outstanding teacher. liked his methods of teaching and he interacts with the students a lot. He's clever, very knowledgeable, and is a really friendly guy. VERY heavy reading, however, he will allow you to turn projects in pretty late. Offers lots of help and provides multiple ways to contact him. Take his class if you like literature!!

prof. Sullivan is very animated and does a wonderful job pulling out fascinating truths about American culture. The class is a little bit more reading than anticipated, but his accommodatingness and availability more than make up for it. He is super encouraging for someone who struggles in writing papers as well.

prof. Sullivan is a passionate teacher and very knowledgable about the subject. It is a tough class though. A lot of work but he allows you to re-write any paper he grades. It is an simple A if you take advantage of the opportunities he gives you to revamp the papers you write.

This man demands far too much work for what his class is worth. He is a chill guy, however I would recommend to stay away from his class unless you have nothing to do or LOVE to read 50 pages of work from mon to wed. I wasn't a fan of his teaching style, he loves just breaking into groups and having us figure it all out. greatluck!

A lot of work. You need to be dedicated, but prof. Jim tries to make it as fascinating as possible. We had a field trip! (not mandatory)

Not an simple A, but anyone who tries can definitely get an A or B with no problem. He has an infinite re-write policy so you can improve your grade all semester and is very flexible with due dates and projects. He's always available for clarity and helps as much as he can. I learned a lot in this class and i feel prepared for my semesters to come

Very insightful prof. and makes English fascinating. I never thought that English could be the least bit fascinating and fun. I actually looked forward to do many of the projects. Whenever I was confused or needed any type of assistance or guidance, he was very efficient in doing his job. I would recommend this class =)

Took him for an online class. He ****ed the class to be fun about CA Art, English, History, etc... and it may have been but... there was so much work there was no way to keep up. If you are a working professional trying to go to school at night/online, stay away. This guy thinks everyone has 3hrs a day to dedicate to his class.

outstanding class and prof.. Jim is enthusiastic about what he does and wants all of his students to succeed. It's a tough class but if you're willing to give it all you got you should have no problem getting an A.

great class if you're willing to spend 3 hours a day on hw and reading if not it is difficult. The reading really sucks its a book full of people whining, complaining and over analyzing little things, and then he makes you apply the complaining to your papers.

difficult class, he expects a lot, but he is very willing to help. He really tries to make you a better writer. If you don't mind working for a great grade take him, your work will pay off.
