13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
He puts in a lot of effort. It's clear to students that he comes to class prepared; he puts a lot of thought and consideration into class materials. Furthermore, he encourages students to share their ideas, which I think is great because it's always great to gain some different perspective.
He's a nice teacher i have ever met

well organized.
Fluent in both in English and Chinese-Mandarin. Well prepared for the classes to let student having well understanding.
1) He set a clear objective for each class, so we can stay focus. 2) Chinese culture may be a boring subject but he keeps his class interesting.
knows his subject well willing to help students and caring students speaks lectures loud and clear passionate
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
More discussions in Chinese. I think it's absolutely wonderful that most assignments students have the option between Chinese or English, however I think it would be even more effective as a Chinese course if discussions were mostly held in Chinese.
He's good.
Less quizzes
Explains more
no
It is hard to learn Chinese culture by using English to explain it.
No
I hope Dr. Carl can talk more about Chinese culture. Not just talk and teach deeply.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
During group discussion time, he doesn't just stand on the side watching on, he goes around and engages with each group, asking if there are any questions, and asks to hear what the group has discussed about. Furthermore, if a student has concerns about their grades or the class materials, he is very understanding and assists in finding solutions to their problems.
He listens to students's ideas
He makes sure everyone understands instructions.
no
Feel free to ask him questions or make an appointment to meet him by email anytime.
He is willing to answer our questions after the class.
When I asked him one question, he explained that question very detailed. I showed him my difficulties to do the service learning, Dr. Carl helped me address the difficulties.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Definitely. I think he is a great teacher, he puts effort into his studies, and he knows his material very well.

You are a good teacher
I think you can teach students more about Chinese cultures.
He is a great professor, he made me feel less worry about my first semester for college.

18. Other comments:
too many group works
n/a
Nice!
I was curious that whether Dr. Carl could understand our Chinese presentation. Because when I presented in Chinese, I spoke very fast, and I looked at his blue eyeballs. He seems to be confused.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
The course objectives and procedures were clear.
Always provided feedback on performance. Easy to reach, sends prompt replies.
Carl Polley was very educated in his subject and you could tell even through the internet that he enjoyed what he was teaching and especially enjoys teaching others the subject.
He gives detailed feedback that is helpful to everyone in the class. He explains what he wants in great detail for his assignments, which is incredibly helpful.
Very encouraging and fostered a lot of class discussion. Very prompt in responding to questions and made himself available. I like the requirements of class participation and I think his way of handling it encouraged people to participate even if they would normally be silent in a regular classroom situation.
Mr. Polley knew his topic thoroughly.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
Maybe allow additional observation responses to be apart of grading for class discussion.
I would not change the assignment deadline only. Id suggest that the deadline be moved to maybe Sunday night so the people who have full time jobs are able to spend more time on assignments and therefore get better grades.
Since this is a summer school course, the pace is fast. If it were a semester class I'd have comments on the pace, but no other comments right now.
I never explored it, but is there a way to diagram sentences online if someone wanted to do some of the homework assignments that required it? Consider some live lectures or discussions to enable students to hear some of the examples and to work on some diagramming together.
Perhaps it was just me, but I had a bit of difficulty following the assignment due dates from the syllabus. Over time I was able to figure it out with trial and error.
Add more audio examples to the online course
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Addressed all questions and concerns promptly.
provided feedback on assignments. encourage discussions
In the grade book section he would write notes on the said saying to try again on your answer if it was not correct or he would give extra credit for student who are behind.
He emails back quite fast, which is really helpful/convenient.
Very understanding and compassionate when I had a personal family matter come up. Diplomatic and encouraging responses to our entries.
Each assignment he would give an example of how he wanted the work to be done rather than leaving it to the students to figure out. That can be difficult in an online class.
through email contact
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes, because the course objectives and procedures were clear.
Yes. He is very personable. Always replies to emails in a timely manner. Knowledgable of subject matter
Yes because he is a good teacher and knows his subject well.
Yes, he is a great professor. I like that his assignments makes you think for yourself and also converse with others. Because this is an online class, it is normally difficult to conduct a discussion, but his assignments create a efficient discussion.
Yes, very organized, covered the material well in a short period of time. Very nice and easy to work with. Flexible and accommodating.
Yes. Mr. Polley put out good information that was very interesting to learn.
Yes
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Nothing
I was scared at first about the class thinking I would not understand it but later on through the course I found it very interesting, some of the thing we are learning you dont normally think about on a day to day bases.
I would recommend this professor to friends.
I enjoyed being in his class and he is a good teacher.
He made the class enjoyable. I learned a lot about myself from his teachings.
Very interesting class. Was able to cover a great deal of information in a short span of time.
18. Other comments:
None
I enjoyed the class very much. It was not what I expected, but i learned a lot of new things and see application in my everyday life.

Carl is very knowledgeable on the subject of Linguistics. He gives good feedback and clear instructions making it much easier and bearable to take a online class. He encourages a lot of questions and discussions to make sure everyone is on it and not left behind.
He really knows the content well and does a good job responding back to students promptly.
He is very open and easy to reach out to. He really wants his students to be successful and encourages them to ask questions.
very knowledgable on the subject!
As an online teacher, during discussions, he remained active and in tune with us throughout the semester. It was refreshing to see that he was involved in discussing subjects alongside us.
He knows the subject well and makes it very clear what he expects from the class. I didn't have any additional questions even though there were a lot of assignments to post, his syllabus was very detailed and answered any questions regarding homework.
Professor Polley really knew the subject well and shared his knowledge with the class.
He really encourages everyone to interact with each other and respond to others thoughts and ideas.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
Maybe extending the assignments to Sunday since Friday feels short for those taking multiple summer school classes. Also, maybe grade the assignments in a more timely manner.
I do not suggest and changes.
None
n/a
I wouldn't change much anything. He was engaged, and stay involved with all discussions and assignments.
N/A
I don't have any changes, it was a great class.
Supplemental readings to help people who do not understand what they read in the textbook too clearly.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
He made sub-forums for any concerns and questions the students may have. He replies promptly to emails and forum questions, making sure any confusions are cleared of.
He showed concern for students by writing encouraging messages in the discussion boards on the online forum and makes himself available to answer any questions.
He was very encouraging in offering help to any students that needed it. He included in every e-mail he sent, to feel free at any time to e-mail him with questions or concerns.
always telling us to email him if we had any concerns or questions on the assignment
He wrote in every single thread for our online class. He also emailed us, reminding us of assignments and deadlines.
He was very personable even though it was an online course. He always tried to reply to student's discussion posts even though he didn't have to. Also, once he posted the wrong due date (made it too late) for two homework assignments, but since he already said it could be due 1 week later than the intended due date, he let us turn it in by the later date.
He was free to answer any questions or concerns to assignments that were due.
He writes comments in grade books and once when I emailed him he emailed me back within a few minutes with much concern for my problem.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes, he assigns a fair amount of work and encourages a lot of participation and discussion. The work was fairly challenging, but not difficult, making it very doable. You're guarantee to learn at least a thing or two on linguistics.
I would recommend him to other students because his class is very well organized and there are no surprises. He is fair and well educated.
Yes, he's very knowledgeable, fair, encouraging, and helpful.
yes because it was a fun class to take and very interesting
I normally would never recommend an online class, but he is an exception. I would most definitely recommend him. It's hard as a student who likes to learn head on from a teacher in a classroom setting, to appreciate an online class. But due to the fact that he stayed rather involved throughout the entire semester, was refreshing.
Yes, definitely! He is very nice and approachable, which is nice because especially in a class like linguistics, students have a lot of questions and it is key to feel comfortable to ask them all!
I would recommend Professor Polley because he really knows this subject and he makes the subject easy to learn.
Yes I would. This is my first online class but it seems well organized and easy to follow the assignments and their due dates.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Great teacher, challenging but not too difficult WI. Makes the subject of linguistics bearable. The textbook is a little mundane.
I have really enjoyed his class.
n/a
All online teachers should be like you. Online classes, I would normally say are self taught because teachers just give assignments and grade your work. But due to the fact that you stay posted and available, and stayed involved was really nice. And basically what every online teacher should do.

I don't know.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
Carl is a great teacher. I think he does not need to change anything.
Actually, I think he is very good, there is not many things he needs to change. Maybe try more Chinese speaking in class would be better, just as some practice.
No change. Good teacher.
I think Mr.Carl did good job in our class.
Please don't keep asking the question which we don't know. Maybe professor change other words or in Chinese will be fine, because sometime Chinese views are hard to explain in English.
Maybe Carl can add some funny games during the class.
I hope he can give more time to student for prepare presentations.
no.
no
Nothing.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?

He communicated with students.
He asked a lot of questions to student and make sure we understand in class.
He tried to tell his students do the best way they can.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes. Because in his class, I not only can learn a lot of English and Chinese skills but also can improve my critical thinking.
Maybe less teamwork in class would be better since I personally think the atmosphere of teamwork is not very good. Students were not took this very seriously, and sometimes it is kind of awkward.
No.
NO, he did good job.
Yes, because CHNS 290 only have one professor for this class, we don't have any choices.
Yes, he is nice.
Yes, it is because he class is not that difficult.
Yes, I will. He is a great teacher, sometimes when he ask you a question, if you don't know how to answer him back. He would say, "just say whatever you think, there's no right or wrong answers."
Yes He is a friendly teacher and his class is organized
Yes.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?

He really encourages class participation which is helpful in understanding the materials better.
He is a teacher that can make us participate in class
Structural, easy to get in touch with if needed, punctual.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
No for now.
I would have liked to do more translation kind of work. As simple as translating a paragraph of everyday use documents, that way the students really learn both English and Chinese.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
he always reply the email as soon as possible.
Encourages students to ask questions if they have any. Provides clear instructions to students who have missed class so that he/she doesn't fall behind in course.
He is really good with that, if you ask him a question, he'll answer you and give you his point of view and advice.

yes, cause he is really good.
Yes. Dr. Polley is a great instructor.
yes, he will make you think more about each question
Yes. Although in the beginning, I didn't really understand why we do certain things, but, at the end, it all made sense. Everything we do in the class is a process of our life, and I really enjoyed the class.

Class warm-ups (I feel like there's too much to answer for the short essay questions and I usually don't gain anything from it)

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Picks very interesting subject material. Addresses problems and answers questions very quickly.
He is concern for students.
Professor Polley organized the course very well.
Very organized.
I enjoyed this class more than I expected to. I learned a lot about the different types of Chinese poetry and the readings were so diverse!
Knowledgeable about the subject & offers help to students by sending links with information pertaining to the topic they chose for papers.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
It's a bit confusing to submit assignments twice, once on the discussion board and once in the assignments. Perhaps divide them up so we'd only have to submit once each time.
Too much discussion.
I think it would be best if you made weekly announcements, just to make sure everyone is aware of what's due and whatnot.
Perfectly fine just the way it is.
N/A
Please start grading assignments more promptly. It took almost a month to get back the midterm paper scores. It would also be nice if you made announcements more regularly and occasionally participated in the weekly discussions.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Answers questions, gives feedback, is prompt at putting up new content on board.
Help the students more understanding the course.
Professor Polley responded to emails quickly and really communicated with the students, rather than just answer questions.
Offers help for any students, especially when we struggle with essays.
He made sure that the syllabus was clear and easy to understand. He reiterated the directions for our assignments many times and on each assignment to make sure that we fully understood the task at hand. He would also remind us of specific tasks we were in charge of.
Not sure. Situation never arose.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes, if they like to read and write.
No.
Yes, I would recommend Professor Polley to other students. He treats all students fairly, even though more than half the class were ESL students. I thought that was really nice.
Yes, we get to read lots of interesting poems and novels.
I would definitely recommend Professor Polley's class! It was definitely Writing intensive but in a very enjoyable way! The directions for the assignments were so clearly explained and reiterated which made it a lot easier for me .
Depends on the student. Some people can't handle classes where the teachers hardly intervene. I would only recommend this class to people who are able to remember and keep to deadlines themselves and can fully function with limited interaction with the teacher.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Impressive feat by juggling the work of having all these assignments and classes and dealing with your newborn.
Thank you so much!
Professor Polley didn't grade things right away, but it was fine.
Great professor!
18. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
The interaction between students. Although there was a lot of writing, I got a lot of learning about other people's perspectives.
No.
I think the discussion was the most valuable, especially the leader discussions. It was very important to involve the students as leaders of the discussions, and show us how hard all that responsibility can be.
The weekly discussions.
I liked everything.
19. Which aspects of the course were least valuable?
Perhaps the journals. There's quite a bit of writing to be doing in the class and because the journals aren't critiqued, they don't serve a lot of purpose except buffer writing.
No.
All the work was individual, no group projects. I think this made it a little harder to really connect with the other students, almost like we're all just a bunch of strangers at the end of the semester.
I believe it is the Journal entries, because it can be repetitive and very similar to the class discussions.
20. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
The organization of some aspects of the board and assignments. It's nice that everything is spelled out, but I didn't like having to submit things twice.
No.
I think weekly announcements/reminders would be nice. I think a group project would be nice as well.
Nothing in mind at the moment.
I wish Professor Polley would've participated in the weekly discussions, sharing his perspectives of the readings we read. It would've made the discussions more enlightening I think.
Interact with the students more. Besides his first post to start the discussion topics, we hardly ever hear from him. I'm not even sure if he actually reads the discussion threads or not. Would be nice if he responded at least once a week.
21. What two or three single words best describe this instructor?
The college batman
Nice Helpful Smart.
Fair, nice, and helpful.
Helpful, Organzied, Amazing!
Lenient Knowledgeable Helpful
22. What changes would you make in the discussion sections?
Not posting so much of the paper sections to the forums. The rough drafts are good for posting, but the rest of the sections don't seem to do much.
Too much discussion, but it was good.
No changes, everything was really organized.
I believe that the minimum requirements for the discussion was a bit too much.
Again, post more! Interact with the students!
23. Other comments:
No.
Very nice class, very interesting.
Nope.
Story time: When I went to check out the discussion threads one week, I noticed that Prof. Polley had actually posted something after the discussion leader. This was odd since he never spoke in the discussion threads. It turns out that he the student that was discussion leader of that week had plagiarized her post, and he was pointing that out. However, I feel like the manner he did it in was extremely unprofessional. He corrected her on the thread, public to the entire class. This matter should have been held in email or face-to-face format, away from the extra eyes and ears of the class. It is against the teacher code of ethics to humiliate any student in any way (esp. in front of a class). If that had happened to me, you'd better believe I would've reported it to the highest official I could find. As it is, I was tempted to report him for her. It seems like she is one of KCC's many exchange students, and she probably was too embarrassed to take any action herself. Next time, please handle such situations in a more professional manner.
Carl is hardworking. He can reply our email very quickly. Good teaching skill. Well organized syllabus.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Always available and very reasonable. Cares for the students and wants them to succeed.
n/a
He is clearly knowledgable, and is approachable, friendly, and supportive. He responds to emails and questions in a timely manner and shares relevant information with the entire class.
Good guy
He really understands that his class isn't the only thing students are committed to. I think that really encouraged learning (at least for me). He takes part in a lot of the Laulima discussions by offering clarification on confusing topics and his experiences relating to the topic.
he helps his students understand information clearer if they have any questions, he explains it in great detail.
He knew the material really well and his students. He knows that with an online class kids tend to not do hw, so he extended a lot of assignments, and gave extensions to kids who had trouble like if they didn't have a working laptop.
I feel that Carl Polley's major strengths as a teacher are that he is an extremely effective communicator and that he is very supportive of his students. Professor Polley wants all of us to really succeed, he offers his assistance at all times and is available via email or telephone and responds in a timely manner. Professor Polley has gone over and beyond to reach out to all of us in his online class to offer his help if we needed it.
Very helpful and wants his students to succeed and do well in his class.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
while I actually enjoyed my group I don't really think online courses and group projects go together! If I were to do this semester over again I would've taken this course in a classroom setting so I could have better worked with my group and had questions answered as we asked them. Not that Mr. Polley was slow to respond to emails but by the time a response was made we weren't in our group anymore... and we'd only meet up once a week for a couple hours, its been hard to really grasp linguistic concepts this way!
Mostly I would ask for more examples for some of the homework assignments so that I can better gauge my progress and whether or not I'm actually doing what is asked of me. Also, explanations in more layman terms or more real-world examples
Sooooo much busy work
Nothing, he was very lenient
Some of the instructions for the assignments weren't clear, some assignments I turned in not knowing if I did it right or not. Clearer instructions asking specifically for what is needed to turn in would be better.
n/a
Update grades more often and frequently as assignments are turned in.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
n/a
Grading fairly, encouraging to complete all assignments, even if they were late. Always responded to emails and then shared relevant information and questions raised by other students will all of his students.
Responded to emails
Yes. He's changed the schedule at least once to allow us to focus on one assignment or another. He also allows resubmissions for most assignments.
He responded to emails very quickly
He extended assignments or pointed us in the right direction if we didn't know what to do.
Professor Polley continuously and frequently communicated with us that he was available via email or telephone if we needed his assistance. He informed us of any changes or updates. He expressed at all times throughout the semester that although some of us were struggling his main concern was that we comprehend the material that was being presented in class as opposed to just 'completing the work' and not understanding it.
Informative emails and discussions on laulima.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes. Good experience in this writing intensive course.
Mr. Polley? yes. Linguistics as an online course? probably not, I think most concepts would have been easier to grasp if they were explained face to face. What specifically comes to mind is the chapter on articulatory phonetics.
I would because he is knowledgable and fair. However, I felt a disconnect from the material because it was so technical, and this is a topic I have great interest in. I wish there had been more real-world examples to make it all relevant to our everyday lives.
Sure
Yes yes yes. He's a really fair teacher.
Yes, because he was a very informative teacher
I would if the student was very interested in the subject, do not recommend taking this class if you just need the credit you will fall behind.
Yes. Professor Polley's class is not the easiest and there is a lot of work to be done but I recommend his class because your really get a chance to learn the material, if and when you struggle he is always there to help clarify things.
Yes, he is very helpful and truly cares about the success of his students.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
n/a
Nice job
He is just a very nice guy from what it seems from emails and class discussions.
He is one of the few professors who is passionate about what he does, teaching. Many of the professors that I have had in the past know their subject so well but they lack the passion that it takes to teach it to us students. Professor Polley is an outstanding teacher whose dedication to teaching has inspired me to want to learn this semester. I only wish there were more teachers like him, we lucked out. Thank you professor for such a great class!
Makes linguistics more interesting and easier to understand.
18. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
n/a
The information learned from the textbook was very valuable, but very intense. It was sometimes a lot to take in, even in one week. The homework assignments were excellent ways to practice what we learned.
Where we had to learn more about other languages
The importance of language, at first I thought we should all just speak English, but I understand that all languages are equally important.
everything
Everything.
19. Which aspects of the course were least valuable?
n/a
While I enjoyed the language observations, I felt these were the least valuable aspects of the course.
N/A
I felt all of it was pretty valuable.
n/a
None
20. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
n/a
I would only ask for more examples of work in the homework assignments.
Find an easier article to read or other means for learning phonetics.
Nothing should be improved
He is a great teacher if you seek for his help.
n/a
None
21. What two or three single words best describe this instructor?
reasonable, kind, caring
n/a
fair understanding prompt
Cool teacher
Smart nice
passionate & dedicated
Helpful, lenient, awesome
22. What changes would you make in the discussion sections?
It was a good idea to have students split up the discussions due for the week, but I do feel like in some situations it is easier to meet the requirements within 1-2 posts.
It seemed like a lot of people (myself included sometimes) would just write enough to get the points and not really read other peoples input, which doesn't really make it a discussion. It would have been interesting to have a few starting off thoughts or questions from Mr. Polley for each discussion so there was a conversation already in place before any students even got there.
I liked the discussion sections, but a prompt or two (non-obligatory, but for guiding purposes mostly) would be nice
500 words a week may be too much to be required
none if all students participate in the discussion we could all learn more about the subject.
n/a
Nothing

14. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
He is so helpful, fair, and knowledible about his area.

15. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
I don't see any suggestions for changes... He is awsome.
na
16. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Whenever he emails me/us, he always says "Please ask me anything when you have a question!" Also, He takes time to go through all of our assignments to give us feedback. I can tell he doesn't just only give grades. He sees us in details.
mr polley made himself readily available for anyone who needed help or clarification on anything.
17. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes! First, he is very helpful to learn. He is always with us. Also, he is passionate for his area, and knowledgble.

18. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Thank you very much for your lecture. It wasn't easy to keep up with all assignments, but I felt you are always with us, it helped me to keep my pace to think about contents in linguistic, and finish up those assigmnents.
Your HW and Final essay are too much hard.

I didn't get a chance to think about language so much,but I realized how I'm interested in learning language. Although I've been putting aside to learn my third language, I think it's time to start. Thank you for great opportunity to think about both linguistic and myself!
