This English class has been very different from others I have taken, besides English 1100. Most other classes I took just went through the motions of a basic English class, this one was very different from that. I actually had to push myself to achieve the grades that I wanted. This class challenged me as a writer, as well as a student. Beyond this I have learned a great deal more from this class than I have in previous English classes. The pace of the class was also a lot faster than I am used to. The papers were one after another, where in the past I had a lot of time in between papers. I definitely think I benefitted from the in class reading assignments because I had to actually think about the stories. I had to dig deeper than the surface. If I had to pick something that I benefitted least from, I think that I benefitted least from the online discussions. Although it was very nice to not have class on Fridays, and I loved that about this class, the online discussions did not teach me anything exactly. They were a nice substitute for class though, and I did not mind doing them at all.
This class did meet my expectations that I set forth at the beginning of the semester. Since I took this class last semester I had a pretty good idea of what to expect from the class. However, I was still surprised in some ways. This class is very good at sticking to the syllabus which not a lot of other teachers are capable of it seems. I have been in a lot of classes where the teacher does whatever he or she pleases with no regard to students scheduling or time. With this class I knew exactly what to expect every step of the way. Over all this was one of my favorite classes, and the easiest one to make myself get up and go to. Having to have discussions at the beginning of class definitely forces the student to engage in the class, and learn even more.

      This English class has been different from others because of the in-class discussions for one. The sarcasm and joking gives it a laid back atmosphere where we can feel comfortable. I didn't stress as ... more
