I barely got B+ in this AP Class, which was supposed to be the easiest AP class, even though my AP test score is 5. All my other AP grades are A even CS, Biology, etc. There is some disconnect between her tests and the AP testing.
"These bulbs are expensive you know"-Elva Card
Honestly, if you just took her out of the class but still got assigned the work and the exams, you would be getting the same exact grade as if she was in that class. To put it bluntly, don't expect to be taught.
She thinks she knows everything and shoots down anyones opinion that is not exactly like hers. She always starts a question with "Uhmmm" and clearing her throat which becomes one of the most annoying noises. Only take her class if you can teach yourself the AP exam because she tells you absolutely nothing. She is very snobby and doesn't care how nice you are because she acts like she is supreme and everyone else is dirt. She doesn't care about anybody.
I am shocked by the negative ratings Ms. Card has recieved! I have honestly never met someone with such a kind heart. Her love for history is inspiring, and she is very knowledgeable in the field of history. People question her repetitiveness, but she has filled me with knowledge. Ms. Card is a caring, nurturing, woman who deserves much more respect than she is given.
soooo boring..thinks shes a great teacher but she really doesnt help you AT ALL for the AP tests. its so hard to stay awake in her class..we always do the same exact thing every day. yeah she is nice but her teaching is terri
A fine person, but a pretty terrible teacher... She didn't prepare us very well for the AP World exam, wasn't ever clear about assignments, and assigned tons of cliche, busywork type stuff every class. We also watched the sam
Nice person but really bad teacher. She really doesn't prepare you for the AP test at all. In her classes you really don't have a chance to learn anything because she gives you all the answers. Also, she teaches the most inan
Ms. Card never actually helped our class prepare for the AP Exam. For the three essays were required to practice, we only did at least 5 opposed to the World Civ class who were more prepared with the essay. She tends to be ve
i don't understnad why people don't like her, she might not be an easy teacher but she's still good in my opinion, not mean either, if a little awkward sometimes
I like Ms. Card, she's really nice, just don't be obnoxious and do the work and you will be fine. I got an A- in AP Psych.
I love Elva, but I didn't do well in her class because I didn't really understand the material. I guess that's mostly my fault
I really like this woman. She does have some problems teaching and isn't the best teacher. But she is a nice person and very kind and helpful.
first of all just becuase u dont pay attention in her class doent mean she sucks at teaching! shes an amazing teacher and thanks to her ii love history its not boring anymore. so dont believe what others say about her.
She is a pretty mediocre psychology teacher. It's clear that she does not know her subject ("I don't know, I'm sorry..." is one of her favorite answers to student questions)
probably one of the worst teachers i've ever had. i learned next to nothing but the apworld test is easy. she'll try to be politically incorrect to make a point but it usually just comes across as offensive.
she has actually "disagreed" with the textbook, yet the classes are nothing but reading it - which is lots of useless busy work - or watching videos. can't answer any questions beyond the text - far below an AP level.
riddle me this, if this woman gives you an A every quarter...you would think that you would pass the A.P. exam...ummm apparently not. do yourself a favor and switch out immediately
this woman answers every question with "um...im not quite sure about that!" and its so annoying when she pauses the video and says EXACTLY whats about the happen.
Talks about the same things over and over and over. Passed my AP exam tho so i guess it was alright. Dont mention Mulan.
good but could do a better job teaching and helping those who are struggling in history
I think shes okay ,besides what everyone thinks..alot people seem to not like her as much..some teachers too. But shes really nice and gives good lectures.
She tries to act very intellectual, as if she knows everything. Gives way too much work, tests are harder than that of other AP classes. Kind and generous person.
Makes you handwrite pages and pages of vocab & chapter questions. You learn what you need to for the exam, but she is condescending and forgetful. Extremely rude and snobby :(
easy enough if you can teach yourself, tests come right from the book, if your opinion doesn't match hers its wrong and if you don't quote the book you're wrong, very clueless
Thanks so much for never letting students know what their grades are during the quarter until its too late to learn from their mistakes!!! Not at all helpful.
Mrs. Card... Tests are not designed to purposfully FAIL students...
really nice woman, just a bit nutty, AP world is pretty easy with her though
Frightening. Alludes to personal problems of the past and present during class. Has admitted she does not read homework questions and just grades ones done.
very helpful and understanding. a bit flakey but sweet.
if you want an A take her class, if you wanna learn take something else
yes elva, asking you to stick a test through a scantron machine within a months time is asking a lot...she's about this helpful and organized with everything...
