Comment:
There are only around 3 papers in his class. That's all. Nothing else. This class is a breeze if you know how to write pretty decently. He is a great professor. The only problem is that he takes forever to grade the essays and he doesn't really get back to his emails as quick as you would want him to. His Medicine and Literature class is amazing.

Dr. Silver is an amazing professor. He is extremely intelligent, and he isnt a hard grader. He loves participation in his class, so he tries to get everyone to talk at least once. He is easy going and willing to learn and listen to his students. 10/10 would recommend, he is a great person.

Dr. Silver is a wonderful and thoughtful professor. Participation is key for him and he appreciates hearing different takes on the same material. There was a lot of reading for his class but not too many assignments. He will tell you what he wants for the essays and he is an easy grader granted you follow his instructions and use proper grammar.

Comment:
Dr. Silver is a real gem of a professor. He is high-energy, passionate, and a fair grader. There was a good amount of reading and writing for his class, but it was not too cumbersome. He really appreciates students who participate often in the discussion. He is a bit scattered at times but understandably so with all he has going on. Overall, 10/10.

Comment:
Dr. Silver has a good heart, but he doesn't seem to have a line between his professional and personal life. Everything we did in class was centered around the play he is writing, and he expects you to be dedicated to it as he is. The class is also unorganized, and assignments aren't graded on time. I felt like I put work and he reaped the benefits.

Comment:
Dr. Silver is a great man. However, his classes aren't fantastic. He's not easy to get ahold of and grades based on a few things (pretty much all due at the end of the semester). He's prone to get way behind on the syllabus and make you buy books you won't even use. He wants his classes to be discussion-based but in reality they're lectures.

Dr. Silver is a wonderful person and fantastic professor. His class on musical analysis was nothing like I thought it would be - one of the best classes I have ever taken, and I'm a science major. He is personable, compassionate, intelligent, and I so admire how articulate he is. One of my favorite teachers throughout my lifetime.

Comment:
Not sure why people complain about his ENG225 classes being religious... the class is called "the bible in literature". It's the religion requirement. Dr. Silver is great and he really cares about his students and the community. He can be kinda picky with grading (he wants to see specific things in essays) but it's not unbearably difficult.

Comment:
Dr. Silver keeps you entertained during most classes, which is more than I can say for some professors. He does like to tie things back to religion in his classes and hes very liberal so dont take his classes if you dont share his views. A cool guy and it isnt hard to make a B, you can make an A with some effort. 2-3 papers a class.

Comment:
Dr Silver is a good person, but is probably one of my least favorite professors because we are always behind in class. I also would not recommend this class or him if you're not religiously affiliated because everything is brought back to that.

Great professor but gives A LOT of work. You have reading assignments and informal writings due every class period. Participation is a good chunk of the grade and picks one or a few people always to call on. You learn a lot and gives you ample opportunities to extra credit. He is very knowledgeable about the subject he teaches.

Comment:
Dr. Silver is SUPER passionate about the texts. He'll burst out into spontaneous dramatic readings and use the classroom as a sort of stage, so it gets pretty engaging. Participation in discussion is key, but he does majority of the talking usually. He can get a little off on tangents, but never anything that draws away from the core focus.

There's a lot of informal writing assignments for homework but they're not bad if you stay on top of them. Discussion is very important to your grade. If you disagree with him, you just need to do it respectfully and he will listen to your point of view. He is a great professor!

Dr. Silver is not a good professor. He chooses a teachers pet and then doesn't call on anyone else, even though there is a participation grade for his class. Dr. Silver is highly unorganized and gives assignments late at night, the night before they are due, and gives last minute assignments that are completely jumbled. WOULD NOT TAKE AGAIN

Amazing professor! I learned so much about myself and the world in his FYS classes- and my essay writing skills went up quite a few notches with his tough (but worth it!) grading. I highly recommend any class with him!

Although Dr. Silver is a tough professor and grades hard, his class was very interesting and the grades seem fair. The dailies were a bit tedious but they were really helpful when it came to writing the essay on the particular subject. I would definitely take one of his classes again!

He is an amazing teacher who is passionate about what he teaches. Not only did he win awards for being a good teacher, you actually get to see them in work. He grades his essays some what hard, so careful.

I loved this course. It changed my view on everything. If you have an opportunity to take his course, do it! It is a life-changing class. He's very helpful if you actually go up and talk to him. Dailies can be a pain, but they're helpful on the essays. A superb professor! I would definitely take this course again if I could.

Terrific professor! You can really tell that he loves his subject. If it weren't for this man's class, I wouldn't be an English major. Make sure to take him if at all possible! He may grade difficult, but it's definitely worth it. He will read over your essay's and help as much as possible. Take him!

Dr. Silver is an amazing teacher! Throughout high school, I struggled with writing, but he transformed me into a pretty good writer. He is always there to give critiques, but also finds something good to compliment you about. He is absolutely amazing and I highly recommend him!
