Comment:
I had Don as a professor for the ENG-103 hybrid course. His lectures aren't mandatory, but I would recommend attending. Almost all of his assignments are based on topics covered in his lectures. His assignment instructions and grading criteria are very vague, so if you're a student that needs a lot of structure, I would go with a different prof!

Great guy, super chill, and cracks a lot of "jokes". There weren't a lot of assignments and the ones I did get were really easy. No final exam or midterm. For hybrid class, he will explain and teach concepts and then you will write in class and everyone will have to read what they wrote and he will give feedback after you finish. Very easy.

Comment:
Every class was basically the same, you just talk to the people around you about the reading. It wasn't really guided very much, as he would give one topic to discuss but then you would have an hour to discuss it. Pretty boring. He is a nice prof though, and the class is pretty easy.

Comment:
Don has dry sense of humor. He made jokes in every sentence, and I couldn't stand them. Pretty much the entire course was: read the story/poem, discuss with peers in class, listen to his bad jokes every 10 min or so. His marking was slow, but it was fair. Graded on 5 things, 4 of which are essay-based, and then 1 grammar quiz. Optional attendance.

Don is funny but lectures are boring as we just talk to our peers and Donn about the readings. Attending class is optional at least! Assignment instructions are very vague as well as the grading criteria, but he is a fair marker. He is open to giving due date extensions too!

Comment:
Don is a oddly humorous prof. Lectures are boring and dry but they are optional. That being said, he, along other students do make good points/analysis on the readings so those are helpful when writing papers and exams. Grading is slowwww but fair. Don focuses on grammar too.

Comment:
Dr. McMann is a good prof for students who dont need structure and who are already knowledgeable about creative writing subjects. I found that we would do a few readings and then talk about the readings, but were not given actual instruction on how to write our assignments. I had to google what the type of writing even was. He is funny though.

If you want a generally easy class take it with him, pre warning though... you wont get any grades back till the end of the semester. I barely went to class, only went the days that he handed out assignments (which is in the syllabus). Yes he marks firmly but if you run your essays through grammarly or something you will be fine.

He was very engaging and hilarious throughout the class and clearly was really passionate about everything he was teaching. He was a bit slow on grading, but he gave very thorough feedback and thoughtful grades on everything. The wait was for a quality review of our projects and was very worthwhile and educational.

Dr. Mcmann prepares some amazing and very memorable lectures. He is a hilarious man, who really cares about his students. He is very approachable, and tries his best to make sure his students understand concepts. However, he takes forever to mark assignments.

So funny and quirky. He is very smart and his humor is fast. I missed a lot of his classes and got an A minus. So just imaging what you would get if you went every time. Easy and enjoyable if you show up. Oh and make sure to read In Cold Blood. He gave us a quiz that was one question about one scene in the book that you'd only know if you read it.

I really enjoyed Don's Creative Writing class. I admit at first I was irritated with how often we're expected to read our own work in class (I'm sure I'm not the only one who is shy about their own writing) but he really pulled me out of my shell and I appreciate that a lot. He's also hilarious with a great imagination. He is perfect for this class

Loved him as a prof. He was such a genuinely nice guy and easy to approach to ask questions. The night I was going to hand in one of my big papers, the whole file corrupted and he gave me a weeks extension. Hes a nice guy and a good prof in my opinion.

Professor Don was very funny and caring. Class attendance is mandatory but that's okay because he makes English enjoyable. Grammar is very important to him so make sure you proofread. The only downside is sometimes he does mark things a little late.

Don is such an amazing prof, he cares about his students and gives many activities during the class to make sure you understand the material clearly. There was no final exam just a grammar quiz and it was only one page. Honestly a GPA booster. Loved his personality and his teaching style. 10/10 would recommend.

very easy course, he is a very easy marker and he is funny. he isn't very strict and takes everything pretty much as a joke but in the best way because it destresses you. if you want easy marks, great prof.

McMann is a very funny professor. Group discussion are common place, and he is quite knowledgeable. The only quarrel to mention is that rubrics for assignments such as essays are not given, and are not easily accessible.
