English 1100 this semester was an interesting, and actually pretty fun class. I had motivation to come to class every day and try on my work. It was different from all of my past English classes I have ever taken because this was a writing oriented class, where as other English classes I have taken in the past have been reading oriented. In past English classes my teacher would assign my class something to read and after we read it there would barely be anything to follow up the reading. It set a tone for the class to make it seem pointless and boring. English 1100 was great because when there was reading, there was lots of follow up work to make sure we actually read, and understood the passage. I benefited from this greatly because it made me stay on top of my work, go to class, and stay awake in class. Even though I struggled writing some of the papers in this class I still enjoyed doing them because they taught me things I didnít know before I wrote them. Also, with the personal narrative it allowed me to reflect on a huge part of my life and it was very interesting. The T.C. Boyleís book was interesting too, but some of the stories in it were really boring and drug on. There was more good stories than bad, but usually the bad ones were bad because they were hard to understand sometimes. Overall this class was a huge learning experience and a great introduction to college level English classes. I now have a greater understanding on how to write college level papers than I did when I first got into East Carolina University. I know you said this wasnít an invitation to brown nose but I just have to add on that I think that you are an excellent professor. At the beginning of the semester I thought you were kind of crazy and you made the class seem like it was going to be hell. It didnít help that most of the reviews on rate my professor were pretty bad for you. But you have taught me more than any previous English teacher I have ever had, and you made the class fun to come to because you are pretty hysterical.
