Not an easy teacher, you will work for your grade. I was in her normal class and loved it so much I took the jump to AP. I'm so glad I did, she made me the writer I am today.
She's nice....but she grades hard, and is pretty subjective when she does. She's also pretty fake at times, in how she talks to students regarding non-classroom related things. Then again, what high school teacher isn't.
Too much fem stuff. she's kind of a prude and she does not give insightful feedback. however, I became a better writer.
Why can't all English teachers be like Harwood? She explains things clearly in class, she's funny, and she's super knowledgeable. Also, read the books she repeatedly mentions. Hint, hint.
Hands down, one of my favorite teachers ever. She's so adorable HAHA and she cares about every single one of her students. Mrs. Harwood has only increased my love of literature
honestly, shes my favorite teacher at IHS. thank you mrs. harwood.
Mrs. Harwood is one of the most compassionate teachers I've ever had at IHS. Not only is she a phenomenal english teacher, she also takes the time to get to know her students. Her AP English class has been my favorite english class, ever.
sweetest lady ever. very nice. kind of a nice change after having a strict teacher like freed in 10th grade. takes time to bond with her students. good teacher. basically only essays/writing determine your grade though so usually people get B's
mrs. harwood is soo nice! im not even joking! she is a really easy grader and thats wat i really like about her! she also gives a lot of extra credit which is really helpful! she is my favorite teacher so far! shes the best! and if you have an F or a D in her class! wow! you need help like now!!!
Harwood is one of the nicest teachers in the school. That said, your grade is consistent the entire time. If you aren't a strong writer, her techniques and strategies do help but they'll show in other class grades rather than hers. She can be a bit wishy-washy, but which teacher isn't? Take her for AP English, get a decent grade and extra weight point, thank her for granting you the ability to write a 10 page essay in one night and still ace it in college like me and all of my friends! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
Incredibly nice and entertaining. She really got me motivated into reading the novels she selected. Give plenty of insight and you'll have it in the bag. Not easy A but a great class.
She is a very, very nice person and quite entertaining-- but not as fast-paced as many other teachers. So some people find her boring. I think her lectures on writing are very interesting, but she's a very subjective teacher and that isn't for everyone. Not on task all the time, but it's fine because the work sitll gets done. Enjoyed myself, though sometimes I was a liiiiittle bored. She picks favorites very obviously. That's the only thing I can gripe about.
Mrs. Harwood is a very nice teacher who wants her students to enhance their literary skills. No matter how horrible your essay is, if you complete it she'll at least give you a C.
The grades I got on my essays never fluctuated. It almost made me not try to do my best anymore, but I still did. Mrs Harwood is a sweetheart. Her class is fast-paced. Do your work on time and be respectful of her. Ask questions and provide insight..you'll be her more-liked student!
her grading scale is somewhat ridiculous...what other teacher does a 11 pt grading scale? she never gives printouts...the only grades you get is on your essays and ocassional projects...barely any solid As. and B+/A- grades are heartbreakers. when you see one on your paper that you worked so hard on, you get a "Nice try. you ALMOST made it!" in your head.
your grade will never move in this class, all the papers always come back the same grade as the last... but she is nice and helpful
Great is you are in AP, but practically ignores her "normal" classes. Sheesh.
man...what can i say....mrs.harwood is a great teacher! so far she has been the best and most enjoyable teachers i've had.. she is a cool cat inside and outside
she is the best english teacher ever! She's so nice! You have to love Mrs Harwood! :)
Good grief, she has no set grading system. God help you if you're one of her "C+/B-" kids...
Wonderful teacher! I learned so much! Her 0 period class is amazing!
yay!!! 2nd best teacher i've had after ms. freed! yay
MRS HARWOOD IS THE BEST!! VERY INSPIRING n WISE=D i love your class!!
