Tufts University: Ronna Johnson - English - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Ronna Johnson | ENG059 - Continuity of American Literature| English2005-01-19

Review:
I have mixed feelings about this course. I got through this class without reading a lot of the texts, since the workload was unbearably heavy. Some readings were dull but many were integral to the course's requirements.

She does try to force her views upon students. This past semester was the presidential election and she kept bitching about Bush and how Bush should go to hell. (Republicans beware!)

I was frustrated with her many times, but then she was really nice to me one-on-one. I don't know. I did fine on the final and midterm, and not so great on the paper--she graded really harshly on it. (butchered my paper)

"You need to learn how to write a critical literary analysis." (Yeah but this was a SURVEY course...I didn't think it had to be that intense!)

I would take another class with her.

She's a feminist. A liberal. SO beware, if you're a conservative.

She hardly ever encouraged participation. But was concerned about our understanding. She tended to be condescending. Believed us "undergrads" were inexperienced, etc. Eh.

Workload:
A lot of reading. I never was able to catch up. 1 paper due. 1 final. 1 midterm.
