Comment: Professor Napolin was great. She initially gave many readings and writing assignments, which is overwhelming at first, but that didn't last for too long. She really helped improved my writing skills as well as my analytical thinking skills. She is fair on grading, as long as you put in the effort. I definitely recommend her!!

Comment: A really fun and interesting professor! Her class was always interesting, though the reading was sometimes dry, or long, the discussions we did in class were definitely worth participating in. In terms of organization, she's a bit on the messier side, but that doesn't interfere with her enthusiasm for the class or your own work schedule (if you plan ahead for this). Check your e-mail often for updates. When grading papers...simply put, she isn't an easy grader. BUT she knows what she's looking for, and she'll help you get where your writing should be to succeed, in class and out. I took this class knowing it was one of the more difficult R1A courses, but I feel like I got the most out of it as well. If you're thinking of taking Rhetoric R1A, take it with Napolin! :)

Comment: Very good teacher. While her time management (showing up on time, passing things back, keeping on schedule) isn't nearly the best, or even good for that matter, everything gets done. Class is ALWAYS engaging and seems to be done on the fly which allows the discussion to flow in interesting ways. Her grading is hard but fair. I learned a LOT from her about my writing, if you have a choice, she is definitely one of the better ones. When asked for, help is also given but in a way that allows you to learn instead of taking a handout. Thanks for everything!

Comment: She is funny and nice, but very very strict on deadlines, which is a good thing because we learn to turn in things in time. Overall, a nice professor. She loves music, also, and she even sings in a group.

Comment: She is really nice, and is definitely passionate about what she teaches. Although her assignments can be difficult, it is not a lot in terms of workload. Usually it was just a bit of reading before each class. She grades a little hard, but she gives a lot of good feedback, so you know what to improve upon. If you have some trouble, you can always go to office hours, where she is really nice and helpful as well. Overall, taking R1A with her was both interesting and rewarding. Even if you do not consider yourself good at writing, it is a worthwhile experience.

Comment: She was really interested in what she was teaching us and was more concerned that we were learning and understanding than simply getting through the material. Her grading was pretty tough and I didn't understand what she expected of us on the assignments. She also couldn't tell me what my grade was at any point in time during the semester so I had a very slight idea of what I was getting but not entirely sure. If you decide to take her class, take advantage of her office hours. They were very helpful.

Comment: I actually took this class with Annie Hill, and I believe she filled in for Napolin. Anyways, the class is pretty chill. Two papers, a few quizzes, and a bit of reading, but not at all overwhelming. If you write quality papers, you should get the grade you deserve. Overall, a fair and helpful course, especially if you want to improve your writing.
