Gotman is a young teacher who really helped to improve my writing. Class was very laid back and she helped to create a very comfortable atmosphere for discussion. She can be a little abstract in the way she teaches and when she tries to explain the writing assignments I often still didn't have any idea what we were supposed to do. But luckily she's really clear in her comments on the rough drafts and during meetings to discuss the paper. She's a fair grader and gives you room to write without too many restrictions. It was one of my favorite classes because we had a great group of people who really meshed and produced great discussion. We also got to read very interesting essays. All around I think she's a great teacher. Writing was enjoyable in her class.
