excellent teacher, takes time to help students, always available after and before class. Tests are predictable and doable, memorization is important. She goes slow for lectures and you can always ask for clarifications. She sends reminders when tests and projects are coming up. Loved her

Comment:
I've had Dr. Dolbec for many classes. She bases your grade off few things which I find unfair. I haven't retained much from her classes to be honest. I've enjoyed other literature courses taught by other professors more and found them more open than the courses taught by her. She is a nice woman but too rigid with her material/grading.

Comment:
By far the meanest and rudest professor Ive had. If you email her for questions or see her during office hours she will be unnecessarily sassy and make snarky remarks. Very heavy on tests and unless you treat her class like a religion, you wont do well. Steer clear if you can.

Dolbec is so so organized --- it's amazing. She's very smart and thorough with her lectures. GO TO CLASS. If you don't you won't pass. Be prepared to write a lot, word for word is the best way. Her tests are clear cut and same format each time. 10 technical terms and 2 long answer questions. Great prof!

Although she's a nice woman, I believe she sets her students up to fail by the way that she grades. Learning course content shouldn't be about stuffing as much info in your mind only up until the test, just to forget about it right after. It's unfortunate, as her content has a lot of potential to be interesting. Avoid if possible. Nice though!

Comment:
Extremely engaging lectures. Thorough in her literary analysis. You have to take a lot of notes and memorize them all for the test because she won't hint at what will be on them. But still easy compared to most English literature courses. You get to interpret a novel yourself in your final essay, which is the biggest challenge of the course.

Comment:
She is incredibly intelligent and extremely approachable. That's about it though... Her classes are very frustrating and stressful. Although there is usually only 2 tests and an essay, she requires you to study ALL the information she gives you in class for that unit (about 20 pages of notes). If you show up, study daily and read well, you'll do ok

Basically, you have to do everything as she tells you to, answer questions as she lectured in class. Give presentations as she outlined in class. If things are not the way she wants, even if they are right will not give you the grade for it, even if you show her that you are right. She is stuck in her ways, will not take her again.

Comment:
Attending every single class is mandatory if you want to pass. Requires you to take pages and pages of notes each class and memorize it all for the tests, though she is at least clear about what she's looking for. Grades way too tough and puts too much focus on grammar for a literature class. She's sweet, but I wouldn't take her unless I had to.

Great teacher overall, I just wish her lectures weren't so long. She's super nice and tries to learn everyone's name so I have respect for her for that. Ask her questions and she'll love you.

She orates a lot of information in every class, missing a class for any reason constitutes not having enough information to successfully pass the exams. When asked question or any comments are voiced she talks down to students.

Talks 90 mph and expects you to write everything she says. Definitions on her tests are way more complex than what she tells you in class so make sure you know them inside and out. Extremely hard marker.

She is a hard marker because she expects a lot from students. She is incredibly organized and knowledgeable. Sometimes she was hard to follow because of her word choice and speed. I liked her, but the class was a challenge. Take good notes and remember to be thorough when studying.
