Will take other class with him He is well educated. Makes coming to class fun
Most helpful would be the way he teaches, he treats you like you are important, you are an individual and he respects you. He is pleasant and has a lot of patients with his students. I must say he works hard at what he do. It makes you want to learn as much as you can and not let him down.
I found most helpful about Mr. Dressler was that he always asked if I need help; he is a good teacher, who doesn't make class boring.
18. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.

nothing.
I would not change the way Mr. Dressler teaches, I wish all teachers were like him, maybe there are, but this is my first year and if all teachers were like him I would be looking forward to returning next semester, which I am.
I have no suggestions to improve this class.

4. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
Learning ways of how to exceed in college.
That we can't manage the time but we can manage our selfs.
The lessons Will gave had you thinking about how you spend your time, how you could manage said time better, and your general outlook when given a good or bad situation, brilliant lessons.
The most valuable and helpful thing about this course was the self assessment test and my scores on the self assessment test.
the way Will addressed us in a classroom was great.
All the strategies to use.
I really liked how it made me think critically about my life goals, standing, and situation and what I wanted to do to maintain or improve.
I was able to know more about myself, my weaknesses in particular, and with this course I found solution to overcome it.
Taught me how to be a succesful college student. Gave me all the tools to grow as a person.
This course helped me to understand my self, and follow my dream because when I entered college I didn't have the confidence I have now, by taking this course. Also helped me understanding College, and to work toward my dreams. Mr William Dressler has been very helpful by answering each student question, even if it was not related to the course topic.
IT help me to focuse on my study assignments more closely and manage my time and not to give up
He was very informative.
Team work
WhenI first came to college, I was very afraid and I had a very low self esteem. I did not think much of myself, I could not speak up and was very hasitant to partiscipate in class. Mr. Dresssler, and this course changed my life. I am now looking forward to enter my next semester. This course gave me the courage, I would recommend this course to all students.
Learning about study skills, how to keep motivation and manage your time, and learning about emotional intelligence were all really helpful. I would take this class again if I could to go over some things I missed and I would recommend this class to a lot of people.
The simple lessons learned about oneself. Course brings up topics that are taught so often that they are often overlooked and forgotten but reintroduced and applied in the class.

Asking for help wont ever be a bad thing..
Mr. Dressler, was most helpful in many ways. You can connect to what he is teaching. He don't rush, he makes sure you undrstand, and he never turn you away if you need help. Very pleasant, and patient. All I can say is he is an excellent teacher. I would like to add through his teaching I love myself now, I have seen in my class a girl that was so shy, and yet at the end of the semester she began to open up. It's the way he accepts you into his classroom that makes you feel comfortable and he treats all his students equal. Thank you Mr. Dressler.

18. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
I have no suggestions.
I have no suggestion
- Give a bigger sense of importance for homework assignments - He feels more like a friend than a teacher at times which can be good or bad
A suggestions for improving the course and/or William dressler's teaching style and methods is to go over more about how to use laulima.
I think it's great just as it is. But the only thing i can say to improve in would be more of Professor Dressler.
All good!
One tiny minor thing that he could perhaps change is his determination to motivate people to keep going to class.
Nothing I could ask for more.
I don't have any suggestion he been a great teacher, and he have a very good reaching habit to teach to help student understand the course he's teaching.
honestly i think he should not change a thing
Not nessary.
I can't think of anything, all I know Mr. Dresler did a darn good job with me. I wouldn't change anything. Wish the class was longer.
The only suggestion I would make would be to have classes be more organized and more hands-on.
none

If you're taking this class, show up. Showing up is fun and creates an opportunity to interact with everybody. The videos shown are extremely helpful AND amusing. If you think the class is worthless, you're wrong, bro. The class is great and the teacher is awesome.

4. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
It gave me more motivation. It thought me to stay positive and always look on the brighter side of things.
how to be successful in college,how to manage time, what homework to do first.
being responsible on every decision of my choice
In class environment and face to face teaching.
i found alot in this course that is valuable to me, like time management procrastination , and the inner critic, inner defender, and inner guide this class made me find myself and alot more.
i can relate what was learned to my real life!
What I found to be valuable about this course is that I am a middle aged mother and I have four children. I currently don't work and find it hard to support all of tmy children. This is my first time back in school after I dropped out of school in 2005. I am usually surrounded by people who do not enjoy being back in school or could care less acout people who are. Mr. Dressler really applies real life learning skills along with the "On Course" textbook. This course has helped me to avoid others beliefs about how they learn, what they think about school, and how they feel about their teachers. I really love being back in school and I think it is the best choice I've made in my life. I would encourage all students to take this class, irregardless if they've been in college before or not. This course could help them stay focused on their goals for school and their future. I would like to thank my counselor, John Constantino, for encouraging me to take this class. At first I thought I was too good to take this class because I am mature and should know better. But throughout the semester, life got involved and threw lots of barriers in my way. If I didn't take this course, I am sure I would have dropped out of school again. I remember, after about three weeks of school, the seats in all four of my classes were beginning to less and less students. How sad I felt for them because I knew how they felt. If only they took this class, maybe just maybe...they would still be here today. Thank you John Constantino and Mr. William Dressler. I can see my future ahead of me and it's looking pretty bright. Mahalo.
All the useful information that was given to us that will help us in life and in college
I loved all the activities that he had in class because we all were able to work together as as group rather then "just students"
this course helped me learn more about myself and ways i can be a better student in college
The things we learned in the On Course book really helped me through life and college.
This course really showed me a lot about myself that i never knew before.
That believing in myself was a huge positive step to become a successful person and there are many ways to become successful and reach your goals.
most valuable to me was understanding more the concepts that will help me to succeed.
I found that being responsible was the most helpful thing to me. Because then i knew that i could do all my college things on my own with out my parents help. I'm starting to like to do things on my own now that I'm out of high school and i also don't depend on my parents to give me money.
I found that If I didn't take this course I wouldn't be as aware as I am today about my learning so this course has a most useful to me in life. It helps me move forward in life.
I think the most valuable things about the course was bringing realistic demonstrations in class as well as interactive activities
You made it fun, the class, by doing games and definitely made us comfortable with our peers.
All of it. the fact that it shows me I can be a success in college. With creator thinking and application.
it helped me by staying on course and keeping focused
William Dressler's teaching highly increased my levels of confidence which I found to be very valuable and helpful.
one thing i found most valuable to me about this course is MOTIVATION, this class kept me motivated in school and out of school ,it gave me the push to be able to have made it this far in college.
he did alot of group work that helped me out with alot of the projects and journal assignments that needed to be done...
it specified the key concepts we need to succeed in college
His teaching syle
This course really made me think and use my brain. Although the course is common sense Mr. Dressler is a mastermind for thinking outside the box to make us think.
the class and instructor helped me to dive deep and to also to become a better decision maker in challenges I face. I have gained many wonderful tools from the book and instructor. I would recommend him to other students as an instructor
It thought me alot about myself and my feelings and thoughts..
It gave me confidence in myself and have my creates in what work I done in all my classes is like tell me don't give up my dream.
I found that reading the On Course book and doing in class activities helped me learn more. I also learned new valuable college and life skills, such as managing my time more wisely.
Learning about myself.
I found that Williams teaching is not like every other instructors teaching. Will takes the time to teach his lessons and also we have fun while we learn. We do activities while we are learning which really helped me while I was trying to learn.
I learned more about myself and how to be successful

He new how to make class interesting
Mr. William Dressler was always free to talk about how I can improve my grades.
The way he conveyed his lessons to tune class. It was very interesting and fun.
What I found most valuable and helpful about this course is probably getting confidence in myself rather than just telling myself that i can't do the things I want to do.
He was always there when you needed help and was willing to help you
I liked how he used many different ways of learning. I also liked how tests were consistant.
He always updated us with what was due. He always gave us friendly reminders.
Loved the way every class started with a question in your perspective based on goals, school, etc.
good teacher
I found that he is very well prepared and he knows how to teach and be on the student level. He is a good teacher. He has the most respect for the class and we gained our respect for him as soon as he gave us our very first test.
He was really nice and helpful he's not like other teachers.
The fact that he was real open with ideas and was genuinely interested in all students made class and learning things within the class really helpful
He makes himself available to help us in class and what not. He was very well at describing our assignments on laulima so that we knew what to get back to say, if we had a essay, we can always go back into laulima to figure out what's our assignment about IN DETAIL.
His open door policy, all way ready to help.
that he knew what he was doing and always and was prepared all the time
William Dressler's methods of teaching was very fun in how he brought in games and also made it so you would actually enjoy do the assignments.
i found most valuable and helpful about william dressler was, having him teach what motivation is, having him open up my mind about being motivated and making dreams come true.
mostely he has a friendly attitude towards his students..
He is a great teacher
I absolutely loved this class. I recommend everyone to take this class their first semester of college. Makes you learn something new and makes you realize what you can learn from yourself. Also make you see how much you know.
wonderful instructor with lots of humor and made class enjoyable.
He is an easy instructor, enjoyed his class.
Mr William Dressier help you in class work and we would get you help with a tauter if you need one.
I found that asking questions was most valuable and helpful, I wasn't afraid to ask for help on any of my assignments.
Whenever I needed help i knew i could always go to Will for help and get a great answer back. Never let me down and was willing to work around problems i had with class work.
He is the man. Really nice and easy to talk too
He is very easy to talk to.
18. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.

do more physical activities, like maybe trust falls and things for relations
I would suggest that Mr. William Dressler get with other teachers to teach them his methods because some teachers appear to be having a hard time using up-to-date materials.
No suggestions
I think that this course needs to improve on more worksheets for the students to do in class.
N/A

4. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
I feel that by letting us write about what we know and then slowly transitioning to comprehensive writing made me more confident in myself.
What I found most valuable and helpful about this course was that it really helped transition into college life and it also helped me to better understand my work.
This course was a choice by me to be able to write better. What I understand now is that for me to write better, I need to take a look at this course and practice the principles that are in the book and work these each week with my own writing. You have to be a driven person to get good at writing and force yourself to write even when your not to excited about it. Another thing is that you have to practice the principles that Mr. Dressler has discussed with us. In a short 3 months your not going to create a professional writer that doesn't have a handle even on grammar at the moment. So I know that I need for English classes to be able to start focusing and learning all the new technics. I never knew that there was so many different writing styles and different methods of accumulating data to right about. What we were encouraged in this class is to write about the choices that we made. Next time classes may not be quite like this and the choice will be harder if you have to write about subjects that you know nothing about.
the course has taught me effective writing skills. this course is a great end to a new beginning. it has showed me that writing is more than just writing and making sure things make since but it showed me that it has a whole proccess to it.
the text book, information, samples and ideas from classmates. The instructor support to the students.
Mr. Dressler was always available to help, and would always give the information in a clear concise way.
My insructor has really assist me to develope stronger ideas and concepts that will help me improve my essay assignments. I am Blessed to be here.

17. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
his youtube presentations.
He knew a lot of information about the subject which helped a lot when it came to class time because, he could explain things clearly and with purpose.
This man is a role model teacher. He is not a hard ass teacher that is only there for a paycheck. He loves to teach and if there is anything that he can leave me is that learn to love to read and write and learn language and many of them. Widen my thinking ability, don't box your thinki lng into only one area of your life. He also encouraged all the students to be able to interact with each other. Each topic that we discussed was always open for discussion and he let everyone speak and feel comfortable about expressing themselves. I don't know if we had one student that finished the class that wasn't able to express themselves freely amongst each other. Will teaches like the text book, but makes it enjoyable, he makes you realize that college is a learning experience, make it fun but also think and start to think deeply. He expressed the need to learn how to link key words and sentences that make more sense, and are different. Learn words , expand your vocabulary, and also learn to be expressive with your words and look up new words to make your writings come alive and be real.
i found the most valuable and helpful by his good character and motivation
helpful, understanding, knowledgable
His activities, sharing info and brainstorming with other students. Samples, like videos. How it relates to the subject matter.
Said above.
That he takes the time to help not only me but everyone in group. His teaching is very acceptable, clear and understanding. His very patient, and takes his personal time to help me in all my work. He has even taught me to know how to use a computer. YES, I AM BLESSED.
18. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
maybe be a tad bit more stern.
Can't think of a single thing.
Will knows more about English at the moment than me. So I am really not the expert to be able to give Will advise. He has been teaching for more than ten years and it takes about 4 years of teaching before your even capable of being a half way decent teacher. So for teaching styles and methods, he is one of the best that I have at this school presently.

My first experience in college for a writing class which is basic English 22. I am not a brilliant person in English and if I get a half way decent grade in this class it is because I did the work. But as a student I have so much to learn about sentence structure and how to write something with persuasiveness. Thank you Will for being my professor and thank the college for letting me attend the class lead by William Dressler.

I wish I could have him in all my classes, because at my age, he knows how to make the concept of understanding easier.

4. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
The most valuable and helpful thing i found about this course is making wise decisions and how to be a better person.
I found out what kind of learner I really am and what I need to change to be a thinker. It won't happen over night but the tools are there. Also the Core learning principles are there for me to continue to practice. It is not easy for me as I have never been a real thorough person when it comes to reading. So this is a challenge and I will enjoy pursuing this in the future.
The free form learning experience
I found that by learning all types of ways in how to be successful in college was really valuable. It helps me get to be prepared for the unexpected in college. I found also by going through and realizing the ways we can better our self in college was by far helpful.
I really enjoyed this class. i learned more about myself and how to become successful.
I valued that he didnt teach like a teacher, everything we did was learning but in a fun way! Everybody likes that kind of teacher! All his assignments and everything we did in class really made me re think my whole life and what i'm going to do in the future!
This course has affected me in so many positive ways. The course has helped me to become a more confident individual by teaching me how to set up goals and accomplishing them. The course has allowed me to see how other people deal with the challenges of college, and showed me that I am not alone with dealing with challenges. The course how taught me how to be a successful individual who knows how to deal with stress and be an active listener.
we did fun activities
The steps into reaching my goals for college. To be a better person, thinker, confidence, how to manage my time more wisely. To grow and learn.
I got to be more open about me, and where I'm at in my walk and what I want to be in the future," God willing ".
I found everything ont his ocourse helpfull.
This course gave me useful advice and ways to be successful in not only college but life in general.
Learning how to use my time wisely.
I found most valuable and helpful about the course is that there is always group work in class that becomes teamwork to the the classwork done, and also that this class has help me get throught my first semester of college.
what i found to be most valuable about this course was time management and about becoming a creator instead of a victim.
Information in the book. I lesrned how to help myself become a better person in organizing my things, getting things done on time, and just having time for myself.
I loved all the hands on activities and the group activities.
Self-awareness
I found it helpful to reduce stress and it taught me to cope with negative and positive outcomes.
We were able to do things and learn things on our own and in groups.
The stress management. I dont think I have 'normal' stress levels of someone my age. So it was very helpful when we had to do the stress management paper :)
What I found valuable or helpful in this course is the four quadrant important and non important list. I use this to help me stay organized and lets me know what assignments I need to complete first, so I won't be overwhelmed doing every thing the night before.
It taught me better writing skills. It also taught me better ways to make my papers and essays flow better.
It helped me in forming better school habits and how to be more successful.
The strategies for managing time, self-esteem amongst other things
Realizing whats the best ways for me to learn. Also I learned new ways to get help in different subject.
I found a lot of things most valuable. Such as maintaining your life school wise and social wise; time management skills, and motivational skills. I appreciate all of the things we learned and will apply it to my life.
The thing that I found most valuable about this course was that it really helped me gain different skills for college. It really helped me especially since this is my first year.
I now have a better understanding about all that we have covered in class (success, motivation, self awareness, etc.) The fun activities we did in class helped us to learn about the topics and even about each other.
The most valueble thing i got from this class is accepting personal responsibility,taking controll of my attitude and emotions and knowing i have the power to choose to succeed or fail.This class has also help me to take charge and not let my stinkin thinkin stop me from taking chances of putting my ideas out there.
Working with others.
What I found the most valuable and helpful about the course are the activities that we do in class that relates with the chapter that we are studying. I also find doing the work on laulima helpful.
The fact that we all came closer together as a class was really helpful. I've become more confident in myself and I socialize a lot more than I used to. Always talking to each other in this class is what made this class really fun. And the fact this class was to teach about college life and how to be successful in it was what kept me interested in what I was learning everyday.
All of the different way to better yourself.
I found that using my On Course Book can help us in our life, and we should always read it. Going
i find it most helpful that it is my first year in college and that he is teaching us things that are appliable to what we can do and change such as the time managment, how to be positive , motivation, and everything we do in that class makes me want to be a better student.

17. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
He is really flexible about work and really helpful.
This guy cares about the people that he teaches. If you had to compare him to a teacher that just shows up to present material and get a paycheck. He is by far not that kind of person just to pick up a paycheck. He likes English and he also likes teaching Intro to College class also. Will teaches students and probes your mind and gets you to really think with the exercises that he has prepared. Not very often will you find someone that really loves what he does. I can't read his heart, but he loves to teach and love knowledge and getting people to use there knowledge. He respects what you say and if he disagrees is willing to express that thought also. Good teacher, wish I had him for all my classes.
Mr Dressler gave us multiple ways of learning the material and helped us, as a class, really shine individually
I found that by feeling free to help with any problems or difficulties dealing with class work helpful.
Hes very easy to talk to and you can go to him if you need any help.
Everything he taught us had to do with life and we could easily relate to everything!
Dressler is a great listener with lots of helpful feedback. He was always prepared and excited about class, and I think his excitement was infectious. His in-class activities were delivered well and easy to digest and remember. He was always available outside of class to deliver helpful info.
he's comfortable to talk to and he's fun
I find that he a real down to earth teacher. He cares about his student's and i like the way he assigns our assignments. He likes to put us in groups to get to know our classmates better. His knowledge to teach us, and he gives his own examples of what he went through in life to relate to our subjects. I really like how he relate to us and teaches us make us want to learn more. He make our homework fun to do and learn.
He knows exactly what a person needs to be more creditable in life. He is very valuable and I am very proud to be a student o his.
He was willing to help with our problems in class and out of class. He treated us like he treated other people.
He was a good teacher, he gave clear instruction and made class fun and interesting.
He will help you with anything & everything if he is able to.
I find most valuable and helpful about William Dressler is that he has helped me understand more of each topic and classwork that we have to learn and do.
he was very knowledgeable in his area of teaching in is there for his students when we need help.
Mr. Dressler is a knowledgeable man that can help us with dealing with time management and others, he's here to teach us what he knows and he is a good dad. Soon to be a good father as well.
I liked how he got the time to now every one in our class and he gave specific examples of his life to relate to the material he was teaching.
Compassionate, caring, thoughtful, always understood assignments.
William was a great teacher. I enjoyed attending all of his class with his positive learning outcomes. He taught many new things to me, like how to use laulima and smarthinking.
Everything. He was awesome!
He's a very good teacher and thorough with his class discussions. I enjoyed his class very much.
I find Mr. Dressler to be a very helpful teacher. If I have any questions or need help with anything, I know I can count on him.
What I found most valuable and helpful about William Dressler was his ability to explain assignments easily and knowledge on the subject.
He is a very understanding teacher and very helpful.
He's willing to help
Hes funny and makes learning interesting. Hes always there for us if we need help with any of our work.
William Dressler knows what he's talking about. I like how he adds a bit of humor to his lessons. And he's always there when a student is struggling.
The way he taught. He was very lively and didn't pressure students into doing certain activities or answering questions that he knew would make some feel uncomfortable.
I liked how Will is such a cool person, and is able to connect with students on a friendly level.
He has a great attitude he keeps learning interesting and fun he's always willing to help whenever somone needs help he's clear on what the assignments are how to do them and he even walks us through how to get to specific sites or programs necessary to complete homework.he is dedicated to what he is doing.
He is respectful to his students and seems knowledgeable about the subject.
How he was friendly from the very start and how he respect all of his students.
Will is an awesome instructor. He connects with the class very easily. By that, I mean that he knows how to handle students around my age and he could talk to us like we're all friends. And Will was always there to answer questions; gave advice and suggestions. Also, unlike other instructors, Will was always five to ten minutes early or just right on time.
He was always availbale and willing to help. Made class fun.
That he is a fun teacher and he loves hes job, your able to talk to him about the class and he will help you out. and he always ready for class.
His attitude is so great. Everyday i go into class he is always super happy and energetic and ready to get to learning and stuff which makes me more interested and wakes me up after so much time just sitting and learning.
18. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
nothing great teacher.
Will follows the text book, and if you follow the text book for Intro to College, then you can't go wrong, because this book is loaded with the information to prep you for life skills in college and also outside of college. Great text book for Intro to College. This book is something that should be shared for seventh grade students preparing them for Junior High and High School also.
Be nice to Chanee
Overall I can agree that the course was very well taught I don't think there's anything that was missing, just keep on doing the course how it was done. Which is having us do group activity's, getting us involved in class, doing power point presentations, and doing individual work.
Nothing. this class was great. i learned a lot of useful things that i can use in real life.
I have none, will was great!
Dressler could have more tests and quizzes through out the course perhaps.
umm idk
NO, HE IS DOING A EXECELENT JOB.

Continue to make class fun for students.
In my opinion there's no need to improve the course or Will's teaching style.
none
NA.
none he is a great teacher.
Keep up the good work!
There is NO improvement for the course or William.
nothing.
Nothing comes to mind.
His style of teaching is very fun. I have no suggestions for improvement. He gets the class to interact with each other everyday, and it is never boring.
can't think of a single thing.
uhh....
Group projects are fun, but to have them every class, not so much.
- NOTHING! I absoluely loved your class!
keep doing what your doing.
NO suggestions. Keep up the good work :)
None. Just keep what you're doing :)
Honestly, I don't see why there's a need to improve Will's teaching style or methods. He always had us in groups; which always kept the class awake and active. There was not one day I felt that his class wasn't fun because we always learned something interesting about college life.
more fun things!
Suggestions would be to maybe have more in class assignments or projects to do; but we already do some of those and it was fun so more would be good. Other than that i can't think of anything else.

Very interesting teacher and was fun to come to class twice a week as it was my best class and very interactive with each other in the class. I am much older than all of the people in the class, but everyone the way Will teaches I think all felt very comfortable.

THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU'VE DONE!
i learned alot about myself in this course and am satisfied i took it thankyou mr.dressler
Thank you! :) for being a such a great teacher and for making the class fun.
Honestly, in the beginning of the semester, I felt a little intimidated because of the fact that it was my first semester. I was afraid of meeting instructors that were really hard on students. But Will was actually one of the best teachers I've had this semester. Knowing how cool an instructor could be helped me feel really confident in college.
I really liked this class
