Comment:
There were many papers but all were turned in for "completion" instead of letter grades, a handful of tests although the last few were all take-home. Cynthia is funny and has interesting anecdotes but has some pretty bad politics. Would straight-up teach incorrect information sometimes, but would usually back down if you pointed it out to her.

Comment:
This teacher is very confusing and does not explain herself very well. The class is essentially a joke at this point.

Cynthia is so enthusiastic. She really wants to hear what students think about the books read in class, and is very helpful and clear with any questions.

Comment:
Theatre History is really really boring, but she is very knowledgeable and makes an effort to make class fun, and on some days it is. Just turn in all the assignments, and ask for free-bees on the quizzes!

Comment:
she has passion for literature, but class was kind of a waste of time. her assignments were intense because they were numerous, but only some (essays, half the readings) felt worthwhile. she'll warm up after a couple months, but a lot of people got really frustrated with her. she's weird and funny, but I wouldn't take another class with her.

Comment:
hint: for readings she lists as "recommended," you don't need them. Don't waste the thirty bucks. Be prepared for a well-meaning scatterbrain, beacuse that's what our beloved Cynthia is. Many interesting mornings spent in her class.

Cynthia is coolly elegant, but when the TV broke during the climax of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, she took us to her house to finish it and ordered us Chinese food. Cool.

Comment:
It is rumored that Cynthia loves pot, which is not damning. What is more damning is her very frequent class cancellations and unorganized habits. Picks marvelous reading material, and I loved reading it with her, but class was cancelled far too often.

Comment:
Strange woman, but I really liked her. She's enthusiastic about the material that she teaches. Sort of cold towards students, but I almost like that better than the teachers who are too friendly. I really respect this teacher.
