4. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
English is not one of my best subjects, but Jen made the classes more fun to learn for me. I have hated english since I can remember, but so far this is the best that I have ever done in an English class. I slack sometimes, but she is always willing to work with us.
it's english class, i learn something new everyday. it will prepare me for upcoming essaya.
I like the fact that Jen takes the time to go over your paper with you even when she has corrected it.
All the class activities were helpful and all the class discussions.
How to write better essays and in the processing of learning MLA and not plagiriazing.
Jennifer always had her best intreset for her students. If we ever needed help we could go to her office or simply e-mail her, and she always responded.
I found that this course helped me to develop a habit in my writing skills. It is a habit I suddenly picked up, and only noticed when I had to write a report for another subject. also i noticed more of a profession change when writing my journals for other classes.
I learned to become a better writer and a editor during her class. She took the time to sit down and work with you individually.
The course taught me new information on how to write a stong and powerful essay and how to determine any grammatization errors and the use of punctuations correctly.
This class was a little challenging for me but its only cause i did it to myself. Jen is a really good teacher. It always helps to have a good teacher in any subject.
The course was valuable because Jen Aly made it possible by helping us students when we needed help and the course was helpful for me in the future.
I found the personal meetings to discuss our essays and the corrections that was needed to be done, very useful. With the many essays that were presented to us, it gave me a chance to improve myself.
Throughout this course, I have found that her one on one consultations, usually following the final draft of an essay, were very helpful. Not only because she could elaborate further on our errors and why we were penalized for them, but also to give us helpful suggestions and encourage us to revise if we had the opportunity.

12. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
Maybe learn more out of the Hacker guide.
i dont think there is anything wrong, she makes the the class enviorment so welcoming. every teacher so down toearth like ms. Aly.
Some of the papers we wrote were kind of boring. I did not care for the interview essay.
N/A
Jennifer really did a good job teaching me about english 100 and she did it with fun. I never had a english class like this one. it was very straight to the point and it felt like everything had a point. and it never felt like she was wasting my time.
I understand that it is college style writing, but if the class assignments were more spread out. I felt like it was one more after another... but i feel it would be well worth it.
Nothing really, i found her course to be very educational and helpful.
She should be a liitle stricter so that the students will really do their homeworks.
Maybe give a drive to get assignments done and turned in.
The course can improve on more group work discussions
I didn't see any room for improve. I found the class enjoyable and engaging. Fun moments were had and learning about course material was interesting.
I think that this course can be improved by encouraging activities for the entire class, rather than separating into groups.
13. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
She is a great teacher. She is young and lively and gets involved with the students. Always cracking up. It's FUN!
Ms. Aly should stick to the teaching process she has now.
She is a good teacher, and will take the time to help students individually.
She is a very good teacher and really cares about the students progression.
EXCELLENT!
Jennifer is very fair, orgagnized, and every time i went to class i learned something.
Great teaching ability, and very encouraging!
Great. she took the time to help and she was happy to help. Overall i think she was a great teacher.
She is great. Her personality made the course interesting. She made the class fun that made the students want to come to class everyday.
Well educated in the english subject... and she's funny too.
a great english 100 teacher
Jennifer Aly goes a step further to make sure that her students improve. With the one on one time she provided for discussion, she helped me to understand the material much better. She gives her own personal time away to help me and I was appreciative of her efforts.
That she is a very educated and patient teacher. She has both authority over her class, and possess the unique ability to laugh and grow along with the students.
14. Other comments:
Good teacher and understanding
My favorite paper i did was the evaluation, and personal experience. I really like the research paper because it allows me to choose what i want to do and each choice has something to learn. and it really helps to find out who I am as a person, and what i want to do.
I feel that a more effective way to lecture the students or give them advice about their papers or other work is to relate it to the real world, or a personal experience. With that being said, I think that it would be more effective to advise and lecture the students using examples from every day life, rather than sticking to the book all the time.
