As most students are politically illiterate, I'm not too surprised by her relative impatience. If you are a severely political person, an apolitical person will drive you insane—more so than someone on the opposition. I was far from being a favorite and I didn't pass with an A, but I think I held my own.
i hate her with an utterly powerful passion, fueled by hatred of her grading, and her style of thinking by making students look stupid and stepping on their confidence like a pile of doo doo is a good way to teach, she cares but she cannot and will not and can not convey it in a nice nor appropriate manner.
She's not a bad teacher at all. She has justifiably high expectations of her ap gov students and doesn't deal well when students are slackers, but that isn't a bad thing. Cares about if we're swamped or not and really is very nice.
I come from a biased view as I was in her AP governmnet class. I hear horror stories bout Ms. Weiss when she utterly destroys students with questions. She has little to no tolerance for students who do notput in effort(e.g not doing hw, cutting class). However, in my experience she is very passionate about what she teaches. I had a great year with her as she can be very funny. In addition, I was well prepared for the AP exam. As long as you stay motivated to do the work, it is an easy A
She is good teacher with good assignments. But she is hard, strict, unclear grading.. I dont' know how she does the grading. It's confusing me...
Anybody in this class should get out she is a pain to deal with and she is so freaking boring.... we all went to sleep!!
I took Mrs. Weiss for AP Gov and econ. Tremendous amount of reading and assignments in APAG, but I guess it's to be expected. She likes to put people on the spot with questions, so do your reading.
This teacher is so boring you fall asleep after just looking at her
Really strict, has favorites, and doesnt give you any breaks, if you're not in her class one day, say good bye to all your points for that day
She's totally unfair and moody, but to be honest, she does try to make the students understand the lessons. The class can be scary sometimes Just try to be one of her favorites ;-)
Just don't get on her bad side and you'll be fine. There's quite a bit of reading in AP Gov't, but it's pretty easy and she's actually a pretty thorough teacher.
She is mean and picks favorites. she has no sympathy for seniors. just keep up with the work and DO NOT CUT CLASS. Even if you clear your own absences, she's skeptical.
AP Govt. is not that hard. Ppl like to fall asleep in this class but as long as you read and pay attention at least half the time you'll get an A.
Her class is hard! There's a ton of work too. Homework somewhat outweighs tests. You do learn a lot from her class though.
She picks favorites and grades some people harder than others. She is very moody.
a hard class, kinda strict. i dont like her pink cards.
