He is knowledgeable and vain about it. He is grumpy and sometimes mean. He has a dry, wonderful sense of humor. And he is sincere. Given any inclination, you will learn from him. But have a tough hide; the learning may not be comfortable. He has high standards that aren't related to the grade. He …more is not always clear, intentionally, I think. less

1st poster couldnt have said it any better. Ive had a few liberal professors - totally fine if they make statements on founded fact..he, however, does NOT. Very grump..yes; particular but unclear. Makes learning hard, but I guess worth it if ya put in the effort. He makes you think ya've failed …more when ya havent..kinda scary man honestly. Impatient 2! less

He knew a lot about literature and expected a lot out of his students. He would kind of be redundant though with themes.

This guy was an utter failure. He came into the class and treated everyone like a child, calling reading the dumbest people on earth, and acting all high a mighty. This man never replies to emails and he grades your assignments (first looks at them) when he has a one on one conference with you. …more This man did not expand my writing skill at all. less

If you're going to be a writer you need a tough shell. Jim is very responsive to work submitted in a timely manor. He does respond to his e-mails and he pinpoints the problem with your writing. If your writing does not improve as a result of taking his class, you might want to pursue another line …more of work. less

You really are responsible for how well you do in this course. He grades more on your quality than on content. While the one-on-ones with him weren't as frequent the peer reviews were extremely helpful.

Dear Jim, This is a journal of peace. ☺ I'd like no genre pieces either. Please submit. Regards, Abby Normal

Extremely hard class. It felt like a English major writing class! You really have to research a lot and must know what he's looking for in his writing. VERY hard to get an A!

Powell makes you work, but he provides plenty of help. I developed my analysis skills and writing skills more than I ever thought I could. This was my favorite class of the semester.

Powell is amazing. He's a little rough around the edges, but you'll walk out of his class having learned something.
