13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
Teacher was credible.
I really like the teaching style of Mr. A. I really liked the class interactive learning.
I really liked that the course was rather straight forward with lessons and assignments.
I liked how we had reasonable time to knish our essays.
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!!)
The writing assignments were challenging yet brought out the best in me
I liked this class a lot
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 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 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.
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 learned a lot about college writing and I feel like i am all in all a better writer now.
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.
I liked the freedom I had when choosing topics for my essays.
I enjoyed the class interaction activities, and Mr. A's teaching methods really made me enjoy this English class.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Na, no improvements.
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.
No
No
Nope.
Lessen the journal to 1 page a day.
Maybe a few more reminders on homework assignments, other then that the course was very well put together.
hmm..more time on essays
Good instructor no improvements needed.

I will recommend Mr. A to any student that wants to become a better writer and willing to work hard.

I felt at ease in his class and had fun while I was learning "Go Packers"
It was clear to me that Mr. A was genuinely passionate about the subject, which reflected in his teaching and made me enjoy class.
