I attended this class Fall 2014. Margie, or Abby as she prefers to be called, is pretty awesome. She is always on time and very organized. The packet that comes with our syllabus was insanely helpful. She is very straight-forward but not curt, so you feel encouraged to share your thoughts or ideas but the class also stays on track. I enjoyed the essays she chose for us to read and she facilitated discussions well.
She works VERY hard on grading papers and got them back to us astonishingly quickly. She also gives wonderfully helpful and clear feedback and has no problem helping people develop their ideas. Her grading is super fair and reflects the work you put into your assignments. University Writing is a notoriously tough unavoidable class, and I'm glad I took it with her.
