31. How did the instructor show concern for students?
meetings for the final essay.
Helped every student out reminding all of us we had to complete our assignments by email majority of time.
She would show her concern for students by actively ask questions if the students understood the material being taught. She would also remind students about assignments that are due and work that needs to be studied. She is clear on given assignments and making sure that students got it.
She is always willing to help students to achieve success in this course.
She gives extra credit work and give the students more time to revise and complete their work to improve on their grades. She also makes time to meet with students individually when they need extra help.
she allowed us to revise our essays for a better grade.
Although I know she's very busy, she always makes time to respond and help us. There was never a time when I called and she didn't respond and for that, I remain grateful. I think she's awesome!!!! Thank You Ms. Chang Aloha!!
through her teaching
32. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
good use of class time
Easy to understand
I liked how she would go over materials before quiz', test and if we understood the subject.
I have nothing negative about her course or her teachings. I give any teacher credit to teach in front of students. I like how she assign topics for us to choose, especially topics relating to local issues. I like how she makes us use the text book and exercise the examples given, even though some of the students don't like it. She also gives examples on the board/T.V. for those students that are visual learners.
She is a very nice and friendly teacher.
I like the way she prepare us for quizzes and exams. She thoroughly go over everything with us, and she test us exactly on the same materials that we discuss, "No surprises."
she gave alot of examples.
I like her constant reviews when I didn't understand something...
she mostly read from the book. didnt get to much teaching but what was in the book.
33. What else would you like to say about this instructor/course?
Great teacher and good class even though it was 2+ hours.
I would appreciate it if she would get back to my emails in a timely manner, I understand that we are all busy but it would have been nice if she responded to my emails as I mentioned in a timely manner.
I would like to suggests that maybe more group activities in class. perhaps relating topic class can talk about and share their ideas. Maybe take small trips, conference meetings, or movies and write about the topic or experience learned from it. small suggestions that I thought would be helpful. But over-all I thought her class was awesome and her teachings was great.
This course is important to learn how to write effectively.
I like her teaching style. She's not mean or strict, and she very easy to talk to.
This cousre was fun and she was fun too.
Mahalo for teaching and making me a better writer...
nothing
