Good teacher who knows her stuff. However, there is a lot of work and she definitely is a tough grader. The second half of the semester really drops off work wise. Make sure to agree with her opinions or you won't do nearly as well

She is the best and very helpful professor. I learned a lot out of her class.

Very disorganized with scheduling and class work. Seemed to grade presentations arbitrarily.

Professor Layne can be unclear at times with assignments but isn't too hard of a grader. Attendance is mandatory, points off your final grade if you have missed more than 3 classes

I took her abroad to South Africa. The country is AMAZING but she makes you do all this work that is completely useless. She's very unorganized. Be prepared for some beautiful scenery, incredible experiences, and very poorly planned days.

extremely argumentative!!! doesnt teach, just expects you to understand. and if you dont? she'll get an attitude and make you feel like an idiot. go to class, do the work, and try not to let her piss you off. even a hint of objection and your grade will suffer horribly.

She is not a teacher for the student that likes to be lazy. The class is not super hard but it is by no means easy. You actually have to do the work. Imagine that!The majority of the people that are complaining are probably lazy. Don't be lazy, do the reading, ask for help when you need it, and you will be just fine!

All I can say is ugh. If Dr. Layne liked you, you were golden, but if you got on her bad side, it seemed as though your grade reflected her opinions of you...hmm. She's brilliant when she actually teaches, which was seriously rare.

5 Tips: 1)Get on her good side. If she likes you, she will be helpful and kind; if not, WATCH OUT. 2)Do the reading. Participation will get you points. 3)Don't start a fight; it's easy to do, but don't. It's not worth it. Just keep your mouth shut. 4)Don't mess up; don't be late with work. She plays hardball for the sake of it. 5)Good luck!

This teacher is the worst I have ever had at Elon. She demands respect of her students but provides none to them. She makes it difficult to understand what she wants and impossible to fix mistakes. She also blatantly steals her presentation, handout, and quiz materials from other schools and random websites. In a word - unprofessional.

She was a horrible teacher. She is ****...the only people in my class to pass were either black or from the Caribbean. You have to make sure she knows your grades or you will get a 0. I hated her and she does not care about the good of her students. Everybody I know that had her hated her!!

By far the worst teacher I have had at Elon. She is extremely judgemental and difficult to interact with overall. I highly suggest you select a different teacher for literature. Good Luck! :/

Worst teacher I have had at Elon. Unclear assignments, pop quiz's (like a middle school teacher) and she's just rude. I think she has a personality disorder. She doesn't posses normal human ways of communication. Elon should get rid of her.

She is passionate about African American Studies but not College Writing...she feels black people do not work hard enough and expect the world to hand them things... she is strong-minded but is also nattow-minded about her own people.

Reasonably nice, but the class is terribly boring, and the assignments are pretty worthless. I dislike writing, which I'm sure didn't help. The projects are not well explained, and mandatory attendance sucks. Definately take a different professor for college writing.
