*A 5 star workload is an easy workload; a 3 star is average; whereas a 1 star workload is extremely hard.
Comments:Latin 2 - I have a different experience, since I was taught one on one by both Jones and Alden Smith. She was extremely interested in getting to know me, patient and understanding. I credit her and Smith for filling in the gaps in my knowledge. I still say hi to her. She seems to always be working privately with a student or teaching. Highly recommended. - Grade In Class:A
Comments:CLA 1304 - Dr. Jones was a fun professor to have coming into Baylor as a freshmen stem major. This class provided an opportunity to step back from the equations and consider and write about moral implications and the philosophy of Greek (seemingly similar) heroines. We would read from a few books sharpening our writing skills, writing a short 1-2 page assignment every week or so. There was a bigger essay assignment, quizzes on vocab, and a final exam on vocab with a short essay. In-class participation over the material read the night before was expected. Overall, it was a fun way to learn and fulfill the research writing requirement. - Grade In Class:A
Comments:1304 - I honestly really liked professor jones, her classes were mostly made up of really simple lectures on rhetoric or discussion on the Heroides. Definitely buy the book that she assigns chapters out of, you don't need to buy the other two. I read the first couple reading assignments but after that you can kinda bs the classes discussions by just skimming the chapters or just going off what she says in class. the most work youll have is a couple short essays on articles she assigns which you can also kinda get by if you don't read them. there aren't any inclass essays except for the final. the biggest paper's youll have to write are 2 eight page papers but they are pretty well spread out. she's a really forgiving grader and pretty good about responding to emails or if you need to meet with her. i honestly didn't pay attention a bunch in class towards the end of the semester and was totally fine. Do understand the rhetorical terms she teachers cause theres like 3 quizzes but they aren't super harsh on your grade if you don't do good on them. overall i thought it was a really easy class and I hate english. its a good way to knock out the research writing requirement - Grade In Class:B+
Comments:1304 - I took Dr. Jones to fulfill the research writing requirement. She assigned journal, article and/or "textbook" readings for each class, and then during class she would lecture and ask for our input into the discussion. She's very nice and willing to chat, and was also very responsive to her emails. She is a very slow grader (and did not input any of my essay grades until the day before grades were due), so I did not know if what I was doing with my essays was correct. However, seems like she's a pretty forgiving grader, and has a rubric posted for each assignment. I could've gotten an A if I did not turn in a few of my assignments late (she takes a 5% penalty per day that's late). - Grade In Class:B+
Comments:CLA 3381 - This class was easy. If you have to take medical terminology, she is a fine professor. We had assignments due every Tuesday and Friday, a quiz every week, and four tests. There was no cumulative final, just the fourth test. Dr. Jones like NEVER put in grades though. Like in DECEMBER, grades from September weren't put in. They were inputed the last day of the semester. This class isn't bad, though, so take it if you have to; you'll be fine. - Grade In Class:A
