ENGL 1102
English Composition II
5*****
Pros: I really like Professor Bounds! She is nice, and she grades easily (by far the easiest grader I have ever had)! I've never seen her give anyone below a B on an essay. She is approachable and helpful if you have any questions about anything.
Cons: Honestly, I can't think of any.
I had her for 1101, and I liked her so much that I took her for 1102. Take her! Everyone in my class liked her a lot!

ENGL 1101
English Composition I
5*****
Pros: Bounds is very nice



Grades mostly based on whether you follow her instructions



Approachable, helpful during office hours



Easy grader
Cons: Class topic not very interesting (to me at least)



Grades mostly based on whether you follow her instructions (will explain later)
If you have the opportunity I would definitely suggest Professor Bounds for an 1101 teacher. Her class is very easy (the only "homework" is working on essays while the only "projects" are those essays + portfolio) and she is nice and approachable. The class is only boring if no one participates! The only downside (or positive, depending on who you are) is that she grades according to how strictly you follow the analyzation process. If you are a strong writer then this can be kind of frustrating—no matter how well-written your paper is, you can get below an A if you aren't great at writing analytically. This is sort of a good thing though (strengthens your analytical writing) and on the other hand, she doesn't demand much from you at all plus she is super helpful during office hours. I got an 85 on my first paper, made a very small number of edits after speaking with her during office hours, then made a 100 on the revised paper. I definitely recommend this class!

ENGL 1101
English Composition I
5*****
Pros: Professor Bounds is the best teacher I have ever had!

Pretty easy grader as long as you turn the work in on time.

She is extremely nice.

She is not scared to give you an A.

I made a 97 on my first paper, and 93 on my second paper, and a 100 on my third paper! TAKE HER!!

Although she has something due every class, she never checks to see if you did it. I suggest doing it every night to stay on top of things.

If you have a question, ask her after class because she will tell you exactly what to do.
Cons: Go to every class because you might get a little lost.
TAKE HER!!!!!!!!!!!!1

5*****
Pros: Great personality, genuinely cares about you and your grade individually, fairly easy grader
Cons: you have to attend class very often to fully understand homework/classwork/papers, etc.
Love Dr. Bounds! She is super sweet and is always available for extra help if needed. She does use technology A LOT (all of the class/papers turned in online in Emma or even Prezi) so just have an open mind as far as that's concerned. It's easier to get the hang of than most think.

ENGL 1101
English Composition I
5*****
Pros: 1. Nice person

2. Easy grader

3. Easy homework

4. Cool accent
Cons: 1. Have to write first drafts of essays very quickly

If you can get her, you should! She wants you to get a good grade. She is helpful and doesn't make you do too much work. You write 3 1,000 word essays throughout the semester along with the portfolio. You have to do your 3rd essay on prezi (it's hard at first, but you'll get used to it).

ENGL 1101
English Composition I
4****
Pros: Super nice! One of the most reasonable professors I have had. She is clear with her expectations and gives lots of chances for you to revise your work. Very helpful and open.
Cons: She always assigns the 950 word drafts due by next class so you'll definitely be in a time crunch at the beginning of each paper.
The class requires a lot of writing so be prepared for that. You also definitely need a laptop.

Pros: Soooo Easy

Technology used/ Creative Class
Cons: N O T H I N G !
I LOVE her. I got an A in the class and it was so interesting. She was a very engaging teacher. The papers were non traditional. We had to use Prezi for our paper instead of emma which allowed to make use of my creative juices. I don't think she goes here anymore, sucks to be you!

Pros: The best teacher! You have to do more work than other 1102 classes just because you actually do things in class, but you will learn a lot and it is EASY to get an A if you do what she tells you. You also will get to learn how to use prezi software
Cons: Essays are a very step by step process
take her she is the best!!!!!
