4. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
I learned a lot about grammar; things like using punctuations, writing style, etc. Also on things I thought were correct are actually wrong, which she corrected me on.
What I found valuable and helpful was that I learned to become a better writer.
She was always available when I needed her. She helped me and really made me realized that I liked english.
feedback from my fellow students
The writing helped me make more sence when writing and to brush up on my writing skills
Marnie is a great teacher and she replies back as soon as possible, which is great because I would be lost and not know what I would be doing. She made English 100 not so bad.
The instructor would allow students to ask questions freely on essay assignments which proved to be helpful for finals.
The thing that I valued was we could write about anything in our journal and trust that she wouldn't read what we wrote made it more real. I could express myself and not worry who was gonna read it. During journal checks we would show her our journals and as long as our pages are filled with the number of pages we should be at, we get points for doing it. That made it even better, because in my past English classes during our journal entry I wouldn't put personal things in it and I only filled the amount required. In the end of the semester the teachers would collect our journals to read it. Were as in Mrs. Masuda's our journals was always in our hands. I wrote so much pages. I loved it because I could be real and not worry about others reading it unless I wanted to show others.
I find all the essays helpful to me in this course. I learned a lot from all the different type of essays I wrote and the things I learned from our instructor.
I really liked how we were able to write about things we were interested in, and things we could relate too.
that mrs masuda knows what she is doing. shes hardcore and i liked it because it kept me busy.
Being that I haven't been in school for awhile. Professor Masuda did a great job getting me back into writing well.
The teachings about the different writing styles.
just a very good teacher and always very helpful.
What I found most valuable and helpful was that there was many different writting assignments which let me get a lot more practice at my writing skills.
We were aloud to use are imaginations and not always focus on boring structures of writing.

12. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
Maybe to make things more interesting rather than doing essay after essay. Something hands on would be fun to do to take a little break from doing multiple essays after the other.
Nothing really, I think she did a good job.
I dont think she needs to improved i learned the most in her class this semester.
more student professor interaction, less reliance on peer reviews for direction.
She's doing great
She's doing an excellent job.
Well, our instructor doesn't need to improve her teaching because she already have the best teaching skills.
Nothing, she taught very well.
I liked it how it was. No change.
The instuctor can improve the teaching of this course by maybe improving on the way homework was givin out.
Just be a little more harder on the grading process. Maybe look at our papers more thoroughly.
13. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
The instructor has a great personality. I'm glad she didn't force anyone to present in front of the class every time. Her humor made the class fun and entertaining. She made assignments to be less stressful any chance she could. She's an overall great person and a great teacher.
She's a very cool teacher and she is very friendly. She knows what shes talking about. She never made me feel pressure or anything. Shes easy going.
great teacher, and great teaching methods
good, masuda has a passion for the subject and a clear idea for what she is trying to accomplish with her students.
that she is a great english teacher and I would definately recommend her to anyone who asks me "who is a good english 100 teacher?"
Excellent
A-
I love her was of teaching. In the future if she teaches higher English classes I would definitely take her class.
This instructor is very organized and she gave a lot of chances to students who misses a lot of works; for them to catch up. She is available anytime and students are always free to contact her.
Mrs.Masuda is an all around good teacher.
awesome.
I enjoyed Professor Masuda. Great job.
She is a marvelous instructor! Very Helpful.
Extremely helpful and insightful
I thought the instuctor was very nice. She gave us a lot of help when we needed it and was able to answer all of our question when asked.
It was a very enjoyable class.She made English fun for me.
14. My overall evaluation of this course is...
The course was a bit boring because there wasn't much of a variety of assignments; it was essay after essay. There should have been one or two other type of assignment. Although the essay subjects were good to write about.
This class was a good class. It taught me how to write better, and how to write where you can like paint a picture in someones head so that they can imagine and see you paper more in a descriptive way.
I loved it..
good, this course touches on all the subjects needed at this level to empower students to write confidently at the basic college level.
good
that it taught me to be creative and descriptive in my writing.
Excellent
A
This is my second time taking English 100. I dropped out last semester for medical reasons. I'm glad I had her as a teacher.
This course was a great help in my education because I've learned so much things. Overall, I couldnt imagine I could do all the essays in this course because I thought it was hard. I found this course challenging and very helpful at the same time.
I liked this class, and it wasnt as hard as i thought it would be.
Great course.
Very educational.
I like the course and would recommend it.
This course was very great. it was a writing intense course so having to write so many papers gave me a great amount of practice on my writing skills and also gave me the opportunity to write on different topics i havent written about before.
I like English 100. It allowed me to enjoy writing (which I use to not enjoy, because I thought it was boring).

4. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
This teacher is amazing. A+ quality. The best of the best and you know it...
i loved this class because i was able to write what i wanted and i didnt need to worry about my work being judged.
i liked the way the instructor gave us time to write
I liked the final project. It was very free and it let me be creative.
The instrcutor was very helpful in making sure that the class understood the lectures and gained valuable information about literature. I now have an idea on how to write poetry and short stories and how to create powerful imagery and depth within my writing. I didnt write as much before I cam into this class. She is an awesome teacher and I would definetly recommend her to other students who are interested in creative writing.
i know that marnie takes intrest in our progress because she wants to see all the drafts and likes for us to read our pieces outloud. She is continually encouraging.
FREEDOM!!!!!!!!!
I found the level of respect very valuable, and the fact that as each day passed we all as a class got more comfortable with reading to eachother. I have found the truth in my writings, just by discovering my writing voice
being instroduced to writing about different formulations of writing techniques.
i learned how to free write and express my feelings through writing
It was good to share aloud in class.

12. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
there is no way she could improve. She is the defi9nition of perfection.
i honestly dont think that anything should be changed because this class was fun and i actually learned how to be a good writer.
more time to read other authors
More specific due dates.
I think the instructor should bring some of her own original work to class to share. It will show the class how great of a reader she is and provide her with some feedback to help with future pieces.
Marnie is great, she knows alot about writing and she's doing a great job.
Have the classroom be more fung shui
I believe that the teacher did an excellent job, and I am sad that the semester is over. Hopefully in the future there will be another class that she teaches that I will be able to participate in.
mixing in different types of poetry.
making some group projects and more hands on things
Teach a little more about writing styles.
13. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
Toasty
:0D loved this teacher...shes AWESOME!!!
very good
I liked her teaching style. Only thing is she could have been more organized. I had a hard time figuring out which days things were due.
Awesome! Continute to teach this class. You inspire young people to create such wonderful works of art that will give them insight into the future.
She has a perceptions of writing that broke down walls abour writing that i never knew existed. i love to write now.
shes the bees knees
This teacher was very helpful, and never critisized our pieces. She never told us that our style was wrong, and she is a very very friendly person. Her experience in writing has turned her into a great teacher, and her teaching skills are turning all of her students into great writers.
very well in her approach in conveying different writing styles.
shes the best eng teacher in the world
She was enthusiastic about motivating everyone to write. Very opininated, which may be a good thing. But overall she seemed to be very encouraging to everyone.
14. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Crispy
great course i went in trying to fill a requirement for school and came out wanting to write more and more!
very good
Fun, creative, and open. It really did encourage creative writing without the worries of grammer and mechanics.
Very interesting and creative course. It opens up your mind to new ideas and shows a different side that you never knew you had.
i really enjoyed this course, much so that i am considering majoring in journalism or english. Its really fun and everyone gets along in class, students and teacher.
buttery
I enjoyed this course 110% more than I enjoyed my writing composition class. No more frustrating minimum words, or grammar rules. The creativity and personal voice makes bending the standar rules of grammar legit, and if I could take this class again, and again, and again....I would without hesitation.
it allowed me to develop and speculate on what i was writing about
thank you for teaching
I had fun. It was often engaging, and humorful.
