EN211 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I absolutely love this professor! He is one of the most clear and helpful ones out there!! I personally hate literature and he made it so much easier and interesting to me. You have to read, you have to study and you have to come to class, but what do you except from a college class? I highly recommend him to anyone. He is challenging but worth it!

EN231 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Seems like the class is going to brutal at first, but after the first couple of weeks he lightens up. A lot of reading involved and he gives daily quizzes almost every class meeting. Overall, not a bad professor but helps if you like literature. I'm taking him again next semester.

ENG 556 Adv Wri Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I Have read the comments preceding and am amused by the "need to read the material" ones. You are in COLLEGE, not in high school or your mammies lap. He is an excellent teacher, passionate about writing and literature and determined to get the best out of you. If you don't belong in COLLEGE, don't go there.

EN-232 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I've never had lower than a high B on any English or Lit assignment or test before this class and the day before final I had a 69avg. Probably due to not reading the assignment until 5mins before class though. But for some reason I love this guy. He's pretty legit and he makes the class fun. I just hate his tests and quizzes!

Brown is a wonderful teacher! You have to work, and his classes are discussion based, but he cares about you and he has improved my writing. He is an excellent teacher!

I took him for EN 112. He is very understanding and he helped us out a lot. I am going to take him for my EN lit class if I can.

You will be called on every class. You wil take a quiz every class meeting. You do have to read the material. You get called out if you get your phone out AND emailed after (he counts you completely absent for just getting it out!!!!)

LIT231 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

It's a Lit class, expect to have to read. That's what lit is, dudes. But if you do that, his quiz answers are painfully obvious. He only gives those to make everyone read and in the end they turn out helping you. He's a great teacher and keeps the class interesting and understandable.

Lit232 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He is a very chill teacher. His quizes are hard, but if you thoroughly read your material you will do well. His tests are not hard if you study. But he does tell you to know everything. I sucked up several of my quizzes but left the class with an A because I did well on the tests. He gives you 2 tests and quizzes. That's it. Don't mess up on tests.

LIT112 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He makes lit so hard. He is also no help. And I mean NO help. Maybe 3 people made A's. You can only miss 3 days. Then he deducts a letter grade for every day missed. Makes you read aloud. And has daily quizzes so you must read.

ENG232 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Unless you are a lit or english major I would avoid Brown. This is a 200 level course with 400 to grad level expectations. While I agree the lectures are interesting, they are usless when it comes to the test. And a %50 final in a 200 level course? REALLY??!!

Dr. Brown is a very inteligent individual. His Lectures are very argumentive. You must read to pass his class, His quizzes are easy, he explains intresting points, there are times where some lectures seem very confusing simply because the guy has a very good vocab. I would high recommend this instructor if you are up to learning real lit.

He says no comprehensive final in beginning of class then a week before finals he requires you know everything ever said or written all semester. Avoid him if possible.

Amazing professor! He does debates that really make you think and the movies you watch are super interesting. Attendance is mandatory only because you dont want to miss anything interesting that happens in class.

EN112 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He's a really cool guy. Every paper is argumentative and the topics weren't too tough or anything. He's really laid back and funny. Treats you like an adult which some college professor's don't do. I hated writing before coming to this class but it was a little easier afterwards.

He's very strict about the reading assignments and attendance. It wasn't too bad though. He likes to hear what you think and then have you defend your position. he'd be a good debate coach. if you do the work and show up, its an easy A

He teaches absolutely no literature. I never made anything below an A on a paper until his class. Every single paper is argumentative. It is not fun unless you like to argue every single day. You do not need your UNA reader at all.
