FOR HONORS 63W (Nabokov):

As a person, Mr. Stone has a stellar personality. He engages the class well and does a great job with keeping you interested!

The only thing negative to say is his grading. If you are looking for an A or an easy class, then stay away. Mr. Stone is completely subjective when it comes to grading and he barely gives you any guide on how to how to obtain a certain grade. For a Writing II course, he barely provides any feedback on how to improve as a writer and gives you one chance on each paper to improve. Even if you make every little change he suggests, he will continue to subjectively grade the paper and find other things to bash that he chose not to tell you on the first draft.

The material was interesting itself but the class would have been more enjoyable if his grading was not so random and subjective.

I honestly enjoyed this class, it's the most fun and interactive English class I've taken so far. TO be frank, the class was hard at times. It depends on how your writing and comprehensive skills are. I felt dumb at times but the professor is so good at encouraging you while guiding you to the writing style you need to be at in college. I'd recommend this class to anyone if you want to improve your writing skills and take a worthwhile class. Plus, the whole class is based on fairy tales! It was fun to read the Grimm and Perrault versions and discuss the importance of fairy tales through discussion and writing.
