Art of Words Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I have mixed feelings about her. She speaks very slowly and is kind of hard of hearing. Plus she never really seems to like the work you bring in. And the work she reads tends to be not that great. But the class itself was fun. Discussions are always open, and there was a lot of free writing, which was fun. I learned a lot about poetry, at least.

WRITLIT Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She really helped me improve my writing skills. You can easily get lost in her class but if you try to participate things get better. And if you talk to her, she is always available to help.

CreWr3333 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Don't know about her other classes, but creative writing was the dookie. She was really laid back. People complaining about her talking all the time need to jump in the convos. Shes a funny lady to bullpoo with.

LITT666 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

extremely well read, kind, and a non linear teacher. on the other hand, the most boring and difficult class to sit through. time ceases to to pass, while her tangent based discussions leave students in coma-like trances of agony. very inconsistant grading, like the rest of SVA. easy class though, besides her babbling. dresses like school girl too.

LitSECT Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This was probably single-handedly one of the worst classes I ever took as SVA. The woman spent an entire class discussing with another ADD student (even though there was like 25 in the class) about how ALIENS built the pyramids... WE WERE READING OEDIPUS!? She also required that we go to her poetry reading at a bar, when no one was +21 years old.

THIS WOMAN IS CRAZY!!! She took up a whole class period telling us how a mouse built her a teepee and how her cat killed her bathmat. I'm not kidding.
