Soloski, Alexis Silver_nugget
[FYSB BC1156/69] First Year Seminar: Legacy of the Mediterranean I

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Fantastic fantastic teacher. At the beginning, she can seem a little intimidating; after all, she really does know her stuff. But after writing my first paper and sitting down with and learning what you can do to improve, you realize she totally is not as scary as she seems and totally has constructive criticism. Very fair grader who makes it very clear how an essay should be structured. A great fun personality who really brings interesting points to the class discussion.

Since you don't get to choose your First Year English professor, consider yourself lucky if you get Professor Soloski

Workload:

2 essays plus one final research paper
On all three there is a first and second draft and she tends to weight the second draft more for the paper's final grade
Bi weekly reading responses that are simple and straightforward- plus, you're allowed to skip two a semester
