13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I liked the progression of learning by Professor Anderson as we met at each class session. The engagement of her course allowed me to never be bored or complacent. I really liked how she engaged the class and how we participated all together thus allowing us the students to hear each others comments and learning even further from each others idea's and interpretation. The idea of working together as a class does work out well because the feeling of community involvement allows each student no matter at what level he or she is at, to feel like you are a part of the learning process. But at the same time you will also feel the accountability as an individual to complete whatever assignments you are asked to complete. One of the things I looked forward to was at the start of the class session when we had to spend 7 minutes writing on a certain topic. The time allowed was just right it wasn't too short or too long, it was just right. After a long day at work it was enjoyable to take the time to gather your thoughts and reflect on that short moment. Because of it I have decided to take a moment to write on a daily bases. I know my writing ability has improved, and I love to write, it definitely has helped me to express what is really going on in my mind, and how I feel. As far as the assigments I liked the variety of ideas such as writing a letter to someone, and the reason is because in today's day and age, writing letters are no longer something we do. Modern technology has changed the need to write a letter. I think it is a treasure to receive a letter now days. Todays children do not even know what a letter is, and much to my dismay we have lost the art of writing and the English language. Finally, I will miss working with a partner on projects such as proofreading, critiquing, and feedback. I like the honesty of my fellow students especially their interpretation of how they came away with what I wrote, it was an eye opener for me because many times it was not what I was trying to convey but to the listener it was completely the opposite. Having gone through this exercise I was able to carefully think through what I really wanted to say and how I was going to express it on paper. This course has helped me in so many ways, and I now feel ready for English 100. Thank you so much Professor Anderson for your instruction and style of teaching, I will forever be grateful to you.
she found ways to make it fun, yet useful.
Expressing what we're feeling to the class in a educational way
She gave us enough time to do our work.:)
The assignment's were helpful to boost my confidence as well as my writing skills, I especially enjoyed the essay topics Susan encouraged us to write about. The atmosphere was very comfortable and this made it easy to participate and get involved with the group activities she had us do. Susan is a great teacher, and this course was a very big help in the progress I've made in my other classes. Susan was always patient, helpful and polite. I am very satisfied with this course and glad to have had such a enjoyable learning experience.
I really enjoyed this course because it helped me learn how to write better. We were told to write 3 different essays on three different topics, i was able to see how i progressed from day one. I thought this was a very good idea because i could see how i grew in my writing skills.
We did many group activities.n/a
This course helped me to write an Essay. The teacher was very thorough in explaining our daily lessons. Classes was done in a very organized manner. I enjoyed small group session when we shared our Essay's with each other. This is when we found out that there are so many different style of writing, and that everyone has their own ideas of a subject given to them. I learned what I needed to learn in this course to help me to get to the next stage.
I liked the assignments that were assigned in class to help us to understand about what we read and how to write our own essay. She was a great teacher and a very good motivator.
Ms Anderson is a great teacher and it's too bad she will not be teaching English 100. Because of her I want to continue writing. I hated writing before taking this class.
This course was very interesting and I have learned a lot from the instructor on ways how to submit a writing essay online. Group interact in class on " activities, projects and assignments." It's very clear when the instructor explain on class writing, homework and when it is due. Anderson is an instructor teach with skills that balance within the classroom among students of multi culture, language and a person like me disable.
projects and assignments.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
After taking the placement test twice and falling short by a couple of points I was told to meet with my counselor. My counselor suggested that I take this course in preparation for English 100. At first I was upset because of the time and cost incurred. But with the gentle persuasion of the counselor and her explaining that I would benefit from this course and make me a better student for English 100, I am now so grateful that I did. So my one suggestion is that if you have the time and the means it would be in the best interest of anyone to take this refresher course as I saw it and in preparation for English 100. My second suggestion is that it would be good to continue to have the same instructor Professor Susan Anderson continue to teach English 100. That way the continuity and steady progression of english learning continues on. I think I speak for our entire class when I say that her style of teaching which is hard to find as far as wanting to keep learning and a desire to write would be in the best interest of the student and the University. WE WANT PROFESSOR ANDERSON TO TEACH ENGLISH 100, please!
not at this moment.
This course was excellent and should be offered at the U.H.campus as well.

Many students would enjoy the way that she instructs her class because she reach out to everyone, it is balance.

28. Ten years from now I'll probably remember this course most by ...
Still having a love for writing because my Professor taught me to love writing and begin at what ever level you are at. Maybe when I am speaking in front of an audience of intelligent people and coming away with alot compliments such as. That was the best presentation I have ever heard. I will contribute that to my writing skills and ability to convey what I really wanted to say.
the skills and knowledge I learned when I have to right future papers.
Writing a lot of care plans as a nurse.
I'm very certain this course will help me in my career, as well as in my personal writing interests, I've learned a lot and am thankful to have had such an enjoyable learning experience.
I think i would remember in order to have a topic you could freewrite and let your thoughts run wild.
all the students working together.
If I am here in ten years I will most remember this course because it taught me to write with the intention of using your imagination. It gave me the confidence I needed to know that I can write and bring out the inner me in my writing, not professionally but just to write better and to write in an essay form. I learned to use proper language, grammar, and punctuation marks appropriately.
The motivation that I received from my teacher to keep going even when I thought I couldnt write the essay. She helped me to get a better picture of how I could improve my essay in a totally different way without it being totally difficult.
Writing and being published.
How to write a proper essay.
Learning how to write essays, research on the web and how time is valuable. The time she spends with the students here at college after teaching High School students she has a lot of energy left to bring the course clear to the whole, as an example she have shown me a way to write a book and my title is "This Is My Life" about me. She is a person that cares for the student and encouraged me (them) reach for your goal the dream that needs to be written and sent forth so others can read what experiences I (them) went through in life, so ten years from now I will not forget this instructor because Ms. Anderson is very special.
the teacher, as well as the enthusiasm Susan had to motivate everyone that they have a story worth sharing.
29. Other comments:
Thank you so much Professor Anderson for your talent and ability to make me a better writer and a lover of reading.
I wish Susan Anderson taught Eng 100 because I would be the first one to sign up for her course. She made the class fun and interesting and I learn best when I am not bored. Im going to miss her.
Thanks Susan for all your positive encouragement and you really helped me to go farther than I had expected. Keep up the good work! you're definitely a great teacher, and a big asset to the college, as well as the community.
Their are a few teachers that take the time who are willing to understand and have the patience to teach. Susan Anderson is this type of teacher. She answers all the questions asked, or will look for the answers and come back with a reply. Hope she will be able to teach more students like myself.
Shes a great teacher.
MAHALO A NUI LOA SUSAN FOR BEING A KIND, WARM HEARTED, ALL AROUND BEAUTIFUL PERSON!
Thank you, Ms. Anderson for teaching me what I must know to become a writer. I appreciate you very much for the patience and understanding with a humble spirit that you showed me. You have blessed me very much and I am pretty sure other students feel the way I feel. I pray that you will teach English 100 someday.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
Susan Anderson kindled a fire in me for writing. She is encouraging and helpful, telling me all the things I need to work on. I am planning to take her for my nest english class. Thank you for a wonderful school experience. My favorite part of this class, would have to be our writing assignments.
Mrs. Anderson, her instructions are very clear getting the point across, preparing her students what is expected, how it should be done and why it's for the students benefit to get ready for "the finals." She's understanding, enjoyable, and simple to have her as a English teacher, I recommend Susan Anderson hot and 101%. Wow she's awesome! Aloha for your patience. Mahalo Nui Loa! Mrs. Anderson
What I like about the course is the fact that we always write paragraph. In that case, I have the chance to hone my writing skills.
Her learning style teaching that helps me, to understand and have motivation to continue college.
love the class vibe and how the teacher relates to us.

I just love going to Ms Anderson class she has great sprit in class and she knows alot about English writing. She is very easy going and also figures outs awzy to make us understand what we learn.
I like how she made English class fun to be in.
Easy work
I liked doing the class work as a group because then we would get good feedback from our classmates as well as our teacher Mrs.Anderson. I also liked when we would half-to go to the computer lab to type out our class assignment because before i had this class, i knew nothing about computers, but now i know more about how to use the Microsoft Word which where i have also grown alot in my grammer.
The freewriting exercises and doing paragraphs.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I liked writing essays in the class and participating in group/class discussions. I liked reading the books "Language Awareness" and "If You Want to Write".
I ended up writing a nice piece about a family member that I'm proud of.
I am normally not a very social person.But, that changed when I got to her class. She requested that we read our essays out loud and at first I was hesitant but I soon got used to doing this. It is sometihng I now like to do, and I wish more instructers asked this of their students.
the essays that allowed me to develop my writing skills.
The activities I enjoy the most is reading and discussing the writing to discover.
everything
She is a very delightful teacher. Always looked happy.
Excellant, down to earth teacher who makes you feel comfortable participating in class and she is easy to talk to in class she encourages open participation in class.
I liked the group work because I work better in a ground.
I enjoyed getting in the small groups while we evaluated each others work. Each of the writing assignments were unique, and made you look a little further into your self without you even knowing it at the time. As I did more writing, I became more confident in my writing skills.
I liked the fact that I was able to write good essays and keep up with my work that was assigned.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
i like that evry time we did an essay we would get into group to discuss and get feed back from our classmates.Also that it was a very hand on class and not uncomfortable to ask for help when needed
Nothing at the moment.
Less group work and change it up once in a while, I felt like we did the same thing just in a different week.
I think the syllabus was a little confusing. Maybe an improvement could be to further explain her expectations.
No, I got alot out of the class and it's instructor.
Nope
Sharing work with the class should be optional.

I really enjoyed this class and English is my least favorite subject. The teacher didn't stress me out with a heavy work load as well.
The workbooks seem to provide more busy work than anything. Could probably stand to be eliminated from the curriculum. Overall, I thought Susan was an outstanding instructor. She has a polite, friendly demeanor about her, and was enjoyable to be taught by. Her assignments were relevant, and encouraged students to look deeper within themselves.
one interesting class.
It was alright, just repetitive.
I really enjoyed this class, but could have done without sharing my work with everyone. I'm going to miss this class, but appreciate everything that I have learned with Mrs. Susan Anderson. She is a great teacher and made my semester in her class fun.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I liked the essays weve done and the reading material provided.
I felt that this class has taught me a lot. Throughout all my english classes, this class has taught me to write from my heart. I loved the topics that we given because it showed me how to write with feelings.
I liked how we were given time to improve
reading them to my class
I liked the Ueland reflections the most. It was fun to read, and it was easy to connect to.
I really liked when we wrote to the "Writing to Discovers" in the Language Awareness books then read our writings out loud. In a way i look at it as not only an English Class but it allowed me as a writer to express the way i feel and to feel confident in what i write, not needing to explain a single word i wrote because writing what i feel needs no explanation. I also really liked writing the essays that were personal (Essays #1 & 5). These essays showed my own personality and allow others to understand the type of writer i am.
I enjoyed everything about this class. She made it so everyone could understand what we were doing in class and how to do our assignments.
I liked certain essays that we did. I really enjoyed the I Believe Essay. It was really fun to do, and easy to write about because we were writing from our point of view instead of having to do research on it.
I liked that Susan was very willing to help us if needed and I also enjoyed our essay assignments. The essays that I got to write were very fun and the essay topics were relevant.
I liked writing the assigned essays and class group discussions. The course allowed me to learn how to write effectively and specifically. Susan is an amazing and talented instructor.
I enjoyed the teachers cheerful aditude.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Become a little more strict with assignments
none she was a great teacher. great heart and actually wants us to learn and succeed. two thumbs up:)
Maybe have different types of writing assignments? Like: an essay, a short story, a diary, etc.
I didn't like the exercises in that little book! To me it's very basic and self explanatory so sometimes i found myself not doing it cause it was pointless.
none
A suggestion that I have for this course is maybe make drafts for essays mandatory to do because if they are not mandatory to do, students will not do them and will always come to class empty handed. When they do this, most students just sit around listening to those few people who actually did their draft.
not at this time
There was a lot of homework, but other than that, this class was great!
Not really. The syllabus is intense and kept me busy.
Its awsome already.

36. Ten years from now I'll probably remember this course most by ...
The bibliographies and the people in it!
How I had to relate papers to metaphors
The Homeworks. This is the first english course that I have taken that gives a lot of homework, but it was all worth it because it has helped me improve my writing skills.
How I was told that I had more potential with writing than I thought
the work that i wrote
I think I'll always remember the "advice" we learned from reading the book "So you want to be a writer"
the fact that it taught me to stand strong in my writing and to write not only what i feel but write with HEART! don't try and please the audience.
The teacher. Her kindness and dedication to teaching.
My inability to complete the "Art" essay on-time.
Ten years from now I'll probably remember this course most by the class discussions we had when we reflected on reading assignments and class work. It made you have a broader view of how people thought about certain issues and events in the world.
the topics we wrote about in class
writing great essays and having a great teacher.
Susan is an awesome instructor. She helped me realize my potential in writing when I didn't think much of it. I'll remember sharing in discussions with my classmates who are amazing individuals with great minds.
The essays i wrote
37. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
My classmates and the conversations with Anderson.
Syllabus
It would have to be the "Writing to Discover."
Feedback
thatt the teacher was clear and she
It has helped me become a better writer.
That confidence in your writing is a big key!
The writing skills and thinking out of the box.
The advice received with regard to grammar, structure and sentence flow.
What I fould the most valuable and helpful about this course was when we had the annotated bibliography essay. Now that we did that assignment I have a better understanding of how to make an annotated bibliography which will be very helpful for future classes.
When i needed help susan was always available to help me better understand the assignment
The books used and group projects. Susan was great!
I learned how to write effectively and to use those techniques at work where writing is a part of my job. I have improved my writing skills, according to a recent evaluation from my boss.

I am going to miss this class!
this was a great class i enjoyed it very much
This was a great class, I really liked it! It was fun, educational, and challenging, without making me feel like giving up.
I feel there should be more activities besides reading that will allow students to express themselves. maybe like an actual debate.
This was the best class I took this semester. Thank you
I really enjoyed this class. It was always very interesting and fun to be in along with the group of students in the class. Susan was a very nice, kind and wonderful teacher. She always was there to help when we needed it and she always gave off a positive, happy energy which made the class very inviting to go to.
I loved this class!
I loved this class. It was a great experience for me. I encourage everyone to take this class. It was a positive experience.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I really enjoyed the topics that were assigned to us for our essays. For example, I really liked the ThisIBelieve.org website. I had to show it to my mother (who is also a English teacher) and she really liked the website as well and used part of my essay topic in one of her own units. Also, group participations were very appropiate and useful. I can tell when a teacher is good when I share what I've learned in class with others. Susan Anderson was one of the teachers I enjoyed this semester. thumbs up.
I like the essays and reading the book by Brenda Ueland.
I liked the faxct that the essays were personal, they moved me to really get into the writing process
She had us do short writing assignments and read our answers to the class. This was great for getting other perspectives and ideas. I think she is great. The only thing I would change would be the syllabus. It is quite jarbled and the assignments are hard to understand.
i learned alot about writing and i enjoyed learning about how to be efficient in my writing. i also learned that rough drafts are suppose to be terrible and never give up.
Fun!
Just the overall writing was a great experience.
I liked the laid-back, relaxing feel of the classroom environment. I think Ms. Anderson has a real passion for writing, I can tell. I felt like her enthusiasm for english acted as a inspiration for me.
Textbooks, Brenda Ueland and Language Awareness. Getting into groups and publishing our writing. Reading together in class.
i love my language awareness book, so many different stories and activites to go through. i did however find myself alittle conflicted with a few stories but that is just me and my opinion. dMrs. Anderson made class fun and allowed us to express what was on our minds and that is very helpfull for me.
One of the many things I appreciated about this class was the syllabus because it told exactly what homework was due on what day and it was easy to understand and follow. Ms. Anderson always had extra copies of the syllabus, essay instructions, etc. available in the classroom. It was also helpful that she emailed the essay instructions to us. The best thing about this class was Ms. Anderson's feedback on writing and especially essays. Her comments were interesting, funny and helpful and showed that she actually thoroughly read each essay and put time and thought into it. I would recommend this class to anyone.
I loved writing in a creative way, and really enjoyed the I believe essay. Also the perspective paper was surprisingly easy to write, when usually I dislike writing such essays.
it was a good well rounded eng 100 class.
I enjoyed this class along with the associated activities. It was a great experience taking this class as a high school student.
This English class is fun and interesting. Although we dont go over any ogf the grammar homework I really like the essay topics.
I liked the essay writing.
I liked the way that we wrote a lot and would get into groups to share our writing and talk about what we wrote with each other. it helped get more ideas and thoughts to register in mind on how you could form your essay and what to write about. I also liked that we discussed topics as a class and everyone would expresss what they felt or thought on that particular subject.
I like everything of the class. everything was worthy. very good teacher
The process of writing a college essay was explained clearly. I enjoyed the peer editing and working in small groups.
I loved the group work the most. I was able to know my classmates better that way and learn all their names. I feel that group work and interacting with your peers is very important in any course.
I enjoyed all of the essay that were required of us in the class (6 in all) and the many times that we did group work and got to know our fellow classmates.
I think I found the Essays most enjoyable over all else. The book work was a little more difficult to understand and I had a hard time getting it done and turned in on time.
awesome class
I enjoyed writing the essays.
I like the whole process. I learned to free up myself to be able to write. Sharing in the small groups was scary at first but gave me confidence. Through the reading of various writers and writing styles, I was able to fing my own voice. The Brenda Ueland book was fabulous and one that I will refer to in years to come.
There were a couple of essays i enjoyed working with.
I thought there were a lot of good topics on the essays.
I really enjoy Susan Anderson's class. I would strongly recommend other students to enroll in her class.
I liked getting into groups and reading our esays to each other. It gave me a bit more confidence in myself to speak in front of others.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
At the moment, or at any moment actually, I cannot think of any improvements.
No suggestions.
more free writing before the essays are assigned
i would have liked to do more in-class grammar.
A clearer syllabus for assignments. It was a little confusing to knwo when to turn in assignments.
the syllabus needs to simpler to understand.
nope...
None. I believed she does a great job.
I didn't really think that Ms. Anderson was very creative with her lesson plans. I got bored doing the same activies every day. I would have enjoyed having a little more freedom with my essays.The topics assigned for the essays seemed limiting.
Not at this time.
the only suggestion is a that we do alittle less grouping or assign them instead of counting off.
I really enjoyed doing written peer reviews like the elbow review sheet. I would have liked to do more of those so that I could go back and read what the other students said about my writing. There should also be a "more strongly agree" option on this survey.
Possibly offer help to students that were having trouble with the assignments that weren't essays.
Maybe go over the grammar homework. At least 15 minutes.
focus more time on essay writing and developing the essays. less time with Language Awareness.
A little bit more reading perhaps to expand knowledge in that field, since reading is important aspect and greatly affects life in a general way.
Less homework.
I enjoyed how this course was taught.
Just for Susan Anderson to calm down a little and take a deep breath every once in a while because she does just go on and on while not making a point or saying the same thing again and again.
It would be very helpful to briefly go over some of the Language Awareness book assignments, so that students who don't quite understand what they are supposed to do might have a better idea after a quick overview.
no need!
Allow students in the beging of the year to choose the topics for the six essays.
No
Maybe a tiny bit more use of visual aids or stories with film as in the plastic bag short film. I understand that there is only so much time but that may help peak some peoples interest as I think some people got bored. But contrastly, having just the pencil, book and paper was refreshing too.
No, I thought it was good the way it is.
None
I wouldn't change anything.

41. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
I have no suggestions for improvement. I enjoyed the class the way she taught it.
I think her teaching is really great.
get rid of those little work books. thos sthings suck
she doesn't need to make any improvements.
seems fine to me.
Honestly, the people who have a problem with this class are the ones who are lazy and pathetic. This class was simple, but not easy. Most of the students could not wrap their head around this.
Be herself
she is doing fine as it is.
Ms. Anderson could be more demanding of the students attention when they are talking in class. She's too nice.
Make it more clear how people will be graded on the different assignments they do.
I believe Susan Anderson did a great job, this course was fun and worth it. I gainede a lot of english skills, and i'm sad that it's coming to an end.
I would like to have gone over homework material in class, maybe the first 15 minutes.
I am not sure, she did a very good job as a teacher.
Homework assignments listed on the syllabus should also be explained in class.
I felt her teaching was great! I would not improve much
Just for Susan Anderson to calm down a little and take a deep breath every once in a while because she does just go on and on while not making a point or saying the same thing again and again.
Brief explanations of the Language Awareness booklets wold be very beneficial I think.
no need
Not much to improve on.
The last essay, we were given the time to free write and start on the essay #6. This was really helpful because I had to start which is sometimes the hardest part at home. Some parts of the material I wrote in class I will include in my final essay. Having that extra push to generate ideas could be increased. Sometimes Susan is long winded in her explanations but it didn't really bother me, it was actually charming.
maybe she can use other methods of teaching and/or dicussions instead of small group sessions and reading in small groups.
I think she did a great job. I can't think of any improvements for her.
I think it is perfectly fine the was it is.
42. Comment on the instructor's concern for the students.
She made herself available as much as she could. During group discussions, she gave attention for each of us. She has genuine concern for her students.
I have no concerns.
no concerns.
she was very open to us letting us know to always feel free to come to her for clearance on anything.
She was always very helpful and concerned for the students. Not many people are like that.
She takes it into consideration and says something about it if feels the need to.
she is not just a teacher but a friend and willing to help asnyone who had ask for it. she understands if you have difficulty with a situation and will help ayou with alternatives.
I am convinced that Ms. Anderson really cared about my success both in this class and outside as well.
She seems genuinely concerned for the students.
She was helpful, when i had any questions or concerns she was eagerly there to address them.
She has great concern for the students and seems to enjoy accomadating her students needs and wants.
Susan always showed concern for students and was compassionate on accepting late work.
excellent teacher who concerned a lot about us, and for encouraging us to write and feel it
Mrs. Anderson was very patient with some of us who maybe weren't the most confident writers in the world at the beginning of the semester.
She is very thoughful and caring for her students and makes sure they are doing well in her class. She understands her students and tries to make exceptions for late work.
She cares immensely for her students and wants them all to succeed.
She was very understanding and did not want the students to over stress about the course. She also understood if students could not make it to a class and would make sure they were still able to get their work in and catch up with the rest of the class.
most concerned
Susan seems very concerened about all the students and wants everyone to succeed.
Susan is a devoted teacher whose passion for writing is evident. I feel wholeheartedly encouraged by her. She encouraged me to fing my own voice through free writing where nothing is discounted. I have a hard time with self-censorship and perfectionism and she is the perfect antidote. She met with me outside of class and wants to share about the act of writing as an outlet, an art form, something accessible to anyone.
I think she is a very helpful teacher.
Susan is always available for her students. She is always available before and after class. You can also contact her via email. She is very pleasant and easy to talk to.
She encourages every student to not give up and to have faith in themselves. Every student has a gift that is waiting to be unleashed.
43. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
She had very interesting units that I enjoyed and the fact she put a lot of effort into it was great. My past enlgish teachers were all about organization, grammar, punctuation, etc. But no fun and passion for writing. Anderson gave us useful crtique but also made it fun to do. For me, writing the essays werent really homework. It was more encouraging to write my opinions and feelings. Also to write better and feel accomplished.
That i could talk to her one on one and that she encouraged us every class.
her encouragment to think freely. not to be afraid of making mistakes
Her passion for writing.
very motivating and encouraging!
She kept the class atmosphere light and fun. Even when I complained about an essay that delt with art;I still enjoyed the feedback she gave me. It was very helpful.
She was always on time.
her openess to talk to students.
I felt comfortable talking to Ms. Anderson. I really like it that she talks to us outside of the classroom, before and after class, and gets to know each of us individually. Her comments and feedback are very helpful and personal as well.
She was open to trying new things, and always answered everyone's questions to the best of her ability.
She's a fun professor. I felt encouraged through assignments by her. If there was anything i needed assistance with i could rely on her for help. I think she had a "welcoming" vibe, and i felt comfortable to talk and ask her questions. Which is great to have that kind of relationship with your professor.
Her personality, she has a positve vibe which is perfect for learnign englisha dn gettting inspired.
She was always happy to help.
that she commented on the assignments and put in her own ideas and thoughts and you could write about what you wanted and and not feel embarressed.
everything about her, her personality was great, so that was helful to me for encourage me to keep on my class
Her flexibility and understanding when personal issues arise in our lives at home affect our time at school.
She is patient, caring, kind, and instills hard working ethics in her students.
She told the truth about your writing.
She was very nice with a pleasant personality. She encouraged me to keep writing and to continue with one of my unfinished stories.
read aloud
Very friendly and easy to approach if I had any questions or concerns.
She is entirely herself so I felt I could be entirely myself. I never felt that she was trying too hard or not enough. I felt her dedication even if the class was silent. She is enthusiastic about the material and I see her essay choices for us to read were of a variety. She justs wants her students to write and is very encouraging.
having to do more research
I think she has a very good atitude and a good teaching style
She brought out feelings that I never knew existed in a positive way.
What I found most helpful was the daily free writing. It allowed me to write freely without worrying about others critizing my writing.
44. Other comments:
great english class.
none.
Thank You
none
I'll miss attending this class when the semester ends. I would like to thank Ms. Anderson for making this class a pleasant educational experience.
I feel good about my decision to take this class, and enjoyed working with Susan Anderson.
thank you!
Thank you very much for a great semester in English 100!!
I really enjoyed this course and hope to enroll in more courses with pleasant teachers like Mrs. Anderson. Thank you Mrs. Anderson
I feel fortunate to have had Susan for my first writing course at this school. I feel that my writing has improved greatly and, most important, am inspired to write on my own. She has offered herself as a contact for the review of student's future work, which I think is kind and exceptional and shows her dedication to the art form. Many thanks Susan and I look froward to working with you in the future.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I really loved the peer reviews we had in class.
The work wasn't too hard and gave me a lot of leeway. I was allowed to choose a lot of what I wanted to do/write about and it was enjoyable.
The work books helped with examples on how to do grammer, structure, etc, and the reference book helped even more when doing essays.
I liked the short writing prompts we did to start class or before doing a reading.
Getting to know my classmates through group work was nice.
I did not enjoy anything about this course. It was ineffective and useless to my future writing needs.
I like the group work activities and working together in groups, it helped us to get to know out classmates and what their learning as well.
I like Susan sytle of teaching! Getting into groups and reading out the material helped me a lot more because i had feedback on what i did wrong! he assignments was pretty striaght foward and there was no way any student could missed the dealine or due date for any assignment!
Group work was fun, and it gave everyone the opportunity to add their flavor to the project. I also like the fact that Susan gave us the option to be creative.
Nothing, really.
Writing different types of essays. I learned alot about myself.
Susan Anderson really made me excited about writing. Very knowlegable teaching looking forward to taking more of her classes.
Learned about essay writing which has already helped me out in other classes.
I like how we had group assignments and a lot of feedback from my peers. This helped when I edited my papers for my final draft.
the activities were interesting, and I have gained much knowledge finding it very challenging. I explored much about english writing and enjoyed it.
I liked most of the essay subjects. I liked the stories in language awareness and Brenda Ueland's book.
In-class activities were usually done as a class or in groups, and I thought that was a very good way to create discussion on topics and get other peoples' insight on your writing.
I really liked the peer editing that my instructor had us do to our peers. I liked the way our teacher had us students inter act with each other during class
The assignments allowed me to be creative.
I very much enjoyed the variety of essays that we did in class and I felt like I was lead securly by the hand through my first college class.
I like that I was able to learn more about writing an essay. I also liked how we were allowed to write creatively and about things that we could relate to.
I loved everything about this course. Professor Anderson was, is, and will be an amazing teacher.
This course really helped me to better my writing. Before this course, i never had to write a 3 page long essay, since im only in the 11th grade. This course also made me have more self confidence in my writing-- i never thought i would get an A on a college essay.
good teacher
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
The teacher could also edit the first draft of the student along with the peers.
More class time to work on essays and feed back for essays.
Do more Language Awareness sections as those were good.
I guess the most important thing to work on would be to stay on topic. Many of the comments made during class times were redundant. For the work we did in class and the homework we needed to do out of class, I feel the class time could easily have been shortened to 50 minutes. We simply didn't accomplish much in class and what we did talk about was repetitive.
I liked that we did group work but it was really hard for me to do it effectively because it was hard to concentrate with so many people talking at once.
I think that Susan Andersons whole course needs to be changed. She needs to have a better text book that goes step by step through the writing process. The only text book she assigned was a reference manual. It was not effective in teaching me anything about writing. She never went over the material in class from this book either. I think the class time should have been spent better. The only thing we would usually did in class is read stories and respond to them. My writing skills were not improved during this class. Last year I took English 22 from Michael Larish. He prepared us for an advanced English 100 class. I was very disapointed to attend Susan Andersons class it was much less advanced than Michael Larishs class. I have learned nothing new and have even started to dislike writing. If it had not been for Michael Larishs class I would not know enough to make it through college. Susan Andersons class does not even have a final I think that should also change for this to be an effective class.
none.
maybe choosing students to read, instead of just having it silent because if i do not have to read, i wont! but if the teacher tells me to read then i will end up reading!
I highly disliked the 2 work books (that we would remove pages from.)
English has always been my strong point, but Anderson teaches this course as if everyone is retarded. I swear, I feel like I'm back in high school when I am in her class. Hello people, I tested into English 100, therefore I probably do not need to do page after page of EDITING COMMAS! This class really has driven me insane! College should not entail all the stupid busywork we had to do in high school!!!!!! I learned that crap already!
syllabus was a little confusing.
Home work assignments were sometimes a little confusing. It would help if she could be a little more specific.
Some of the in class reading assignments took up a lot of time, especially when a classmate had an accent. I find it much easier to read the material on my own then have the class come together for an assignment.
I like visiting the library and learning about search methods on writing my essays. The library teachings came in handy and I learned much more than I imagined.
The course is fine as it is.
well on the syllabus she should of probably made the information less confusing. also on one of our books(language awarness) there was no page numbers that was added to the assingment that she had wanted done or title to the reading she wanted.
Be more clear about the books being used. There were a few mess-ups with the book orders. A lot of people, including myself, found it hard to do the work in the WWS because it was not the appropriate book.
No.
Maybe more group interactions. I enjoyed getting into groups and talking about my essays.
I have no suggestions to improve this course. this course helped me greatly in every aspect of writing.
all good

21. Has he/she contributed to your general knowledge or to learning job skills?
She has enabled my writing skills to grow far beyond what I thought they could become after this class.
My essay writing skills have improved due to this class.
Yes, she has as I have more knowledge on how to improve my essays and what I still need to work on.
No. Skills learned in this class is more suited toward creative writing with some things for academic writing. It didn't really apply to a job. As far as general knowledge, most of the skills taught in this class were things I was already familiar with.
Yes; more for the general knowledge than the job skills though. As this was more of an introductory class, I didn't really expect any job skill to be learned. Regardless of what I've said here, I was actually quite surprised how the class did help me with draft revisions.
yes and having the classes at the library were helpful.
I learned nothing new form this class. I feel I missed out on learning important writing skills I was depending on learning for my future classes. I will now need to spend extra time learning them myself. I feel the class time was used poorly and was a waste of my time and money.
yes she is. she was a good help in that area.
Yes it has because I need to start writing cover letters and personal letter, so i have been using everything i was thought into my work outside of school.
I am now able to write an eassay on the spot. Before it would take me days due to writers block.
Heck no.
Yes!
YES!!
yes
Yes! She expressed how writing can be looked at by different audiences. So, it's very important on how we present our work.
yes definitely. She has given me the courage to challenge myself, and accomplish higher level writings.
This class was all about practice and hearing other people's essays.
Yes!
yes especially where essay formating is concerned
I now know where to go to if I have any grammar or essay questions in the future.
Yes. I feel like my writing abilities have much improved in orginization, length, and quality.
I do believe that she contributed to my learning in many ways. I have learned alot because of my English 100 class.
Professor Anderson was always there when I had a question or concern. She was willing to stay after class to improve my skills at writing. She is very committed and devoted to help the students.
Yes, i think she has contributed many ways to my general knowledge and learning skills. I learned many things in this course that I never learned before-- such as how to write an essay.
yes very much

29. Ten years from now I'll probably remember this course most by ...
How much my writing style grew and changed.
The powerful essays we read and topics we covered.
The essays we've written as I really like some of them.
all of the different workbook based homework we had.
how willing Mrs. Anderson was willing to help her pupils, myself included. She's very tolerant and patient.
I'll probably remember Brenda Ueland's book. I'm keeping my copy - I really liked it.
How much I could have learned about writing if I had a more effective teacher.
about the learning to how to workout writing problems and work editing with classmates or with the teacher. my classmates were also helpful and nice.
I do not really know because I do not think about thing that will happen ten years from now. But i know i will use all my skills that i have learned!
Susan's patience.
How much a waste of time it was. I swear, I haven't learned a single thing in this class.
Referring to my portfolio of essays and seeing the work I did back then. I really liked that she made us type different types of essays.
repetition of essay writing
How I present my work for others to read.
exploring diffent types of subjects and my creative writing essays.
The portfolio of all my essays.
The enthusiastic instructor!
the essays
Group work and editing with my peers.
the fact that it was my first college class ever. And even though I was younger then everyone, I felt like I fit in. Ms. Anderson has been a wonderful teacher.
everything, because the whole course has taught me to find my true self in my writing and gave me a different perspective on alot of things.
Professor Anderson. She's a cool Professor and not too strict. I felt free to express myself in this class, and that's why I will remeber this class.
I'll probably remember this course most by all the essays we had to do and how much they improved my writing. I'll also remember this class by the teacher who made writing easier and more fun than it seems.
my new found writing skill
30. What things did you get from this course that will benefit you personally?
The ability to write 3-5 page essays with ease.
I learned how to argue and state my opinion.
I learned more about myself from having to do an essay on myself.
The extra practice in citing sources using the MLA format will be useful later on in college.
I didn't like the Brenda Ueland book very much after the 4th or 5th chapter. It moved into too many examples and because a bore to read. I would suggest Stephen King's book about writing, or even perhaps Orson Scott Card's sci-fi writing helper book. They're more interesting and by authors who the general public may have heard of (and may be more willing to read from).
The assignments definitely pushed me to really think. I wanted to get good grades so, it was time consuming!
I did not personally benefit from this course. I wanted to learn more about the technical aspect of writing instead I was forced to do creative writing. Susan Anderson is better suited for a creative writing class not an English 100 class where students future carrers depend on this important mandatory class. I did not learn anything useful. If it were not for Michael Larishs English 22 class I would not know anything at all about writing a college paper.
the input from my teacher and classmates that have helped and improve my writing skills.
Better writing!
I can think more "out of the box", and I have more confidance when writting.
Remembering to drop any classes that are taught by high school professors in the next school year.
My writing skills have improved tremendously.
properly writing an essay
How my rough draft will always come out generic & the more I edit it, the more my work becomes progress & presentable.
My writing skills. The enthusiasm to conquer difficult tasks by believing I can do it. Helped me with critical thinking as well.
Practice writing essays so I feel more comforrtable with my writing style.
The different topics we wrote about made me think about things I hadn't thought about before.
Motivation to persue writing a book.
From this course I feel like the writing skills I have attained will help me with future classes.
Alot of things from this course will benefit me personally, especially now that I have the ability and self confidence to write better.
Stronger writing skills.
I got more self confidence in my writing in this writing course, and because of it, it has helped me write more efficiently.

I enjoyed the class.
I do not think Susan Anderson is well suited to teach this class. I was very disapointed in my experience. I was hoping to learn more than I did. I wish I had taken another instructor for this class. I feel I missed out on important information I needed to learn. This was not an effective class.
i enjoyed this class!:)
great job mrs. susan, keep up the good work!
And so, let me also say that Anderson is a good teacher, but I really don't feel that she is cut out for college teaching.
This class has gave me interest in taking up a higher writing extensive class. I now I have an interest in Journalism.
Great course and instructor, though the grammar work was pretty boring.
Thank You Ms. Anderson. :)
Professor Anderson is cool!!! Thank you Professor!

19. If you were teaching this course: a. What would you do to improve it? b. What would you change?
If anything, I would just make the assignments more open to individuality.
absolutely nothing.
Nothing
I wouldn't choose essays out of the Language Awareness book, they weren't interesting at all. I also would grade fairly, because on one of my essays I got all highs on the grading sheet and you gave me a C+ as my grade.
i didnt like doing the grammar worksheets...
nothing
Maybe refresh students memory on the simple things like subject-verb agreement....etc. Very breif. Such things could take all of 5 minutes. Add Hands-on activities and thinking outside the box to curriculum.
20. What do you think of the teacher and his/her teaching methods?
I really enjoyed Ms. Anderson's teaching methods. She was very kind and helpful throughout the process. I was afraid that college may be a painful experience to some extent, but if all my teachers turn out at all like Ms. Anderson, I have absolutely nothing to fear.
awesome :]
She is EXCELLENT
Maybe make it a little more fun and interesting.
her methods wee easy to follow.
i think she is a really good teacher. if i had to take an english class again i would definatly want Ms. Anderson to be my teacher and i will recommend her to all my friends.
At times, it felt that she was stalling time through speaking by being redundant at the beginning of the class and end. Over all, she was always calm and collective especially when noone wanted to participate. She was always encouraging, positive, and happy!
I think a lot of the time we didnt have something to do. She spent a lot of time on one activity.
21. Has he/she contributed to your general knowledge or to learning job skills?
Yes. I felt like this class was easy, but not to the point where I didn't learn anything, because I did. It was a nice start to get me up to the place where I can participate like a well rounded college student.
yes
somewhat
yes
yes
By constantly writing essays I have become a better writer.
22. Other comments:
I really enjoyed the class. All the assignments were understandable and the techer was very sweet natured. I am ready to move on up to a Creative Writing Course thanks to this class.
One of the best teachers I had!
Your a nice caring teacher but i feel you need to change some areas in your teaching methods.
Mahalo for your time and patience!

19. If you were teaching this course: a. What would you do to improve it? b. What would you change?
I if I were to teach this course, I would probably include more outside-of-class activities to be related to the English 100 curriculum. I would also focus more on developing our writing, as sometimes I felt my pieces were still raw. Other than that, I am in agreement in how she taught the class.
DO THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT SUSAN DOES. INSTEAD OF FOCUSING ON A DEAD WRITER THROUGHOUT THE SEMESTER, I'D FOCUS ON WHAT I AM CAPABLE OF AND WHAT I CAN CONTRIBUTE. FOCUS ON THE STUDENTS AND ANSWER THEIR QUESTIONS THE BEST WAY POSSIBLE. I WOULD NOT BE REDUNDANT AND BY THE TIME THE SEMESTER IS OVER, I WOULD HAVE MY STUDENTS LEAVE KNOWING THAT THEY LEARNED SOMETING IN MY CLASS.
20. What do you think of the teacher and his/her teaching methods?
I think that my teacher has very good teaching methods. She explains what the agenda for the class is, the goal of the particular day's class and what we need to do. When questions come up, she answers them and makes sure that we understand. She also encourages us to try new things with our writing that we have not done before (e.g. submit it to student publication). She has effectively taught us the skills to succeed in our writing endeavors.
SHE IS OK, HER TEACHING, POOR. SHE DIDNT REALLY TAKE FULL CONTROL OF HER CLASS. I SOMETIMES FOUND IT EASIER TO ASK ANOTHER CLASSMATE QUESTIONS ABOUT OUR ASSIGNMENTS AND GET THE ANSWER I WAS LOOKING FOR RATHER THAN GETTING REDUNDANT ANSWERS FROM SUSAN. TOO MUCH FOCUS ON BRENDA UELAND AND HER PERSPECTIVE ON WRITING. ALTHOUGH BRENDA ULEAND IS A GOOD WRITER, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER TO BE TAUGHT BY SUSAN ANDERSON ABOUT WRITING. WHEN ASING QUESTIONS SUSAN SAYS, "WHAT WOULD BRENDA UELAND DO" OR "WHAT WOULD BRENDA UELAND SAY OR THINK" BRENDA UELAND IS DEAD AND SUSAN ANDERSON IS OUR TEACHER AND IT WOULD BE NICE TO GET MY QUESTIONS ANSWERED BY SUSAN INSTEAD OF ANSWERING MY QUESTIONS WITH ANOTHER QUESTION. TEACHING WAS SOMETIMES REDUNDANT. SUSAN WOULD SAY NOT TO WRITE A CERTAIN WAY AND THEN SHED TURN AROUND AND SAY TO WRITE IT IN THE WAY SHE DIDNT WANT US TO. WHEN SHE EDITED MY FINAL DRAFTS, I'D CORRECT IT ON MY FINAL YET, I WOULD GET A LOW GRADE. I DIDNT THINK THAT WAS FAIR CONSIDERING THE FACT THAT SHE IS THE LAST TO SEE MY FINAL DRAFT, MAKE EDITS ON IT AND TELL ME WHERE TO CORRECT AND I DO BUT I STILL GET A LOWER GRADE ON IT. I NEVER ASK HER FOR HELP BECAUSE THE FIRST TIME I DID, SHE BLEW ME OFF AND WHEN I CONFIDED IN HER OPINION IN
21. Has he/she contributed to your general knowledge or to learning job skills?
She has definitely contributed to my general knowledge, as I now know more about writing and the writing process. The skills and other abilities I learned from her are being applied in my college application essays and other assignments in school.
SHE HAS NOT CONTRIBUTED AT ALL. INSTEAD, ITS AS IF I HAVE BEEN DUMMED DOWN.
22. Other comments:

I NEVER ASK HER FOR HELP BECAUSE THE FIRST TIME I DID, SHE BLEW ME OFF AND WHEN I CONFIDED IN HER OPINION IN AN ESSAY, SHE JUST DIDNT CARE. IT SEEMED LIKE SHE WAS INTERESTED IN ANOTHER STUDENT AND JUST LOOKED AT MY ESSAY, GAVE ME COMMENTS THAT DIDNT EVEN PERTAIN TO WHAT I WAS WRITING AND I KNEW THAT SHE WASNT READING MY ESSAY BECAUSE WHEN I TURNED IN THE SAME ESSAY WITH NO EDITS, HER COMMENTS WERE TOTALLY DIFFERENT. IT WENT FROM BEING REDUNDANT, CONFUSING, AND WEIRD TO GREAT WONDERFUL WRITING. IF I KNEW IN THE BEGINNING THAT THIS WAS WHAT I WOULD SPEND HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS ON, I WOULD NOT HAVE CHOSEN HER AS MY PROFESSOR.
I think the library should let students in ENG 100 take the library tests on the students own time or make it accessable from all computers.
