No grades are available.
Heavy workload. Must do all of the readings for every class (which is all horribly boring Native-American based literature), write a quotation journal on the readings every week, and re-write your papers over and over again.. This class was 3X as hard as English Composition 3... I ABSOLUTELY DO NOT RECOMMEND
Amazing english teacher!!! Popham drastically changed my writing style and was super helpful in writing our essays. She is very welcoming and is willing to help every student to her best abilities. She is dedicated and has good office hours. I got an A- in the class and did all the work. I would have gotten the solid A if I would have revised my essays more.
Everybody that can take her class should take it! Her work load is not heavy at all and everything she makes you do helps you in writing your essays. There is no busy work. Everything she does is to help you. She is a fair grader so if you don't put the effort into the essays, it will show in the grade. As long as you come to class willing to work, you should be fine in the class.
Loved her class!!

Take her, Take her, Take her! If you're like me and have a mental block when it comes to writing then you will absolutely love her. She breaks everything down for you and explains what is expected of you. She always sends you reminders about the homework so you never forget and she is just about the sweetest lady when it comes to asking questions. Never once did I feel frightened or intimidated in her class..and if you're like me and don't enjoy being forced to talk in class- then this is the class for you. As long as you have a pleasant look on your face and smile every once in awhile that's your participation grade. You don't need to stress out about voicing your opinion about anything in her class. Yes, as others have put it- she does give a lot of busy work. But that's okay because it's easy busy work! Take this class, you won't regret it.
