Quarter: Fall 2021
Grade: A
Dec. 21, 2021

The workload of this class was hell in the beginning but as you reach week 5 or 6, you will get comfortable with the pace of the class. Make sure you attend EVERY class and complete EVERY HOMEWORK on time. The class is a cakewalk unless you challenge the professor. You will genuinely feel yourself get better with your writing. The lessons are super useful. There are tons of group activities and he always appreciates new ideas and voices. Talk to him during office hours and discuss your narrative's progress. He is always friendly and gives the best advice.
Pro tip: A+ is 99-100%, A is 90+%
so don't stress if you mess up one or two homework.

Mr. Crosby is cool at first but then he becomes heartless later on. He grades very straight to the point and you will have a good grade as long as you do your work. But one thing that ticks him off is PHONES and TARDIES, so don't do that. The final he gave us was absolute TRASH. He never clearly explained how to do the essay or gave us a clear example. He grades our essays so unfairly and never responded back to my emails. I literally had an A in his class for the 6 weeks and it unfairly dropped the last week. Crosby has no life and now I see why. He thinks he knows everything but he doesn't and has no heart about that final or how to recover your grade knowing you were a good student. Overall good class and teacher, but be careful with him cuz he can stab you in the back when you least expect it.

This guy is nice but not accomodating to tardies or absences. I would not recommend taking this class but if you have to definitely do not schedule it right after another class. His policy is that every two tardies will lower your grade by an entire letter grade. This means that if you log into the zoom thirty seconds late or have any sort of technical problems you will be marked tardy with no questions asked. There is a lot of work for this class but it is not extremely difficult so just make sure you keep up and you will be fine.

I think from the overall scores and reviews TAKE THIS CLASS. Its probably going to fill up due to all the amazing reviews but if you can takeeee ittttt. Homework is what you review in class so class times is always a discussion class rather than boring lectures! There is only one essay in which you turn it into a scholarly research essay. I cannot stress this enough it's an easy A if not easy B.
