A compassionate woman but a HORRIBLE professor.
No one ever walks away from her class with a failing grade so long as they make a truly genuine effort. She’s amongst the dying population of professors that will spend so much time with any student crying for clarification or help; Prof. Rowe willingly prints her home phone number on the syllabus. I’ve always sought her out during office hours or arranged appointments where we’d sit until my plate was clear. Her teaching skills however are nowhere as stellar…
In class, her notes and lectures are so haphazard!! Yabbering at the speed of light, she spews her information and expects everyone present to have absorbed and digested it fully. In an age of retirement, chalk etchings are ALL OVER THE BOARD, following her streamline flow of thought. With this tactic, taking her for Milton made it all the more hellish. From outdated references and allusions to handouts that can mean little to nothing, I found myself Googling everything for clarification.
Her tests sent nearly everyone to death row:-P They consisted of inquiries about the most minute and meaningless of details. Unless you had the text downloaded into your brain, good luck!
I took Milton with Professor Rowe over the summer, which was very hard because we smushed a great deal of literature into 6 weeks. However, I think Rowe handled this incredibly well, and communicated a great deal of information as clearly as possible over a short period of time. I appreciated her handouts, her detailed and thought-out lectures, her fantastic interpretations, and her sincerity and enthusiasm. Her exams are difficult, but not unreasonable, and her grading is totally fair. She pays detailed attention to paper submissions, and will put your paper through a typewriter, cover it with notes and suggestions, and hand it back with an A. She actually cares about teaching and helping her students to become better writers. If you haven't got it in you to give her class a lot of attention, then don't take her class. If, however, you are ready to throw yourself in, you will do well because she will help you do well. I recommend her highly, and have NO complaints about her teaching style, her class in general, or her grading system.
