Comment:
You can get an A once you have his style figured out, although it's frustrating. When writing journals or essays he focuses mostly on length. If you write crap on ten pages and crap on five pages, the ten page paper will get a higher grade. Also, go out on a limb and do something he would consider creative, usually this means something corny.

Arbitrary grader, unclear syllabus, learned nothing in the class, quantity not quality, he is condescending, offensive, and not helpful. I wish I hadnt taken this class and I dont recommend it.

Professor Brockmann is a great teacher! He taught me how to look at classical literature in a different way. And, the journals and papers we wrote really improved my critical thinking and writing skills. He loves creatvity!!! Be creative and think outside the box in class and on your assignments!The classroom atmosphere is really relaxed and fun!

WARNING!!!! Do NOT take this professor by any means! I have never had below a B in a class before and can not even get a C in this one...and I am a CLASSICS major in a classical lit class! The man is impossible, calls you stupid when you ask for help and is the most unfair teacher I have ever met. DO NOT TAKE HIM!

Comment:
Easily the worst professor at the university. Arrogant, elitist and condescending, he doesn't even know how to pronounce "Deuteronomy" despite his "credentials" as a chaplain and such. Poor class planning...nothing due the first month and then EVERYTHING due all at once. Class could be interesting but his ego gets in the way

Really bad professor!!! I got sick and had to have surgery and he was so unwilling to let me turn in an assignment a little late that I ended up having to drop the class. POINTLESS assignments and a lot of watching movies for no reason. I was stupid and didn't listen to everyone else's comments- trust me- do not take this class with him!

Comment:
This professor is by far one of the worst I have ever experienced anywhere. His instructions were never clear and he was rarely available for help. His syllabus clearly states that he does not assign A's, so don't expect one. This man is extremely arrogant and condescending. AVOID THIS CLASS AT ALL COSTS!!

Comment:
Three words: useless, vague, and arbitrary. That sums up this man's teaching and grading. I got my first C+ on a paper in this class, and I'm a Dean's List English major. He'll love you if you participate, no matter how inane your comments. He's a ditz who holds your grade in the palm of his hand. BACK. AWAY. SLOWLY.

Comment:
Took CD-Rom course, which made this difficult class even worse. It shouldn't have been that hard (it's a 200 level class!), but this guy assigns the most meaningless assignments ever. This class was more stress and busywork than all the others I took that semester put together. DON'T TAKE IT WITH HIM, you'll thank yourself that you didn't.

Comment:
By far the absolute worst professor I've ever had. This class will actually make you dumber. He's exceptionally arrogant and condescending. His writing assignments are insultingly basic. Makes you label the "five parts" of each paper. Gives arbitrary grades. A waste of my time, my tuition and my intelligence. DO NOT TAKE THIS PROF.

What a waste of time. The whole class was structured around comparing Biblical and Classical works to such relevent films as Mad Max, Grand Canyon, some completely terrible Alec Baldwin movie, and other such drivel. What was the point of me taking this class?

This man is an absolute a**. Refused to meet with me after he assigned rewrites. Told me he would laugh if he ever received my resume/ cover letter for a job (The same ones I used and got interviews with top firms in my industry). Untimely responses to email. This class isn't worth the headache. Take ENGL312 for an easy 2nd writing. NOT THIS!!

Okay. I'm on the Dean's list. I'm an English major. I like to think I'm reasonably intelligent. Don't take this class. He's arrogant and assuming, assigns busywork and grades randomly. He doesn't know half that he thinks he does, and his own English is often lacking. Apparently my last assignment was my "least best". Thanks for that. Avoid this guy

I actually enjoyed this class. Brockman did an excellent job teaching it--getting an A is just damn near impossible. Go to every lecture and pay attention, you will have no problems at all. I finished the semester with a B.

Comment:
do not take this man for a literature class. he had us write in his business and tech writing style, to the point where if you wrote it like a reg english paper he'd take off points. the textbooks were useless, and discussions had nothing to do with assignments. I still got As and Bs, but I've learned NOTHING.
