Advanced Expository Writing: Techniques of Argumentation
Laurence is an incredibly sweet, nice and open-minded person. Her classes are a lot of fun. Her French is very charming. She encourages you to participate, helps you with any questions or difficulties you may have, she's always available at office hours and she really cares about her students. To all those complaining about her giving homework on a regular basis... Of course she gives you homework, this is college and I would assume that if you want to learn something, you should expect that. She's very understanding and she pushes you to truly improve your French. I'm taking Fr101 and I can definitely see that my written skills are so much better now. Take her!
With Jansma, you either love her or hate her. My fate was the latter. She's extremely disorganized, and didn't stick to the syllabus at all, unclear about what she expected from us in terms of deadlines, and wasn't consistent with her use of the website. She also was very narrow-minded of what she wanted from our work, which was annoying, since 101 is after all, a creative writing class. I really do not recommend her.
