"Assignments galore"

One essay a week, but it didn't matter how bad the grammar was, as long as it was on topic and on time, I got full points. But she takes the longest time to grade my assignments! (weeks!)

Great teacher! Requires effort in the class. Attendance is mandatory because it is part of your grade. Very helpful, and answers emails very fast. Emphasizes using her office hours also. Very interesting class. I'd take her again.

ENG 102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: A-

This class starts easy, then gets harder. About half my class dropped out. The main jist of it is that there are 3 'portfolios' due throughout the semester. She has the due date for everything lined up at the beginning of the semester. I learned a lot, but it's really just a lot of her talking in class. Going to class is 20% of your grade, so go.

ENG 102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

She was great! Very helpful and clear about what she expects of you. But if you don't understand something, she is very willing to explain. 3 portfolios, but each have it's own unique assignment to do to help improve your writing skills. Everything you learn in this class will help you in other classes that require essay papers also.

ENG 102 and 298 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

I took two of her English courses in the same semester, and I'm SO glad I did. She is SUCH an amazing teacher. She's so intelligent, so patient, and really wants you to understand what you are reading. She'll go above & beyond for you as long as you show the effort. Her classes quickly became my favorite. Not always easy, but worth it in the end!

ENG102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Excellent teacher. Very clear and detailed. Loves literature and allows students to write about what things they enjoy. No tests, just 3 portfolios. There is definitely a lot of writing but it is an English class. The longest essay is 2400 words. Sometimes she treats you like child and counts down though.

Simply one of the finest professors I've ever had the good fortune to learn from. Very helpful, kind, and considerate of the students' understanding of literature. One of the best professors you can have at CSN.

She is a great professor although she has us do a lot of unessessary stuff. I've learned a lot though, she has really helped me as a writer. Sometimes I feel like she treats us like we're children and has to time everything.

I learned so much from this professor. I took her summer class as one of my first college classes and it has better prepared me for all my classes! I looked for her for 102 but no so luck. Highly recommend this class if you truly want to improve your writing.

I took her online class. She is very fair in grading everything. She offers explanations and directions that couldn't be more clear. The best advice I can give is to do the essay you need AS SOON AS YOU GET THE ASSIGNMENT. Procrastination=certain demise. Be open to criticism, take her advice, and grow as a writer :)

Professor Mcbride has a demanding ciriculum but if you keep up she is fair in her grading system. She repsonds to questions in a timley manner and is a very helpful person. This course is tough but fair.

This class is not difficult; it is challenging. You will have to challenge yourself in this class. There are only three portfolios due, but they will definitely keep you busy. She has been a great teacher this semester. Just don't get behind!

Professor McBride was overall an easy professor. She's very nice and the work is relatively easy. Just show up and listen to what shes saying and you'll get an A. I hated how she would assign 2 1/2-3 page papers several weeks in a row and want them done in 2 days. That got tiring but overall it was a great class.
