated students (in an introductory writing course) spent the entire semester critiquing those submissions... bogus.

Professor Gottfried is great. I wasn't exactly excited to be taking this class but it ended up being one of the best experiences I've had. Just makes sure you read the texts and participate in class.

Amazing teacher. Her daughter livened the class up even more. Dr.G and Mr. Kohl are the reasons I'm at hood today.

Extremely knowledgeable, but also very busy. Go to her office knowing what you need to say because it helps her give you the exact advice you were looking for! Great with email communication, and in-class discussions. Overall she is an excellent, top-quality teacher who is both very entertaining and detailed in her responses.

Wonderful experience! If you are a motivated student who wants to be pushed to the extent of their abilities and challenged, take a class with her!

Best Eng teacher I've had at Hood! Vivacious teaching style & an open-door policy for motivated students. You must do the reading and participate in class discussions, but that's really not much to ask, is it? If I could take all of my Eng courses with her, I would. She's far superior to other English prof's at Hood.

Dr. Gottfried's classes and the grades in which you earn will be highly reflective of the amount of effort you put in. I will give her props for making an exam which you have to identify the book, author, and the significance. Yeah, this sucks - but it's ingenious in making students read. Reminds me alot of Miss Frizzle from Magic School Bus.

This class is a lot of work. (You must write a 15+ page story, in addition to several poems) You must also write and critique every one of your peers work. Dr. Gottfried is nice but kind of odd.. reminds me of a hippe!
