13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I thought the assignments were appropriate and were on good topics.
Professor Loren explains well online, he is very descriptive when explaining the assignments. Professor Loren made eng 100 online fun like you are in class. He is a super teacher, very understanding and he knows how to teacher online.
I enjoyed taking this class because I have learned more about the writing process and how to develop my writing into a higher skill.
The assignments at times was quite confusing for me but with the assistance from Mr. Mitchell I was able to attain the knowledge that was needed to understand what was being taught.
I like how it was stressed and important to do a detailed outline before writing out the essay. Having a detailed outline is important to organize ideas, as it is an important step in the writing process. I used to never write outlines, thinking it was extra and too much work. However, having an outline
First of all i would like to say that this class was a bit of roller coaster ride for me. But Professor Mitchell did a great job in motivating us to stay strong and to not give up, and before you know it the semester was over and its like we just started. I enjoyed his class very much because he made the class a little bit more enjoyable and the fact we could see him in person rather than only online, made things easier.
The activities and assignments were hard to understand but I like that he was a little prepared.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
I think that Professor Loren is very well educated and no doubt an expert at English writing, but I feel online teaching is not one of his strengths. I found that the majority of the time I was confused and at time unknowingly learning bad habits or was doing things incorrect until it was too late. I did not like that we had to rely on peers to edit our rough drafts. At times no one edited mine, and the rest of the time I got half hearted responses where the student was either unsure about the response or just trying to fore fill the peer review requirement. Then when it came down to turning in the Final Draft, our scores suffered deeply. I feel that professor Loren could have spent more time either reviewing/ skimming over rough drafts to catch critical errors so the students could learn the correct way before it was too late. I felt that when I emailed him, he did not read my emails all the way through and only responded to half of it. I felt that I was too needy or a burden on the professor when I had a question. I have taken other online classes before and I have never felt so confused and helpless. Again Professor Loren is very knowledgeable, but I don't think he should be teaching any online classes. I felt like I did all the teaching myself in which I learned things poorly or incorrectly. To be fair this class is labeled as a "hybrid" where there was a single session per week where student could bring questions to class. I was unable to attend these since I had to work on Mondays.
None.
None needed.
None
More time for students, better feedback, helps when a student asks.
15. Other comments:
Thank you Professor Loren for not only a well taught semester, but also for all the help and guidance that you have given me to have a better understanding of the subject. You are the bomb!!!!!!
Thank you & Have a great summer!

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I enjoyed writing essays because it helps me with my grammar.
I enjoyed the essays. Although I failed an essay it was easy to get back on track to get a good grade. Loren Mitchell is a very good professor when it comes to writing.
I enjoyed the stories that we had to write about.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Try to keep the last essay away from the final exam essay
Don't grade so harshly. Especially right from the first paper. Corrections and suggestions are cool but the grading was very harsh for an English 100 class. Bad grades usually do not always motivate students to try harder.
If it is a internet class or hybrid. Please try to email back to students faster because replying back on the night of homework is due is really hard to do.
15. Other comments:
The teacher is a really nice guy who has a ton of writing skill. He just needs to know that everyone is not going to write in HIS style. Lectures would be better if he did not repeat what he said every class for the first 6 weeks about how to use the website. He is good at improving a students writing skills but not so much at keeping a class motivated.

I like quizzes because it is fun to study and take quizzes. That is only I really enjoying it.
I learn a lot from this class on how to do assignment and dump it in a box which I have never done once in my life, and it also help me to learn on how to response to fellow classmate to review papers and the professor is always there for all of us to help us with our problems when we don't know how to figure it out.
Group projects
Professor Loren is awesome! It was a pleasure to be in his class. I enjoyed his teaching methods and his constant feedback. He gives the online experience a whole new meaning! I wish all instructors could be as involved in their in their online courses as Professor Loren. I especially enjoyed his always being there to answer questions and direct us in the right direction. His criticisms are encouraging and constructive. I wish he taught higher level classes so I can continue to be in his class!
The discussion boards helped out a lot.
I have greatly improved my writing skills in english. The projects and assignment provided so much useful information that was understood easily.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Maybe you can try to change the deadline date due on Friday instead on Wednesday. It is hard to keep up with schedule when it is due on Wednesday.
None
None, already an awesome class!
Nope.
Improve the use of the website. The website had many complications. I would have several times in a day where i wasn't able to turn in an assignment due to technical errors.

Mr. Mitchell is a great instructor. I feel that I have learned a lot from his class. If needed to get ideas from him for a paper he is very helpful.
being able to revise our papers
he is great teacher and i enjoy the way he teaches.
Professor Mitchell was a very good teacher and taught me about writing both in class and on my own work. There were no difficult assignments besides the essays but it was the essays that helped me become a better writer.
I like Mr. Mitchell's teaching style. He is very down to earth and approachable. I am glad I took his class.
Nothing
I really enjoyed the assignments that involved group work . Made learning fun and enjoyable.
I liked that MR. Mitchell started class on time, group activities were effective, and when we had questions he was available to help us in or outside of class.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
Loren seemed dedicated to teaching this course. I was impressed by the detail and attention he gave to each student. I doubt most teachers would put in the time and effort. I learned a lot and thought the course was very enjoyable. Glad I took the course.
I like that Loren Mitchell has step by step teach us how to write an essay to the college standers. He such a great teacher.
Nothing
I liked that we had class discussions about the papers that we had to do.
well arranged
I liked this class because now I am able to write formally. I also learned how to write essays. Today I am confident with my self to write. I thank Loren Mitchell for teaching me well.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
one think could have been improved. The State spends a lot of money on email and ftp AKA Loulima ... I would suggest that he learn how to use these valuable resources. They offer classes on how to effectively use it. I find it very strange to spend 100 bucks on a course key just to access something that the students already pay for and most already know how to use. I found it difficult to use yourwirttingclass for email and updates. I hardly ever checked it. As that is why we have state ID's and Email via Gmail. It's very easy to use Gmail.
No I really like everything that he teaches us.
No
No.
more explanations
No I think Loren is doing a awesome job at teaching this course. I don't see a need for any change or improvement.
15. Other comments:
I think the Essay 1, should be DONE ASAP in the class and graded and returned so that you don't make the same mistakes on Essay 2. Since obviously if you don't know what formatting errors you made on E1, they will just be carried over to E2.
No
Mitchell was great!
none
Good job Professor Loren.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I like how essays were set up in steps so that it was easier for me to stay on track.
Mitchell is a great instructor, every essay assigned was practical.
Reading the short stories & writing essays about them.
Instructor was clear, and communication was excellent. I also really liked the website we used. Much better than Laulima.
The professor is willing to help the student understand the material. The professor teaches at a superior college level.
I liked reading the short stories and writing essays on them they were interesting.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
It would be helpful if there was a concise list of action items for each week. Many weeks I found I had to pour through several pages of documents (often in different locations) to distill the handful of things I needed to accomplish for the week. The lack of organization in this regard is wasteful to students' time.
None.
None.
In the beginning of the class we had practice quizzes and exercises; I think more of those would have helped me in understanding some of the lessons better.
15. Other comments:
Honestly, I don't like writing essays and I put off this course because of that reason. However, I had so much fun in this class. I really feel like Professor Michell cared that we did well and he was always really good about giving good advice. Two of my friends recommended his class and I'm glad I listened to them. I wish all my teachers were like Loren.
Mitchell is a great instructor.
Professor Loren is the best English teacher!!!
One of the best courses Iʻve ever taken. I learned so much and I feel a lot more confident in my writing skills. Mahalo, Professor, Mitchell!

Nothing. Very disorganized. I rather he use Laulima like all other teachers! The bedford site is to confusing!
I like the fact he was lenient but flexible on homework and very understanding.
It is so funny that I did not like English. Taking this course allowed me to understand it more. Thanks professor Loren
The flexibility with online course.. The Professor is very positive with feedback, and helpful if you take the time to ask for help!
He was a really good teacher and had alot of material for us to do and learn from.
Too much work. I felt stressed and overwhelmed throughout the entire semester. And it was only this class that made me DISLIKE college.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
USE LAULIMA!!!!
If there could be a little more schedule time of student and teacher interaction.
Hopefully he will make this a Hybrid courseâ?¦ Learning English 100 online is never a easy task.
15. Other comments:
This was an interesting class for me to dive into after not battening school for 10+ years.
Professor Loren was very helpful to me. I put in A LOT of time and effort into this course.. Not easy but if you work hard you will do well!
Although I struggled with writing, I am capable of writing essays in my own way. I don't feel that I should be penalized for not writing it in the correct format. There was WAY TOO MUCH assignments. Wouldn't recommend any student taking this course. Sorry!!!!

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I liked the discussions the most. Being able to get quick feedback from a peer or professor Loren helped me to know if I were or were not on the right track.
The course was very productive. I found the weekly quizzes over certain chapters of the book very helpful, when they were assigned. I feel that I am a better writer after completing the course.
The essays were interesting. You had to do a lot of thinking about each step and how you were going to make it to the final draft. It was not easy but helped me learn some about better writing techniques.
This class was a great experience for me in all aspects.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Definitely go a little more slower, especially for these online courses. Toward the end of the course I had trouble applying what I learned to my essays because I did not have the time to soak it all in and fully understand the content.
I think that the weekly chapter quizzes would have been more productive and helpful in learning about writing. I felt that without the quizzes I was less likely to read the chapters. Also, I think that it would help to have the grades in, in a timely manner for every assignment I turned in.
Give a longer time frame for the final exam. Two hours was way too short for my brain to turn in a completed essay. Give it three hours minimum or four to be safe. I was forced to rush and by the end was so stressed I couldn't even think straight let alone make corrections. I feel disappointed that I submitted incomplete and terrible final after a whole semester of learning.
No.
15. Other comments:
Overall, I enjoyed having you as my English professor. You definitely pushed me. It made me realize that I can do this thing called writing. I still have some anxieties about writing but I am way better than I was coming into this course. I am actually able to write an essay! For that I say a big MAHALO!
Very challenging, almost gave up mid-term.
Professor Loren knows his stuff and shares his knowledge very liberally with everyone in the discussion topics and grading. His grading was so thorough that it could be overwhelming. He is also pretty fair and encouraging and reminds everyone that he there for everyone to succeed in the class.
Loren Mitchell makes all other professors look like deadbeats. I am very thankful to have had the opportunity to take his class.

Loren Mitchell made this course enjoyable. I have had him in the past and he is the reason why I am taking his Eng. 100 course. He is easy to talk to and helps me understand the subject.
Loren was always helping is and giving attention to the students who needed help. Very well at teaching us the skills, he was very clear and made sure we did well.
I learn how to do a research paper. Also to work under pressure.
Professor Loren helped me to become a better and more confortable writer!!! Writing essays are now a little easier!!Thank you so much.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I liked his way of teaching it was easy to understand.
this is the most i have ever learned about english. i was really surprised on all the stuff i learned. i never knew what a verb was untill this class.
I learned so much, especially on commas.
I enjoyed learning from this professor. He explained all material in great detail and it was very understandable.
professor Loren made the class want to do all the assignments, and he explains all the work clearly and interesting. he is a good English teacher.
Professor Loren is a great writing teacher and helped me improve on my writing skills a whole lot. He has a great way of teaching and is very straight to the point and knows exactly how to make things clear when lost or unsure of how to go about something. He is an awesome writing teacher and he gave me a lot of confidence to write a paper knowing I can correct it myself. (:
I enjoyed every moment while in this class. Professor Loren is outgoing and very understandable. When ever I misunderstood something he was always willing to clarify them. He also gave good lectures that helped me especially now that we are writing easy's
nothing
He allowed us to get work done on our own pace which was really affective!
Though, I may speak English, I have appreciated this course and Professor Mitchell's continued assistance in trying his best for me to fully understand the text and course. Thank you, Professor Mitchell, most appreciated.
I really liked that we were assigned to do six essays (yes I am weird) because I was able to practice different types of writing essays. For examples, the cause and effect essay, the compare and contrast essay, the research paper, and so on.
Loren Mitchell is a great teacher.His very helpful to all the students in class, and I am proud of him because he cares about his students.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
No
I think we should have a specific tutor for our class, at least one or two.
no need

instructor not so anal
None.
Maybe add in a little extra credit

Going to the tutor really improved my grades!

It taught me how to write a proper essay. Also refreshed me on verbs, adverbs, nouns, fragments, etc.
This class had taught me a lot about writing in different ways and different essays that will help me in the future. Teacher was very understandable and explained assignments. Just by doing the assignments I have learned that when you write and essay you need to patient and understand the assignment.
the essays were cool
My writing skills have really improved!
Professor Loren is an excellent teacher. He makes understanding the assignments and activities fun and easy. I would take his course again!

The only thing in which I found really difficult was my essay 5. Very confusing and complicated for me.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I really enjoyed the analogy short stories from our Points of View book and learning and actually doing the "writing process" about the stories Loren Mitchell had assigned to the class.
Writing a lot of essays helped me learn all my major errors.
I have learned how to write my essay efficiently.
I like the challenge in this course! Very effective instructor!
The essays were alright, not as hard as I expected.
Proffesor Mitchell is the best english teacher ever. He teaches where the students learn and want to come to class. I had him for eng 22 and now for eng 100 I always recommend student to take him for any eng class.
The activities we had in class has helped me in improving my writing skills. It's helped me understand the purpose of each punctuation mark and how it should be used properly. The multiple essays, involving the peer reviews has helped in making my writing better and with the tips he has given, it has only improved more.
A lot of work, but the instructor is very awesome. Enjoyed it!
I liked everything about this class, the writing and especially the peer review. I enjoyed the last essay--researching on a chosen topic. It made me motivated to research and write a great paper.
I liked the writing assignments.
i really liked the discussion forums for the class
The assignments.
The essays really help to develop a writing style that would only prove to serve a student well into college. Great preparation for research! It was challenging and demanding work though.
He had a clear objective of what he wanted us to accomplish.
This course really help me strengthen my writing ability.
Interesting assignments. I learned a hell of a lot.
Mr. Mitchell is the best English teacher! He is very passionate about teaching! He teaches English the correct way(not the easy way)!
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
None it was awesome
I am content.

NOne
N/A
To have time in class to do prewriting.
None,it was a good class!
The thing that was really hard for me to adapt to was how our week was scheduled. Since I don't have a computer at home, I usually try to get all my work done from Mon-Fri since the library is closed on Saturday and I don't go in on Sundays. Our weeks, however, started in the middle of the week and we mostly had due dates on Saturdays, sometimes Sundays. This schedule was kind of hard for me to slip into but other than that I thought this class was great and very effective.
He is a great teacher and is willing to help you, but the online website that he uses has a lot of glitches.
No. Professor Mitchell does a great job.
It was an incredible amount of work. I thought on-line classes would help me save some time but it did the opposite. It was wayyyyyyy too much work! I think I would have done much better if I took the in-class class. I was really grateful that he dropped the endless weekly quizzes, sometimes more than 10 and they had lots of questions involved. I had no choice but to devote a huge chunk of time for this class which caused a great deal of stress. Overall, he is a great instructor! To be successful in college, one needs to be able to write and submit good paperwork and he is very good at catching everything! Professor Microscope!
Cut down on the amount of Essays.
Having rough drafts peer reviewed was sometimes not very helpful. It felt like other students were just trying to complete their assignment and not really offer help. While submitting a paper to the tutoring offered is helpful, what is important to them is not necessarily what Professor Loren is looking for. I think it would be really helpful to point out some of the common mistakes that students make when starting class. For example, on my first paper I got a 75 because I had a lot of pronoun disagreements. While I am not expecting the instructor to point out every mistake, because how would we learn, but it would be nice to have a some feedback before final paper is turned in by the instructor. Maybe if the teacher would see this, they could warn a student on what they need to work on. Once the paper was returned, we knew what we needed to keep an eye out for, but by then we have already received our final grade.
It might be nice if we could cycle the essays in one more time before final draft. There just might not be enough time though.
The course is perfect the way it is!

Thank you for all of your help with this class. you expected a lot from your class but you helped up achieve great goals in our writing.
great teacher, wish I took his class on campus rather than online though.
Great Professor.
Mitchell is a very good teacher, I would recommend his class if you really want to learn something. He grades fairly and was very encouraging.
I thought an online class would work for me because of it's flexibility, but was I wrong. I won't be making that mistake twice.
What class is he offering next semester.

Working together with my fellow classmates and having to share each of our opinions to each other according to the assignment that is assign by this instructor.
The way he brings energy into the room right as he enters and makes everybody wake up and get their gears turning.
N/a
assignments were do able.
Mr. Loren Mitchell is a very good instructor.He communicates with his student very clearly. For his assiggments,are very jus.
I like the fact that I have learned alot about writing and the different words to use and not to use in a sentence. Also,writing paragraphs in forms of the three specific details that support the paragraph.
that if a student gets sick or has family issues that he can understand
i like the fact that I noticed a difference in my English grammar
none
I liked about this course was I did the homework first, and then Loren Mitchell did with all of the students together in the class about our homework. He also explained to us how to do the homework. I also liked this course because he is a kindness, generous, and flexible teacher.
I enjoyed his teaching techniquesa and how he was there to help
the way he teach, and his great than other instructors in english 20w.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Have a little more time doing all paper assignments.
NONE! Jus need A/C in the morning in the room. gets really stuffy.
N/A

I like to have some grammar examples to write in the board, so I will more understand how to write a good paragraph.
I honesylt enjoyed the class I really am confident that I will pass the course this time around.
15. Other comments:
Everything was fun.
Did not like him very much.
I really love how he teaches. Because it can make me understand more clearly about what the course is about. Everything was well-prepared and how he followed the syllabus.
GIVE HIM A RAISE!!
I dont even have your class, but i will just evaluate it
English was never really my strong point in school. But I have learned a lot from this past semester. You are a cool teacher and I am looking forward to seeing you next semester:)
Great teaching.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
i liked the fact that the essays were somewhat spread apart and we had enough time to work on it individually.
I liked how he grades the essays very thouroughly. You can tell he puts a lot of time to provide feedback so you can improve on the next essay. I also like how he does his own research and helps you as much as possible when you have questions.
I liked the in class essays and the amount of work that you gave us, it was an adequate amount!
It might sound corny, but I liked everything. I was prepared to take this course, and he is an amazing Instructor. What he explained to the class actually stuck with me when I got home. That did not happen to me in High School. I learned about using the word "would" properly. I learned about citing quotes in-text. I learned how to indent properly. I learned about short quotes and long quotes. I learned many different things that I will always remember because of Instructor Mitchell.
I liked the assignments and how I was notified of every assignment in the beginning of the semester
I like the time and support we are fiver for each project and assignment.
Just an average english class.
I was a student that never liked English but with the help and useful material used in class the assignments that were hard and challenging to me came along better then I thought. I was able to finish assignment on time.
One of the best classes, some things were harder to pick up, but he made it easier to understand them.
Loren is a n interesting teacher. Sometimes a little unconventional but effective and lively. His class is always positive feeling. He is strict but able to be flexible when point in question is justified.
I like the teacher alot!
What I enjoyed the most was working in groups.
the assignments on the ebook thing were helpful to gain knowledge and it was user-friendly. the assignments were challenging and brought the best out of me
I really enjoyed the discussion forums because I like how we were able to interact with the other students as well as Professor Mitchell. In the assignments, Professor Mitchell allowed us to respond to the other student's messages and I felt a close bond with my classmates. It is really motivating!
The ability to learn in a comfortable environment.
He helped me so much when I have a problem with assignments by email. I appreciate it!
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
nothing at all Professor!
I know this is going to sound even worse, but I think it is a perfect course. He grades everyone equally, and you can tell that he is still passionate about what he does. He is interesting to watch, and he makes me laugh! You can really sense this connection with him, a professional one.
nope, it's pretty good
No online homework, all straight hand out paper and book
No improvements, I thought this course was really helpful to me
More fun stories when possible
Um, more class discussions
Show more examples of in text citations.
not much, our teacher is pretty damn good. maybe our professor could bring cookies, other than that, class was awesome.
I guess it was just all the quizzes interfering with the time to do the essays, but I know that there is not much time for the semester and so much for us to learn.
no
It was a little bit hard to see the schedules because of so many words in the schedules.
15. Other comments:
I would take him again if I needed another English course
You are a good teacher and I respect you a ton!
Instructor Mitchell is amazing. He is so amazing that I am actually taking one of his classes again in Spring! He is my favorite Instructor because of his focus, and how he reaches his students.
n/a
Professor Loren you are the man!
Great professor!!!
Professor Loren, You are an awesome teacher! I really enjoyed your class, and I appreciated all of your help and feedback. It was nice to see how much I improved over the semester, and it was all thanks to you!
Thank you Professor Mitchell for believing in all of us! Although we constantly send you email during your break times, you always find the time to respond back. I know I have not been perfect with my essays, but I like how you did not give up on my abilities because I know I can write a great essay. I have your motivation, but I just need to be more motivated for myself. Thank you for everything Professor!
I just cannot thank you enough! Your helps saved me. I will do my best for rest of this class!

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I like the way the instructor taught the class. He took his time to teach us the right way of the writing process. I wanted him to teach an English 100 in class next semester but he only has it online. If he did I would have taken it from him. You guys should get more instructors like him.
I liked the in-class activities, such as the in-class grammar exams, because they reinforced what we were learning about in class that day. So the things we needed to learn got more imbedded into are head. I also was glad that Professor Loren was very open about what the semester was going to be like.He never tried to scare us, or force to much on us. Professor Loren was also willing to help out before, during, and after class if we needed it. Loren is a very passionate teacher, that deserves a raise.
I liked learning how to write a three point thesis. Professor Loren is personable and he made the course fun and easy to learn what the writing process is all about. I think the skills I learned in this course will help me in all the other courses I take.
i feel that all activities,projects and assignments were very appropriate for this class.
I believe the way Professor Loren Mitchell had teached mu Eng22 class was very precise. He explained things into the correct steps that was very understanding. Without his clear explainations I would never learned writing an essay.
One of the best teachers i ever had! Loren Mitchell explained things really well and made it understandable for his student. He always answers any questions that we have and gives us great feedback on our work so whe know what we need toimprove on.
I really like learning how to write a good essay
I really enjoyed the instructor. He made his lectures short and sweet, his basic examples of sentences was effective, and I learned how to write appropriately.
The Feedback and letting us fix up our essays
I like that Mr. Loren Mitchell was well organized in giving his lectures and on time class sessions. I love to write with his help on how to write properly has made me more aware of how I write, what is expected of me by the way I word my writing, and which way is ok to express myself.
the pressure to complete essasys in one classs period thru all the steps of the writing process
Great Teacher!
He's a cool and funny guy. He can help everyone if they needed help.
I like how Mr. Mitchell teach the class. He wants to make that students learn how to write a clear and correct essay paper.
Peer reviews were great, gave us the opportunity to work with our classmates. Online Homework was pretty informative.
I liked that he covered basically everything. The course work was kind of meshed together but overall it was good.
I enjoyed everything we did in this course
Professor Mitchell is a great teacher who breaks things down so everyone can understand it!
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
It would be nice if the essay's were numbered in the order they are handed out.
I had a really hard time at the practice final this week. The problem is that I am used to writing my papers on a computer where I find it is much easier than having to write the paper in longhand. If a computer could be used during the final exam I think my ability to write a better paper would greatly improve and that it would serve all students, including myself, better. What about using the computers at Hale Kea?
no.
no
None
Keep this guy teaching.
less Essays i'd say
There is no need of improvement for the course other then showing up on time as a student and keeping up with your work.
None.
New up to date topics for our essays wouldve been more effective I think.
No.
15. Other comments:
Prof. Mitchell was AWESOME>>>
It was hard work, but Professor Loren told it would be. He was thorough and from the beginning clear about what was expected of us. He gave great pep- talks about ways to look at and ways to approach our assignments. He simplified things which along with the tools we had learned gave us the confidence that we could do it, and that it really wasn't that hard. And then it wasn't that hard, and it was somehow easier. He walked us through the writing process step by step, like a seasoned guide. I learned writing is fun and exciting and something I really enjoyed doing.
idk
Mr. Loren Mitchell you have done an awesome job this semester glad to have been in your class mahalo for the opportunity to learn from you nothing but growth from here on out. Aloha
he was super helpful
Excellent professor! Very passionate about teaching.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
This class had 6 essays. I wrote an essay per week, so It was hard. However, my writing skill was improved. I like this hard works. There were some reading assignments for essays, so my reading skill was also improved.
Professor Mitchell helped shape my skills as a writer and I'm sure i'll be able to apply the skills obtained in this class to life.
I liked the discussions conducted in class. I thought they were very useful and fun.
I personally dislike English. Prof Mitchell taught me more then I thought I could learn in English in such a short period of time. I enjoyed the group discussions and the criticism on my essays. I could see my improvement from week to week and that made me more confident from the first essay that I completed. Thank You, Jobe Leialoha
This couse was really nice for me because I learned many things from ENG100.
Professor Loren is well prepared and the class was extremely helpful to me.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
I would suggest less essays. I know that you need to fit all of the normal work into 6 weeks, but writing a paper of 1,000 words almost every other day is ridiculous.
Nothing.
15. Other comments:
Other then the work load, the class was very enjoyable. I enjoyed Prof. Mitchell. He was enthusiastic about teaching and that translated very well. I really learned a lot during this class. Thank you!
Thank you very much to teach how to write the essay. I really appreciate your kindness and attitude for us.

Prof. Mitchell pushed us and enouraged us not to give up. Positive reinforcement with the feedback was useful
I liked the writing assignments.
I liked that this instructor really knew and understand the different writing styles that is needed when attending college. This really help me write better and have better structure when writing.
I like the discussion forums because it helped me see feedback and what other think of my posts. I also liked the quizzes because it helped me to learn how to write an essay in the appropriate way.
Professor Mitchell is an excellent teacher and tries his best to assist in any possible way.
I like everything about Lorenʻs class.
I liked the modules we had to do.
The knowledge I gained from the material presented, and the way the Discussion questions related to the weekly assignment.
Mr. Mitchell, great teacher. Very supportive. Very positive. Very compassionate for his students. Scale of 1-10. 10+ Keep it up! Your doing a great job! English isn't my favorite subject. I tried my best. I would recommend you to other students to take your class. Aloha
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Uggh! so Much work besides the Essays, so dizzying. So much material to cover in a semester. I took Eng 100 about 20 years ago and got an 'A'. So much has changed (MLA9). Midway in the semester I actually forgot how to use a comma.
No
This course had a load of work to do and lots of reading between books. Maybe this class type requires it, but sometimes its too much. There was a lot of in between writing and lots of uploading onto my computer.

Explain how to use the class website better, in more detail.
Have IT figure out which browser works best with Bedford.....I think it is internet explorer. Those of us who take courses online are advised to use firefox but the English course he teaches does not work properly on firefox.
Nope. I think i had a hard time because it was an online class.
15. Other comments:
This class was quite challenging. The instructor is quite critical and rightfully so considering this is an English writing class. I'm not sure if I would consider this an introductory course because it was so critical. It felt to me more like a refining writing class if you want to become an English major.
Prof Mitchell did an excellent job. He made adjustments along the way to help students be successful in this class. Thank you.
Overall, this course isn't easy. Lots of focus and concentration and determination to finish out this course. I felt that there were too much work going on for this course and I hope I pass.
Great semester!
I have learned so much in your class. Thank you!
Thank you for sharing your knowledge Professor.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
this course was very hard for me. i went through a lot of personal problems which i let prevent me from focusing on Mr. Loren teaching. i am very sad and dissapointed in the way i handled my self this semester.
I liked the work. It wasn't too difficult nor was it to easy. The work was well thought out and was able to help me in my English reading class.
I really liked that we stayed on course with the syllabus. It was very easy to follow and allowed me to keep up with all assignments and deadlines. The website we used worked very well also. A little technical difficulties, but overall the website was very useful. Loren is an EXCELLENT teacher. His methods are clear and he is very helpful and understanding. He is stern when he needs to be and has grace when it is needed. I learned a lot of useful things and found out my strengths and weaknesses in writing. I really enjoyed this class and I am glad to know that I will be leaving this class with more knowledge and confidence about writing. I feel that my money was well spent on this class.
I enjoyed taking quizzes with the power point presentations. The power points may not look appealing, but is gets its points across real well. I also enjoyed the peer editing classes. This gives students the time they need to work with one another. Most of all, I enjoyed having online homework. The online homework is very simple yet effective. Even though I missed many of these assignments, I still enjoyed and learned allot from the ones I did complete.
I like that Mr.Loren has tought me how to properly write an essay.
I liked that the professor explained every aspect of what we were learning thoroughly.
Lorens an awesome teacher! Awesome feedback on my papers! Very easy to talk to! Thanks Loren!
I love my writing class. It bums me out when I miss class though because my grade drops.
My favorite part of this course was the group work because it taught me the value of teamwork. I really like how we as a group got to know each other individually. We started out as strangers and now we are familiar with each other. It was challenging and I did my best!
I liked writing essays that were challenging and able to work in groups.
more class work, less online assighnment..
I enjoyed learning about how to write good essays. It changed my whole my of writing. Because of Mr Loren I know different writing techniques and the four major errors.
Professor Loren uses good examples to explain class discussions that helps us to understand the tools of writing an essay. He has gone over every material that we needed help on and answered all our questions regarding english 22.
I like that we got into groups to help one another with understanding the reading concepts and skills
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
i wish Mr. loren would've been more aggressive in teaching earlier in the semester. like, drill us all the way. his ''slow in the begining and pump it up half way through'' was not effective enough for me to grasp his teaching. maybe if i only had 2 classes instead of 3 then i could've done better. trial n error
Try more group work. Some lectures were a bit much.
N/A
Yes, we should get to go on an excursion somewhere relevant to English22.
It was a challenging course and Professor Mitchell made this essay more than just a one page essay because we had to write out our essays in the write format and every little detail counted which made it difficult but from Professor Mitchell's point of view, it is acceptable because he was a journalist and we did all of our essays based on his experiences so I would not change anything about this course.
Let students revise their papers. How are they going to learn from their mistakes?

Thanks Professor Mitchell!
keeping my fingers crossed, not looking forward for the finals next week.
Thank you very much, Professor Mitchell, for your outwardness and ease of teaching this particular course. I will always be appreciative of your help and guidance through this memorable journey that will never again be taken, lightly. The many excruciating hours of lecturing and time spent trying to make sense of those lectures has given me a wider range of understanding the different types of writing skills there are and how each has it's own use in the today. I've learned a lot but there is more out there to be learned. Your teaching has been inspirational and educational, to say the least. May you have a safe and enjoyable summer, along with the wife, Deanna. God bless you and yours, and thanx doc.
YOU DA BEST NO KA OI.........
Mr. Loren is one of the best english professors I ever had.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I learned and developed the writing process. I read the chapters and realized how important it was to understand. Professor Mitchell provided examples. He is like a "human dictionary" when it came to English 100 and he is thorough and encouraging. He provided a way to seek the help a student needed by the materials and power-point messages, and he gave other access to learn the material well. He praised the student for their efforts, he corrected fairly, he explained where the errors were, and he provided each page of identifying where the student could improve on. I don't think I have come across any instructor who possesses so much wisdom and interest in his students the way Professor Mitchell does. Sometimes he encourages the student to really take the time to understand the concepts of each chapter before moving on and I and have recommended his course to other peers. That's because Professor Mitchell understands the individual needs and he will offer help to discuss the matter and is open and unbiased.
Projects were a bit extensive, however Loren Mitchell was always ready to help me and answered alot of questions for me
Mr. Mitchell is an outstanding instructor and did a great job teaching this course. I would recommend this course to other students, great instructor and course.
I liked that we did not jump right in to writing papers, we learned about how to write them first.

I feel that Professor Mitchell teaches excellence, a higher standard because he believes in our abilities. I am encouraged, inspired, and enjoy his techniques. I have to say that Professor Mitchell is absolutely knowledgeable and is supportive in any way possible to make this course work for all students, especially since I have used the tools learned in my other courses and excelled! Thank you.
Loren Mitchell is a very devoted English teacher!

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
Class participation was a key component. Professor Mitchell made learning english a interesting thing. His methods of teaching were enjoyable.
Like how he had explained of how to make the basic structure of an essay to professional standards. I also liked the different topics he assigns to the essay styles.
that he brok it down for us on how to write an essay.very good a explaining things.
The one thing I liked about this course was the written essays. The topics for the essays were interesting and that motivated me to write. I learned a lot of things about writing and it really helped me not only in this class but in my others as well.
what i liked about professor loren mitchells class was he understood that sometimes i couldnt comprend some of the material that was given out but he made it clear for me to the point that i understood what was happening and yeah . I also loved that if you did really bad in an essay that you could revise for a better grade or as he call "aiming for the primo" . the assignments to me were alright the online ones i liked because i was basically doing it on my own . i think i did better if i was by myself then with a crowd.
having online home work and not only book work.,.
I enjoyed writing essays. I liked all of the different types of essays we got to write and all the topics we got to choose from.
I liked the way Professor Loren set up his curriculum.He introduced each section in a timely manner allowing his students to become familar with each part.
He was very straight up, and thats what young adults need.
The writing skills of every student that attended class every day definitely improved on their writing abilities. The way Mr. Mitchell broke down the writing process will not be forgoten easily.
Everything was good!
I liked all of the assignments. Professor Loren was an excellent instructor.
Even though the essays were a little hard, I still enjoyed the class, and I feel that I learned a lot.
this course will prepare the students to write correctly.
What I liked about this course is that it help me fully understand the steps in the writin process and how it is used.

Very awesome teacher all around. He tried to help us in every way possible. He worked with us to help us even when we missed class! Nice and leniant teacher but very strict on his grading which I found to be even better. Mr.Mitchell never overloaded us work but gave us a good amount that was possible for us to accomplish and feel confident about completing the assignment. He always went the extra mile!!!! AWESOME! Thanks Mr.Mitchell.
The expectations for this course is a little to much. Class attendance and tardies affect a students grade in this course.
NONE
this class really helped me improve my writing.i belive that if i haddent taken this class i probably would have never understood what a good essay is.
I had a great time while taking this course and the instructor was extremely helpful.
professor loren is a cool teacher but can teach in ways where everyone can understand...
Loren Mitchell is an excellent teacher. I learned a lot from him.
Maybe Professor Loren could open up his availability to his students a little more. Ex: currently he can meet with his students on certain days between certain times. That does not always work for all. There was not enough time before or after class to meet with him. The time we did have felt rushed. Other than that great class, great professor. Still deciding if I should take him for Eng. 100. If I pass Eng. 22 that is!
No comments!
I enojoyed this class.
professor loren is a wonderful teacher who wants all of us to pass. he has a lot of energy and gets us ready. great teacher.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
Professor Mitchell has an obvious passion for teaching. He is highly responsive to all questions or concerns posted by students. He is highly involved in the discussions. He is the most highly skilled, effective and engaged instructor that I have had this semester.
I did not have much confidence in myself to do well in writing. This class has helped my become a little more confident and has taught me good writing skills that will definitely help in my career.
Assignments and homework due weekly, helped retain discipline.
I have met a lot of people in my life time and Mr. Mitchell is by far one of the greatest English Teachers I have had the priviledge to learn from. The college should be grateful for having such a person who loves waking up in the morning to educate his students.
I liked reading short stories from the book. They were interesting. I also liked how we got to choose which essay to write because I understood one story better than the other.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
less homework?
I wish I could have taken Professor Loren's class "in class." I think I would have done better.

While he is my best instructor, I expect to do the poorest in his class among my 4 classes. After falling ill for a couple of weeks, I never quite regained traction. It became very difficult for me to get motivated to write the required essays. (Though I still have a glimmer of hope to be able turn in late work and squeak by with a passing grade.)
I wish I could have met Professor Loren in person. Interesting man.
Course grading as far as essays were a bit tough, but I guess it needed to be.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
He is a good teacher. However, his grading process is to strict. From my perspective, it seems that, you either pass or fail. There is NO in between. He does know his english and he is good at it.
I think the coure that professor Loren Mitchell teachest is a good class. All activities, projects, and assignments are on the syllabus.
I enjoyed Mr. Mitchells teaching methods and I also enjoyed his example stories they were funny and a good learning experience.
I liked Loren's technique of learning the basic steps of the writing process. I am real pleased as to how he can break the process down so we can understand. To me that is AWESOME! I enjoyed the class activities. The class assignments were good in the beginning, until all hell broke loose and there were essay after essay, after essay. Really frustrating to me! but all in all I seemed to try and pull it together.
nothing really
That I could do the work and understand it well
Mr. Mitchell did prepare the class and motivated the class via reviewing the topics and class interaction. I feel that he was sincere and took the time to have the students assess their learning process. His class was essentially pleasant and the teaching methods helped me to understand ENG 22 homework assignments. One thing that I learned was to be present in his class because he offered depth and meaning to each topic and the practices helped improve the progression from each chapter. The syllabus was the preparation and as I followed along, I was never behind. This gave me the confidence to do better each time. I would enroll in his class the next semester if it were available. He is also personable. His examples were easy to follow.
Dr bernard was a great teacher very awesome
He is very relaxed. His assignments are kind of tough, they are doable.
I enjoyed learning about the writing process of an essay. It moled me to be a better writer.
I like the essays and the ways Loren taught. I really learned a lot more than when I first stepped into this class. This class has brought more out of me with writing than I had before, and I really enjoyed it. It has also gave me a new look in pushing to write that children's book or mystery novel I have wanted to write a long time ago.
i liked where we talk as a class on how to correct our essay.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
There is know sugggestions at this time.
Do Not use the real essays website until they get it fixed I had a hard time all semester with this "project" as one might call it.
Not at this moment!
I dont know

I think they only thing he needs to work on is to make sure everybody understands what is going on during the semester.

Thank You Mr. Mitchell for a great semester!
I had a great time in Prof. Loren's class.Good man!
NO!
Thanks for being a good teacher, understanding,and pushing me to be the best I can be. Darryl Brown
English has never been my favorite subject. I was never serious nor attending classes in high school. What I appreciate about Mr. Mitchell is that he taught me the discipline to complete an assignment with confidence. I began to read more and look at sentence structure more closely. When he corrected the errors, I understood the mistakes and reviewed the lesson. Secondly, I used a tutor. Lastly, I now have the skills in English writing and grammar that did not make sense before. He is an excellent teacher!
I am more comfortable talking in front of class and giving speeches. It really reflected in my other classes
He is very good teacher, but i think he can improve on teaching in a class setting. He is very good at helping on a one on one basis. He has a lot of knowledge of writing.
I see a big difference in my writing from when I first started the class till now :).
Thank you so much Professor Loren for all your time and hard work. You have taught me a lot and I appreciate it. I have learned so much in 16 weeks from you. Mahalo again!

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
This class was interesting and pushed me to become a better writer. I think that if taken at the beginning of your college career, Prof. Mitchell and the course material provide a great foundation for success in future classes.
Meeting my classmates, and getting to know them a little bit better, and how we all come to gather to help one another.
All the assignments were great practice for learning the writing skills we covered in our readings. I enjoyed reading the short stories and completing the literary analysis essays. Those helped me a lot with my critical reading skills and analytical writing skills. Also, the weekly discussion board postings and Bedford Handbook exercises were great practice for applying what we read in the book.
They were all very meaningful and relevant; I dislike doing bogus busy work!
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
I honestly was surprised at how challenging this course was! For a 100 level course I think that a lot is required of the students. I do like to be challenged but I think that the English Dept. expectations/requirements are too high!! I think that for students straight out of public high school, the expectation is near perfection. I understand that the class is designed to prepare students for their college careers, but I think it might turn a lot of students off writing and make them feel inadequate. I am a college graduate and have always been a good student (I also only had a total of 9 credits this semester and am not working) and I found it challenging! Maybe a more "growth oriented" approach or a less detail-oriented grading system might benefit and encourage students in the long-run! Writing is very challenging and a life long learning process! Also, maybe one less paper so there is more time at the end for the more heavily weighted research paper
Cut down on some of the assignments, I felt so overwhelmed with all the essay's that was due every week it took up most of my time and made me fall behind on some of my other classes.
Providing a tutor or some other way of communication with someone who could edit papers other than peers would be excellent. I had a very difficult time improving my essays because the peer reviews were inefficient. Its a great concept to have a person edit their peer's essay for the practice, but the peers don't have as trained an eye as a professor or other english tutor does.
Whoa! So much to cover in a short amount of time. No; he is great at even giving us a little break this week! Make it mandatory first semester class so you know how to really write from the start!
15. Other comments:
Prof. Mitchell is a very understanding and supportive teacher. His standards are high but he is very accessible to his students. The nature of online courses does add a little more challenge to stay connected and search out any help needed, but overall I really enjoyed his class!
This course helped me write much more effectively. I think it should be a requirement for all students to take some kind of writing course during the first semester of college.
Professor Loren is the kind of instructor you would like all of your teachers to be! He's quick, he always provides immediate feedback; his feedback is not made to feel like you'll never succeed but only encourages you to do better!Two thumbs up and if I had more, they'd be up too! :)

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I learned a lot from this course. I liked the Mr. Mitchell but to tell you the truth this course is very stressful.
I learned many things on how to write a good essay. I did not know that there were so many rules to writing an essay, but I am glad I learned them because I will need it for my future endeavors.
The freedom of choice with few limitations on topic essay writing.
Professor Mitchell has a very firm but good attitude towards us students. He does try to help us as much as possible. He does need a tutor.
I liked the way he broke everything down in seperate assignments where I could understand as a student. He was very thorough in his teachings. I very much so enjoyed Mr. Loren's class.
I like when he takes time explaining how to do our writing the rite way. He makes sure we understand what we are learning and he gives us time to do our essays. He also explains how our finals may be like for the heads up.
This course helped me better my writing ability and prepare me for college level writting.
Essays were brutal, but I enjoyed learning the steps of the writing process.
practices and online work
Although I felt overwhelmed at times, I learned a lot from his class, such as, recognizing fragments, run-ons, SVA, and verb problems. My writing has improved a great deal from his methods of teaching and assignments. I still could improve more and by the end of the semester I will definitely be a better writer.
i learned alot from the book and online work.
I like the fact that we are able to take our essays home,and revise it ourselves.
In this course the essay assignments helped me to improve my writing. It also made me understand the errors and mistakes i often make in writing paper. In class activities was another enjoyable time in the class. We the students were able to share and interact in teaching each other about improving our essay papers.
i enjoyed being able to read a chapter or two for homework and coming to class for a discussion about it. it helped me to understand what i had read a little better.
Learning the proper way to write an essay is so helpful.
it is very challengeing and it thought me how to write better..i still need to work on my writing but at least i have some experience now..
Loren Mictchell is a great professor. He teaches in a way for students, who may learn in different ways, to understand. Working in groups or as a class helps out!
I enjoyed the examples of how to start a hook.
I enjoyed developing how to write an essay. Practicing the basic steps helped to improve my writing skills. Online homework was a good way to allow students to learn different word usages and word structure.

I like this class because this class was really a challenge to me and for me I really like a challenge so that I can be more hard on myself and determined.
Loren Michell's teaching style is descriptive but simple. This made his class enjoyable for me. But I had trouble contacting him through email, and getting his number to ask for clarification on the essay assignments. He has a great uplifting personality which helped me get through his class.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
On the grading system. I don't agree with it. I don't like that students can do all the assignments, and essays but still not be able to pass the course if they don't pass the final.
Help out each and every student equally
He needs a tutor
Only, for Mr. Loren to continue his good work.
start the essays eariler in the course
None
Great!
No.
He is doing a awesome job for an english teacher.
during lectures use less time using examples of good or bad work. and spend more time lecturing about the assignment.
Make the real essay page the internet be more fun.
In class tutor really can really help out with the coourse.
make essay topics more easier to understand

20. If you were teaching this course: a. What would you do to improve it? b. What would you change?
nothing.
Put a computer with internet access in the room. It made it very hard for Professor Loren to prove points or show examples because of the lack of a computer. There is no excuse why every room in this school should have computers.
nothing, the course is clear and straightforward.
There is no need for improvement.
I would not change a thing.
Nothing. He does a great job and makes it fun at the same time.
Not so many power points and fucking change the damn rules for HCC english students. rewrites should be accepted, writing center should help with punctuation and literature content that students write should be held at almost the same importance as their mechanics.
wouldnt change a thing.
Nothing.
21. What do you think of the teacher and his/her teaching methods?
He is a great teacher. He is fun. I love that he shows how much he loves his job. It made the rest of us wanna love it too.
Professor Loren has a heart of gold. His teaching style for me was fascinating and he motivated me to learn more. I can positively say I understand the MLA Format 100% more than I did in the past. No more plagirizing. Thank you. God has truly blessed you with a special gift!
Prof. Loren is a very good professor who focuses on the key aspects of writing. It is thanks to his teachings that i am able to write as well as i do now.
Mr. Mitchells teaching methods were really good and very understandable!
I think it is very good even if I had some misunderstanding but, that was just me.
His teaching methods are great. He can take hard work and explain it in a way i can understand it.
The HCC regulations made him able to be a lazy teacher. check your freaking email and get back to your students
good because he changed it to help us better understand the work.
Good class for me to take.
22. Has he/she contributed to your general knowledge or to learning job skills?
yes. very much.
Absolutely. The knowledge I gained this semester will hopefully carry all the way to my Doctrate
He has most definitely contributed to my knowledge about writing. From taking his Eng22 and now Eng100, i have learned and fine-tuned a lot of the different writing concepts of english.
Mr. Mitchell helped me improve tremendously on my wrinting skills, and I thank him for that.
Most sure.
Yes.
no
yes, he taught me that if you teach someone what you have just learned, you will plant it in your memory.
Very much so. Thanks Loren.
23. Other comments:
Will recommend others to sign up for his class next semester! I would like to see Professor Loren teach a class on writing as a Newspaper Editor.
Prof. Loren is a very organized and clear professor which makes learning the material easy and straightforward. Although i ended up flaking out due to my own faults, he is very good at what he does and is someone who i would recommend to other students. Keep up the good work Loren!
Mr. Mitchell is a great and wonderful person, who I enjoyed having as and English teacher. He taught me a lot and helped me understand the library system, which has been very useful to me in all my other classes. Thank you very much Mr. Mitchell!
I just wished I had taken his Eng 22.
No other comments.
thanks for this awesome semester.
Maybe what they say is true, and the third time is the charm. I enjoyed being a part of your class, when i could make it. Thanks Loren

20. If you were teaching this course: a. What would you do to improve it? b. What would you change?
Start to use powerpoint visuals a little earlier. More practice exercises in class. Have him go around like he has, but more often, because it demonstrated his interest in the students development and thinking process on the lesson. Unfortunately, there were a few distractions from students who used the class to talk story instead of paying attention to the lesson. His style of teaching was easy, clear and well-defined.
less homework, we had way to much online home work up to 150 questions and we would have to do 1 essay per week with ll materials
I would have more group activities for the upcoming assignments. Our second to the last essay that we wrote we did several group activites. This was helpful to take in the material & use when we write our own essay.
I wouldn't change anytyhing
I think it would be more helpful if the homework assignment on line is assigned after we review the chapter with him in class. I has a difficult time getting the homework correct when I do it before we go over it in class.
Nothing.
21. What do you think of the teacher and his/her teaching methods?
Teaching methods were excellent if a student wanted to be motivated. He used clear, basic reasoning in understanding the lessons and he prepared the class to go further by using the online exercises. He taught and believed that students have the potential to excel. He related well, except some students were behaving disrespectfully, such as, talking a lot between themselves, caused distrations, and I became annoyed by their behavior, yet, Mr. Mitchell was consistent and went on with the lessons. Right on!
Great! He's clear about the assignments and encourages for students to correct & "revise".
I think that Loren Mitchel is a great teacher and has very good methods of teaching
I feel that his teaching method was very helpful and motivating. I enjoyed all the stories and examples he told when he was giving the class examples. I found it very helpful when he replies to my emails. He was always available before of after work when I had questions.
Lorens teaching method is really good and helpful. The way he goes through each thing and doesn't just give assignments in the book i really liked. The way he taught the class has made me a better writer in so many ways.
I think he is a really good teacher. Very friendly and helpful. He know what he's doing and always want his students to do the best they could.
22. Has he/she contributed to your general knowledge or to learning job skills?
I learned how to read and read to understand the text and examples. I take responsibility to discipline myself and he used cultural competency to help us along. He graded fairly.
Yes! Good effective writing.
definitely
I am able to comprehend the materials that I needed to learn
yes he has contributed to my general knowledge.
Yes.
23. Other comments:
If I have a chance to have him in the future, I would want to take his class. The handouts were well defined, especially the Shaka format. He took his time by simply using basic concepts, he answered questions from the students, and was thorough with the lessons. I think he also gave great examples to follow by using other students learning process. I borrowed the examples and it made me feel confident. I got it. I still have errors, but he always writes something positive, and allows the students to rewrite the assignment. I felt encouraged because I could improve my writing skills and strive to improve from the error. What I appreciate from Mr. Mitchell is that he was definitely professional, honest and approachable.
I really enjoyed Loren's class
I am very glad he was my instructor. I felt very comfortable and he was very easy to communicate with.
It was nice being in your class!

nothing
Have some initial exercises that we can receive a few grades on to give the student a sense of how they are doing. That way we know what to work on.
No improvement needed! Keep up the good work! I really enjoyed this semester in English 100.
nothing. perrrrfect. =]
There should be more interesting material to write about. Also more time should be spent on making sure the students understand the material
20. What do you think of the teacher and his/her teaching methods?
It is good, but many of us are confused sometimes. The teacher contradicts himself a lot.
i really enjoyed being in his class he walked my through the writing process
I absolutely enjoyed Professor Mitchell's teaching methods. It was somewhat of a difficult class for me, but in the end,it was well worth it.
Mr. Mitchell has a great method. His teachings are very clear. He was always there to talk and ask questions. He was very helpful. Though his grading is very harsh he always had an explanation.
Really enjoyed the instructor.
Fantastic. He encouraged critical thinking in a positive way that was easy to understand.
his methods are good. just maybe rewrite essay one instead of going to the learning center...
I had a really hard time grasping his concept of teaching a subject that was really hard to understand. There should be more exercises that help students understand the material better. He should also have better lectures that accompany the exercises
21. Has he/she contributed to your general knowledge or to learning job skills?
Yes.
yes
to the up most
yes
Yes.
helped me learn basics
Some, but I still had to ask other instructors for help, he wasnt clear
22. Other comments:
I am glad I was able to take this course with Professor Mitchell. He always made the class a comfortable environment, and I gained a lot of great information through taking this course.
Just Hoping I pass....lol!
