This class was very interesting. I have never had a teacher give a ten minute free write before. I am still not really sure what the purpose is but whatever the teacher says sometimes has meaning behind it. The stories we read in this class were so different from other English classes. I enjoyed reading the stories because they were not what I expected to read in an English class. The grading of the papers was very harsh but you did give us a chance to come to your office and receive help. When I took advantage of that help I received an A. I am not really sure if that was because you helped me or because all I did in high school was literary analysis. I have not received my argument paper back so if I do terrible on this one then I know that going to your office actually help me succeed on the literary analysis paper.
Coming to this class was like walking into a mystery every day. I never knew what was going to happen. Sometimes we would talk about the stories and sometimes we would have an in class essay about the stories. Then when we finally had our third in class essay an everyone thought the surprise ones were over. But we had a fourth one and it was sort of a shock to everyone but no one said anything.
I liked coming to class and turning in our papers and leaving because it took about seven minutes and then I would have basically two hours to spare before my next class. I also like that we had an eleventh discussion because I somehow forgot about the 10th one, when I have been so consistent. I was so relieved when I came to class and found put that we could do an eleventh one for extra credit. For me the eleventh one is about getting a ten out of ten rather than eleven out of ten.
Coming to this class was a struggle, because it is at ten oíclock in the morning. But overall I really did enjoy the class.

      English 1100 has been interesting this year. The class was a pretty typical English course. The thing that made the course different then all the others was you. You were hard on grading but it was... more
