As I’ve mentioned before, I graduated with a degree in English Education. I’m happy to have received the degree. It was a challenge to find the right professors, that’s for sure. Back then, the Internet was on campus, but no one really used it. Students would communicate with each other, finding out who the best teachers were for each particular subject. We would then try to get into classes with only those instructors. That’s the way we did things back then. However, now there’s a website that can really help you if you’re a student now (or will be soon). Rate my Professors allows you to rate each of your instructors, and lets them leave feedback, as well.
RateMyProfessors.com is the Internet’s largest listing of collegiate professor ratings, with more than 6.8 million student-generated ratings of over 1 million professors. Each year, millions of college students use the site to help plan their class schedules and rate current and past professors on attributes such as helpfulness and clarity. Online since 1999, RateMyProfessors.com currently offers ratings on college and university professors from over 6,000 schools across the United States, Canada, England, Scotland and Wales with thousands of new ratings added each day.
I needed one class in order to graduate with a minor in Creative Writing. I had heard the professor for it was so bad, that I decided I didn’t want to take the class and get the degree. A good instructor can make you or break you… and can mean the difference in how much you actually learn.
