Comment:
I found her class to be enlightening. If you have an open mind and are interested in learning beyond the traditional male centric view point than this is a wonderful class to take. I stayed open and learned so much from her. I enjoyed a different learned perspective. She enjoys alternative perspectives, but you have to have the goods to back it up.

Comment:
This is the worst English class I have ever taken. With English it is assumed that there will be some talk of religion. Prof Cat will not shut up about her pagan religion, how everyone must believe in a god, and makes it very uncomfortable if you disagree with her. She is feminist in a way that is performative and uncomfortable even for feminists.

She is definitely clear in her Feminism and will let you know it. Take this class with an open mind but remember it's only a few months. I worked hard on her assignments and met after class for feedback. She will work with you, don't let some of her ideas and comments scare you off. Work har, participate and read what she tells you to and you pass.

Shes an okay professor. What I truly disliked about the class was her political and feminist rants. Tells you her class is a save place, but when you refer to god as a male she corrects you to goddess. Youre required to buy her lecture book, her class is okay its just a little annoying.

Comment:
Decently good at teaching, but it will always be clear that a political agenda is pushed. The professor advocates for critical thinking on all matters, but expects students to blindly accept her beliefs as their own. Additionally, the professor has students read her own discertation as the primary book of the semester. Not professional.

I'm still currently in Dr. Edelmann's class, however from the few months I've attended her classes it is clear that she cares for her student's education, and will go to great lengths to ensure their success. You will be expected to put work into this class, but she does not assign excessive homework and is clear about what her expectations are.

She is GREAT. I absolutely loved her lectures and I was actually a little disappointed when semester ended. Very interesting lectures, amazing choice of books and phenomenal energy. HW felt like cheating, cuz I actually ENJOYED doing it. She cares about her students deeply and believes at what she's teaching. Great professor, great person! <3

From the first day to the last, Dr. Cats humor, quick wit, intelligence, and deep caring made everyday in class thought provoking. In this class you get what you put in, just like life. My life was seriously changed from Dr. Cats underlying message. This WOMAN is pure genius and Im thankful to have had the chance to learn from her. -Sharks

I took English 1 with Dr. Cat during winter semester and returned to her for English 2 during spring. She has been a pivotal influence in my life and I am tremendously thankful to her for her thoughts and time. Authentic participation is rewarded and students who listen and follow instructions benefit most. Combative students please don't enroll.

Comment:
She is a very kind professor. Lenient grader and isn't strict about due dates. She only assigned 2 essays and presentations were optional. What I didn't like about this class is that she goes on so many long tangents. Also, tests are kind of hard and they count for most of your grade - which you can't check because she doesn't use canvas.

Comment:
Dr. Cat is an interesting person and there is a lot of valuable information in her course... but she is not a good teacher. I am very liberal but I could not stand this woman. She pushes her opinions on her students very harshly. She chooses favorites from day one. This class is Dr. Cat's manifesto. It is WOM 10, not ENG 01. However, I did get an A

Eng24.. grammar review spring 2019 Professor Dr Cat Edelmann is thorough and precise in her lectures. The best English teacher at SMC, by far. I suggest to take her before taking English 1, so student will be able to write proper usage of grammar and punctuation in writing essays. It will be a tremendous help to ease in writing essays.

English 24 is a grammar review class. By far, the best English teacher I have taken, since I started at SMC in Spring 2018. Dr. Cat is very thorough and precise with her lectures of proper grammar usage and punctuations, also reading and writing. Take her, the negative comments about her is not true if you want to learn good English writing.

Comment:
If you want to be indoctrinated by cultural Marxism and the failures of feminism, then this teacher is for you. Despite being an English course, she goes off on tangents about her idiotic political philosophies. She forces you to buy her UNPUBLISHED book for her class. Her literature is abysmal. She over focuses on figurative language. Degenerate.

She's a very sweet woman but at the same time... the entire class is about her political views. This class is supposed to be about ethnic literature.

Comment:
Dr. Cat is one of the best English professors at SMC. I truly enjoyed her class discussions which were brilliant and inspiring. Her book, a study on the oppression of women opened my eyes to a truth that affects all of us in society. Dr. Cat is not biased against male students, that is nonsense and not like her. She greatly values her students!

She is the most inspirational professor I've ever had! She made the entire semester about learning life skills while doing actual work. She even wrote her own book, and I'm sure I'm not the only one when I say that the book changed my life. The class was a lot of work, but if you show up and make an effort you'll be fine.

If you want an A I DO NOT recommend her. I have not received a lower grade than an A in English in my life. She does not use Canvas, so you have no idea about your actual grade percentage until the very end. Two tests: 25 points you can only loose 2 points to get an A. Two essays: focusing on grammar, not much the content. Ruined my GPA.
