This was her first year at UAH, and she has been the worst teacher that I have ever had. When she gives directions for a paper, they are very, very vague. She never gives high grades on papers...I hope you want a low B or C. She also tries to cram her liberal views down your throat. Word of …more advice...find another teacher. less

I think Dr. Balla is a very good teacher. She never tries to impose her own interpretations of text but opens doors for you to yourself. Very knowledgeable in context. And her door is always open, she loves to help in any way she can and is truly an understanding professor. Sometimes the amount of …more material a night is lenghty but great overall. less

Have you ever been given a C on a paper because it wasn't controversial enough? If not, then take Dr Balla and get that life experience out of the way. She's awful and I would advise anyone who is thinking of taking her to run away screaming.

It is practically impossible to get above a B on your papers. Also, if the class doesn't understand the text during discussion, she will NOT explain it to you. I usually somewhat enjoy literature classes, but this was terrible. Try taking someone else.

She is an OK professor. She allows the class to take control of the discussion, which is good, but not if the class is generally disinterested in the material. I've enjoyed the class, but found it difficult to get interested in the writing assignments. Her door is always open, and she's willing to …more help though! less

If you're not serious about English you're not going to like this class. She's very particular about the essays. The 1-2 page response papers are a pain because they're not due on any certain day, so I wasn't motivated to do them until 2-3 weeks before the end, and they really hurt when you don't …more get around to them. She's eager to help though. less

Balla would expect the class to teach themselves which resulted in 10 - 15 min periods of silence at a time. she seemed to be trying to get the class to "run the show' but thats an impossible task when people are either too shy or uninterested to lecture a class of peers.

Enjoyed her class. Papers were graded with loads of comments, some more useful than others. Response papers are a PITA, but only because there's no official due date, so it makes it harder to motive one's self. but that's our problem, not hers. otherwise, shakespeare was taught in a new and fun …more way for me! less

Dr. Balla is passionate about early modern literature and it shines through every lecture. Papers are graded quickly, replete with encouraging comments and constructive criticism. She is beautiful, challenging, open, and honest. I highly recommend taking her classes. She made me a better …more writer; I'm sure she will do the same for you. less
