Comment:
Worst prof I've ever had. I've never had any problems when it came to English, but I had bad marks for most of her assignments. Also a very big workload. I found her very rude and learned absolutely nothing in her class. I would not recommend her, at all.

Comment:
WORST PROF EVER. This was an ONLINE course with the worst grading scheme imaginable. Two online, group essays. So back and forth and frustrating to try and compose an essay with 5 group members. She is blunt. She is rude and her ideas are always right. She treats her students like they're idiots. Also, won't schedule appointments if you need help.

Comment:
An extremely high workload & very critical evaluations of papers. Be prepared for blunt critiques and inconsistent markings.I had my essay paper critiqued from an Honors English major before submission and only received a 50 A very difficult prof to understand writing expectations from one paper to the next. She should be teaching at this level.

I hated every minute of the course and I think I learned nothing. I'm not sure what I was supposed to learn as there were no lectures.

She does not offer her students anything besides an evaluation. If you happen to struggle in the class she will make an effort to make it even more difficult so that you just drop her class.

Comment:
Definitely the worst professor I have ever had. The work load of this course was VERY unreasonable and time consuming. She quickly picks favourites and her "constructive" criticism is more personal then school related. She lacks interpersonal skills and is one of the rudest people I have EVER interacted with in my life. AVOID HER AT ALL COSTS.

Comment:
First of all I would like to say that I passed this course. Dr. Schrank is very rude and the work load for this type of course was outrages. There could be anywhere from 14 to 18 questions per week, with multiple questions withing these questions. When I did asked her for help, her response was rude and disheartening.

She was helpful and returned papers/marked discussions within 72 hours. She marks fairly and while her feedback leaves something to be desired, she will help if you care enough about your mark to inquire as to how you can improve.

Comment:
Dr. Schrank is the worst professor I have had during my five years at Memorial. She knows her material quite well and has a wealth of knowledge regarding American Literature, but she is an awful human being. She lacks the interpersonal skills to teach and educate efficiently. I advise my peers to avoid her at all costs.

A distance course with all essays being group work? Really? Don't do this course with Schrank. Group work online is less than enjoyable or practical. Take this course from a professor who isn't pretentious and full of themselves and do it on campus. Trust me. I didn't do bad in the course but hated every second of it.

Comment:
My 2nd course with Dr. Schrank, she's wonderful! Heavy work load and intense discussion/group work, which is to be expected for a 4th yr course! She cares about the students and is passionate about the material, so her thoughts are always interesting and thought provoking! As long as you participate and try your best, you should get an A.

Comment:
I have taken English 1080 through the distance course. She grades unfairly for an introduction course, as well her workload is extremely heavy. Each short story has about 14 questions all made up of 5-8 sub-questions, it is very time consuming and takes time away from other courses. I would never take another course with her

Comment:
Dr. Schrank is an excellent teacher. She does not deserve the negative comments that are seen here. I think that these people must have misunderstood her. She cares very much about literature. I feel that she is very helpful with her explanations, as well as her critiques. Her personal views are also interesting and insightful.

Comment:
I did this course by distance and I have to say, she gives feedback quickly and 95% of the time it's very helpful. However, if you are the type of person who takes things personally, you should avoid her. Sometimes her comments are more like personal digs than "constructive" criticism. You definitely need thick skin to handle her feedback.

Comment:
Focuses too much on group work & claims that she never has a problem with it. Thinks very highly of herself and does not like to be contradicted. Rude in her responses. Does not allow for adequate response times in dealing with online issues. Will never take another class with this woman again and will warn others away from her teaching 'style'.

A lot of work but the prof gives excellent feedback. Good course but you must be willing to put the work in. Very accessible prof with great web material. Fairly heavy workload but very interesting.

Comment:
I took a distance course with her and she is rude and arrogant and when she responds to questions she is saucy. What kind of teacher talks back to her students? She is in charge of teaching us the material and should do only that.
