ENG 1320
COLLEGE WRITING II
5*****
Pros: Awesome teacher!!! The readings are interesting and relevant. Papers are graded fairly and he really does a lot to push you in the direction of success.
Cons: The only con I can think of is he holds you until the end of class almost every day. Its almost as if he intentionally makes sure it takes the whole class period... Outside of that, Professor Dean is pretty much a bad ass.
Most of the semester deals with sexuality, gender, and how many stories we tell and hear time and time again relate to society's attitudes. I found this to be very interesting and it made it very easy for me to get engaged in the class. I can see how some people wouldn't be too interested in it, but if you are interested in culture, human sexuality, and questioning the norm, this class is for you! Homework comes in the form o f assigned readings and quizzes almost every class. The reading load isn't a lot, but if you aren't consistent with getting your readings done, it could hurt your grade. John is easily my favorite teacher I have had thus far hear at Texas State and probably the best English teacher I have ever had in my life.

Pros: makes the class fun with the break down of fairy tales, uses videos and fun things to help understanding
Cons: lots of out of class reading, its easy but gets annoying sometimes, also has frequent quizzes over the reaeding
he was a cool teacher, he wants you to do well, and wont tell you but he does allow revisions on papers. lots of in class discussion and if you participate he wont give quizzes. overall a pretty good class, i enjoyed it!

He is a great teacher; he really makes you think about life. He knows a lot!! He is pretty difficult, but visit him in office hours. Great guy overall. He doesn't let out early, though. AND there's an attendance policy.
