cry. this class was truely aweful. i had to physically hold my eyes open half the time. ugh. she was seriously the nicest lady, but her class was so hard and the workload was impossible. fustration.
Class is EXTREMELY HARD! Honors is like AP for her and her tests are IMPOSSBLE! Sometimes they have nothing to do with what we learned too D: Nice person, but she can't teach at all :/
Mrs. Van Etten really knows her stuff! She is hard - but then so is the AP World History course. She wants students to be successful and works hard to make it happen! Very fair and nice.
Hard workload. One of the hardest AP courses next to Bio, but she would give us bagel breakfasts and such. Learned a lot, but she moves waaay fast in the power pts. There's A LOT of material to cover.
focuses on irrelevant things, doesn't answer questions, values quantity over quality, extremely boring, too much busy work. i'd fail the AP if i didn't move and get a better teache
Do the work, and it will pay off. She expects a lot from you if you are in AP. And she expects a good amount if you are in honors. But that's the whole point of honors and AP.
She's really nice, but the workload is harsh sometimes. It's history people, it's SUPPOSED to be hard. Overall, she's a good teacher.
Mrs. Van Etten gives sooo much work and her tests are sooo hard, but I somehow like her. No, I love her. I really do.
Mrs VE is so dedicated compared to some other history teachers. The workload is heavy, but i think shes awesome.
She can be nice when she feels like it, but she's a horrible teacher. HORRIBLE. and clueless. avoid at all costs
worst teacher i've ever had! put me to sleep during every class. but if you want a good grade, all you have to do is use a lot of big words that mean nothing.
she's very nice and a good person- though sometimes it;s hard to get through her class, that;s HISTORY
ooh, she was bad. Nice enough, but can't teach. Boring lectures, completely un-thought-provoking work (and lots of it), irrelevant tests. Torturous.
She's okay and really nice but I think she has been teaching history too long
Mrs. Van Etten is nice but can sometimes be boring. If u do the work then you'll do well in the class. She tries hard to make the class fun.
I hate Mrs. Van Etten. She seems nice, but then she changed and can't teach. I can't believe she is the department head. She should take more education classes.
I love Mrs. V!!! She made me want to become a history teacher. I only wish I could be half as good as her.
was definetly a good teacher...you have to do the work!!
She teaches well but I dont really understand it all..she needs to review more before tests..
she's a great teacher but has no problem packing on the work...
she's a nice lady, but she gives a little too much work. She needs to set her schedual more. Yeah send good vibes to california??? a little odd.
