Students found professor Ellis to be considerate to students' efforts to grasp concepts. She did move quickly in lecture, so effective sketching skills will help students keep up with the pace of the course. Some fill-in-the-blanks questions on tests were found to be misleading, but the instructor's organization and enthusiasm made the course enjoyable for all.
