She's really nice and always tells the class that if anyone has something bothering them or have trouble with anything, you can ask her. She tries her best to help every kid, even the ones that are always late or don't try. Her tests are all fairly easy as long as you do the homework assignments and know the vocabulary. She even assigned special vocabulary homework when she saw people failing the vocabulary section of the test. "Forcing us to get an A" is what she says.

easy peasy for regular us. i skipped, slept, procrastinated, and still got a B. it probably would've been an easy A. and she knew my name even though i never participated. a really nice teacher, pretty interesting, and resonable homework. =] you also learn a lot.

She's sweet, she really is. A nice person as well as a good teacher. Not, say, Granucci quality, but one of the best currently in the department. Seminars are really stressful, but useful of college. Term paper and video project -- a little weird, but ultimately fun. Lectures could be worse.

ms. blinick talks ALOT and doesnt know your name unless you participate lot. she doesnt really have an organized way of teaching. it's like anything that just comes up ends up as a story, lecture, or project..but overall she's an awesome person..just not a GREAT teacher. shes okay though.

at first i hated her class. i hated the 15 page term paper. i hated the seminars with half the class watching the other class struggle for participation points. but now, im sad to leave her class. it feels like a family and i will miss her quirky lectures and group work (lots and lots of group work) participate and she will like you

Lectures = ok. Group projects = very big on. Term paper= she taught us how to do one, but there should've been more direction; same w/ the video project. Overall, she is extremely nice and understanding, but she's not that great of a teacher. A lot of the time in class is spent on discussing various documents, but she often doesn't give us a direction (even if we're supposed to form our own opinions. She also gets distracted very often.

VERY helpful, VERY understanding, VERY accepting of different opinions.. really encourages you to speak out. Sorta too quick and scattered for lectures, but if you at least make an improvement to teach better, that's better than being stubborn and drone the whole time..

Blinick is a funny and cool teacher. She digresses alot during her lectures and doesn't provide much useful info. She always try to satisfy her students' demands. Too submissive.
