I like her vocab tests and the fact she doesn't make us do our vocab books for nothing. Her tests are easy if u actually read and pay attention in class. I for one have fun talking to her always nice and supportive.
She changes her grading scale each 9 weeks, doesn't inform the students or parents what it will be, and it does not match what she states on her syllabus at the beginning of the year.
she does grade papers hard. If your not an english person, you may find this course challenging. She does improve your writing skills in the long run.. do your ec!! thats how I maintained an A in here.
I've never understood why some people don't like her. She's very nice and I never had much of a problem with any of the work, and I'm the kind of person that skipped that last 2 classes and lunch to get home by noon.
A very inovative master with a micro managed approach to lecturing. A very definative mainstream educator with a seductive feminine paradigm that commands respect and captures the imagination. A truly awakening experience.
HARD. she grades papers harshly but is always wiling to stay after school for as long as it takes to help u critique them before u turn them in. def has political views, but doesnt let them seep into her lessons
Sophmore year was brought down a little bit by Mrs. Martin. Its just a class that book smarts wont get you through. She doesn't play favorites and she is REALLY into politics. Avoid her at all costs.
in the beginning i thought she was really mean, but i like that she doesnt play favorites and she will still like you even if u have bad grades in her class.
its a semi-hard class; usually at least 2 essays a semester. And her tests are very difficult cept for julius caesar
She's a smart person and a pretty good teacher most of the time, but she likes history and the Opera a litte too much. She's a funny person, but has her mood swings.
mrs.martin is pretty good.she is tough but cool.after all you learn the most from tough teachers.she is so far the best english teacher i have ever had.
She was a hard teacher, but I wouldn't mind having her again. She disagreed with me on just about every topic of religion and politics, but I'm not that shocked
I don't see why everyone thinks she's mean and hard. Maybe if they took their Ritilan and listened to her teach they would pass with ease.
shes really sweet if you let her be. just shut up once in a while, you might actually learn something, she is too smart to be wasting her time teaching you
I usually love English, but she's ruining it for me this year. I know it's not supposed to be easy, but making me remember dates in English class is just stupid
unrealisticly hard - puts a lot of emphasis on her papers . . . class was fine cause she couldn't keep us from talking.... iono if shes a good teacher though
Not easy but very helpful. I'm learning a lot about writing.
She's a great teacher. Your classes aren't supposed to be cakewalks people...
well, to become a favorite of martin's, you'll probably need to be libral, not-to-religious, and in love with poety, after that, you got yourself an A
she's hard-won't tell you the answers-analysis is hard!!
nice and very helpful; tutored me after i skipped class and didn't nag
she is rude...says shhh way too much...it DOES NOT HAVE TO BE 100% SILENT EVERY SINGLE SECOND!!!!
boring, average teacher.... SHE NEEDS TO TEACH FRENCH...
First time I've had fun in English since sixth grade.
