Comment:
Craig is great! He's very fun as a professor with lots of tangents and stories that are more interesting than distracting. He's not a hard grader, but there are right and wrong answers for the work. He drops two assignment and two quiz grades and he curved the midterm. Even though the material is hard sometimes, Craig really wants you to pass.

Prof Sirles is the best! Take every class of his that you can. He is funny, an easy grader, and makes class fun! He always has funny stories. He drops the lowest 4 quizzes, the midterm is curved too. The work is fairly easy.

Prof Sirles is an excellent teacher! He's really funny! His class is easy. You do have quizzes on the readings but he drops the lowest 4 quizzes.

In addition to being a good instructor, Dr. Sirles has a droll sense of humor that is amusing to say the least. Although his class seemed a little work heavy at first, Dr. Sirles was helpful and willing to go over old material. I highly recommend his class.

Professor is rude to students. He seems to enjoy calling students out and embarrassing them. He is only a lecture teacher, though he puts handouts up. Overall, his lecture is mainly confusing and I would not recommend this class.

Nice guy and has a good sense of humor. Do the readings and you'll pass the quizzes every time. Assignments aren't too difficult and he's laid back about deadlines. Definitely recommend and would take again, he is awesome!

One of my favorite teachers in MAWP. He is hilarious and a joy to listen to because of all his random knowledge. Though Language and Style is challenging, he gives you chances to drop your lowest grades.

I received my MA over ten years ago now. I can say with conviction that I learned more in Dr. Sirles class than any other. He's no bullsh*t--and if you can't handle straighforward, contrstructive criticism, do not take this class. It was more real-world than any other class I took. Plus, I think he's a hottie. :)

He is very sarcastic but you end up liking him. He is very smart and I learned a lot from him. The textbook is very helpful even after you've taken the course. I'd recommend him anytime.

Comment:
Sirles is hilarious. I enjoyed every minute of class, except for when he'd read page after page of text out loud. If you're thin-skinned, you'll probably get offended by him, but if you like a dry, sarcastic wit, you'll have a blast at everyone elses' expense.

Sirles is the most intelligent person I've ever met. I purposely took two hard classes as electives just so that I could take him again. I envision him sipping martinis at a cocktail party, arguing over Norman Mailer. I fell in love with this man's brain!

wonderful, always late to class and wastes tons of time. Just the kind of class you'd want to take if you want to be in a HORRIBLE mood for the rest of the day!! Only take him if you want to fully convince yourself all classes outside of your major are a waste of time and money.

The wittiest, most entertaining, intelligent professor I've ever had. He's the kind of guy you'd find in a pub in London ranting about syntax and politics. He will teach you much.

Sirles rocks! He has the perfect balance of intelligence, dry wit, and presentational style. He taught me how to "tree," but more importantly, how to teach grammar. His mother says he is a doctor, "but the not the kind that helps people." I beg to differ, Mrs. Sirles, I beg to differ.

One of the best professors I have ever had. He has a sense of humor. He lectures, but is will to stop for conversation and to discuss material in greater detail. I learned the most for my master's degree from his classes. It's stuff you can really put to good use.

Learned a lot in his class. The best thing about him is that he actually lectures! No breaking into groups and discussing the material. He comes in prepared with lecture notes and explains the material. I wish more teachers would go back to this style. He really knows his material and makes it intresting.

He was an awesome teacher. Very funny, sometimes crude humor (he flicked me off, all in good fun though) Curves alot, but knows his stuff. Kept me awake alot better than most other english profs.

Lectures are very interesting. The humor is appreciated. Prof. Sirles is not an easy grader, but he does curve a lot. I would recommend taking his classes. You could do a whole lot worse.
