Getting Students Engaged 
“Positive outlook is contagious. I felt like i wanted to know more about the subject because she wanted and liked to teach it.” (Rhetoric of Pop Culture, fall 2017)
“Dr. Edgar is extremely knowledgeable about this subject as evidenced by the mini-lecture material. Admittedly, I didn`t have much of an interest in this subject prior to enrolling in the class. It took me a couple of chapters to really get into it but I attribute her mini-lecture and discussion board topics to completely turning it around for me. I liked having the feedback board as another place to communicate and get further clarification.” (Media and Information Literacy, online, spring 2018)
“very enthusiastic about the course, very friendly, used very interesting and fun topics, made the class so interesting and fun that I was disappointed to be done. I wish I could take this course again for credits. It was super fun! I loved the videos. Dr. Edgar was awesome!!” (Media and Information Literacy, online, spring 2018)

Definitely an effective teacher, made things as easy to understand as possible and facilitated a fun learning environment.” (Media and Information Literacy, spring 2018)

Crafting Enjoyable Projects 
“I love Professor Edgar as a person and a teacher. She is very engaging and came up with really interesting projects for us to do to apply the media and identity theories we learned in class. I would take one of her other classes if I ever got the opportunity.” (Honors Forum, fall 2017)
“The portfolio was really interesting because all the aspects that are vital to Media and Info Literacy were compiled into one extensive project. I liked how we had choices on most weeks because it allowed students to find ideas that they connected with the most. It also helped connect course ideas with life outside of the classroom which was a huge positive. And spreading it out over each week helped to have a better grasp on that week`s lesson.” (Media and Information Literacy, fall 2016)
“The assignments were unique and engaging--an excellent way to teach this subject. You were an enthusiastic and knowledgeable professor. I had trouble grasping the purpose and application of rhetoric at first, but you taught it very well and I now have a good understanding of it.
