4. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
The textbooks were very helpful with my writing.
I learned a lot of grammer and punctuations. We learned so many different things. This was a great class! I had a great instructor. I think I should have kept a journal on all the things that I learned. I really did improve this semester. Thanks to Mr. Chatenever.
Mr. Chatenever was a great instructor who made me feel very comfortable with talking to him & asking him questions. He was open to new ideas and was very encouraging. It was a very hands on class that opened me & my mind up to different and new things.
Mr. Chatenever, is an AWESOME teacher. I am very PLEASED with his help and OVERALL explanation of this english course.
I generally enjoy English so that really helped. Everything we learned, especially engaging in discussion was very helpful. Although I never had much to say, I had my own opinions, but kept it to myself while listening to what others had to say. This class was really enjoyable!
He encourages us to excel and do well. He is very helpful, patient and and his lectures are interesting. At first I was nervous about taking this class since he works at the Maui News, but it turns out that I am very grateful to have had his class. I have learned alot about myself and my writing skills and although I will never go into a career involving journalism, at least I can say that my writing skills have definitely improved. That is important to my current job as a sales manager. I appreciate all that I have learned this semester from Rick Chatenever.
His way of teaching.
The constructive criticism
The class discusions are the best part about the class and the feedback that we get on our essays are helpful too.

12. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
Add more in-class writing just for creative thinking or writing.
He did a wonderful job. I have no suggestions on how to improve this class.
Possibly just giving more time for the final research essay, other than that everything was perfect.
nothing=)..the course was very ENJOYABLE
Sometimes, the class got a little boring BUT I wouldn't necessarily blame it on the teacher. I think it was just the fact that it was an early class so I would be tired so I wouldn't be completely awake all the time to devote the amount of attention that I could have.
Maybe just be more available for help.
More warning on large papers
Give more time for the research paper because it seems like there's just barely enough time to get it done.
13. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
He is very organized and thorough with what he is teaching.
He is a great instructor. He should get a raise!
That he is a fantastic teacher, that made me really enjoy coming to class.
Mr. Chatenever, is very organized and a very helpful teacher. One of the BEST english teachers i have ever had. I will definitely recommend Mr. Chatenever to friends and family.
He's great. He has a good connection with the students and actually teaches in a way that makes us interested and want to learn. He talks about issues that are interesting and we can relate to.
he is a great teacher.
Very good
14. My overall evaluation of this course is...
There is lots of interaction in class. I found it to be very fun and enjoyable.
This was a great course. I love to read. The essays, helped me to improve.
that Im going to miss this class and that it was for sure my favorite class to date
AWESOME!
I would recommend it to anyone and if it was necessary for me to take another English class, I would want one just like this one. I really enjoyed this class and I can honestly say although I didn't obtain a perfect attendance, I am really sad about that and every time I did go to class, there was always a good laugh, or something that was just the icing on the cake.
This class was great and very helpful.
A good class
It was very interesting. I feel like I learned something, unlike some of my other classes.
