Chism made me remember why I was doing the English minor, and reminded me of why I love English so much. Her passion and enthusiasm for her work inspired me when taking 10A.

I would have liked to have her as a stand-alone professor to experience her style fully and isolated but since it was a co-teaching class, I couldn't. I think it compromised the teaching quality at times, since class was sometimes rushed since she wouldn't be able to teach until a week later.

Other than that, totally recommend her!

Chism is awesome! She is passionate, and her lectures are both well-organized and thought-provoking.

Very knowledgable and interested in her students on a personal level. A fair grader. Course is reasonably strenuous.

Professor Chism is a total nerd. In a good way. The first day of class she recited lines from "Beowulf" in the Old English and it was as if she had cast a spell on the entire class. I kid you not, you could hear a pin drop in that classroom. Her exams are easy and her paper topics are straight forward. The only thing I would suggest to get a good grade in her class is to GO and PAY ATTENTION.

Chism is a very passionate professor. I took her for Engl 10A and she was definitely very knowledgeable about old/medieval and renaissance literature--in her class she focused a lot on poems. However, like other english classes her workload is a little ambitious but seems somewhat manageable.

Class is structured as such: 3 papers a midterm and a final. papers are usually 4-5 pages but if she feels like people need extentions she'll grant them. In my class people had a lot going on and instead of having us turn in two papers after the midterm she had us submit a 7-8 page paper a week before the final. Papers weren't terrible, the topics were pretty decent. Tests weren't too hard either, they were pretty straight forward and definitely one of those "you either know it or you dont, you either read it or you didnt" type of scenarios.

all in all, i would highly suggest!
