Review #1 / Course: ENGL 2270 / Instructor: KENNEDY J
His complaining about no one having questions about all his boring slave narratives is really annoying. He is extra condescending about everything and the only good thing about the class is that my TA cared even less than I did and I got an A for it.

Review #2 / Course: ENGL 2270 / Instructor: KENNEDY J
This class would probably be easy for an english major. Personally, I thought the readings were difficult to understand and they were super long. Instructor has high&mighty attitude and expects everyone to be able to write an A+ paper. But he grades hard. Be ready to dedicate time to this class. Boring class, but not impossible to pass.

Review #3 / Course: ENGL 2270 / Instructor: KENNEDY J
Wonderful instructor who is very passionate about the subject he teaches. The course requires a medium to high amount of reading, but the content is pretty interesting. Midterm and final are very easy, and the two papers are simple as well. If you do take his course, MAKE SURE you get into his discussion section, as he actually encourages ideas. The TAs are a nightmare, and they interpret the work for you, instead of allowing you to make your own arguments on writing assignments.
