Tufts University: Mark Karlins - English - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Mark Karlins was always genuinely interested in hearing what we had to say. He was very nice and approachable. He was completely open to new ideas and alternative views and making sure that the class had open and engaging discussions. The reading material was extremely interesting and ranged through various types of philosophy and writing styles and delved into contemporary writers as well. The discussions were worthwhile, even though they were sometimes a bit random, but no worries, because it made the class more interesting!! He was ALWAYS willing to give you time in his office to talk or look over your papers and discuss about your progress and successes. I was never a huge writer but this class made me love college writing, because I could take my own unique analytical view and write with my own style, and as long as I worked hard to support my writing from the text, I did well. I loved having Professor Karlins!!! I would definitely recommend his class!!

All work and discussions were based on his readings. Grade consisted of: class discussions, 4 (2-4 Page) analytical papers, a writing portfolio (about 20 assignments from throughout the semester of various lengths, due together in a neat portfolio towards the end of the semester) and a research paper (5-7 pages about a contemporary topic, handed in on last day).
All work was straight forward and manageable!
