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?
For my major this course was helpful in understanding the types of sentences and structures that there are.
This course helps me to write papers and make sure I use the right grammar and punctuation.
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.
It helped me develop a understanding for college level writing
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.
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.

I think that having the students go to the tutor center for their papers as a requirement was really helpful.
Better people in the class. Everything else was good.
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.
Playing more jeopardy

Everything is covered nicely
More peer review, especially with professor. More books sources.

17. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
I really enjoyed her teaching she was very up beat and got us involved.
She is awesome and cool and funny and fun to learn from.
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.
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
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.
Very caring professor that understands we that we have a life outside of class too
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.
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.
She's a great professor overall! I really enjoyed having her as my professor.
awesome professor!!
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.

20. My overall evaluation of this course is...
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
it is a good introduction course.
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.
I liked this course a lot it helped me improve my writing skills.
Great introduction class for first year college english.
I enjoyed the assignments, especially the fairytale rewrite. Good english course that introduces you to college level writing.
I had a lot of fun in this class.
Very interesting and insightful if you aren't familiar with AP English's teachings.
this class was great for going towards your major or just learning more about English writing!
A+ The course is not challenging at all if you do your papers and take maybe 10- 15 minutes to study for the quizzes.
21. Other comments:
Hi Dr. No, you're cool :) I just wish the right side of the class wasn't there.
You're an awesome professor Dr. Nolte!!
Fantastic instructor and great class to have been in.
Cant wait for english 200 with Carmen Nolte
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.

YOU GOOD lol
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.
17. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
very awesome. She is a very understanding teacher. She will help you pass her course if you ask.
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.
Very well taught class. I can honestly say I have learned something from this class.
She is a very great professor and person to start my freshman year here at west oahu.
she is a good professor. she made things as clear and organized as possible
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.

20. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Awesome. This really helps students who places between ENG 82 & ENG 100.
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.
NA
it was fun and easy to undestand
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.
21. Other comments:
NA
I have no other comments as of today, but I would like to wish Professor Nolte-Odhiambo the best of luck as a English Professor in the near future as she continues to embark her journey of continuing to teach students English.

This course taught me how to write properly with accordance to grammar, punctuation, MLA format, etc.
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.
It helped me enhance my writing skills when writing research papers, finding scholarly sources and more.
This course helps strengthen your basic knowledge in writing to become a better writer.
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 enhanced my writing skills.
It helped me learn how to be more of a good writer, on how to put a good essay together.
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 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!
Helped me write all kinds of papers.

5. Please comment on the activities or resources that could be added to this course to improve your learning.
The activities incorporated with this class,helped create guidelines that introduced new positive ways to interpret new knowledge.
I think there should be more creative writing assignments. Not necessarily essays but maybe shot stories.
i have none
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!
Nothing can really be added because Ms. Nolte makes the class fun and comfortable.

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...
Nothing.
17. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
SHE'S AN AWESOME TEACHER!!!!!!!!!!
Awesome teacher! Very knowledgeable in her work.
Very fun teacher, Carmen held an ongoing positive relationship with the student that allowed for us to be comfortable an open with her.
She does a very good job instructing the class and makes sure everyone understands the work.
she is an amazing teachers
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.
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.
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!
Overall! To the point! Do NOT Loose her!!! Keep her on your STAFF! She is a valuable resource!!!!!

Helpful in improving your writing skills.
Exceptional class, the environment that Carmen creates is so welcoming and enthusiastic overall my favorite class this semester.
It's a good class.
great course to get a good start with college writing
It was fun and enjoyable. Class was always uplifting and never boring.
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.
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!
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.
fun and the work load is not too much.
Great course!

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.
Definitely helped my grammar and writing skills.
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.
This course has improved my grammar and has helped me become more punctual.
It enhances how I should write my paper.

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.
None.

I liked the class discussions. Getting everyone's input/opinion is VERY important.
None.
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.
I love how everything is very organized and she goes by her syllabus exactly.
she is a great teacher, enthusiastic and energetic, great content, very helpful and informative.
Great instructor. Very outgoing and passionate on grammar in general.
Better than last semester. I have fun being in her class.
Ms. Nolte is awesome! I loved being in her class. She made it easy for me to transition Into college with her encouragement.

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!
It helped learn a lot about grammar. It is the little things that will help with perfecting future papers to write.
it was great if i have to take this course again i would take it with her again.
Simply great.
Is a thumbs up!
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.
None
I would definitely recommend people to take her if they take this course.

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.

I like it.
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.
