Class is structured closer to a 400 level vs a 100. high amounts of reading. Between 60-120 pages per class.

This class boring, however it is super easy. I managed to get a B grade without reading a single book. I spent 98% of the class doodling and 2% writing down words that Gordo mispronounces. Is it too much to ask to have an English prof who can correctly pronounce "narrator"?

eng104 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He started out ok, but his structure for class was pretty poor. His seemingly clear expectations turned out to be very vague in terms of his expectations. The class itself isn't too hard, although the material gets to be pretty repetitive. He knows the material, but he doesn't teach English. He rambles off topic and is an extremely difficult grader

eng104 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

This teacher is really slow and boring. The books are relatively easy, but it's a lot of reading for a 100 level class. If you get on his good side you'll do really well. Go to class read the books, and you'll do fine. If you really like to read about alter egos or dual personalities you will really enjoy the class

ENG104 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Very dry, with a quiet voice. Books are all about doubling, so the theme gets extremely boring, and out of all the 7 books, only 2 of them have any appeal. Take the course only if you need the credit, otherwise it's not of much use. Very writing and reading intensive!

Gordo is an okay teacher. He's easy, but the books you read are all on the same topic of doubling, so you already know what will happen to a certain extent. Pretty easy class, but hella boring

Eng104 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Not a very interesting teacher. We break up into groups to discuss or he talks about themes in novels...which all novels have basically the same themes because they all are books surrounding the idea of doubling...I wouldn't suggest taking this class. I like most of the books, but it isn't worth it because the class does not excite or motivate me.

Makes himself availible during office hours, however he isnt much of a help when you go in. His class was kind of boring and most of the novels we read didnt really make sense. Showing up to class seemed pointless and he assigns a lot of reading. He means well, but he is somewhat awkward
