Subject: Impossible to get below a B  (Feb 23 2003, 09:56PM)

 This guy is cake. I never once paid attention to his lectures. He has his own book with these exercises that have to be handed in one a daily basis, but just do them all while he is talking. Attend the class and write the paper, you can't get below a B. Even my Academic Advisor said, "His class is kind of a joke isn't it." Just be nice, if he tries to make a joke crack a smile to get him to like you.

 This guy is easy. You have to write 3 small papers about yourself. Then you put them together to make one large paper. You do not have to do any research papers or anything for this class.

Subject: The Best College Writing Prof.  (Jan 27 2003, 06:01PM)
Student: Steve Bonebrake (Biology - Pre-Med)
Class:College Writing (A)
 12 of 37 students found this review helpful.

 Dr. Kalmey is the best college writing professor you could possibly take. He normally lets you out of class very early and assigns little to no homework. The only work you do all semester is read three small books, and write an autobiography about a skill or sport you take a lot of pride in and your morals. This sounds really scary, but he makes it so easy. You slowly write chunks of it throughout the semester and then you slap it all together at the end. His "Green Book" that you purchase is excellent. Dr. Kalmey will make you an excellent writer and free you from using "colloquial" english. If and when you take a class where the teacher also thinks he is an english teacher and disects every little thing in your papers you will be able to combat him/her by writing good papers in the first place. Sign up for Dr. Kalmey's class if you have the chance.

 Dr. Kalmey is a good man. He grades easy and respectively calls everyone by their last names. I liked him a lot, and he'll work with you on late assignments, and doesn't assign all that much. A 24 page paper may scare you, but it's only the papers you've already written put together.

 I remember I took him and we did Shakesperian sonnets. For most of the class, he lectured. He may be slightly boring, but he was easier to get through than the other choices I had for a seminar class. We mainly did two papers and read them out in class.He was a very nice guy and treated his students with respect by calling them 'Mr.' or 'Miss'. I miss his class.

 Dr. Kalmey is a really nice man. He never enforced deadlines and loved to help you with papers. I would take him again in a flash.

 I had Dr. Kalmey for college writing for about 2 weeks and he left due to illness. For them two weeks I fell in love with this professor, he's a sweet older guy. The only thing is you must read 3 novels for the class and you never have 2 write a paper on them. You have to write a page on a skill that is at least 25 pages long and then you work on another paper and combine it with the first one to make 50 or so. Since he left due to illness for the semester i didn't have 2 write the papers, although if I did i would not have complained because most of it was done i class.

 Dr. Kalmey's class is pretty easy, but so boring! He usually let our class go early so we weren't there too much, but when we were he bored us to death! You have 3 books you are supposed to read but you don't even have to! Just read a chapter or two and write an assessment of it and then thats it. Nothing about the books is ever on a test. In fact there are no tests in this class! 3 papers that all interact with each other and a final essay. Its not too bad but he is obessed with your papers being perfect the way he wants them!
