ENGL 415 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Ransom is tough, but you learn (probably) more than any other ENGL 415 section. As long as you put in the effort her class isn't hard. She will help you in her office hours and is forgiving if you actually try. My technical writing skills greatly improved in her class. Over all, Ransom is the best writing teacher I have ever had.

ENGL516 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She turns your world upside down. Instead of setting a page limit she tells you to keep the page numbers down. It isn't because she's lazy, she just wants you to get to the point. Very good English teacher.

Engl415 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She teaches a lot and expects a lot from her students. No half-assing papers here. I was surprised how much time this course took to do and do correctly - I feel like I learned a LOT this semester but I'm grateful it's over... Just write your papers exactly like she says and you'll get an A - just expect papers to take forever to write.

ENGL516 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She knows how to control the class...the class doesn't control her! I had fun in her class b/c she is a fun person. This class had a major technical writing project with several related smaller projects throughout the semester. She's always willing to help outside class...she even requires conferences outside class to discuss assignment grades.

ENG110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

nora ransom really knows her stuff. she is a good teacher, but she's also one tough cookie. i have her for honors english, and we just write papers. she's a pretty hard grader, so if you're not a good writer, i wouldn't recommend the class. if you're pretty good, you should be fine. she makes the class pretty fun.
