This class has benefited me greatly, I feel like I am able to understand short stories better and pull out the main points. I also feel like I have become a better writer thanks to the criticsí, which at times is harsh, but need to become better at anything. Also having those in class reading quizís helped me be able to pick apart stories better and search for their deeper meaning rather than just reading something and only glimpsing at the surface. Things that I donít think I have benefited from though are the repetitive nesses of the class where we would come in and talk about the upcoming paper due over and over again. It made sometimes coming to the class a bore and even though the enthusiasm was well appreciated as a student, I would still get tired just because talking about the same thing over and over again can get old. This English class is different than my others because I feel like you are not a bullshit teacher unlike some of the other teachers I have had in the past before. One main thing that really stands out is your enthusiasm. Whether its you just being an asshole or not it felt like you did enjoy coming to class and talking to us about what the reading assignment was or our weekends. The attitude you brought made the class more interesting rather than dull and a chore. Like my two teachers from last semester that completely lacked any structure in what they did and I know for a fact that I didnít learn one thing in their class because it was horseshit. Being straight forward and saying things that at times may seem harsh or inappropriate really opens our eyes and helps us grow up as adults. I feel like my expectations have been set but it wasnít exactly what I was expecting to be honest. I thought that my first paper would have turned out better but the overall experience is what I did expect. Overall I did enjoy your class I just wish I had done better on my first paper.
