Quarter Taken: Fall 2017 Submitted June 5, 2018 Grade Received: A-

Such a sweet lady, one of my easiest A's. All you have to do is write and say what she wants you to say. Your first few papers are just for her to gauge where you are, and so they only receive a provisional grade. The last one, she just wants you to apply her feedback. She's super chill and funny, I'd take her again.

Quarter Taken: Fall 2017 Submitted Feb. 25, 2018 Grade Received: A

Professor Lisle is an excellent professor and an easy A! There are only 3 essays for the year; after you turn in the rough draft, she schedules a meeting with you and reviews your paper and gives you a provisional grade and tells you what to fix. As long as you fix exactly what she wants and participate some in class with the readings, this class will be a breeze. Her essay prompts are pretty easy and she uses the same ones every year and gives examples of past work. These can guide you in what she wants as well!

Easy class. She is very nice. I definitely recommend taking her class.

Quarter Taken: Fall 2016 Submitted Dec. 20, 2016 Grade Received: A

Professor Lisle is very nice and friendly. In the class, there are usually readings assigned weekly from the course reader along with 3 essays over the course of the quarter. For each paper, you must attend a conference with her where she gives you tips for improvements and a potential grade. At the end of the quarter, your "final" is turning revisions of the three papers, which if you do the corrections effectively, you will most likely get an A. Also participation is important so attendance and speaking up in class will be helpful for your grade! Overall, a pretty easy class, and the workload is manageable and very doable.

Professor Lisle is a great professor. She is very engaging during the lectures and does her best to help her students excel in the class. The class is composed of 3 essays total. The first 2 are ones that are around 4-5 pages long while the 3rd essay is a research paper that is around 5-7 pages long. She strives to help her students be the best by having appointments to review your essay where she will meet with you one on one to grade them. Although I was intimidated at first, she was very easy going and helpful which made me want to meet with her regarding my essays. I would definitely recommend her! I wish she taught English Composition 3 but I'm glad to have taken her class.

Quarter Taken: Winter 2016 Submitted March 31, 2016 Grade Received: B

She's a really cool professor. She tries her best to help you when you are writing your essays which in this case were 3. You start off with 3 and then those get revised , until you have a finalized version to submit together as a portfolio. Then, you have one-on-one meetings with her where she gives you a provisional grade , and tells you how to make the paper better so you could start your revisions. Personally, most of the comments I received where grammatical so I'm not sure if it was good , or she just doesn't go into full detail. Besides the essays , you have readings from the course reader, which you will most likely review in class and where participation is important. Overall , the work is acceptable and she's a really nice lady who is there to help.

3 essays
very easy class.. TAKE LISLE !!
she reads your essays...( Mostly checks grammer in my opinion- she focused more on what you did right and not what you did wrong... so i found her corrections useless)

make significant corrections on your essays after she reads them....she wants change not just the grammer corrections she made

received an A :)

Professor Bonnie is an amazing professor. She's so kind and helpful. In order to be successful in her class I would really suggest to go in during her office hours and ask her to look at your essays. Just ask her to go through the major revisions and ask if there's anything you can improve on. That's the way to be successful in her class. That's how I got an A!
