He is the most amazing teacher ever. He helps you write an essay by making you do an essay a week which does get tiring but through his class i learned more then any of my other english teachers combined

Walsh was a great teacher. His style of teaching was something new and unique and made writing essays enjoyable. The "FamJam" was a good way to get to know the people in his class and be comfortable with reading your work out loud.

Not really learning anything from this class so I can't say that he has inspired me to be a better person. And if he cared about his students, then he should help us understand how to write an essay that will get us through the next 4 years and our careers.

Walsh is the man. He cares about every student that walks through his door. I have only been in the class for 5 weeks, but he has already inspired me to be a better person.

Writing with your voice is only useful if you know how to think critically and actually analyze a text. I can do the work of this class on my own without him. What is the purpose of learning about texts and cultural analysis if all you deal with is your own voice rather than analyze the various voices that lit and your peers have to offer?

You might think you won't learn anything because he doesn't restrict students on what they can write about but you learn so much about how to write with your own voice. He is so helpful and positive about everything. You get to have so much fun and learn at the same time. The texts he used was very interesting too.

Alot of people are excited because he doesn't really demand anything of us. There is alot of writing about how we feel which is ok, but I do that kind of writing in a diary or journal. I am not learning much. Where is the challenge?

Great teacher if you don't care for English. If you want to learn to write more effectively do not take this class. He basically gives you an A if you hand in anything, you make up your own assignments pretty much. Weird style of teaching, completely depends on how you want to have your class structured.

I am sick of personal writing. I haven't learned any writing skills that will help me in my other classes. And, the he is a Man comments are fricking lame. I guess a teacher that requires nothing of you would be considered "the man." Creative writing is for creative writing classes so could we please focus on increasing my writing skills?

I expected college English to be a boring class with 15 pages or research paper due every week. Nope.Walsh feels this doesn't develop the writing. His method involves writing about whatever your passion is. My writing went up the roof. He's funny and motivating as well.

Great class. Walsh truly cares about his students, and is very understanding if you're behind on work. The class becomes a family. Watch out though, because he talks alot.

Walsh is the man. I had some stuff going on 2nd semester where I couldn't turn in about half of my papers and he was completely cool with it. He's understanding and an all around good guy. His stories are mad funny and interesting.

the best professor ive had. will basically only give positive feedback. classes consist of walsh's crazy stories,him rapping,and us reading aloud papers and discussing them. while attendence isnt really mandatory, i always wanted to be in class because its so laid back and unlike any other class you will ever take. really cares about his students.

Walsh is the best. He's all about good writing, and wants the best out of his students.He's definitely a talker, but his stories are amazing so they're worth listening to. He is SO nice and understands if you can't make it to a class or have to turn in a paper late. He is an amazing person with a quirky personality. TAKE HIS CLASS. trust me.
