The best L&R teacher ever! Believe it or not, this was my favorite class this semester. Hawn is an interesting lecturer and even the grammar lessons were quite fun. I only remember being bored twice in his class, and it was only for a short time. He is a very hard, but fair grader. Your writing will improve a lot after taking this course. I freaked out when I got a d+ on my first paper, but by the end I was pulling a's. A cool thing about Hawn is that he replaces your original grade with your revision grade. So I rewrote my first paper and the d+ was off my record. If you work really hard and write good papers, you'll get an A- in the class. Otherwise, you'll fall in the B range. Hawn is a genuinely nice person and is very helpful in his criticism. I went to his office hours and it was amazing how much he was able to help me with my papers. You should definitely try to take his class. His class is usually at 9am.
