Writing and Style
5*****
Dr. Langstraat was awesome. She made me passionate about things that I never new I was. She went above and beyond to help me outside of class. The assignments, although time, consuming were riveting and kept my attention. I left her class with a piece of writing that I can truly be proud of. She simply brings out the best in people.

Dr. Langstraat was one if not the best teacher I have had at CSU. This class was hard, no doubt about it, and with any other teacher it would have been misreable. However, Langstraat makes this class well worth it. Her lectures are fun, exciting and intriguing. You can tell she is very excited about what she is teaching, and really cares about what you think and making sure that the material is understood. She is also very great with helping students outside of class. Her assignments are hard and time consuming, but will help you have a firmer grasp on the topic and you can be very creative with them. In the class she also made an effort to know each students on a personal level, she built a good classroom community. She expects a lot from her students in attendence, participation, and quality work. But it was well worth the effort. I loved this class, and its assignments. I would recommend this class and professor to any one.

I took the class on the last 4-week summer track, so it moved VERY quickly. I was kind of indifferent on the material that we read, some I liked, and some I didn't. Dr. Langstraat's lectures and class discussions are WONDERFUL though. It made the three hour class fly by. She is a brilliant woman, and a total sweetheart. She does expect you to put in effort though--attendance and class participation were important. Dr. Langstraat has a way of putting value on everybody's comments and insights, so even if you're timid to speak out in class she'll make you feel confident and important. I left the class feeling like I had made friends with everyone there.

College Composition (GT-CO2) - INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS
5*****
Pros: Very helpful, will always take time out of her own schedule to assist her students with school or anything they need! Focused on making better writers and teaching rhetoric, not cramming definitions and standardized systems of writing.
Cons: None
A fantastic person and very friendly. Takes care of her students and is willing to listen to reasonable discussions about extra help if needed.

Principles of Writing and Rhetoric
4****
Pros: Amazing as a person and really knows what she's talking about when it comes to rhetoric. Best sense of humor and not afraid at all to speak her mind.
Cons: Structured the class well but didn't seem to provide actual tools for writing using rhetoric as the class name would suggest.
Quizzes were infrequent, and one big paper at the end with an additional take-home essay final.
