Comment:
Loved her teaching! One of my favourites. The way she wove in literary theory throughout the entire course was brilliant. Her choice of texts were compelling (hard, but compelling) since they built on each other and exemplified the changes to literary theory. Her sense of humour is dry, and as a mature student (over 30), I found this refreshing.

Enjoyed her online course! Her lecture notes were clear and interesting. She answered questions quickly and she gave constructive criticism.

I am taking EN 199 online with her right now. Great prof! Very helpful when she is approached with a question. Follows up with her students. The text is very useful in regards to the work (Which I cannot say about many other classes)

I enjoyed her teaching methods and she made jokes in class to keep it interesting. The books we read were great.

Great prof, great class. Contrary to the previous review, the final did make sense. Required you to go beyond the lectures, as many finals do. As for her marking, I came out happy, don't know what the previous reviewer's problem is. I hope to have Lister again.

She is alright, but definitely not my fav prof in the department. Her final came out of nowhere- she asked things that didn't make much sense and were never discussed in class. Not the best marker either...

Dry sense of humor....half the time nobody gets it, and then she laughs, then we all proceed to laugh politely. Does a good job with text analysis though.

She's super nice, funny, interesting lectures. Hard final exam! I'm sure than my B+ went down to a C after that one...

Love her! She's hilarious, and has a certain round-about honesty about her. She definitely knows her stuff when it comes to the material.

I agree with the poor ratings. She's not a good prof. I'm in my last year of Honours English and she doesn't compare favourably with any of my other English profs. She needs to care more about students and be more analytical with the texts.

She was amazing. I didn't take any other courses with her, but she analyzed the texts for this course SO thoroughly! I have never learned more in a course than I have with her. AMAZING! I'm shocked by other comments that suggest otherwise.

Great Professor! She loves students and interacts with them well. She is down to earth and has a realistic idea of what students think. Make sure you are in class, she will remember this. She is very helpful, you will get a good mark if you work.

I didn't like this professor. Out of all my english profs, she was the worst. Ya, she's nice enough in front of the class and she does pick great books to use but she does nothing to enhance the material. She seems rather disinterested in the students.

I loved this professor. She made me think about things differently, she had interesting viewpoints, she was very understanding about personal circumstances, I learned so much from this class. I highly recommend her.

Does not analyse deeply at all. Very superficial lectures. I didn't learn very much in this course. She also seems to be biased in grading (as in: she keeps you at the same grade no matter what you do for her).

She puts too much material on the course that doesn't get covered and merely provides plot synopsis for all that she teaches. I don't think she analyses things at a university level.
