2. If this course was taken to fulfill course requirements for your concentration/major, how did this course enhance your personal and/or professional development in your concentration/major?
By teaching me how to write scholarly articles and how to write in more formal ways.
This course has enhanced my personal/ professional development towards my concentration/major because this course taught me the structures well needed in my future profession. Taking this class isn't just a collaboration of the class levels, rather under the teachings of Dr.Carmen Nolte, this class has helped me a lot in how to write papers and how to formally present research topics. Without her help, I think i would be writing at a level below average.
This course was not a requirement for my major.
I learned so much from Kumu Nolte. I appreciate her taking time out of her day to help me and my fellow classmates with projects, etc. I think anyone can pass her class because she is the nicest but well reliable Teacher. She has never showed up late and never left early.
This course enhanced my personal development in my major because it has taught me to be well organized, how to write papers, and how not to procrastinate. In the business world, I know I will have to be on my toes, and this class has taught me to do just that.
She did well at teaching us grammar, research papers and etc. I feel that i know a little more than i did before taking this course. Actually, i learned a lot more than my other english class.
helped me to become a better writer

5. Please comment on the activities or resources that could be added to this course to improve your learning.
None all the resourced she provided for class was very successful.
I don't think I would add anything towards this class that would help my learning. Everything so far has been taught in a way I understand more and there is a lot of teacher/student activities that made the class more exciting instead of just listening to lectures all day.
Maybe do more study sessions. Like more jeopardy or some other type of game.
I feel that she covered everything.
This course should have an extra day to fully understand the contents. This course has so much content and that the students need to have just an extra day a week to surely know they understand the content with the professor.

17. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
GREAT! i loved her! she made the subject of english very enjoyable. She made lessons interestiong, went over readings for better understanding and assisted help and allowed further questions.
She is an amazing teacher to work with and she loves to get in depth with her unique students. It was a pleasure learning under her because she really understands her students and how they work. She makes sure we get our work done and we get it down right all the time.
She is a wonderful teacher and is always willing to help you out if you need it.
She is the best Teacher I have ever had in my life in college. she is very respectful. very thoughtful, and fair amongst everyone.
She is such an amazing professor. She really knows how to get students engaged into the texts, and teaches things that we need to know for the real world. We get a lot of one-on-one time with her and she makes sure to answer any questions we have. Getting in contact with her and she is very helpful at anytime.
that she is AWESOME. She is very understanding and takes the extra mile to reach out to help the students.
She is a really well teacher. She helps us when we need it. If we dont know anything, i am comfortable how she teaches us. She takes her time, i like how she waits till we all get it. Its a nice place to relax and learn instead of having other professors talk super fast and not being able to take notes.
great course very understandable

GREAT! though it is an english course lessons also tie into different subjects such as history and life lessons.
A SUPER beneficial class to take
This is a great course to take and will always be a memorable one.
I hope I pass. I really need this now more than ever. I have been in bad situations in my life so far and I need a break just a little break. but thank you Kumu Nolte for everything you have taught me.
I loved this course, it was my favorite English class I have ever taken.
that it is very helpful in ways such as, understanding grammar in an easier way and learning how to write certain types of papers.
i love this professor !
effective and simple not to complicated
21. Other comments:
I loved this class! however personally i took the 22 composition of the class twice because i didnt know this alternative class was offered. I shined in the class because majority of things were reviews however a lot of the material that i already learned was taught in a way more efficiently by this professor.
have more teachers like her(:

alowed me the opportunity to learn the different structures for writing proper reports, essays and such
this was not towards my major. though i did learn quite a lot through her class and the concepts of media that we learned about.
It helped review theories and terms. Also taught me the different techniques in Psychology.
This helped me to look deeper in readings and media to comprehend and understand the evolution of society and others. This helps me work with people so yes it was help towards my major in business and management.
Learned many different writing styles.
This course gave me better practice and understanding on how to conduct a research paper.

I believe that the course is perfect the way it is structured
i think that for this course, she should've had maybe weekly one day visits in the library to run over every specific thing needed for the essays we've done.
All resources are good and activities were good as well.

Her online discussion feeds were brilliant, it was as if we were really in class having a class discussion about the readings. Overall, great teaching from Prof Nolte.
For group projects, enforce more on the deadlines. For the meia project, have drafts count against grading to ensure little procrastination.
I enjoyed the course! Although passing the class will be highly unlikely
Great class
17. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
good course and would recommend
She is an amazing teacher. I've never met her in person, but she is very good at communication. She replied to my emails very quickly when i needed help and she did give me a great amount of help and information when i needed it.
I enjoyed this course and learned many materials.
I have had Dr. Nolte for my freshman year and I have always enjoyed her teachings and presence alone. So with that being said she is a great professor and advisor. The only reason i wouldn't be able to pass this course was because of it being an online class, rather than being in person. I understand the consequences of potentially not passing but like i said, I really enjoy being a part of your class!

Overall loved this class.
I was able to wake up at 8am and learn from the class.
Professor, continue to do great in your profession and if worst comes to worst ill be taking ENG 200 with you again! online AGAIN! lol just to pass it since I believe it will be difficult to make up this semester!

It didn't. I am still wondering what this class had to do with my major.
this course gave me a different perspective on things that occur in everyday society. we covered topics that i would not have pondered on had i not taken this class.
This course helped me to analyze pieces of writing and videos.
This course was taken to fulfill a UHWO core requirement. This course has helped me become a better writer.
The readings that were assigned were easy to read and understand. I'm not sure how this helped with my major. All I know is that this class was a requirement for me to take.

the activities and resources were good. readily available on laulima, where links were also sent by email.

I believe that Professor No implemented a good amount of activities and resources to improve my learning in this course.
Having short readings was easy because it didn't seem overwhelming to complete. The work for this class is do-able.

This course helps me to write papers and make sure I use the right grammar and punctuation.
For my major this course was helpful in understanding the types of sentences and structures that there are.
This course enhanced my personal development because with each paper we had to write, it became easier and i became more confident in my writing.
It helped me develop a understanding for college level writing
This course was a great experience regarding an introduction into college english and writing. This course has further helped me with writing future papers, as well as writing current papers for other classes.
Coming from AP English/Literature in high school, taking this course allowed me to review many things I learned from those classes. Although a lot of what was taught felt like a review, I was able to gain a better feel/understanding as to how writing essays in college would feel like.

Playing more jeopardy
I think that having the students go to the tutor center for their papers as a requirement was really helpful.
I think everything was great, I LOVED the SI sessions, i think you should definitely keep those!
Better people in the class. Everything else was good.
Everything is covered nicely
None. Dr. Nolte incorporates very useful methods of teaching. We once played jeopardy when we were learning about possessives and it helped me a lot. She also does her best to make sure we excel by giving us an extra question on every quiz that could count as extra credit if all questions are correct as well as having peer review workshops that help us sort out and fix our ideas for important papers. Great teacher, great course.
N/A This course provided multiple activities that help with my learning process.

She is doing a great job teaching
i have no suggestions
Like i said above, i loved the SI sessions, they were really helpful!
Less time spent on peer review workshops because we had a lot of free time after.
I liked her teaching style
None, she's great.
N/A SHE'S AN AMAZING INSTRUCTOR!

Not really improvements, but just ideas. More essay topics I guess. Besides that, this course felt simply great.
17. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
She is very good professor and she helped me out a lot when I get stuck on a assignment or don't understand a lesson
I really enjoyed her teaching she was very up beat and got us involved.
awesome professor!!
She is awesome and cool and funny and fun to learn from.
Very caring professor that understands we that we have a life outside of class too
Professor Nolte is the best professor I have had so far. She truly cares about the success of her students. She's passionate about her job and she's a very easy person to approach with any questions or concerns about the course/assignments. Professor Nolte gave us a reasonable amount of time to complete our assignments, and ask any questions we had before the due date. She makes sure that we understand material that we're learning in class before moving onto other things. She's an awesome professor.
Dr. No is very approachable and although lenient in some situations during class still maintains the strict expectations/requirements for her students being they/we are in college.
Dr. Carmen Nolte is a fantastic instructor. From the beginning of the course she made it known that this course was going to be fun and at the same time the learning process will be on point.
Amazing! I love Dr. Nolte! Normally I would be afraid to read teacher's comments but i always looked forward to reading hers because they were always so helpful and she never had anything negative to say. In addition, Dr. Nolte is very helpful, enthusiastic, and easy to talk to. I never dreaded going to her class.
She is an awesome teacher. I wish that she was teaching an in-person class for English 200. I recommend everybody to take her class.
She's a great professor overall! I really enjoyed having her as my professor.

I liked this course a lot it helped me improve my writing skills.
I really enjoyed her class especially when it came to the paper topics and how they were all different and how we were able to add are on personality to the papers. During class her lecture were not boring or typical lectures she really got us involved as a class
this class was great for going towards your major or just learning more about English writing!
it is a good introduction course.
I enjoyed the assignments, especially the fairytale rewrite. Good english course that introduces you to college level writing.
This was a good course. All assignments were on the course syllabus so I knew what to expect from the start. Her calendar was very thorough. Professor Nolte included every assignment, quiz, and peer review workshop on her calendar and gave us their respected dates. I learned things that I didn't learn in high school and Dr. Nolte also helped me better understand things that I did learn in high school. The work was very reasonable. All grammar exercises were based off of the Rules For Writers book that we were assigned, these exercises didn't take very long and they were very helpful. The requirements for our big essays weren't ridiculous at all and they were spaced out nicely in regards to when they were all assigned/due.
Great introduction class for first year college english.
A+ The course is not challenging at all if you do your papers and take maybe 10- 15 minutes to study for the quizzes.
I had a lot of fun in this class.
Very interesting and insightful if you aren't familiar with AP English's teachings.

YOUR THE BEST CARMEN! (:
Hi Dr. No, you're cool :) I just wish the right side of the class wasn't there.
Cant wait for english 200 with Carmen Nolte
You're an awesome professor Dr. Nolte!!
Fantastic instructor and great class to have been in.
The only thing i felt was difficult to keep up with was the readings
Allow her to teach english 200 in person!

The activities/resources that could be added to this course would probably be more availability in the office hours in terms of convenience. I find that office hours in the mid-afternoon conflicts with my schedule, and that I believe having more help in reviewing my essays in office hours will help me succeed in making my composition skills. Overall, Professor Nolte was really enthusiastic in teaching this course, that I enjoyed attending English 196 C every class session.

a lot of class discussions
Some suggestions that I believe in improving this course is probably extend longer deadlines for the No'eau tutoring that you must do before doing an essay. I feel that the writing process should not be rushed and that there a successful essay would need multiple tutoring slips from a qualified tutor along with more writing peer-review workshops in a span of at least 3 weeks. Most deadlines were 2 weeks, and I feel that 2 weeks isn't a adequate amount of time to complete the writing process adequately.
YOU GOOD lol
17. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
Very well taught class. I can honestly say I have learned something from this class.
very awesome. She is a very understanding teacher. She will help you pass her course if you ask.
she is a good professor. she made things as clear and organized as possible
She is a very great professor, she helped me write and understand English better. Though this was the first 196C class and we were the test run, I give and A for this course. This course helps students like me understand and write English better.
that she is a really enthusiastic and great Professor! Professor Nolte-Odhiambo is so laid back, open to many things that other Professors won't usually do in assigning requirements for the writing process such as using "first person" in formal writing like in the final essay. The fact that Professor Nolte-Odhiambo is really enthusiastic has made reading and writing composition a lot more fun and easy to do. I would recommend Professor Nolte-Odhiambo to many students who opt to take a English course.
She is a very great professor and person to start my freshman year here at west oahu.

Awesome. This really helps students who places between ENG 82 & ENG 100.
it was fun and easy to undestand
I give the overall evaluation of this course an A because I learned a lot in just a few months. I have learned more about reading, and writing than I ever did before. I'm glad that I took this course because it helped me become a better writer, and it taught me how to not use run-on, misplaces of the apostrophe, and others. I recommend that all students that are placed into ENG 82 take this course, its concurrent to ENG 100, and it doesn't make you feel like you are dumb. I took this course because administration told me that it was concurrent to ENG 100 and I didn't want to take another course that made me feel dumb. I took this course because I knew that it would help me with my writing.
really great because I have learned a lot of great material and learned to appreciate reading and writing. When I was in High School, I didn't appreciate the reading and writing process that learning the components of The English language itself wasn't of any interest to me. As I successfully experienced a great Semester in English 196 C with Professor Nolte-Odhiambo, I have learned to appreciate English Humanities arts more and strive to be better in other courses that require analyzing texts and using English composition.

It helped me enhance my writing skills when writing research papers, finding scholarly sources and more.
Helped me write all kinds of papers.
This course taught me how to write properly with accordance to grammar, punctuation, MLA format, etc.
it enhanced my writing skills.
This class has helped me become a better writer and reader. My obtained skills have helped me improve in understanding different types of styles of writing and writing composure.
This course helped me learn how to write with better grammar. I also learned many different outlines, different ways to write an essay, annotated bibliography, argumentative papers, etc. My concentration/major is elementary education, so what I've learned in class will definitely help me become a future teacher.
it helped me to feel better about my writing ability and taught me the correct skills needed for paperwork and essays in the future
It helped me learn how to be more of a good writer, on how to put a good essay together.
It helped me overall professionally because Dr. Nolte is a very honest and passionate person when it comes to her job which in turned resulted in my motivation to complete all her assignments. When a person is motivated and love their jobs it makes learning and teaching alot more fun and easier. I strongly belive that you folks should have Dr. Nolte teach a German laungauage course. She is one the best profesional teachers I have come across. She has alot of potentional and can offer a great positive contribution to the West Oahu Community or anyone attending her English courses. I will always remember her natural ability to always make sure we understood what we needed to know without any flaws. Overall, she is a keeper!
This course helps strengthen your basic knowledge in writing to become a better writer.

Nothing can really be added because Ms. Nolte makes the class fun and comfortable.
The activities incorporated with this class,helped create guidelines that introduced new positive ways to interpret new knowledge.
We had many activities! In the beginning of the semester, we watched a movie based on Little Red Riding Hood to help us come up and write our own version of LRRH. Before we turn in our three draft copies of our essays, we have a 'revising workshop', where we get into groups and revise each others' papers. Professor Nolte also created a grammar worksheet, where we would have to correct sentences. All of these activities definitely improve my learning!
i have none
Maybe incorporating more student-interest essays. But even that isn't necessary because her course is great!
I think there should be more creative writing assignments. Not necessarily essays but maybe shot stories.

Keep doing what you are doing, you are great!!!
Her teaching style is above and beyond normal with her ability to help others... She was always clear from the start to finish on everything stated and directed towards assignments... Very clear and decisive! She is a natural leader... She is very beautiful inside and out... always smiling and keeping the class in focus on the assignments. Not like some teachers where they drag on about subjects not related to the class material or assignmnets... Communication and the way she expressed material was her highlight...

she's a very good teacher. She always answers questions and shes very thorough when going over her lectures. She is always encouraging to students.
Very fun teacher, Carmen held an ongoing positive relationship with the student that allowed for us to be comfortable an open with her.
Professor Nolte is a great English teacher! She's very kind and understanding. She makes sure her students are learning and if someone or the whole class doesn't understand something, she tries to explain it in a better way for them to understand. She's funny too!
she is an amazing teachers
Professor Nolte, I really enjoyed this class. My overall evaluation is that she is an outstanding educator and fun to learn from.
She is an awesome teacher, i wish she was doing ENG 200, i would have took her class. She is very passionate in what she does, if any student in the class needed help, she would always be there to help.
Overall! To the point! Do NOT Loose her!!! Keep her on your STAFF! She is a valuable resource!!!!!
She does a very good job instructing the class and makes sure everyone understands the work.

If you need to take English 100, take it with Professor Nolte!
fun and the work load is not too much.
Helpful in improving your writing skills.
It was fun and enjoyable. Class was always uplifting and never boring.
Exceptional class, the environment that Carmen creates is so welcoming and enthusiastic overall my favorite class this semester.
This course was fun! I'm glad I took this course with Professor Nolte. I've learned many things from her teachings. This class was never boring!
great course to get a good start with college writing
Great course!
It was really fun writing all those essays, my favorite essay to write about was the Little red riding hood essay, the fairy tale essay.
I thought it was very educational coming from a person like me... I am retierd fromn the U.S. Army and I learned alot more about writing than I ever did in the military. In the military there is a lot of plagiarism and cut and paste from templates, change name place and dates.... Everything was already formatted for you... However, whole different goal here... I learned alot and highly recommend her course as a mandatory course for all majors.
It's a good class.

Carmen Nolte: ENG200, Spring 2013     Back to top

Course: ENG 200 - Composition II Crn (Section): 66262 (9)

2. If this course was taken to fulfill course requirements for your concentration/major, how did this course enhance your personal and/or professional development in your concentration/major?
This course definitely helped me with my writing and reading skills. I expect to take my senior project course next semester and the things I learned in this course will be a huge help when I have to write a 16 page paper.
Conveying intellectual thought by written word is a cornerstone of a higher education. This course does well to promote open discussions to develop content for papers narrowing in on specific research to apply this concept. In this case, the research topic was pop-culture. The textbook, although seemingly coming off as liberal and brash, covering such topics as 'bitches and hos', was actually highly insightful in developing sociological perspective. This translated well into excellent class discussions with high class participation in an open environment. As a senior and seasoned writer from my previous educational experiences, I took this class a bit late, but nonetheless gained insight in APA format and the fine tuning of meter, prose and the 'rare' rules of grammar within the English language.
This course has improved my grammar and has helped me become more punctual.
Definitely helped my grammar and writing skills.
It enhances how I should write my paper.
this course has brought my attention to more techniques to send it a good paper, and this course has also improve me in formatting skills.

16. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
I have no suggestions; Carmen Nolte is an awesome teacher.
All assignments and papers were in APA throughout the semester, however the final was in MLA. I noticed format and style errors in my peers papers during the last review session: Lack of thesis in opening paragraph Quotes/citations in opening paragraph Lack of relevance connection between body paragraphs Lack of relevance connection between body paragraph to thesis One method which always helped me writing papers was my English 100 course which used the 'Step Up To Writing' approach. This emphasized the use of colors of 'green, yellow, red' in connection to content positioning; this resonated well with my visual/hands on learning style. Since there was a little free time at the end of the semester perhaps this can be squeezed in - at least a stronger emphasis on MLA.
I liked the class discussions. Getting everyone's input/opinion is VERY important.
None.

nothing, i like this teacher.
17. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
She is one of the greatest professors I have ever had. She is always willing to help the students out, give as much advice as possible, and take the time to explain points that may be confusing.
Cheery, eccentric, masterful command of the English language and brightens a room - excellent.
Great instructor. Very outgoing and passionate on grammar in general.
I love how everything is very organized and she goes by her syllabus exactly.
Ms. Nolte is awesome! I loved being in her class. She made it easy for me to transition Into college with her encouragement.
Better than last semester. I have fun being in her class.
she is a great teacher, enthusiastic and energetic, great content, very helpful and informative.

20. My overall evaluation of this course is...
I would recommend Carmen Nolte-Odhiambo to any other student who plans to take ENG200. The course material was not easy and the papers required a lot of time and effort but Carmen made the writing process much easier. The course material is definitely beneficial and I know that I will need the skills acquired in this class for the future.
Great, but I wish there was a competency exam for UHWO I could have test past this course for. Much of the content was a bit redundant for me other than learning APA in 5 minutes (or which I could have referenced online). Great class discussions!
Simply great.
It helped learn a lot about grammar. It is the little things that will help with perfecting future papers to write.
Is a thumbs up!
it was great if i have to take this course again i would take it with her again.
21. Other comments:
Seriously, I have so much respect for Carmen because of her great teaching skills, her honesty, and her patience. She genuinely cares about her students and does whatever she can to help them succeed. Her passion for the subject definitely shows as she teaches. I would take more courses from her if she taught any. But as for now, the only thing I can do is recommend her to all students who need to fulfill the ENG200 requirement.
This is the 4th time I have written an evaluation due to time outs. I enjoyed the course enough to rewrite this that many times.
I would definitely recommend people to take her if they take this course.

AAAAAAAAA++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
I really liked the way she taught. She taught in a way that everyone could understand.
great teacher
She is a good teacher.
She gave great insigts on a lot of writing techniques and indications on how to improve writhing performance. She is easy to work with and the disscussions we go over as a class really help clear up details about the assignments.
It was a pleasure to take Carmen Nolte's class. As a freshman, it excites me for my English classes the rest of my years. The class atmosphere created by Nolte was very comforting and easy to learn, yet effective and engaging. Scheduling of class lessons, readings, assignments, etc. was all very organized and easy to follow.
Great. Related to us on a lot of topics
Very good teacher. Lets you argue points and presents material well.

A+
This class was very helpful in helping me understand grammar and writing skills. This class also helped me to write different types of essays not just research papers.
10/10! great class
It was an informative class that helped me to improve my writing.
This course was a really good refresher for a writing course but also adds a touch of new styles and writing perspectives to inhance your academic writing performance.
Good and fun. Easy to talk to everyone
Very good.
