17. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
more direct with what he wants.
If you can even the amount of notes to visual demonstrations or clips, students would be able to focus longer.
nothing
Giving an example of what a paper should look like, would help with amount of conetent required for each assignment.
Less talking.
I would like if for the reflection papers if there was a way to watch the movies online. That would be a lot easier especially if your not on the island.
great job!

24. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
less writing
It's just fine the way it is.
it helped me improve my reading with all the reading we had to do for this class, as this class is a writing intensive it improved my writing and the way i thought about thing as for writing and putting them down on paper.
Don't know if this is possible, but if possibe maybe making some of the texts such as Beyond Winning (since no longer published) on Pdf. through Laulima. Submitting quizzes on laulima may help also. Having quizzes through the actual laulima site.
A little less writing and lecture time.
Less mindless busy work. Increased class discussion on thoughts and views about coaching. Maybe teach more about the act of coaching rather than the intangable, I would still feel lost coaching after completion of this class.
Doesn't need to be improved.
25. Other comments:
i think it should be a mandatory course for KRS students
KRS 434 was enjoyable, stretching and very infornative. It is the best writing intensive course i've taken. It helped me to really research the subject matter and was not just lecture and text book reading.
Take class outside, maybe give them a chance to coach. Teach us how to coach.
Good course. Learned a lot.
