13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
sdas
Mrs. Chang's major strength as a teacher was always being there when we needed her help. She always kept in touch with us if we were out sick or we couldn't make it to class.
She knew what she talking about. Communication was awesome.
she helped us on what areas we were weak in. when we had an assignment she would check our work and make sure we understood the assignment.
Kathleen Changs major strengths are setting a clear example of what kind of work is to be acceptable for the current assignment.
She is very good at making sure that all students participate in class discussions as well as guiding students with writing exercises.
She really knows how to connect with her students and teach them in a very easy and organized manner.
She really pushes her students to apply what she taught in class to imporve their essays and grammar. She is easy to get in contact with when her students miss a class.
SHE IS VERY OPEN AND VERY CLEAR ABOUT WHAT WE ARE TO DO .SHE IS VERY CLEAR AT WHAT WE ARE TO BE WORKING ON AND SHE IS VERY HELPFUL TO ALL THE STUDENTS .
her knowledge and her enthusiasm for teaching, some teachers just teach to do their job but Kathy really helps you succeed in the class and give you extra help if necessary
Returning graded assignments back promptly and if I had any missing assignments she was quick to let me know what those assignments were. Also, I like how she showed she was concerned about my grade and made herself available if I needed help with anything.
Her teaching style is great. a very responsive teacher.
That she was very organized and had all her assignments and tests prepared correctly. Everything she went over with us in the syllabus was what we did in class. There were no suprises.
Kathleen Chang's major strengths as a teacher was by having a binder with all the assignments we had through out the semester. It made it easier for me to know what I would expect for the next assignment. Also with our essay's, I felt that by having to have a step by step process helped me out a lot. It made it easier for me to write my essay's.
Kathleen Chang is a very good instructor, she has a very good style of teaching that makes it a lot easier for us students. :)
Professor Chang is a Prepared and organized instructor. She is also a good motivator for the student
Her major strengths as a teacher are: that she is very knowledgable about the course, she always comes to class prepared, she has all work graded by the next class, she encourages her students to turn everything in & do work efficiently.
She cares a lot about her students and always made sure we understood what we were doing. Ms. Chang was an outstanding teacher and I would not mind having her next semester.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
adsa
I don't have any suggestions for her.
Nothing
nothing she is doing a great job
No changes, let Kathleen Chang work her own writting and teaching skills.
That there will be a better point system, therefore letting students know how much extra credit points are given.
Ms. Chang's class is the best english class I have ever taken. I feel that she has nothing to improve.
I cannot think of any changes Kathleen Chang should change. She is doing a great job.
NONE SHE IS A FANTASTIC TEACHER SHE DOES A WONDERFUL JOB,SHE IS VERY FAIR AND SUPER HELPFUL IF YOU ASK FOR THE HELP .
NONE
I thought Kathleen Chang did a great job at teaching the class in an organized, and understandable fashion.
Maybe not have 1 essay more important than the other. We had to re-do our essay #3 almost three times. It was very frustrating having to repeatedly do it over, and over again.
I believe she grades essays a bit hard.
She is already perfect.
none.
I honestly can't think of anything. The class was efficient and enjoyable.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
sds
She should she cared about us by always trying to get us to improve our work. She was the only teacher i met that would allow her students to turn in their work again for a higher grade. It is like she wanted everyone to pass with an A =]
she would tell us to do our work.
she asked us if we were okay when we are quite in class.
When a stduent is failing she will tell you straight up what you need to do to pass or even if theres a chance to pass the sememter.
If our essays get to many errors; she knows how to make our essays perfect and well thought out.
Having students redo essays, on areas where it could be improved.
She helped me every step of the way and really knows how to teach her students with respect and care.
She individual have talks with each student and tell them what assignments they are missing, the students' progress in class and also asks if they have any questions.
SHE WOULD PUT NOTES ON YOUR WORK THAT SHE HANDED BACK AND ASK IF YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT WE WERE DOING AND ASK IF WE NEED SOME HELP . SHE WAS ALWAYS REACHING OUT TO THE STUDENTS TO HELP THE BETTER THEM SELVES.
If we had questions we could email her if your grade was dropping she would talk to you one on one about what you need to do to pick it up
If anyone was missing class or missing assignments she would let us know right away.
She treated us all well
Any assignments that we did not turn in she let us know what we were missing and what we can do to improve what we needed to to pass the class and move on to the next level.
She showed concern for students by having one on one conversations with each student telling them how they are doing in the class so far and what could be improved on, and all the missing assignments they had. Also with our essay's if we had a low score on it the first time, she would let us revise it and turn it in next class.
She always told us if we needed anything that we could ask her. Also, near the end of the semester, she let us know what assignments were missing.
She always asks if I need help.
She always encourages her students to be prompt for class, to try not to be tardy or absent, & that if we have any questions to feel free to ask.
By having little meetings with every student after returning a paper and quiz. Also having us meet with her mid semester to find out what grade we were getting and if anything was missing.
