5. To complete this course successfully, how many hours each week would a typical student devote to course work outside of class?
I think it is hard to say. It really depends on how hard the student worked on their paper. I wanted to get a good grade so I was always spending a good amount of time outside of class working on my work but I don't have an exact time amount.
I would say around 4-5 hours a week, working on each essay would typical be the amount of time needed in order to be successful in this class. With the essays you will really want to spend a lot of time on them, because if you don't you probably wont get the grade you may want.
I would say a person should spend up to 12hours a week working on their papers for English to make sure that they get the best draft that they can.
About 3 hours. (1 1/2 HW hours per class session)
I would devote 3 hours or more working on homework to complete this course successfully

i spend a an hour or so of my free time to work on any homework or any essays that have been assigned.

6. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
I learned a lot in this class. I feel that the writing techniques that Neil though us were very helpful. I used to think I was a horrible writer but now I am much more confident in my work. Also the text book that he created was a very helpful took that I will still use in the future.
I found the lectures and the insights to essays helpful. The little discussions to clarify the prompt more thoroughly helped a lot.
I liked how the papers started small then became more involved so that the students became comfortable with writing essays, especially if it has been a long time since they had to write one.
I found that coming to each class is valuable because thats when I'm engaging in the subject and I understand what I'm learning. I also found that communicating with the teacher helped me a lot in learning things I didn't understand.
I really learned how to get all my thoughts onto the paper when writing essays.
Learning MLA, but it's more of self learning type of class. You need to learn a lot on your own in this class.
Learning how to write essays better, with more details and better flow was extremely helpful.
The most helpful thing about this course is learning how to write papers and citing a source correctly.
Learning how to write an essay was extremely helpful and most valuable.
this class really helped me learn how to write a college level paper and how to improve my writing. the book he made was very useful and explained each topic well
i learn a lot. more than i have in highschool english.
I found that class time spent explaining and expanding on topic ideas and open class discussion to be the most helpful. Hearing a multitude of opinions and the thoughts of other class mates helped to expand my own thinking. Sometimes I may understand an idea but don't know how to articulate and Neil has a way of drawing it out of a student and making a student understand something on their own terms, instead of just giving a student the answer. This class has taught me to be a better writer overall by improving the way I think about topics and focusing on the key element, not minor details that can cloud an essay.
having feed back from others. And adding things that are needed to make the essay better.
the skills needed to organize thoughts, and Mr. Stotts kept the class engaged.
He understood what a lot of people went through
The passion Mr. Stotts has for english and teaching is very inspiring and helps get his students into learning and feeling good in a subject, even though some are weak in it, like myself.
EVERYTHING!! Neil Stotts does not overwhelm you with paperwork. He offers endless amount of help and encouragement to succeed. He made learning fun and wanting to learn more. He related to his students and was very knowledgable. He never hesitated to share his growth as an English teacher. I looked forward to each class session excited to see what was in store. This methods of learning/teaching made this class a success! i would definitely take another class as Neil Stotts as the instructor. My time in this class was well worth every priceless minute.
The teacher always explains why we need certain punctuations in places and also his course packet is very helpful.
It taught me to think more and rethink almost everything before putting it in the essay(s).
Each essay opportunity.
Most valuable and helpful is how simple he makes the assignments are but they are still difficult. also the group work helps with perfecting my papers without having to show him.
The open discussions with the entire class. It help getting input from other students. This helped when I was stuck on my topic.
I was able to formulate and organized my thoughts using the steps Mr. Stotts thought us.
The group dicussions which includes peer reviews and suggestions. Being able to do drafts. Also, his excellent examples and explanations for better understanding. And the opportunity to meet with him one on one in his office.
Class discussions; They were interesting and engaging. Every discussion was funny and blew my mind. Many other students would agree.
The amount of essays that we wrote. I really learned a lot from the different subjects.
Looking in myself to find greats stories and have them come to life on paper.
This was my most enjoyable English class ever.
The teaching methodology is consistent and efficient. At the end of the semester, I can realize how the learning process was built. I feel more knowledgeable and confidente in writing compositions. The professor is very clear on the points he makes, provides good class material, and he is able to work in the individuals writing characterístics of each student.
Neil is such a great teacher. I can honestly say that I learned more in this semester course than I have ever learned about writing in the past. He encourages everyones ideas. He works to help everyone the best he can. You can tell that he cares. He also has a great sense of humor that keeps me motivated and engaged.
Professor Stotts group work and class discussions on the assignments and our skills. I also found his love for teaching and helping students extremely valuable
Stotts was available to give help and clarify instructions when needed and gave good constructive criticism
the book that had the things you really needed to know. it was very helpful on so many levels.
very opinion based. and fair grading system. every student has an equal oppurtunity
I found that doing drafts and outlines continuously, our papers will come out great.
What I found most helpful was the fact that mr. Stotts was always there to help us improve our writing skills. He was extremely encouraging and pushed us to become amazing writers.
I found that the drafting really did improve my final papers. Going from a raw rough draft to the final is a process that will be really useful for my future papers. Please keep up the drafting. Also, encouraging students to engage in the class and ask questions really made a huge impact in how we all related to each other and got to see different perspectives and clear up questions that everyone may have had. Keep being an awesome teacher!
I found my weaknesses in this English 100 course, but was able to embrace and grow from it to help me become a better writer and understand the English subject in general. I've made my necessary improvements so I can be productive and efficient in my life.
the group work, and the opened minded aspect
I really thought my teacher was helpful, I felt confortable asking him questions. He really helped me think about my first drafts, and refine them.
The help Stotts gave

Willing to help.
Neil is very fair with grading and finds time to help all of the students in his class.
how Stotts explains assignments and engages us the students to come up with great ideas with the class
Mr.Stotts' enthusiasm and helpfulnes.
The amount of time that we had to complete our work because the class days were well spaced out.
The ability to write in a way that expressed me and wasn't just informational. This course taught me and helped me master my own writing. It also exposed my writing style and who I am as a writer.
The correct steps to developing and formulating a good essay (i.e. outline, lightning draft, second draft, final); how to look at the underlying meanings and behaviors of things; the correct way to use quotations and paraphrasing
this course has helped me better unsderstand the baisic consepts and techniques on creating and drafting a well written essay.
The essay writing skills. i understand it will be important for college and im glad ive got an early start on it.
That Mr. Stotts asks intriguing questions and answers your questions, too. This question/answer thing really helps keep the class moving forward. :)

Gave me a better sense of writing. Also helped me understand and realize a lot more about language(s). Language is an awesome thing and you should always look to further your knowledge in it.
The one major thing that I learned from this course is how to think critically. Mr. Stotts taught me how to really think about the fine details in developing my paper.
This course was very fun and enjoyable. I think that one of the most helpful things about this course was that it enhanced my writing abilities.
I found that learning how to write a college essay and the steps it took in completing a final draft will help me in the future to writing other college essays.
I found composing essays valuable and helpful
I liked that each class we revised our papers to make them better. That helped me focus on what I needed to fix and learn how to be a better writer.
I learned how to add voice to my paper and know exactly who my audience is. Instead of writing generic high school papers, I learned how to write college level essays.
The changed way of thinking is definitely the most valuable thing I will take away. Mr. Stotts encourages us to look deeper into things and think about the hidden meanings. It makes you see the world on a whole new level. It was also very helpful when we talked with each other in groups. It made ideas flow and really helped when it came time to write. I also liked getting into the practice of writing drafts. Usually I would just do one and done. Now, I appreciate the other drafts a lot more. They really do help make your paper better.
There were some difficult essays we had to write which required us to use a lot of our brain power.
learning how to write with commentary because it makes my writing better.
It taught me how to write essays that are actually enjoyable to read and not strictly information.

14. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
I am not really sure, I liked the course the way that it is.
Pick our own groups to work with.
Maybe by grading some of the early drafts to make sure students are on the right track.
Neil Stotts can improve teaching this course by using laulima or a computer source to let student know what to do and to look at our grade. I feel that would be very helpful.
I feel he does a great job at everything going on.
Instruct better, kind of go step-by-step
I think he can improve by spending equal amounts of time with each student, during each class time.
Neil Stotts can improve the teaching of this course by updating his students more on Laulima.
I think the way he is teaching now is very good. He might be able to improve if he could spend equal amount of time with each group in the class during the class period.
maybe spending less time and getting to each group in one class period. visit groups that wanted to see him again after seeing all groups
offer more one on one time besides office hours
An improvement could be made by either minimizing group work or setting a standard to what should be accomplished, and then a class discussion at the end to talk about what we discovered in our group. Group work tends to lead to gossip and students are a afraid or just plain don't know how to give good feedback. If there was more structure, like a list of things to accomplish while in groups, I think students would gain more instead of waiting around until the teacher comes to their group to help them out.
Could use smart thinking. and get more peoples opinions about what were writhing about.
When making groups split them up for the students.
Nothing, the course is great!
Neil Stotts was an excellent instructor and his course was very well organized and manageable. Never overwhelming.
Not much, I enjoyed his class thoroughly and the content of the class is well thought out.
I don't think he needs any improvement.
I think the course packet could be updated because it was confusing sometimes reading the course packet explaining an essay's requirements then he would change them.
he doesn't need to improve because it is perfect
I enjoy the way he taught this class. I have no suggestions for improvement.
It's perfect the way it is.
N/A, It was awesome.
More time for peer reviews on essays. They really helped me see where I was in my essays, and they kept me on track.
Less explaining more examples.
I wish the class was longer than just the hour and 15 minutes. I enjoy class so much and I learn tons. I just wish we had more time to disuss.
A little more explanation of his idea of a good paper. Also maybe more practice of some kind to show what we should improve on in our writing.
I dunno... the culture essay was the most difficult for me to write but was my highest scored paper.
it was all good.
Not much to say here. for an english class I would say he makes it as fun as possible.
He doesn't need any improveements.
I enjoyed his class and don't really think it needs improvement.
Keep being Neil Stotts:) Awesome teacher!
He's a very good teacher and pushes students to reach their fullest potential, but maybe he can be a little less strict when it comes to how he wants the work structured. Everyone's knowledge of vocabulary is not as strong as his is and so I think he needs to be flexible when it comes down to the essays.
nothing hes awesome
I wish the classes were longer so more people would have time to talk to him one on one. Other then that, I really dont think anything could be better. I really enjoyed this class!
Nothing, he does great work
Grade a little easier, it's pretty tough.
I don't know it seems pretty good.
From his lectures to the assignments he gives out, practically everything about his class made him my all time favorite English teacher. I think the class has nothing to improve on.
Maybe give us more time to turn in assignments
I would like him to have more office hours but his in class discussions covered most of my questions.
N/A
For Neil I would say, don't tell us the papers only get easier after a particular one because it was actually a lot harder for me. I feel like the false hope that was set up through that statement made me discouraged because I thought I was just dumb because these papers are suppose to be easier.
Try to answer emails; discuss with everyone on their topics because those who are left out may not be doing the essay correctly
keep it the same
to be honest i cant think of anything
I really like the class as-is. ^_^
none.
Maybe teach the students more how to edit other papers and give good feedback to one another.
The class did well the way he ran it. Keep the course the same.
I think that the course is already pretty good. It is really fun and many of the assignments and requirements are pretty well explained. One thing that he could do to improve his course is to put a huge emphasis revisions and that they do enough revisions so they do not get zeros on their paper.
I think that he could do some hands on things with the students to help them learn and retain the information.
Mr. Stotts was an excellent instructor
Sometimes our papers felt rushed, but that's probably because of the limited time we had. I think he could spend more time helping all the students with their revisions.
Mr. Stotts can improve the teaching of this course by having the class more engaged, because sometimes the class seemed bored or confused.
Sometimes, Mr. Stotts is unable to go around and talk to every discussion group. I really enjoy his feedback and comments so when he doesn't come around it sucks. The class would be improved if he could make it around to every group because the students really appreciate his help. However, this is just a minor improvement.
Talking to us one on one more. Giving class time to all students instead of just some.
Editing our all our papers before we turn it in for a real grade.
Do other short assignments to help us prepare for our big essays
Maybe discuss further how papers will be graded or give chances for revision.
He can improve by trying to teach us more on grammar, sentence structure, works cited, etc. because I am still unclear of those things. He could also improve this course by meeting with each of us after each essay and tell us what we can do to improve our writings because instead of getting better at writing I think I am getting worse by the grades I am getting.
15. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
He is great teacher that I will recommend to other students.
Stotts is a very smart guy. He knows what he's talking about and I feel more knowledgeable after leaving his class each time.The way we are pushed to think in is class in regards to the essays we have to write, it makes english and writing seem just a tad bit more enjoyable.
He is very knowledgable about a lot of topics, he shows his love for teaching English and he makes it an interesting class. I really enjoyed him as a teacher and have recommended him to friends who still need to take English 100.
Good teacher.
My overall evalution of Neil Stotts is that he is a good instructor. He takes his work very serious and I could always ask for help and he would always try in his best way to make me understand.

Neil is a knowledgeable and approachable teacher that is interested and wants students to improve their writing. I feel more comfortable in a classroom when I can relate to a teacher and when I feel that I am not just another faceless essay or student drone. When the teacher is actually interested in the material they are teaching, I am more invested in the work I produce.
overall i think that he did a great job and everything.
Awesome teacher, knowledgeable, and inspirational.
Great course, great lectures, and a great teacher.

Great teacher with a good sense of humor.
That his an excellent and humorous teacher. It was fun being in his class.
This was the best english class I've ever taken. Mr. Stotts makes it easy to understand, get thoughts and creative juices flowing, and inspires you with each discussion. Although our class was easily diverse and everyone applied themselves, there's no challenge this teacher can't handle. I'm thankful I had him as an english teacher.
He made english (My least favorite subject) very enjoyable to the point whereI would get excited for the class.
funny, understanding, an all around good teacher.
Excellent teacher who takes the time to thoroughly explain instructions, then asks if anyone has questions to be sure everyone understands. Ourstanding

hands down awesome!!! best english teacher ever...
He is very open and very friendly. He also seems to like the Socratic method a lot. I really appreciate his efforts to get the class involved and his questions/answers really help with the actual essay-writing.
very friendly and good teacher. could be a part time comedian.
on a scale of 1 to 10. I give him a 9. Great teacher. I could see the passion he has for his job and tries to share it. Also was really cool but made sure we did what was asked of us.

16. Other comments:
I hope I achieve a passing grade in his class :)
I sincerely enjoyed this course and could see the progression in my writing abilities as the semester went on. I am glad I took this course with Mr. Stotts!
N/A
I am a returning student and chose to take one class to see if I could handle going back to school, not only did his teaching challenge my own thought process he inspired me to continue with my education. English 100 was a class I dropped 2 times 20 years prior, his clear teaching allowed who ever showed up to succeed.
I believe that the instructor is what makes the course...
He's a great teacher and i've learned a lot. I have seen a big improvement on my writing skills. before i had a very hard time writing but now it's not that hard.
Great class. Looking forward to having more classes taught by Neil Stotts.

I am tried of doing English for the last three semester im taking a break, but if i was still taking English i would take him again.
My favorite class. Only two days a week is not enough. If im ever absent or tardy, I feel as if I missed the beginning of a good movie.

I enjoy his class.
He should really answer his e-mails. I stopped e-mailing him because he would not get back to me. So I felt I couldn't get the help I needed out of school.
