Best English class! The professor knew what she was talking about and really helped me if I needed any clarification. The professor was friendly and seemed willing to help in any way possible and she was very fair in grading assignments.
I like this course. Prof. Georganne was easy to approach.
Excellent class & excellent professor!

Great course. Instructor was clear and easy to grasp what she wanted from us.
Dear Professor Nordstrom, I truly enjoyed taking your class. Your class, unlike my Eng 100 in the first session, was simple and straight to the point of what you intended to teach in the short 6 weeks given. There is not that much other busy work and the work you assigned is definitely advantageous for the students to completing their final paper. I know that this survey is done before the session ended, but I do want to give you my thanks for this memorable session. Best of luck and I do hope you do teach this session again next summer for other students to enjoy.
Very good course I would recommend her to others.
The professor was always timely with communication. The class format was not overly intimidating as other online courses have been. All her instruction was straight to the point and understandable. Very well constructed course.
This instructor fulfilled the the previously mentioned bubbles to make a very efficient peer communication and learning opportunities while giving us proper resources, feedback, contact and communication so that we might be able to work towards our individual papers and interests. Which I think is a super valuable thing to have experienced.
Professor Nordstrom is a very helpful and kind. She truly cares about her students and wants everyone to do well in her course. She facilitates group work and encourages peer reviews. Whenever a student needs help, if you send her an email, she is more than likely to respond back on the same day. She will give you advice about how to strengthen your writing. She is a tough grader, similar to many English professors. However, if you keep up with all the assignments and produce quality work, you should do well in her course.
I feel that Professor Nordstrom was not fair when grading assignments.
She was timely in her responses and getting graded work back to us. She was considerate of the learning process and willing to help students who did not understand what she wanted from them in assignments.
