Her work is definitely very challenging and you need to stay on top of things. Katz is intimidating in a caring way and does play favorites, but you genuinely learn from her class. Not an easy A at all, you really have to work your butt off for even a B.

Professor Katz is a character. Very strict, but is very funny and has a caring/ genuine nature about her if you get to know her. Textbooks are needed and required. If you come to class, participate, hand in your work on time and pay attention you will do fine. Do not let her facade or what others say scare you!

She's the real deal. No B.S. and she is very strict. Do you work and make sure you hand in everything on time. :) overall she's the mama.

Professor Katz is quite a character, I'll admit. She's harsh but in a rather funny and quirky way. Her work is no joke though, know your stuff. Though I do have a feeling she tends to play favorites.

To be honest, she scared the crap out of me for the first two months of the semester but once you get used to her teaching style, you realize that she is absolutely the BEST professor for Writing. I have learned so much from her and I always enjoy going to her class. She builds personal relationships will all of her students and really cares

Oh Katz.....the most unconventional professor EVER. But it was sooo much fun. I love her. Automatic improvement in your writing, if you show up and write the papers. Stay on top of everything so you're not pulling your hair out when portfolios are due. Katz is great.

DO NOT TAKE 255 AND THINK IT IS EASY. IT MAY SEEM LIKE A "CAKEWALK" FOR THE FIRST 3 MONTHS, BUT WAIT TILL U REACH THE LAST MONTH OF SCHOOL. THE WORK IS MASSIVE. BESIDES THAT, KATZ KNOWS HER STUFF AND EVEN IF YOU THOUGHT YOU WERE A GOOD WRITER, YOU WOULD REALIZE THAT YOU NEED IMPROVEMENT.....YOU WILL LEARN THE TERM "SMUCKALOVIC"

Wonderful person. She is like a walking and talkin english enclycopedia. By the time i was finished with her class i knew sooooo many things about grammer. She can be very insulting however. But she calls herself "mama" so i guess she feels tthats its okay.

KATZ IS AWESOME! Soo freakin AWESOME! She's one of the funniest professors at JJay but don't make the mistake of thinking 255 & 316 are easy they're not. But she will make you a better writer. Guaranteed! She has an unusual teaching method so don't take her quips to heart or think you're a crappy writer b/c of them, its her way of making you better

Katz is a very good professor. She is good at what she does and she expects a lot from her students. She is always willing to help and despite her toughness, she is a softie with her students.

If you are in her class you are a good student. You obveously know how to conduct yourself in college. Her class is great because there are never any knuckleheads in her class. You have to be recommended to get in. Her class will not have the "usuall" type of students from our school, the school that I call "John Jay College of Criminals"!
