Professor Holten is everything, and more! Honestly, any professor that takes the time out to meet with their students INDIVIDUALLY outside of the classroom deserves to be put on a pedestal. Professor Holten doesn't simply lecture and regurgitate useless information, but she ACTUALLY teaches her students and genuinely cares for each of their well beings. She is extremely down to earth amongst a sea of uptight lecturers, which shows how she truly cares about teaching and developing her students. I took 6W after haven taken another Writing II course earlier, and can definitely say I don't regret that decision. The class is extremely organized and structured, making it near impossible to not succeed. The only negative of this class would have to be the 8 am meeting time for all us sleepy students. I can't stress enough how good of a course this was, and urge other students to take this course if you want to not only learn something, but have fun while you're doing it.
Simply put, the best english teacher I have ever had in my entire life. The conferences are really effective because each student gets 30 minutes of 1:1 meeting to get feedbacks on how to improve my paper. Your grade is guaranteed if you simply listen to her directions carefully and follow it. I'm not hesitant to keep in touch with her later on because she's such a nice person and very caring.
