Katy is a very nice professor. If you follow the rubrics, then you'll be fine on every assignment! If you don't, then she'll drop your grade a lot (like 50% if you miss one small thing). Not much reading at all, but a decent amount of papers (basically what should be expected). She has a clear …more schedule that's easy to follow. Overall great! less

Her grading style is all over the place. She'll give the whole class a unanimous 85 on a writing assignment for no good reason. I believe her psychology behind it is probably so people will want to improve their writing, but it really discouraged us more than anything. I don't get the sense that …more she actually cares about her students. less

Professor Abrams was one of the best professors I've had at App! She is very caring and understanding towards her students, and she will help you if you're struggling. She gives a clear and cohesive schedule at the beginning of the semester so you can budget time and work ahead. Would take again …more and again! less

The single worst professor Ive had at Appalachian. Ms. Abrams created a document for the class with what she thought was MLA format. She was wrong and about half the class used the 8th Katy Abrams edition and she took points off. All in all just a bad teacher, appears to care little for what she …more does and less about the students trying to learn less

I took the summer class and I thought it was tough, but she was pretty good. She told us afetr like every class that she was available if we had questions and that was nice to know. Grades kind of a lot for class participation. She gave explanations for everything you just had to read the …more directions and look at examples. Its your own fault for not. less

I'm the student who actually had the MLA discussion with Katy. I was the only one to miss her requested format and used the standard instead. This mistake was only worth 3 points and after we talked she returned the points and there were no other issues in her class. The other review is …more misrepresenting the encounter and is factually incorrect. less

Katy is the BEST! Show up, participate and ask questions if you're unsure about something. She's really fun and truly does her best and you should too! She's more than happy to clear stuff up if you feel like you missed the mark on an assignment. Respect her and she'll respect you too.

She is a very sweet lady but an unreasonably tough grader. We'll have conferences with her, she'll give us criticism, we'll do what she says but then get a bad grade. She cares though, it's just she is a really tough grader and can be unclear with what she wants.

Just okay. I'm not an English person, so my opinion may be different. Definitely choose a different professor for this class. Gives a lot of assignments back to back. Hard to make quality papers. I gradually learned to hate this teacher. She didn't even really teach us much at all. We just wrote …more and let her grade us poorly. No one gets a 100. less

Her grading is horrendous. She gives more opportunities to the students she likes, and her grading is inconsistent. If two students make a similar mistake, she'll grade each differently. She's awesome to talk to as a person, but as a professor, she's unclear in what she wants, and how she wants …more things done. If you're not amazing at writing, drop it less
