She is a gem in the English department and you will learn a lot from her. Prof. Hendin is one of the kindest people I have ever met and she truly cares about her students and about the work that she teaches.

Jo Hendin makes some interesting points and presents some interesting ideas. She seems to care more about her own ideas rather than discussing student ideas. Hit or miss. Can be an interesting class.

Comment:
Professor Hendin is the sweetest and smartest lady I've met. She is so passionate and her classes are so interesting to listen to. There is no in-class discussion but if you want to talk she appreciates it. You do not need to do the readings but they are great. Super easy to get an A.

Comment:
I found this class and its subject (Italian immigrants) to be quite enjoyable. Easy-going English requirement for premed. The readings are interesting and not too difficult. To avoid awkward silences in class, I would recommend at least going some basic ideas of the assignments to prepare. Easy grader; assignments are clear. Highly recommended!

Comment:
Just awful. Literally like a robot with no interaction with the students at all. She knew none of our names, didn't take any attendance, and our entire grade was based on one final paper. Easy to skip class because she took no notice. Depressing for people who love to discuss books.

Reading list was great. Lectures mostly covered the obvious points, but I still found them interesting, as well as recitation discussions. 3 papers over the semester and one final research paper.

Comment:
It wasn't uncommon for kids to say her lectures were "boring" or that she didn't know what she was talking about (like below). But what I found myself was that these were the vapid idiots with low attention spans. Jo is lovely, brilliant, and the most generous professor. All you have to do is listen; everything she says is insightful and original.

Comment:
She lectures the entire class without actually saying anything, using large words to hide the fact that there is no structure or focus (or relevance) to what she's saying. Completely useless class, although the reading list is great.

Comment:
English is my major, and I hoped to get to know more about American Fiction by taking her class. Even though we read wonderful books, her class was horribly boring and useless. There was no discussion and she just read from old lectures the whole time, and most of the information was recycled from the book's introductions.

Incredibly sweet and nice. Doesn't learn your name but will always talk to you and show interest in whatever you say. Incredibly well spoken and well read. Very enjoyable class.

Not only are her lectures informative, they're anecdotally amusing! Answered all the questions I had and gave good reference suggestions. She's approachable and reasonable. I also valued her constructive criticism. She writes really good comments on essays.

Comment:
The TA graded more toughly than the professor. When the TAs were still teaching, she didn't care if students participated. She compensated for the strike by allowing for discussions and canceling the final. She gives positive comments. Overall a very nice professor; I would take a class with her again.

Comment:
For a seminar, she dominated the discussion and actually did not force much from the students; although she knew the subject very well, she couldn't tell that who was who in class or if any of us read any of the material; nice and easy, but sometimes boring
