Some were not happy with the grading outline and felt too much emphasis was placed on a single, long essay in the midterm. Others comment that Leonard's popularity becomes a problem as his office hours are insufficient and he is inconsistent with e-mail, but most consider these to be problems they are more than willing to live with in exchange for his instruction.

Professor Leonard received considerable praise from students in this course, with frequent suggestions that he teaches 'life lessons' as much as 20th century literature.

A few suggested that limited or irregular office hours were a problem at times, owing to the popularity of the professor and the material. Regardless of minor concerns, many cite this as their favorite class to date.

One student in this course described Professor Leonard as an instructor who 'teaches beyond the text' and that seems a fair description.

Regardless of this particular question students tended to react very well to Professor Leonard as a personality and found his lecture style engaging, even if they felt lost at times in his classes.

Several mentioned with appreciation his willingness to engage with alternative views from the class. A few students expressed a desire to see a greater range of poetry included in the future, and felt the selection was limited.

Some felt that his prepared notes were an advantage and a sign of organization while others felt the lectures felt too scripted at times. A number of students referenced the size of the class as a problem and suggested either smaller classes or else tutorial sections, but also allowed that Professor Boughn made the best of it and even tried to engage in class dialogue. Many noted that a lot of class time was devoted to the historical context literature without any indication if this would be tested (apparently not) but many also suggested this was among the most interesting content. A couple students noted this course is especially interesting to anyone intending to teach elementary school or work with children.

Students in this course were generally positive about the instruction and the material covered. A number of students observed that the pace of the course was sometimes a bit fast for them. Some students felt that the late scheduling of the course and the length of the lectures (7-10pm) were a detriment. Others noted that there was a great deal of reading covered, and went on to emphasize that this is 'not a bird course.'

Students did find the course very satisfying and found the professor to be very interesting and kept the class involved with discussion and questions. The students also really enjoyed the examples used and found that they illustrated the points very well. Students found that more office hours would have been helpful due to the large class size.

Students found the course material to be interesting and engaging, but many had problems with how the course was run. Students felt that the professor lacked control over the time that was being spent on the administrative aspect of the course, and not spending enough time on the lecture. At the same time, she was often late for class, and she cancelled lectures far too often. Students felt that the course needed to be organized better, and that the class should have spent more time on the material being studied.

Most students thoroughly enjoyed this course and felt Professor Boughn kept it interesting for them, though some suggest the volume of reading what too high and others felt that course expectations were not clear. To quote one student: "Boughn's passion for the subject matter rekindled my love for science fiction and cyberpunk that had been previously beaten down by English teachers' general disregard for it as not worthy of study." While this might not be fair to other professors of English it does capture Professor Boughn's ability to generate interest and inspiration in this area of study.

Although students were positive about Professor Bennett personally they felt the class suffered from a lack of organization and focus. They suggested more structure and a tighter adherence to the planned readings. A number of students expressed either surprise or unhappiness regarding the degree of focus on poetry in the class, and felt that 'authors' implied novelists, which proved not to be the case.

In general, students enjoyed this course and the assigned novels. They found Dr. Goldman to be an excellent, enthusiastic and intelligent professor. However many thought that the professor assigned many psychology readings, and introduced psychological theories that were very hard for them to understand, since they were not psychology students. Also, several students found it unfair how midterm marks were posted after the drop date, and would have preferred if they got feedback in their course grade before that time.

Students found Professor Bennett to be very pleasant and approachable, personally, but had concerns relating to her degree of organization in the class. Students reported that she was either quite accessible or much less so, probably depending on the ways they were trying to interact with her. Most report her use of the internet as a means of communication was pretty good. Quite a few suggested this class was too large to be a C-level English class and some suggested the content was too broad for a half-credit. A surprising number of students commented that the concept of the 'hero' didn't come clear for them until quite a while into the course, which is probably a problem as it's so central to the material.

Many students have a great affection for Professor Leonard and several reference the fact that this was their third or even fourth course with him. Of course those students who are seeking him out were mainly satisfied with their experiences in this course. Most comments reflected on the unusual nature of this course, which was taught by two professors and cross-listed under different codes (the other was VPHC48, with Professor Carney) and many students felt this was not effective. A few students reference a sense there was a certain 'power struggle' at times and felt they would be better off with just one instructor. Several students also note that in-class presentations were lacking in value for the class as a whole and took up too much time. Still, most found the material interesting, as well as simply enjoying Professor Leonard as usual.

Students actually had many concerns about this course and it is due only to Professor Leonard's remarkable popularity (often called 'outstanding' by students) that there weren't more complaints or problems. A number of students were clearly confused about course expectations in terms of the nascent cinema program vs. more mainstream English. Some also cited a lack of organization as a problem. This course focused on the Vietnam War in film and as the course title and description are more general quite a few students did not know this going into the course and so some were confused or felt out of place. Others simply felt the material was too brutal. Nevertheless, between those students who would willingly listen to Professor Leonard teach anything at all, those interested in cinema (minor program pending), and those who 'got' the course most were happy regardless and found it a valuable experience.

Students were pleased with Professor Dolan's instruction and a number made comments reflecting a desire to get even more out of a considerable body of course material, including more hours a week or even a full-year course on the same subject. Some students were very concerned about having the vast majority of the course mark rest on a single long paper (there was no final exam) while most seemed to find the method of evaluation motivating and suited to a D-level course.
