Great teaching style.
The way amanda prepared us on how to write correctly with exercises and assignments.
I like the fact that Mrs. Davis gives us extensions on our assignments. I really appreciate that a lot!
this class is fun and i learned so much
What I liked about retaking the English 19 course I was able to understand the class work and working in the Real Skills book the second time around. And I was able to stay on top of my home work and not miss anything. Working together with other class mates.
I like how she put us in groups to discuss our work that was assigned.It helped me to see mistakes as a editor. When i understood the concept i used what i learned as a tool when it came down to the work.Thank you Amanda Davis
What i liked about this course is that Amanda Davis is an excellent teacher. She really knows how to get her point across when teaching us on the assignments and activities. If we did not understand something, she would keep going over it until it finally clicks in our brain and we understand it
Amanda Davis has to be the best teacher I have had at any community college that i have been to. She was kind caring and I would recommend anyone to take her class.I was able to go from Eng19 and place into Eng100 after taking a semester with her as a teacher.I hated English until I took a Class with her. All of the activities projects assignment, ect went perfect with this class
I learned a lot about writing styles and right grammar.
