Comment:
Great Professor. Class is an easy pass if you have basic writing skills, graded on four papers and weekly discussion posts. Definitely take his suggestions on the essays, and after the first three meetings class is totally online so really as long as you do the weekly posts and write a 2 decent essays expect the easiest A in college ever.

Whipple knows that English classes aren't supposed to be subjectively hard. He is a very fair grader and realizes good work.

Easy A in the sense that this class is an embarrassment to Creighton and higher education

Lectures are amazing in how little Dr. Whipple prepares or seems to care. He is respected for not expecting much of anything from students. And he is hilarious because it is shocking that his man still is allowed to teach.

Class consists of a couple in-person meetings and then purely online. Weekly 200-500ish word essays and 4 papers, which are either PowerPoints or normal papers. Four papers must be turned in, but two are chosen by student to correct and later turn in as final portfolio grade.

One of my favorite professors freshman year! He is always around for help if needed and very easy going. His class is taught mostly online and only required us to come to 3 class periods in the classroom. If you do the weekly comments on time and put some actual thought into your essays you will get an A. If you don't take him you are missing out.

You have a discussion question once a week and 4 major papers if you do them and put a decent amount of effort into them, you will get an A! He's a super nice guy super welcoming during his office hours. The final is just editing two of your papers, a very non stressful english class! I recommend

Comment:
Every week, you turn in an assignment worth 10 points - generally one page responses to something he has you read or view. His directions are pretty clear on what he wants. You write five papers/projects and turn them in. He gives (fairly vague) feedback, then you revise two to be graded for 150 each. Follow the directions and you'll be fine.

Comment:
It is super easy to get by in Whipple's class. Just do the weekly comments and put a little effort into the papers. Half of your grade is just completing assignments on time. Very easy grader. ENG 150 was online for me but he always encouraged his students to come visit him for feedback on their work. If you have to take English, take Whipple.

Comment:
Whipple is a great teacher and this class is perfect for the busy student without a ton of time to devote to a college english class. Only two in class meetings and the remainder of the course is taught online. "Easy A" type class and the readings he assigns each week are really cool. Assignments/papers are not hard either. This class is a gem.

Bob is a great teacher. You can get an A without doing much work, but the readings that he assigns are actually really interesting. Just recommended this class to my roommate, would definitely take him again.

A great professor. Class was easy, and assignments were expected to be finished in a reasonable amount of time. Dr. Whipple really cares about what his students think, and hearing their opinions. The weekly comments were easy and often interesting, easy points also, and the five papers were not difficult, you only have to turn in 3 for the final.

Very nice guy. Mostly on-line course, but he was available quite a bit. Pretty easy class with weekly responses to questions and 5 papers to write. I would take again if I could.

Dr. Whipple is the friendliest guy, you'll meet. He has a passion for what he teaches. His class is mostly online, you meet a few times in class. There is 5 papers that are drafts which he grades and then you sumbit 3 as your final portfolio. There is also a 250 word comment a week(online) on articles that he gives. Take this class if possible.

This is online class. You meet a few times throughout the semester. Weekly comments and projects are all due online. There are five drafts of different projects that you have to do, then he talks to you about them and you choose three to correct and resumbit as your final porfolio. He is a decent and friendly person! Take this class if possible!

Comment:
The class was kind of a joke, but you could anticipate that from the ridiculous (and extremely overpriced) text book. Dr. Whipple is nice, but a class that doesn't teach you anything is a waste of time and money, nice or not.
