Comment:
The professor is a rough and hard grader. I have a sibling studying doctorate and even she said that this grading is even rare for her level. The professor has no interest in being cooperative with the students to help them earn a fair grade for the amount of effort they put into her class. Would never take her again!

DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS, EVEN IF YOU ARE HALFWAY THROUGH THE YEAR DROP OUT NOW!!! I worked my butt off in this class all year, and now if I pass the exam I pass the class, fail I fail it. It is not worth the hard work. I have lost sleep over this class. Not. Worth. It.

Professor Wilputte is a very friendly person and for that, I would take her classes again. But she marks extremely hard and leaves little room for personal interpretation. Reading the material is necessary in order to participate in class, which she expects out of everyone.

Comment:
Wilputte is by far the most closed-minded prof at STFX. She punishes students for having different ideas than her and will not listen to other interpretations of the text. She is super nice and friendly in class (which makes u want to like her) Also a mandatory class for English majors to fulfil 17/18-Century requirement. Marks unfairly hard.

Comment:
Greatest regret of my first year. Extremely unfair grader, boring classes and very judgmental (made me not want to participate in class). Unless you love english, old literature and a professor who lectures at you instead of engaging you then do not take her english 100 class.

Her tests are mediocre but she is brutal when marking papers. Completely unfair. In other English courses I make 80s on my papers and in her class my papers were in the 50s.

Comment:
Overall decent prof. She really makes you work for a good grade. Some of the concepts I found a little ambivalent. The tests are all essays, on top of the usual essays. The course was very essay-heavy (some are worth 20%). Attendance is not mandatory, but I feel like she judges you for missing or skipping, due to the small class size.

Comment:
I had the worst time in her English 100 course. She is an unreasonable marker, does not give sufficient time on midterms, and does not actually teach how to write an essay properly. Instead we spend all of our classes reading, and analyzing material. Unless you're a descendent of Shakespeare, you will struggle to make it through this class.

Comment:
The material was fine, but Earla is an EXTREMELY hard marker (papers especially). For example, I got a 57 on a paper that I started three days before it was due (understandable). For the second one, I went to the Writing Centre twice and spent three weeks on it and got a 58... Just an unreasonably hard marker watch out!

Very interesting class! I enjoyed her class but she was a very hard marker. Her input on my papers when I went to see her during office hours was was worth it though. I learned a lot. Do the readings and participate in the class! She likes when people participate!

I didn't like her at all. Very strict, readings were almost impossible to keep up with, and writing assignments didn't really make any sense.

Comment:
I had Earla in 1989-1990 in a 100 course where we studied Chaucer and Tess Of the D'Urberviles. I have neve forgotten either work, nor have I forgotten her passion and compassion. She was a fantastic woman and educator. I was immature and didn't have a sniff, but she kept me interested. 22 years ago, she was great and kind. I loved it!

I liked English with Dr. Wilputte. She's actually pretty interesting. Not an easy marker but it definitely helps if you talk in class. Try to answer some of her questions in class and don't just sit there and sleep. I'd recommend her.

Interesting lectures, brutal marker. Her expectation level for marking is insane. Essays and exams are tough, you absolutely cannot regurgitate your notes, you will fail. The worst part for me was that I loved the works we studied but hated the assignments, they were boring and hard to do research for. Only take if you are really dedicated.

Earla Wilputte is by far the best prof I've experienced thus far at St. F.X. Funny, quirky, witty and downright interesting- you couldn't pick a better class. True, she's a difficult marker but if you possess any talent in English- she's sure to bring out your best. Attend regularly, participate and put in effort. She'll change you as a person.

I am an English Major and I failed her 100 level course. Worse prof I've ever had... hands down. When I re-took eng 100 a year later, I had the dean of the department, and he marked hard, but not unreasonable! I got a 80 in his class. Awful, awful teacher.

She makes class entertaining, even though the subject was dead boring. I actually wanted to go to class! She's nice, helpful, and a fair marker. She can tell when you're just regurgitating class notes on essays, but tests weren't marked as hard.

Everyone complains that she is a hard marker, but I'm not even an English majour and I had no real problems so far. The classes are also probably the best classes I've attended. Actually worth getting up for at 8am!

Comment:
She is a good prof, but a tough marker. She likes people to participate in discussion in class and is not happy when people have not read the material before class. She can be a bit quirky, but interesting.
