Dr. Layne is an exceptional professor. If you're expecting an easy class, don't sign up. If you're looking to gain critical writing skills and engage in deep, thought-provoking discussion, she's the professor for you. Course can be writing intensive, but all assignments are meaningful. I hear her Prison Nation class is phenomenal.

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

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

ENG110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

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

GSTSA Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

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.

ENG110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

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.
