Professor Gabriel was a pretty tough teacher, but he explains the text material pretty well in class. I took ComLit4AW with him and the class had around 20 people; so it was a good environment to discuss and ask questions. There are 4 essays for the class, each around 3-5 pages long. It's good that he doesn't make you write like 7-8 pages. For me, I spent a lot of time writing each essay, analyzing the text beforehand, close-reading the texts, marking the texts with post-its. As long as you analyze the text well enough and support your ideas with examples from the text, he'll give you a good grade. However, he doesn't do revisions, so the grade you get what you get. I got A-'s for all my papers. I guess there's always something wrong with a paper; but for all my papers, he always noted that I should proofread before turning it in. So maybe he takes off from the grade for grammar or spelling mistakes. My overall grade was an A- for this class. I wouldn't not suggest you to take his class, but I think writing II might be easier at a community college.
