DON'T BE INTIMIDATED! While the class is certainly not easy, it's not nearly as hard as Missionpedia makes it sound. Books are indeed discussed after the test, and you can expect a B or lower on every test. HOWEVER, you can still pull off an A without ever getting an A on a test. Plus, there is negligible homework, and projects are graded easily.
In the words of Mr. Saldana, "It's not all about the points". Lindsey's class will involve fun activities and will teach you to think for yourself.

She will not give A's on tests unless you're an extremely good critical thinker. Her class is designed to make you think, not memorize books and text. You will get a good grade in her class if you really try. Nice teacher. I like her class discussion topics!

Awesome teacher. Her tests are extremely hard though. And tests are discussed AFTER you take them, which is weird. I always got C's on her tests, but got a B in her class :]

Whether or not she is a good teacher depends on the student. For me, she wasn't a good teacher since I had a hard time with the fact that the test comes before the discussion that is 2 weeks later.

She literally teaches nothing on tests. "This doesn't let me test your critical thinking skills as well." If you want 1 of the 3 As (english 10A) participate, say hi, use sparknotes, and write a lot.

It seems like you get stuck in a grade pit with her. I've gotten 85-87% on just about all my tests~whether I study well or not. I actually find her lectures quite interesting.

Very knowledgeable and nice, but quite boring. I sit near the front and I still sleep. It's not that it's not interesting. She just needs a new style.

Class and tests are extremely hard. She kinda grades on people's reputations. However, we have good in-depth discussions about the books and she is always there for you if you want help or to discuss.

She was the worst teacher I have ever had. Bases grades on how much she likes you. Only her opinion counts. Only teacher I've ever hated personally.

Great teacher for AP english. She discusses tests after we take him so we can come up with our own ideas and not just regurgitate what she said. Chill class too

All she does is sit and discuss the books AFTER we take the test. How dumb is that? She is SO LAZY, she never wants to grade anything. No essays to write, tho.
