4. What did you like best about this class?
This class was one of the best classes I've been in. I enjoyed the materials we learned in this class, and how Emma White got involved in our learning process.
the thing that i like about this class was writing a memo for each chapter.
The interaction with students and instructor, very fun class
The class is interactive and not all writing assignments are cookie cutter assignments, there is room for us to grow and expand our writing abilities.
The best part about this class was the freedom and openness available. Everyone's opinions were welcome and were fully discussed.
Students worked as a team then presented chapter feedback to the overall class.
I love Emma's style of teaching, her goal is to teach us what we will actually use and need in future careers and real life.
This class has taught how to write a resume and cover letter that has made me learn more about myself. I enjoyed class lectures that showed videos on writing a blog. It gave a break from book work and it related to real life situations that shows how it can be done.
we discussed about chapters beginning every class, then we presented it to the class. it is very helpful to remember the information.
I liked that we learned how to write better and include the audiences feelings in our writing.
I liked how we got to work in groups and allow other people to help us with our work.
I like the time and care Ms. White spends on comments and feedback when grading our writing assignments. I feel I've learned a whole lot more in English and business writing than I already knew. The perspective I've gained in her is class, is current and useful for years to come.
The growth in my learning curve, it was awesome
I liked meeting new students, & I liked learning new things on how to effectively write business messages, communicate in a world of diversity, write resumes that will get you the job that you , I also got to learn about tumblr (blogging).
everything
Emily is a hands on instructor who interacts with her students.
The chapter memos because it retains more when other people share it
I like that it was very interactive and thou it got me out of my comfort zone it helped me to understand the material.
interesting class
Exercises in skills that will be applied in the real world. Also having a teacher with experience and enthusiasm for the subjects she is teaching.
Emma gives great feedback on our work and shows us ways we can improve each week. She also teaches us information that is relevant to our lives and will be helpful in the future.
I liked this class because Emma seemed to care about what she was teaching. She always showed up to class with alot of energy. She also took the time to keep the class schedule constantly updated on laulima as well as provide helpful links for use on the assignments.
Emily used great outside sources to compliment the required reading and topics.
I thought this class was going to be hard because it was writing intensive, but Emma spread the writing out so it was not multiple big papers. Instead it was many short papers
Emily was open to different suggestions on the way how our class was. Different age groups, she respected. She had a rule that no children weren't allowed stated in the syllabus. I had an emergency where I had to bring my 3-year old to class. She responded right away to my voice mail and understood my situation. I am thankful for her understanding. She said, "Today's class is very important and I need you there."
What I liked best about the class is that we go over every chapter and talk about it in class.
I enjoyed her ability to relate with the students. Everything was very simplified. Emma is a very good speaker and teacher.
I learned a lot not only about business writing but about myself.
What I liked best about the class was that she kept the students engaged with different activities every class. There was never a boring class.
I liked that we had a lot of in class activities that helped us with the lessons that we were learning at the time.
My business writing skills improved, but not only business writing; its also in other writing assignments. As this class comes to an end, there are buy backs on books for students. I'm planning on keeping my eng209 book due to the useful things that are included in their. keeping this book may help me in my future in employments.
o Very open and engaging o encouraged contributions from all students o assignments were applicable to "real world" encounters o instructor took the time to interact with all students
5. What 3 ideas, concepts or thoughts will you use from this COURSE?
We learned about how to write resume's which I will definately use in the real world when applying for a job.
write a good resume cover letter don"t write a caps letter on email
Be open, honest and fair
How to eliminate useless language, keep things short and relevant, keep an audience centered writing style.
Business Communications, resume writing, and cultural differences.
The 3 ideas that I would use from this COURSE are, 1) communication must be geared towards "audience centered" 2) plan, write and complete message towards "audience centered" 3) the effective use of medium for the message
Everything!!
- using business languages - making resume - how to write negative messages
-My resume and action words on my resume -Considering the audiences feelings when writing -Analyzing which approach to use (Indirect vs. Direct)
The resume, cover letter, and being proposals.
The "you" centered writing (writing for your audience) Newly learned "Blogging skills Resume Writing, usually a daunting task, doable...because of Ms. White. Thank so much.
How to apply the three step process to my assignments. My new resume How to ask for what I need in a professional manner.
*Write Resumes that helps me to obtain the position that I want and allows the employer to notice me. *Working better with teams. Teams although they can be a fuss at times to work with, they are better than working alone, because this way everyone has contributed an idea to the topic at hand. *Become a better blogger. It wasn't until this course that I knew that blogging is used in everyday business. I think that blogging is also an effective way to communication.
resume effect business writing effective emails
Resume Cover Letters Never write in caps in an email if you are not yelling
The concept of managerial writing. This was not like a 100 level class. Emma pushed to get the best out of me when writing. Staying on top of the work because we were doing something new every week, so there was no room for not doing any work.
I have more confidence in my business writing skills. More familiar with all the current communication 2.0 resources. A more solid structure to my business writing skills.
I will use the cover letter, resume and interview information that I learned in this course for the rest of my life. I really liked how she put a strong emphasis on these concepts because they are important and have real world applications.
To take the time and really think about what you are going to write before your just jump in. To be extra sure to write as if you were going to receive the letter, making you think about how you would like to receive the new that you are giving. The class also tought the proper way to write a resume which very helpful both for school and for actual use.
- using the "you" attitude to write effective business messages - the AIDA model for writing effective persuasive messages - how to write a better resume and cover letter
I really was interested in the topics about emails, and the different ways to ensure the strength and fluidity of the email. The topics I will use are the multiple steps of improving an email.
1. Sandwich method 2. GOOGLE! 3. Application, resume, and interview planning for future jobs.
The AIDA model for employment, the interview questions, and the resume
1. Removing unnecessary words from my messages 2. Writing more briefly 3. Removing my emotions from business messages. I'll save that for my diary.
writing a resume creating a cover letter good research knowledge and skills
1. Google 2. My english209 book that i will be keeping, once it comes to work. 3. using a very appropriate email.
o awareness of other cultures in the workplace o awareness that the job market today is an international one o awareness of other cultures and business practices abroad are different from what we are accustomed to in our own country
6. I was an active learner in this course by regularly attending class and completing all course assignments.

7. To complete this course successfully, how many hours each week would a typical student devote to course work outside of class?
A student should devote at least 6-7 hours outside of class to successfully comnplete this course.
i spent a lot on time on TLC and doing my homework.
At lease an hour a day
2-3 hours of reading and 2-3 hours of writing; some weeks more or less
At least 4-6 hours.
To complete this course successfully, I spent about total of 8 hours. Reading a chapter took about 4 hours, 3-point memo took about 2 hours and finally 2 hours was for chapter review.
It really depends on how well you understand the concepts and the words, I spend less time than most probably because I am advanced in this subject already being a business owner, I spend about 4 hours a week outside of class.
in my opinion, students should spend at least six hours per week to complete this course successfully.
at least 4 hours
2 hours
Five hours
I would have to say about 6 hours at home. There where only two classes days per week, but with the reading, and memos, and homework, I would say that for me, I would do 2 hours a day for three days.
10
about 2 hours a week to do my chapter assignments and other homework that emily has assigned
Professor White always see me in the learning Center, and i spent a lot of time, i just lost track, but completed my homework on time.
5-7
I think about 12-15 hours a week outside of class.
4 hours
6-8 hours per week
Personally I am a fast learner and thinker. This course needed about 2-3 hours of my attention each week. Therefore I would advise a typical student to spend at least 3-4 hours a week on this class at home.
Outside of class, a typical student will have to devote 2-3 hours of study time to complete assignments and other work.
6 hours a week
I would have to devote 3-6 hours per week.
8 hrs. per class
9
at least 6 hours a week outside of class
four hours each week. depending on the assignments that are given.
Whew, too hard to say. I am not a fast reader, and this class was reading intensive for me. The completion of homework assignments homework assignments relied on the understanding of the text materials.
8. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
I found this course to be very interesting and valuable, especially towards my futre. What I feel was the most valuable asset about this course is the instructor. Emma White is a wonderful teacher and I fully recommend other students that need to take English 209 to take Emma White's class.
How I can be who I am and then be professional enough to suceed
I find the text to be very helpful as I can take it with me once the semester ends, Professor White has been very useful in providing out of the box knowledge, how to rearrange our train of thoughts and get out of our comfort zones to produce better writing, better memos, better letters.
The most valuable and helpful thing about this course was the ability for students to share and discuss their work to help in writing their draft's next revision.
I found that weekly writing of 3-point memo was most helpful. Even reading the textbook was fun due to real life examples.
Everything is related to real life business correspondence. The final project, letters of recommendation and the resume writing I will probably use throughout the rest of my life.
I found that using different style in approaching messages can be really useful when trying to persuade your audience to do what you want (direct and indirect approach). Taking into consideration of culture values when writing messages are also important.
how to write different types of business messages
I found that my writing improved a lot during this course.
I found that my writing still needs a lot of work and that this class has helped to improve my writing.
Emma's professional teaching and application to our class.
I always think that everything an instructor teaches his/her students is valuable and helpful. If it wasn't of any use to the students, then I feel that they would not be teaching in the first place.
the textbook and teacher
this course helped me learn more on how to write in business form.
The chapter memos, resumes, and cover letters. I will use all my knowledge for this class in the outside world.
Emma White's experience and teaching style.
How to write a cover letter and resume.
Having access to computers
Again I found the topics about emails to be the most important because many conversations in today's society especially the business society, are conducted through emails.
I found that what was most valuable was coming to class. I never missed any classes, but I know that if I did, Emma would be available through email or phone to be contacted about absence issues.
What I found helpful was the team work with our classmates
The most valuable piece of information I got from this course was the AIDA model: which is when persuading someone, grab their Attention, gain their Interest, make them Desire your idea, and then take Action.
Learning about resumes.
writing my resume
Writing professional business messages, letters, and emails. If you do it professionally the audience who you have sent it to will take you seriously.
this class was very helpful in preparation for the job market, and also awareness of the effect that the internet has in relationship to human resources and overall communications.

16. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
I feel that Emma White doesn't need to improve this course. She is a wonderful teacher that makes students want to learn.
i got confused on her weekly schedule...
She has it set up perfectly
Have certain students who try to overrun the class and change the subject SHUT UP!!! One student is very distracting and Emma is very good at offering her help on the side, but the lady won't shut up and distracts and disturbs the students at times.
Nothing to drastic needed to be improved.
Emily White is on the right track with the skills she is using in our class. The skills Ms. White uses are: Class works as a team, presents the feedback to the overall class. This way, Emily White was able to work with each team before respective team feedback.
The way the weekly assignments are written is a bit confusing. I would suggest a clear list of assignments and their due dates, not so much of the "next class" and what we will be doing in class etc. and if a due date changes, just put that next to the old one with the words "new due date". If this was a little more clear, it would be easier to keep track of what we need to be doing and when. The good thing is we can always ask her!
Emily did excellent in this course. She knew the material well and she know how to make class involve in class. She Can give more time for writing assignment, and talk about the grades for each assignment more.
She was really good. At times, I didn't understand what she wanted from the assignments. Everyone writes different and I didn't know what she wanted exactly.
Nothing I can think of.
nothing
N/A
she's already good
she's doing a great job in instructing her students.
I got confused about the homework schedules, but maybe delete the previous one and only post the one related to this week. But still upload it to the laulima.
I think the only thing that could be improved is the weekly assignment schedule. The way it is formatted is a little confusing.
I honestly believe this course was well taught personally I liked it as is.
Emily White can improve the teaching course with being organized with her syllabus. During class, she was devoted to what was being done during class, but for homework, sometimes I would be confused. It would be a great idea to have an agenda for the class and homework assignment on the board and have it matched to the syllabus. By the time class is almost ending, everyone forgets what is due next class. Weekly agenda was posted on Laulima, but I found it hard to be updated every week and scroll all the way to the last page to see what was being expected of me.
She can improve it by accepting doctor notes to back up our absents.
I didn't enjoy the weekly homework assignments. I found some of them to be just reading and then repeating what I learned, in my own words. Maybe it's just because I'm a visual learner and reading is more than enough for me. I also didn't enjoy the blog that we had to make, I found it tedious copying and pasting.
Have more examples for each chapter.
everything was perfect
The syllabus didn't match our daily assignments that we were assigned. Somethings were switched around. It was hard to read the assignment syllabus; everything was all cramed up. for next class, you should have it more organized and easier to read for the students. for example: HW: 1.dasdsadadsada 2.ssdsadadas 3.sadlkshjkhfkjdh Due: 1. skdjhskfjhsaklfhdkha
There is always room for improvement, but with Emma it's a tight fit.
17. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
I found Emma White to be very helpful and knowledgable in this class. She was always there when a student needs help and gives all her students her total support throughout the semester.
she always helpful to each students to explain the homework
Her enthusiasm and genuine manner
A completely different style of writing was presented in this class, different from ENG 100, 104 or any other course I had ever been in.
Her being open for questions, in or out of class about the assignments or our progress.
Ms. White was able to hear the concern of students during or after class.
Emma is real, meaning, she understands real life and doesn't want to waste our time doing things that won't be important to us in the real world. She is excellent at making sure that we will apply her teaching to our everyday life challenges.
Emily was very active and has wide knowledge about class.
Emily is always there if you need help.
I really liked how she took the time to answer any questions we had.
She is genuinely involved in the process right along with us!
That she helped me understand that I can be on the Honor Role
She was always available either by e-mail, or after class. She even put her personal cellphone number incase you needed to reach her, she is prompt in responding to e-mail.
class involvement
she is always there when you need help or if you have any questions.
Shes always clear and precisse on things, and explains very well if we have questions
I think because she was also a lawyer before she became an English teacher gives her a unique perspective on things. It is also very helpful because this is a business centered English class. She has knowledge about how the business world works and knows how to apply the thing we learn in class to situations we may encounter later in life.
A genuine passion for teaching and the subject matter. That was very refreshing!
Emma was very enthusiastic, which made coming to class fun. This intern kept me interested.
Emily White is a lawyer and views our English 209 subject as a stepping stone to a job like hers. Not only does she know the legal laws, but she has pride and patience to teach it to older and younger students. Her passion for teaching showed how much she cares about people. I didn't know she was part of the honor society here at UHMC as well. With her newly being moved here with her husband, this shows her dedication for students achieving high standards, something that she wants for everyone; to become their best.
She explains everything well
I liked her ability to make business writing fun and simple. I enjoyed coming to class, even if it was just to work in groups.
She showed concern for the students when after the first class, she found us a class with computers and air-conditioning.
she is very detailed about her instructions, which makes it easier to accomplish the assignments.
her knowledge about the business field about how she was very experienced.
Her encouraging of open class participation, and availability if you needed help.
18. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
She is a wonderful teacher and I wish I could have her again in other classes.
Out of this world I will recommend her to friends and family
She is a great Professor, pulls a lot of her knowledge of being a lawyer and professional woman into the class. She provides a lot of insight to how things are viewed and useful in the professional world.
Great teacher and very enthusiastic about the course!
She is an effective teacher!
Incredibly knowledgeable, great energy, caring, devoted, understanding, realistic, absolutely the best teacher I have ever had!
very good
Emily is a great English teacher.
She is a great teacher.

A+
Awesome, upbeat individual. Always smiling.
excellent
that she is an awesome teacher who really knows how to teach her students in a way that they are all engaged.
Shes a good teacher, she loves to help us if we are stuck, but also leads us into questioning ourselves for the resume if its a skill or not. Shes very helpful, and praises us very often.
Excellent
She is a great teacher. She is very organized, knows her material and listens to her students suggestions.
Amazing teacher
Awesome instructor, one of the best I've had here at UHMC!
Emma is a great teacher, she is the type of teacher I hope to get in my upper division classes.
Emily White is overall one of the best instructors I've ever had. I am not over exaggerating, but I would definitely ask her to be one of my references for a job in the future. I am actually fortunate to have taken her class because I never had a teacher say that, "once you are my student, you will always be my student."
Shes a good instructor
An informative teacher with many things to share. More teachers should reflect what she is doing in their own respective subjects.
She is a great teacher.
A great English professor who takes pride in her job.
One of the best instructors, i recommend taking her class. she may be a little strict but you learn ALOT from her. She makes learning fun. We learned by working together in groups too. Doing a lot of group work was helpful and made things not boring. Doing that makes me want to come to class more.
One of the best instructors I had this semester. I will definitely recommend to other students.

I think the best thing about this class was Emma being my teacher. Of all my years, including high school, Emma has been the best teacher I had. I never really needed any help from her, but I love that she is very optimistic. Always looking for a brighter picture, never putting anyone down, and always willing to help her students. I would have to say she made me feel like as if any thing in the world is possible. Even at times when I was struggling with my attendance and turning in some of my assignments, she was always really encouraging.

I found studying and doing the work most valuable and helpful about this course.
I found Emma White to be most valuable and helpful throughout the course b/c she was always very optimistic and encouraging. Not only that but when we had to do reading assignments from our textbook, it always related to our homework assignments. On top of that, the next class session she would always ask student if they had questions regarding the reading and homework assignments. Plus Emma would always give us students seperate links with information that would help with our assignments.

16. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
It would help to get more time to work on essays.
I think she should give more personal help to those who are struggling in the class.
maybe not so harsh with the deadline
There is very little room for improvement because Emma is a very thorough teacher.
Shes the BEST!!!
she's good so i don't know which part she needs to improve
Emily White can improve teaching this course by giving more rough drafts for the first couple of writing assignments, so the students can make more improvements to improve their score.
She's amazing.
Nothing
nothing
I feel she did great all around and i wouldn't change a thing
Be clear on some of the homework and essays.
I don't think she needs to improve. As long as the student is willing to learn than they are set.
17. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
Emma is a kind hearted person that make the time for her students.
She's always willing to help and answer questions to make it better to understand.

she was very willing to share the information she had with us
Her eagerness for me to succeed in this course.
everything
she's approachable
I found being independent and making improvements by myself and not wait for the instructor most valuable from Emily White
Her kind loving spirit
She is smart and animated therefor she is interesting to listen to
She is well organized and how she utilizes Laulima
She always knew what to say when i, or anyone had a question about their essays.

Awesome! She is a very positive, caring, helpful person.
SHES THE BEST!!!

Emily White is a good teacher for English. She is passionate on the subject and knows a lot about the topic as well.

She is an excellent teacher.
excellent, love her!!
She is a very helpful teacher when it comes to us students needing help.

5. To complete this course successfully, how many hours each week would a typical student devote to course work outside of class?
it would be around 4-8 hours depending the work
around 8 hours
For ever hour in class you need at least three hours
I generally spent 4-6 hours doing homework and studying for quizzes each week.
The amount of time that you need to devote outside of class depends on the speed that you are able to complete the My Reading Lab Activities. Any Where From 6-10 Hours.
I take up about 10+ hours, depending on what we're doing in class.
6
The my reading labs take up way too much time for something that we don't seem to spend a lot of class time talking about. I think if those were streamlined a bit the could be about 3hours of homework each week.
two to four hours a week outside class
I would have to say about 4 to 5 hours depending on the assignments.
6-8 hours. for every hour in class a student should devote 3-4 hours outside of class.
I would usually spend two to four hours studying or doing work at home.
At least 15. We are given a lot of work to do.
atleast two. students also need to be motivated to pass and willing to work for it.
Approximately 4-6 hours a week, depending on the assignments.
I think around 4 hours a week should be devoted to this class to complete this course.
Probably 1 to 3 depending on whether there was a reading log that week.
4-6
I believe that 9 hours each week because you're given assignments that require you to think critically.
2 to 4 hours.
probably no more than 2 hours at the most.
I believe it would be nine hours a week devoted to classwork.
Outside of class, two to three hours of extra work is required in successfully meeting the course requirements.
6 to 8
22 Hours.
about 2-3
at least 6 hours a week
A typical student devotes almost 6 hours outside of class each week.
To be successful in this class a total of about 8-9 Hours a week is typically required.
About 40 hours a week.
To complete successfully the English 102 that has 3 credits, the students should devote 9 hours per week outside the class.
9-12
2-3 hours a day.
5 hours
At least 8 hours
4
8 hrs
On an average students should expect to spend atleast 5-8 hours per week.
6. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
the different teaching methods
Emma provided all of her students with many sites to help us not only for this course but sites that will be very helpful throughout all our college years. I also found that her time and help was very valuable in the course. If any one had questions or needed help, she was always there, and would email us or text us in a short period of time.
That our teacher always ask us if we need help
I found the logical fallacies section to be most useful.
The most valuable part about this course was that we had the oppertunity to learn new vocabulary and reading skills within the course.
The way she engages with everyone.
It was very inclusive and I learned useful new techniques.
I thought this course was a bit under my ability level and have been wondering why this is the higher placement class from our placement tests. That was pretty discouraging.
The final project.
That it wasn't like other English classes that seemed overwhelming. The student was allowed to go at their own pace in a way.
I find the explanation of simple terms to be helpful. This course breaks down writing and reading in its most basic form, allowing me to understand it even more than I did or thought I did.
learning how to read, annotate, and take lecture notes
I thought the assignments were pretty interesting, especially the reading logs.
Emma herself. Her attitude and realistic approach has been awesome.
It showed me how extremely lazy I am. It's simple assignments were informing.
Learning different study skills and time management.
The most valuable things I learned from this course would be critical thinking and applying logic in everyday life.
Learning the Cornell note-taking method, how to find reliable research sources, and how to discern the author's deeper meaning and motivation were all very useful.
The way she explains the material. She breaks it down to it's core and starts from there.
this course helped me improved a lot in reading but also the way that i approach reading in my other classes.
The way the teacher instructs us, how she is so helpful.
The ability to broaden my reading, writing,& critical thinking skills and just to become a better student in general.
Most of the information that was taught in class was somewhat new to me. I had a general idea about most of the concepts but this class went further into depth and revealed a lot of ways to make completing college assignments a lot easier. I especially loved the paraphrasing song activity.
Having Emma as a teacher was a huge advantage because she spends a lot of time making clear explanations and she is very helpful and usually readily available.
Emily White seemed to be generally interested in her students. She was always there to answer questions and help us when needed.
What I found most valuable and helpful through this course was the positive encouragement provided by our teacher. She was extremely organized when it came to our weekly assignments, which was VERY helpful, especially since it is a WI course. Many of the assignments were fun, yet thought provoking, and her advice and tips helped me grasp many of the different concepts that we learned. I found her positive encouragement motivating, and her sincerity to help us achieve our goals only made me want to challenge myself and try even harder. It was a wonderful semester for me, and I highly enjoyed this class. I have learned so much about reading and how I can utilize different concepts in order to further understanding my reading.
The fact that we were able to see what each other posted and learn from that.
My reading Lab was most helpful.
It helped me do better on my grammars because we did a lot of writings. I acquired new words that i did not know before.
I found many of the study skills and study habits taught in the course such as note taking and annotating were very helpful.
This entire course was helpful, I learned a lot.
English 102 is difficult as I thought, but I learned to be a critical reader by engaging myself like asking questions of what the author trying to tell to the readers and finding the main idea of what the aurthor's point. SQ3R play big role in helping the students develop to be a critical reader.
her videos and her explanations on the weekly schedules on how to do the assignment.
The Teacher of course. This is my 2nd class that i am taking from her because i just love her style and personality. She is always there to help out her students in any way she can. MRL is a very helpful tool that made me stronger in some sections of english.
n/a
Professor White is the most valuable source and was the most helpful online instructor I have ever had. Due to her ability to teach online courses so well I am currently receiving an A in her class.
MRL
Learning how to extract information from texts.
The text we used, Bridging The Gap was a great tool. And some of the writing assignments I thought was creative such as finding a video that best described a poem.

14. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
when we are left alone for the whole class period it would be better to tell students to just not come class and do the work at home
I thought that this course does not need any improvement! Emma was very organized and very clear of what needs to be done, when things were due, and also extended some due dates for several assignments. It was nice to work in groups and interact with our fellow classmates. In the middle of the course, she was also open to suggestions and acted upon those suggestions. Also, for our final project, I liked how she gave us an option of choosing one out of three different projects to do considering we all learn and want to do things differently.
N/A
I think Emily did a great job teaching this course and I can't think of anything that would improve the teaching of this course.
I felt like the final project information was given a little too late and so abrupt. More time should be given to complete the final projects.
Be a little more clear with instructions.
I thought the speed reading chapter at the end of the book could have been included earlier.
This class might be better suited as an online class. Also, I found it silly that the teacher was allowed to be sick or have other engagements during class time like handing out popcorn (I believe 5 or 6 days of missed class all in all) but the students were not able to bring doctor's notes to excuse absences.
Kepp the students attached. I (as well as others) HATE MRL assignments.
Keep up with what she is doing.
I believe Emma has done an outstanding job. Everything is clear and organized in the weekly assignment schedule she gives us.
I thought the in-class assignments were fun especially the paraphrase exercise. I still enjoy paraphrasing rap songs!
Give a little more room at the end with the final projects due, seems that every week we have something else to work on too, when are we supposed to get all the reading and blogging done?
Accept late work. Just kidding. Your doing a great job.
I really have no complaints about this course, except for the beginning lessons feeling a bit rudimentary. It took a while to get to the things that I really needed to learn, like critical thinking.
There were several times when class would just be a five-minute overview of what to do that day rather than a full class. I think if being there isn't really critical, all of us would have been better served if she had simply sent out an email with the same information because we've got other things to do.
She can get a room with computers that work all the time. Our computer in the class wouldn't work all the time so she would have to send us to working computers and not be able to lecture to us, which we suffered because of the computers in the room. Not her fault but we sure did suffer because of it.
I believe that there's not much to improve on other than the fact that she needs a better classroom with more reliable equipment.
She already does teaching best.
Honestly i dont think she could improve it because she has it so well set up, and her teaching style is so easy to go along with that despite the large workload it was one of my easier classes this semester.
Never use the library as a classroom ever again!
I don't think much improvement is needed with this course.
Emily did an amazing job and there isn't anything that needs improving in this course. The weekly assignments were perfect for me because following a checklist makes learning much clearer and more organized for me.
My only gripe here is that Emma should allow notes/open books on the final exam. I don't know why so many teachers are adamant on not allowing students extra help on something so important. There's nothing wrong on getting more help outside so we can do the best job we can. I often compare school to jobs in the real world; if someone is told what to do and they are not sure what to do/what the answer is, is there some unwritten rule that restricts them from getting help elsewhere? No, there's not. There is absolutely nothing wrong with using outside help to get the job done. I truly believe that any class in school, either high school or college, that implement this teaching method are not setting up their students for the real world.
By giving a better explanation of the reading logs
I think she should lessen homework every week.
I see no way in which she could improve the course, she was readily available and engaging despite being an online course.
I think she does a good job with teaching this course, not much needed to improve on.
Emily White is a good teacher in the classroom and on-line. Being on-line students need tons of motivation in order to fully understand the course. And she did it motivate us. She keeps us follow up to see to it if where on the right tract.
n/a
She did very well in presenting this course but, i had a hard time hanging on during parts of the class. It was difficult for me to understand some parts because i am starting to learn how to critically think which is what you need to do in this course.
I do not recommend Emily White for special need people, and I do not recommend taking emily white's internet courses, maybe if it was sky bridge then yes, because its a slower pace.
She doesn't.
excellent teacher
I think she does a great job.
I believe Emily White could improve if she had less students. She would be able to have more time working with those taking the on line class. Graded essays rarely had notes on how to improve. And many times we never got our papers back until weeks later. Also, during the middle of the semester Emily created a sign up sheet for students to schedule a phone/skype one-one meeting to discuss how we as students are doing. I thought this was a great idea. However, at the half way point, she cancelled the appointments with a unreasonable excuse. And then left it up to each student to contact her. I didnt appreciate this as I had to juggle my appointments to be at home at a specific time on a specific day, when she last minute cancelled the appointment. Last, it would be a big help for students if Emily White posts weekly assignments consistently.
15. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
EXCELLENT! very nice
I give Emma an 'A' for teaching :] I feel that Emma did the best of her ability to teach this course. I learned several different things that I wish I had learned in high school. She is sweet, very organized, enthusiastic, and really passionate about teaching and cares for each and every one of her students. She's always there to help. I'd most definitely suggest other students to enroll in her classes!
she is an awesome teacher
Emily always had a clear lesson plan to follow. Her class was only canceled twice, and the first time was because she was sick. The second time, I was able to see that class was canceled in advance and we had course work that was easy to find.
she was a nice intelligent instructor.
She is very enthusiastic about what she teaches and making sure students understand the course well.
She's a great teacher, and knows what she's talking about.
She was kind and effective.
a great teacher, I feel that she knows this material. I think that everyone in this class knows this material and that it needs to have different, more challenging material. This is college, after all.
Good teacher, young but has solid teaching skills.
Wonderful teacher
Emma White is a great teacher. If someone does not understand something, she takes a different approach to it, which is great because everyone learns differently.
very good
Very pleasant and enthusiastic.
I love Emma ! She is great, I have been grateful for her being my teacher for this course. I know she is very responsive to issues that may come up and she is flexible. She is real and "gets it". Sometimes I don't think she sees the time limits we have, even some of the in class activities were not planned around only having an hour in class and so we could not finish them. This is because she believes in getting things done, no matter what. After all, she is a lawyer ! LOL
Very enthusiastic and knows her material very well. She gave a lot of helpful tips to completing assignments and clarified any questions students had. Great instructor.
She is very enthusiastic and very knowledgeable on the subject. She is very helpful to her students and gives off the vibe that she genuinely wants us to succeed.
Fun, caring, smart and helpful, and extremely clear about what the students need to do and when.
She is an awesome teacher! I enjoyed her class very much and I have a hard time with some teachers but she is trully engaging. She encourages participation all the time and she really gets into the material and teaches it in different ways where we don't get bored and actually can retain the information.
Emily is a great teacher. She explains the content in a way that can easily be understood. I believe that she is one the best english teachers that I've ever had.
Best English teacher ever!
She is an awesome teacher with a great teachimng style that understands course material thoroughly.
Very well organized, but I think that the difficulties with the technology sort of hindered the class' full potential. She is very knowledgeable and approachable with anything. Amazing instructor.
that she is a wonderful teacher and that she does a great job of getting us to understand concepts easily.
I would recommend her to anyone who wanted a quality class.
110%. In fact, I wish I could take more classes from her. She was extremely helpful, patient and kind when it came to learning. She had a sense of humor that made reading enjoyable, and the material she let us read broad so we were able to grasp concepts that related more to our interests. She helped me answer any questions I had within a short time frame, and she complimented us on what we did right and never focused on our mistakes which would only discourage us. I highly recommend Emily to any one of my friends because she simply is an amazing professor.
She's a really nice teacher, although I think I would have done better if I went to campus, rather than online for her class.
She was great!
Ms. Emily overall to me is a very helpful teacher. Even though it is an online class, she still manages to explain everything clearly to me and I would say to the rest of my classmates.
A very good teacher, flexible, yet keeps the students engaged. The assignments she assigns are interesting topics relevant to current events, and in teaching English she also succeeds in teaching students about other topics as well and informing them.
This class was really good. It is so far the only WI class that I stuck with and I thank Emily of that.
Emily White is an excellent motivator especially to on-line students.
she is a great teacher and i learned a lot in this class.
She is an Awesome teacher!
n/a
Awesome!!
I learned a lot in Emily White's class. Very detailed.
10 out of 10
With practice she can become a better On-line class teacher. She did allow students to be creative in some of the assignments.
16. Other comments:
I just want to thank you for teaching this course, and also being there when we needed help, even if it wasn't relevant to the class, and also being so lenient and patient with us. I'm glad I signed up with you! Have a great summer, and hopefully i'll get the opportunity to enroll in another one of your courses. Take care :]
She should try to make sure she has a working key to the classroom with her everyday because the ENG 100 class that was before our class was canceled often and we would have to wait outside for a couple minutes until Ms. White could locate someone to open the door for us.
My reading lab is whack! Some of the questions asked need work. Subjective
This is a very challenging course, and it is difficult to stay caught up when taking 3 other classes.
This was definitely a worthwhile choice for my WI class.
Please get the computers and internet in Library 101 working reliably! Ms. White had a lot of trouble with them and had to improvise quite a bit due to technical problems.
Please give her a room with a working computer that works all the time so that she can use the time to lecture instead of sending students to working computers.
I have nothing else to add.
Thank you so much for the exciting and knowledge filled semester! It was one of my favorite courses through all the years I've been in college, and I truly appreciate all of time and effort you took out in order to help me succeed. The assignments were fun and I admired your sense of humor! Thank you for being patient with me, even though I asked some rather lame questions haha. You gave wonderful advice and always communicated with me effectively. Thank you for everything and I hope one day I can take another class of yours. Take care and have an amazing summer!
!
As what I've mentioned earlier, I think It would be really helpful for us, students if she lessens homework every week. I just thought she gave a workload of home work every week.
n/a
She's really an excellent on-line teacher.
If other online instructors taught based on her structure, class outside of the classroom would be much more organized and thought provoking.
For all teachers who decide to teach ON LINE: Be conscious about how many students you take on for the semester - don't over do yourself. You cheat the Student as well as yourself when you take on TOO MUCH.

6. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
Emma's teaching style is great and made everything so much easier to learn.
I thought that the links and other outside information that was given by Emily was very useful and helpful for the course.
Writing with a Passion
I found it most valuable for the helpful handouts and days we would spend in class working on papers,especially that research paper. The smarthing was a great tool and it helped me develop better papers.I also liked the free writing idea! The free writing was part of the first stage in helping me write all my ideas. It would take me hours to write a rough draft,but after a while Id just let my ideas flow onto my paper. Now essays arent so scary to me.
I found that the essays we had to do were really helpful. It helped me to think outside of the box and challenged me in my writing.
Everything!!!
I found that Emma wasn't a cold teacher but rather a very helpful teacher taught me the value of showing or telling and was very helpful in helping me in my grammar.
This course helped me with my grammar skills and the correct format of writing successful essays.

14. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
Nothing, she's a great teacher.
I don't think she needs any improving. I wish every teacher could be as organized and easy to understand as she is.
I learned so much from this class, but maybe if we got a peer review from her it would lead us toward a better direction for a final draft. I didn't like some of the reviews I got from other classmates. Some were very short and not specific. I would try to give specifics and examples in mine,but sometimes I felt wrong in my advice given.
There is no way Emily White can improve. She is an example of a great, well- organized teacher.
She did a wonderful job, but at the same time maybe she explains to many things at once its hard to keep up with what she is talking about.
Nothing..she is really great at teaching.
I personally think that she doesn't need any improvements for this course.
15. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
She's one of the best english teachers I ever had, and she has an easy to learn teaching style.
She's an excellent teacher. I really enjoyed being in her class and wouldn't change how she teaches. She's very informative and always willing to help with anything her students needs.
She has great teaching skills and cares about the students. She taught me to feel comfortable with writing and that I don't have to speak like a robot to sound professional. Her enthusiasm created a fun atmosphere, and I enjoyed learning how to write better essays in her class. I used to dread English class because I didn't know how to organize my thoughts, but after taking her class, I feel like I have developed stronger skills to make my points clear to my audience. Thanks Mrs. White!
Emily White was very enthusiastic in her teaching, she knew what she was talking about, and made an effort to engage with her students.
Excellent!!!
She is a very good teacher and i have enjoyed her class she is a helpful fun teacher and i would highly recommend her to any of my friends as an English teacher.
Really great teacher. She knows what she is doing, teaches in a fun way to help us get the knowledge in our minds, and always available for questions or help if needed.
She is a very helpful teacher. She makes sure we turn in our work on time and gets a good grade on our assignments.

I would say about 6 to 7 hours a week.
6 hrs

I have dedicated and average of eight hours a week to this course
I worked 3-4 hours a week at this class. A lot of writing is involved in this class along with editing and proof reading skills.

To complete this course 3-5 hours depending on what assignment is given each week.
after most classes we had a memo to write, so we always kept busy. i would say 2 hours for two days of the week is devoted to memos, while everyday before a due date for a writing assignment, the student will add something new and continue to work towards a final draft.
-- snipped --
I can only speak from personal experience, and with an A in the class I was successful when I spend approximately 5 hours a week outside of class on this subject.
I spent around 4-8 hours a week for this class.
From like 2-4 hours a week depending on how much assignments and the type of assignments are assigned for that week
A student would have to devote 3 hours per credit-18 hours outside of class.
-- snipped --
-- snipped --
Hard to determine. A lot.
I believe a student should allow 4-6 hours a week to be successful in their weekly assignments or projects.

6. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
Everything!
The whole course really has taught me a lot about business and about being more organized and professional. I can relate the class into my everyday life which I feel is very important and useful.
Writing memos, interviewing workshop, resumes, and cover letters
This course has a lot of valuable information. All of the topics we discussed will be used within our professional careers. However, I feel the process of planning your reports and other written material to be important.
I learned how to edit content down to just the most valuable pieced of information and present them in a way that is easy to understand for everyone.
I found getting feedback from my instructor on my writing assignments very valuable and it has helped become a better writer.
Practical exercises such as Memos and letters.
Writing Business memos.
Resume writing
What I found most valuable and helpful were the peer-review workshops. I received constructive feedback from the instructor as well as other classmates which made my letters stronger and better understood. I also found the interview workshop very helpful because I realized I need a lot to work on such as being able to talk clearly and use company terms.
The real world applications every lesson had was great. Sometimes in school, not everything you learn is applicable to many different things in life. However most lessons I found valuable and useful for the future.
She taught all needed elements to improve my writing, and she always answered questions.
I learned the right ways how to write business letters more efficient.
i valued how much emma knew about her class and subject. i also valued her patience and helpfulness to get us on the right track.
The instructor genuinely cared about teaching us and making sure we completely understood the material. She was very helpful and available to everyone. The material was very current. We spend a lot of time peer-editing, and our assignments related to real world situations.
I felt that Emily had a great understanding of the material and that she really wanted us as students to understand the material as well. She had many in-class workshops and discussions that helped me most. She also used videos and demonstrations that were very helpful.
I learned to get my information out in less word I can say it and to focus on the "you" approach in business.
I found that help on writing resumes and getting prepared for the job that were looking for was very useful and im glad that I was able to learn this information that i will be able to use throughout my professional life.
The entire course was helpful because we were constantly learning new things that could be applied to real life situations.
Working as a team. The teacher asking questions, having each student reply with their understanding of the how to phrase business communications. Emma always made herself available other than her office hours. Emma breaks down each part of an assignment and that helped me understand how to organize my thoughts and be able to complete the assignments.
It allowed me to explore my thoughts and ideas and put it in writing.
Improved my writing. Made it more clear and concise.
I found that if I ever needed help, Emily was always available through email or phone. When ever I emailed her she would respond in a timely manner. Also, we had other sources to get answers from.

She does great
She's done very well in teaching this class, very organized and willing to help so I can't think of anything she can do more to improve this class. She allows enough time for students to complete their task.
She goes a great job balancing the group work shops with the in class lectures.

Better outline of Class assignments.
I dont think emma needs to improve anything in her teaching skills. I like her class the way how it is. Just in the weekly assignmets scheduling can be arranged differently because i got confused for some weeks.
i very much enjoyed her class, and feel that she's already doing a great job that she should continue to teach Eng 209 the way she did during my Fall semester
Slow things down a bit especially in the beginning of the semester. I felt overwhelmed with all the new materials.
There was a research project at the end of the semester that caught me off guard and I was a little upset about it,but when I explained my nervousness about the project to Emily, she did her best to help me through the project. She made me feel a lot better about it and helped me succeed through it.

She is one of the best I have came across. She does group work which I feel is the best way of learning.

15. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
I think she a great teacher even though we was tough with all the writing assignments.
A+
excellent
A intelligent, passionate and inspiring instructor who I would recommend to everyone planning on entering the business world.
She knows,her stuff. she really helped me with my resume and it ended being very important when it came time for the interview.
I enjoyed this class very much!
Emily likes to see her students successful.
Intelligent
Emily WHite makes the class interesting by letting students engage in activities and class discussions. She provides many useful websites/tools to get further help.
Emily is a wonderful teacher. She cares about her students and helps make accommodations for those who need it. She is clearly experienced in the business writing field and is exceptional at breaking down chapters into lessons.
She is a good english teacher, very helpful.
I enjoyed her class. I would recommend my friends to take her class if she is teaching eng 209 or any other eng class in the future. This class has helped me be more confident is business writing and speaking infront of the class.
great, patient, and understanding teacher.
She is an exceptional teacher. She was my favorite professor, she stretched us and I learned a lot from her. Very organized, very current with her information and teaching style, she gives a real world information and tips. Her class is challenging, but I did become a better writer through it.
I think Emily shows tremendous enthusiasm when teaching. I really get the feeling she wants us to learn and take useful information away with us when we leave this class. I would take another class taught by Emily and I learned a lot about business writing that will help me be more successful throughout my academic and working career.
She has a good teaching style and cares a lot about helping her student in school and other future opportunities that come their way.
I feel that she expects a lot form her students which is not a bad thing because it motivated me to do well in her class. It also showed that she believes in the success of her students.
Good :)
I have learned the most from her about writing. I enjoyed this class and will recommend taking English from her.
Excellent! She is a great instructor and I would recommend this class to others.
Excellent instructor!!!

6. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
annotations
Learning to read by knowing what im reading about and what the point of the passage.
I found different ways of reading and understanding the subject that I am assigned to do. And also the skills that needs to be used to do my assignment.
Learning how to do annotations when taking notes really helped me ad it's an easier to study. Also the teacher having the passion to teach us and help us.
We talk about chapters in class and better our understanding with discussions and activities.
My reading lab
About how she explains the terms for the quizes and assignments.She understands us as well as a good listener.
breaking down and pointing out the different parts of a writing or passage
i now know how to read and enjoy it.instead of being so bored.
That it evaluate what skills I had in English and learning new ones.
it was great
Reading and learning what to look for when reading is very helpful. Details and supporting details me with what I am reading about.
I find that i actually can read a little better now. Before i started i could not understand any reading material now i can understand a bit more than i used to.
Notes.
We can look for definitions of words on a dictionary. We also have help or tools that we can use to better understand a topic.
I like myreading lab and also she took her time with each and very student and help us if we needed help
getting to learn and understand more effectivly about the different typs of writing and reading strigys
That the teacher was there helping everytime we needed her help. She would answer my emails very fast.
As English is my second language, this course is very helpful and valuable to me because it increases my vocabulary and comprehension. It increases my level confident and comprehension. I learned to be an effective and critical reader. Not just a passive reader but also an active reader, by identifying the main points of the passage. And identifying the author's facts and opinion.
The teacher Emma is the most helpful and understanding teacher that i have had in college. Because of her kindness i was comfortable enough to come to class regularly and ask questions when needed.

6. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
doing the speed reading program
The in-class activities helped me to be more talkative than i usually am.
I think the students made the course helpful and valuable because in the class we help eachother other and make sure we listen, and understand others responses.
It helped me to build a healthy guide for studying.
It taught me to be a much better and more efficient reader.
I liked that she had different types of quizes throughout the course because if you were not good at a particular style of quiz you had a chance to do good on other styles. I like that she utilized the textbook to the fullest instead of making you buy it and never having to open it.
Speed reading, study habit tips, how to pace myself from doing an activity.
I found the end of the class projects that she assigned us to be most helpful. I chose to do the Speeding Reading program and I feel as though I greatly benefited from it and as though my reading and comprehension skills greatly improved.
The most helpful thing I found about the course was talking with Emma after the class periods. I found her to be very helpful and encouraging, she really seemed to care about my education.
The course taught me how to read quicker and efficiently.
I liked how all the quizes were not all the same. She had different formats for all of them.

Overall it was satisfactory, if i had to ask for something more though, a few more reading assignments would work.
None.
dont change a thing!
i dont think she can, she did a fantastic job

Receive better equipment, seems as if the computer speakers have malfunctioned throughout the class time periodically, which results of a different activity for the day.

15. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
Good, helpful class for learning English 102 reading.
AWESOME! Emily does a good job helping her students and she teach her students well. She gives us clear examples and she wants us to make sure we understand.
she is the greatest!
she is a terrific professor. this was one of my favorite classes to go to, she was funny, energetic and really cares about her stydents
Very enthusiastic and fun. Seems to have a general interest in the progress of the students. Seems to know a lot about the subject of the course and many other subjects.
Fun and a very enthusiastic teacher, who seems to enjoy teaching and helping students strive to their full potential.
-- snipped --
From going through this course with her, I can honestly say that she values not only my learning, but my growth as a student and as an adult above all else. She was also very understanding when I was unable to turn in an assignment due to technical problems (legit ones) and made new due dates for me to get the assignments turned in on. I also had a trip to KY to visit a college that I was planning on going to; she let me turn in all my assignments and take my tests after I got back from my trip. this allowed me to focus on that college and the classes that I attended there.
Emily White is a great teacher. She discusses the materials thoroughly and creates unique ways to demonstrate them.
She was an enthusiastic teacher and very willing to help.

I really enjoyed this course. I enjoyed that there was always something new. Like making my own blog for the first time, taking vocabulary quizzes in a variety of ways, not just the same, old multiple choice. I feel that I can use the things I learned from this course and actually apply them in my everyday life.

4. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
The thing that I felt was most valuable for my ongoing education was learning how to do annotations. In college annotating readings, that I will receive in the future, is one of the best studying tools that I have learned.
I found Prof. White's use of videos to help increase how we understood the material.
Emily White is a great teacher. She makes learning very fun and interesting. This course really helped me on my comprehension skills and being able to understand what i read.
The ability to spot my own grammatical errors as well as other components in my writing was a great help.
I thought the forums were engaging and useful. The reading logs topics were also unique and interesting.
The most valuable skill I learned in this course was the growth of my ability to think critically about the information I am reading about; not only in my classes, but also free reading.
everything!
What I find most valuable and helpful about the course is the things that we are learning from the textbook, especially annotating.

12. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
-- snipped --
I feel that she doesn't need to chang e a thing.
This course offered up an incredibly heavy workload. I feel like less work might allow the students to focus more on the quality of their work, and less on the quantity of it.
Her course is wonderful. I wouldn't change a thing. I would actually encourage more teachers to take notes from her and would like to see her teach more different classes.
The only thing that riled up my nerves with this course was the activities involving groups. I felt as if some material said to be done in groups were unnecessary but overall, it did help me connect with my fellow classmates and open up. If I had to nitpick on certain improvements, it would have to be the the enforcement on tardiness of other students who distract the class and reiterate questions that have already been ask. These little things distract the class in a slightly significant way that concerns time taken away from our studies.
I would suggest a reading assignment of a nice book.

13. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
-- snipped --
In the beginning when I first read the syllabus I thought I was in over my head. As the semester moved forward I found that her amount of knowledge that she was shoving inside our brains, became exactly what I need to overcome my fear of an English class.
Shes a great professor, and has incredible knowledge on the subject.
She is an A+ teacher!! She makes us work hard and do a lot of work but she is well organized and makes sure we benefit from everything she teaches.
Professor Emily White was great in making herself available for those who needed extra help. She never fail to constantly remind us her office hours and the leeway she gave for those unable to make those hours. I personally was very grateful of that as well as her encouragement she gave in understanding the material in various diverse ways. From group work and class discussions, she was engaging when it came to the material and our own personal strengths and weakness in learning them. Overall, Emily white is an excellent professor when it concerns her profession and the academical needs of her students.
Excellent! She works hard to ensure her student's success, and seems to genuinely care for each individual student. Emily know how to make the lectures fun and instructive. I would recommend her class to any of my own friends.
that she is a great teacher to learn from because she explains difficult information through examples.
Very good
Shes a greta teacher. She knows how to keep teaching while having fun. She makes sure that we understand and if we dont then she lets us know when shes available so that we can have a conference of some sort to better understand whats going on in class.
Professor White is a very enthusiastic teacher, always willing to help out students.

Mahalo Nui Loa Emily, for being a great english teacher, and helping me improve my comprehension skills.
The only thing is, I feel like its important to remember that most students work, and have other classes. Please dont overload students with work. It is SO stressful for us.
Thank you so much Prof. White for all your help this semester. I appreciate you taking the time in giving me the chance to correct my essay with the aid of your helpful input.

4. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
What I found most helpful about ENG 209 is that it provides us with tools we can use when we go out applying for our career jobs and the other skills we need when looking for a job via resumes, recommendation letters etc.
We had many writing assignments and received feedback on our work. This helped me better my writing skills.
I learned that business writing is usually short and to the point.
I think that the teacher is a very knowledgeable person. She knows many things about business. I have learned many things from her!
the book
She is good in English especially me as a second lanuguage student through her comment in my papers it help me a lot. She encourage me how to proofread in the TLC when I mentioned that I am busy because I work two jobs and full time student. She give tools or site that helps my better paper such as the verse tenses...
We spend a lot time covering resumes and cover letters. I now feel confident to apply to jobs with my improved documents.
The fact that our assignments were based straight from the book allowed for lessons backed by text. This also encouraged me to keep up with my reading.
Material was new to most students in the class. Several students really needed the help with resumes and learning how to communicate in a professional business environment.
this course helped me understand the importance of writing efficient messages. it taught me that it's important to proofread everything because it could make or break the company.
The feedback we got from our fellow classmates was helpful. Emily White is easy to contact and quick to respond to any questions via e-mail. The detailed weekly schedules were also helpful, but could be modified to be a little more user friendly.
Writing a resume
A knowledgable instructor who was engaging and educational but strict with compliance and expectations. It was a casually structured environment. Ms. White has a strong presence and control of the classroom. Her guidance kept the discussion and class on tract and meaningful.
Having classmates and in instructor who could relate business writing and what we are learning in class through real world and on the job application. I also found writing chapter memos and summaries useful as a tool to ensure that students were prepared for class and understood the content. Therefore leading to a better in class discussion
All the internet resources such as smarthinking.com that are available to us as well as how she put all the information for homework and projects on Laulima.
Prof White makes herself very available for her students. She is open to receiving question via email, going to her office, or staying after class. Having a teacher who is available for questions makes it seem like she wants her students to do better, which then makes us want to do better.
It was very helpful for me to learn about resume. Although it was hard for me to write my own resume because that was my first resume in my life, I think i will be required to write my resume in the future when going to have a job; therefore I have enjoyed the most learning how to wrote resume in this class.

There's nothing really.
I don't have any comments on this.
I think she did a wonderful job. I really liked how she took time to talk about the chapter memos. It helped me retain more information about the book.
-- snipped --
She is awesome teacher even though she is first time in campus. I would say she is the best in English teacher.
Textbook was poorly organized and very repetitive. Only improvement I could see would be more writing assignments outside of the textbook.
she could maybe go through the writing projects more throuoghly, because some wasn't as clear as i expected it to be. some i didn't know what she expected from the assignments. other than that, it was great.

Less peer editing. How can someone who does not know any more than I do help me to become a better writer?

For me all writing projects such as memo or resume were the first time; therefore I didn't have any ideas how to write those writing when I was asked to do homework. If the instructor show me examples or explanations, it will be very helpful for me to do projects.

I learned a lot of her eventhough sometimes she doesn't understand my pronounciation, but she still willing to help me.

She is a great teacher. She's very knows the subject very well and always has an enthusiastic attitude toward teaching.

Emily White does a good job of helping students that need help by letting fellow classmates help those in need. The writing projects were fun to do, and the memos kept us on our toes.
Extremely intelligent, organized. Keeps the class on track.
Well prepared, articulate and intelligent. My time was well spent in her class. Ms. White delivered moderately technical content in an easy to understand format.
I enjoyed having Emily White as an instructor and I found her experience in the work field to be very helpful as far as real application goes. I enjoyed the anecdotes, videos and in class discussions because they enhanced the material in the text. I enjoyed the assignments and frequency and variety of them. This allowed us to touch upon various writing areas.
Very enthusiastic teacher that goes above and beyond and is very nice. However, her class has alot of homework.
I think Prof. White is a great teacher, I wish she taught ENG 210 so I could take that course with her as well.
I'm able to feel that she has many knowledge about business writing; therefore things that she taught me in class were very useful for me.
14. Other comments:
The curriculum of this class made us do assignments that I wasn't accustomed to doing and not in my comfort zone. Having to do them made me learn even more and be a better student for it.
I felt that I could've just done the class online with the book.
I would say she is good in doing Resume and cover letter. She is a good instructor.
More time in class to work on the final project would be helpful.
-- snipped --
The perfect balance of strictness, deadlines, compassion, knowledge, and communication. Great educator -- should be chair of the department or a dean of the college. Love her!!!!!!!!!!
Enjoyed the class and writing from a business stand point it is something that is very different
I hate english and writing but this semester has helped to improve my writing skills while also lessening the stress I have associated with writing.

it is very helpful in my reading comprehension.
when ever we need help she always ask her students if we have any questions we can contact her through email, or her cell phone.
not too many but it was challenging
I find that each word has its own importance, that they're not just words put together. That there are a certain word in order to connect sentences like transitions and a whole lot more.
she always is infomal on doining work and helpfull when you need help! she does a super job!of teaching! outstanding!
I find most valuable about the course is homework and over view of the chapter. It really helps a lot especially if a students find the chapter really difficult to understand. She review what's the most important and gives students a lot of time to finish the quizzes and especially the tests.
i found out the purpose of tone Emily White's class is great, I love it, she has the time to care about her student ans she's one of the teacher that really help me and she understand her students. I love classes like that and English 21 Emily White class is one of the class that I like.
the whole course was valuable and helpful. It made me become a better reader.
the ins and outs of all outlines that are needed for any english class
How to read better by finding main ideas and supporting details for the questions that are being asked. When i started this class, i had a few ideas on what it was like and towards the end, it turned out even better then i expected it to be. I learned many new things to help me out in other classes as well when it comes to studying and taking notes.
This course has made me more responsible as an individual. For example being on time with class and homework also. I feel more accomplished for myself.
Emily White teaches her students really well, right away, she will know when were not understanding the work and try to explain it even more better for us to understand it better.
The participation.
I found that the smallest things are the most important part of learning. The main ideas, summary, central idea, controlling point, greatly affected my reading and it made reading easier.
She Taught How To Write And Do Essays.
I felt that the exercises that we did during class were very helpful in understanding the work that needed to be completed. Everything that we learned during the course will be most valuable in the future while continuing to read and further extending my knowledge from the techniques we learned in this course.
everything i loved how everything was organized. I like how she was would give us our l=weekly assignments on laulima.
Great class and teacher.Very useful to students who want to improve their English skills.
everything that she taught to us was all helpful and valuable. it made feel more confident on my reading skills. The vocabulary lists is awesome. it is a big help for my other courses.
The book was really helpful. Like Facts/ opinions, vocab, supporting details, main idea, etc.
.
What I find most valuable is that I need to read very careful about the story and be able to look for important words that Idont understand. Other thing to help me is that I have to review over what we have studied in class or notes.
I think the most valuable and helpful about the course is with every chapter we did. Our professor is a really good teacher, she makes the chapter easy for us with great examples so we understand more and make us better readers.
emily would help us alot in class.. she would always send emails or talk to us and making sure that we can be our best. it is very easy to fall out of class but she makes class fun and interesting.
The most valuable thing I found in this course was basically learning everything we had to learn. I found us working in groups really helpful because we shared our own opinions on the work. No one was right or wrong. We never judged each other.
Professor White, takes time to go over everything we learn and she makes sure that we fully understand it. She gives us many helpful examples that makes it easier for the class to learn. I've learned so much i this course and I'm glad to have Professor White as my teacher.
Reading is so important in our everyday life. That you could a lot of information from reading.
The discussions we have.
She allows us a student to work in groups to understand the problem on the topic.
The instructor had a lot of patience and presented excellent study guides to all her lectures.
I have learned many useful lessons in this English 21 class. I learned how to read the passages right way and find what I need in it quickly. This class helps me to understand more when I read. i also learned many vocabulary.
The most valuable and helpful about this course is that she discuss in our class and give us some time to study.

no need im sure she improved well for this class
She's really a great teacher, very lively and open minded. I just hope that she'd be like that for the rest of her teaching years.
I think her teaching course is really great. I can't find any thing that she has to improve on. She's very intellectual and she really knows what she's talking about. She also gives examples for students who has a hard time understanding the course or the assignment. She gives her full capabilities of teaching. She never missed a class and therefore, she really loves her job, especially when her students are doing good academically in her class.

Even though her homework is a little to easy, you can actually learn from them because she assignes you an assignment then when it comes to class, we will go over the chapter and she will explain it alot better. Its fun doing group discussion and working together.
A very good and intelligent person that knows what she is talking about.
She's a real good teacher.
outstanding :]
She is very helpful. She loves to give help and she loves to communicate with people who's having a hard time dealing with anything school or personal stuff. I'm glad I took Eng 21 with her. I learned so much.

19. If you were teaching this course: a. What would you do to improve it? b. What would you change?
I don't think i would want to improve it or change anything to this class.
If I were teaching the class the only thing different I would do to try to improve the course would be to find a broad range of class and home activities to engage the students more deeply in the Vocabulary portion of the class. It wasn't unsatisfactory at all but that is the only portion where students did not seem fully engaged and interested. I would not change anything in this course It was challenging in the best aspect possible. It challenged you but it did not break you down and push you over your limits. Emma White was a great English teacher and I will be suggesting her and the course to future students. Mahalo.
Not much was needed to be improved. I honestly didn't enjoying attending the class because of a particular student who always had an opion she had no problem expressing. Her constant comments really took away from the learning and honestly annoyed the students to the point of not wanting to be in the class so they would not have to deal with hearing her. The teaching itself was very encouraging, Mrs. White was clear on her subject matter and used different types of examples to help explain each topic.
I actually like the way Miss Whie taught it. I think that I would use her methods of teaching...its always fun and interesting. Theres always something new to learn at every class.
nothing
I felt Emma White did a great job, she made me want to better myself. She made me think about what i was reading.
This course was good.
20. What do you think of the teacher and his/her teaching methods?
This class was very good, i would recommend Emma to any of my friends. If one of us didn't do well on a test, she would give us the chance to make it up. She gave us information and printed it for us so that she could make our assignments easy for us to understand.
Emma White is a wonderful teacher who truly exhibits her passion for teaching by engaging with the students and going the extra mile to confirm that her students understand what they are learning. She has great teaching methods that are easily absorbed into the minds of her students.
Mrs. Whites teaching methods are good. She is a very patient person when she explains things.
I think that Miss White works well with her students, and that her teaching methods are exellent. She is always willing to give help whenever shes needed.
I really enjoyed Emma White as an instructor
I feel she challenged us to seek a higher learning. I loved it! She pushed us to do better not just for a good grade but for ourselves.
She is a good teacher.
21. Has he/she contributed to your general knowledge or to learning job skills?
She did contribute to my general knowledge or to learning job skills, she taught me so much things that i definitley will use in the future.
Emma White has definitely taught me things that I will be able to apply to my daily life and job skills, more importantly I will be able to remember these skills and knowledge for many years to come.
Yes, her class was a very big help especially within my other classes.
I believe that Miss White has influenced not only myself, but the rest of the class in a very positive way. I am more organized now, and find that I try to turn things in on time.
Yes she has
She has given us tools that I feel can better the skills I have.
Yes.

Emma White was by far one of the best instructors I have been taught by. She has made my first year into college a more than pleasant one. Thank you for offering Emma White at The Hawaii Community College!
Awesome class, Would of enjoyed it more/ attended more if students would understand there constant talking takes away from my education. -Thank you Mrs. White for everything!
Miss White is doing a great job. I always look forward to her class. Hopefully this won't be the last I work with her. The course would've been harder if not for her help and understanding. Thanks.
I just want to say thank you very much and that I have enjoyed this class.
Good course.

I really enjoyed this class and the way Emily taught it. I would recommend this course and instructor to anyone who needs improvement on their reading and vocabulary skills.
SHE IS THE BEST!
Emily White, was always willing to help students with their assignments or concepts that they may not have understood. Up until this past semester I didn't like english because I didn't do well at it. She helped change how I feel about english, and helped me to enjoy this subject alot more. I'm glad I had the opportunity to have her as a superior teacher!
she's a very good teacher
