Eng 210-Expository Writing

IF you want to improve your writing and have fun doing it, this is the class for it. Same format as 110 (a one-pager due every three days), it starts off hard, but soon becomes fun. Hash's combination of wit, quirk, and experience are like an old polished wooden stair up to better writing, that creaks when you test it and tells you just what you need to know. I recommend 110 and 210 to anyone who wants to write: Whether you haven't before, or you have and want to expand your range, or don't like writing but want to, Hash's classes are in my opinion the best writing classes at Whitman, great for experimenting.

Hashimoto is incredible! He makes the class extremelly entertaining and valuable. He also still knows me, more than a year later. There is alot of homework, but once you get the hang of it, it's not too bad. He's also extremelly approachable, and asks for students to come in and talk to him.

English 110 -Language and Writing

Fantastic! I thoroughly enjoyed Hash's English 110 class. His teaching style is really interesting and I can't wait to take another class with him. There are a lot of papers, but they're generally pretty short adn I personally found that they were easy to write because they were so enjoyable to work on. The class teaches you to think outside of the box and teaches you to add personal voice to academic writing to make papers more engaging. While the topics are often bizarre and creative (One prompt consisted merely of the three words "bobsled, spatula, karate") the class isn't a creative writing class, but rather it teaches you to streamline your writing and helps you to realize that academi writing is a style that isn't reliant on the subject. Classes usually consisted of going in a circle and reading aloud your papers for the week (of which there are typically one or two) and getting feedback from classmates as well as from Hashimoto. I found it an entertaining and valuable experience.

ENG 110 - Language and Writing

Hash has a teaching style that differs from all profs I've had. At first, I wasn't tuning into it, but I slowly figured out his style and really enjoyed his class. I took ENG110 the first semester of my Freshman year. Most papers were 1-2 pages, but towards the end of the semester there are 4-pagers. Be prepared for the paper topics. They range from carp recipes, to james brown lyrics, to crickets, to jack handy quotes. Usually we wrote 2 papers a week. What's cool about writing about nontraditional topics is that you realize you can write a good paper about anything. His grading was not bad, as long as you followed all directions and showed creativity in your paper.
