ENG271 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Very basic class structure: read play, answer questions, watch video, answer questions, write essay, repeat. Able to revise essays to get higher grade and easy to get ahead. However, there is no class participation, you listen to him explain the text. Knows what he's talking about and loves to make sure you can understand the material.

I thought this class was an Easy A if you at least put some effort into your papers. The papers are super easy too. He gives you so many ideas for your papers and he even lets you turn them in late. I think he WANTS you to turn them in. He grades them fast and he's nice. TAKE HIM! Great professor and intelligent :D

Love this professor. He offers various literary perspectives, and his lectures are engaging. Papers are open-ended, and easy to write after the many ideas he presents on the films and plays.

ENG271 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

strict on attendance, but otherwise the drama lit class is fun. Three class days of discussion and the next three you watch the film. For a writing intensive, there is considerably little writing. :) only 5 papers for the whole semester. just an in-class writing once a week which involves answering questions.

ENG445 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Cruise class, he is very knowledgeable and talks during the whole lesson. I like that we read the book, then watch the film, and do compare/contrast essays. Very simple, only thing is he is very strict about attendance. He WILL drop your grade after 4 absences (excused OR unexcused), and so on. So show up to class!

ENG362 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He is a very thorough professor. At the beginning of the semester he goes over the syllabus, and repeats the procedure for doing assignments over and over so students don't forget. he has no mercy when it comes to grading or absences. He is a good professor although strict, stern with his moments of humor...few moments.

shakespeare! WI. Completely laid out in the first week of class. can do works ahead of time if you want. few plays, response, movie, after two of these cycles then a paper. very structured. he is very knowledgable. he seems like a prick at first but that's a facade.

ENG 100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

easy class, all we did was read plays or stories then watch videos, compare them and then write an essay on them...if you know how to write a basic outline and essay, then you will do fine...
