I had heard all of the horror stories about University Writing, but Michele was the ideal teacher for this course. She did a phenomenal job, even though she seemed very demanding at times. Always willing to help out via email or office hours, she seemed incredibly dedicated. Her comments are always good, even if her suggestions are somewhat unreasonable, especially on final papers. But you'll actually be able to enjoy writing with Michele. The strike notwithstanding, UW was a worthwile class. Even though we didn't get to really do our Collaborative Critical Projects, and Michele didn't want to meet outside of Columbia like some other teachers did, it was probably more of an ideology issue than anything else. Highly recommended.
