Online Instructor recommendations for ENG112,POLS101,ARTH110

Postby Aqeeli » September 13th, 2011, 11:13 pm

Hello everyone I hope everyone is having a great semester thus far!

I'm scheduling early for next semester, and I was wondering if anyone can recommend me an specific online instructor to any of these classes: ENG 112, POLS 101, and ARTH 110.

Also any thoughts or tips regarding these classes are highly appreciated. I am just curious to know from who ever took these classes were they challenging or easy going? If you would take them again would you prefer them on campus than online?

Thanks in advance !

I had Professor Nevins out of Columbus for ENG 112, I had him for several classes because I enjoyed his teaching style. We wrote one really big paper in that class but it was nice because he broke it up into different sections with one section due about every other week. All we had to do was edit the sections together and we had our final paper. I think we had to do some discussion posts but they were really easy and didn't take much time. He was very concerned about everyone doing well in his class(if you made the effort) and always emailed me back promptly if I had any questions. I ended the class with an A.

I have Christopher Allbright in Anderson for ENGL112, and I love him.

I realize this is going to win me lots of enemies, but I'm always leery when I hear "this instructor makes sure everybody does well".... I am tired of taking classes with people who "did well" via nice instructors but don't know a darn thing and are carrying that ignorance proudly towards their associate's degree. It's frustrating in the classroom, and even more frustrating in the work place!

I can understand you wanting to be leery about "an instructor that makes sure everyone does well", but Prof Nevins knows his stuff. He has a masters in English(I believe) and served on a peer review English journal for Purdue University. He really does care that a student understands what he is teaching. I actually came out of his class liking to do annotative bibliography because I learned how they can keep me organized when doing a big research paper. However the student needs to make the effort to want to do well, if you didn't do the work he was very hard on you. I would say the average grade in my class was a B, but if you worked hard he gladly gave you an A.

Well for 112 I had Ehlen and there was weekly discussion board, five papers, and I think an annotated bibliography. It wasn't too bad at all.
