13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I liked that Mr. A saw what we needed to improve in our writing and helped us get the extra infraction we need to become better writers. He is a truly inspirational teacher, and you could see that he really wants to be in the classroom teaching; he is not there just because he needs a job, he is there to educate people and help student succeed in collage and in life in general.
I liked this class a lot
I like that I got to meet awesome new people and made some connections. I liked that we did a handful of group work. I like that upon completion of essay we received a treat. I also like the humor. You're a pretty funny guy Mr. A.
I enjoyed the class interaction activities, and Mr. A's teaching methods really made me enjoy this English class.
I really like the teaching style of Mr. A. I really liked the class interactive learning.
I learned a lot about college writing and I feel like i am all in all a better writer now.
The Peer review, and reading essays was really helpful for me to get ideas and help me improve my writing. The reading was a helpful guide for me to look at when doing essays on how I am able to structure and state opinions and facts properly.
I liked how we had reasonable time to knish our essays.
the peer editing was a great help
I learned a lot about writing and how to put a essay together in many ways and how to use MLA format.
The writing assignments were challenging yet brought out the best in me
I loved the class structure- the lectures were short and informative, there were plenty of hands on activities and I was able to get to know my classmates through assignments, activities and group discussions. The assignments were clear and interesting. Mr. A was easily accessible and willing to help or answer questions (and he was actually helpful too!!)
I really like that I was able to get back in touch with my writing skills. For a long time I hadn't used my brain to focus on writing especially keeping a journal. Along the way I improved my writing and hope to continue increase my skills.
Teacher was credible.
I really liked that the course was rather straight forward with lessons and assignments.
I liked the freedom I had when choosing topics for my essays.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Nope.
No
Lessen the journal to 1 page a day.
Na, no improvements.
Maybe a few more reminders on homework assignments, other then that the course was very well put together.
No
hmm..more time on essays
Good instructor no improvements needed.
I think the course it fine as it is, though learning about the differences between similar words would have been best done near the beginning of the course.
