Best class for world lit. This is the kind of class that is fun and you can chill out in. Getting an A is really easy if put the right amount of effort. Unlike other reviews, she is not biased about your character at all. The reason that she seems tough for participation, essays, and projects is because students tend to believe that they can be silent in class or skim essays and projects. The tests/quizzes are on an all or nothing basis for each question. Studying hard can easily earn an A.

She's quite biased, and if you get on her good side, then your grade will prob be fine, but otherwise don't expect to get an A... She also tries to sound intelligent and be funny but lacks so much clarity in assignments. Don't let her smiles and laughing trick you.

She is the nicest teacher I have ever had! She taught me so much both inside and outside of class. I went to her during my free time and she helped me with problems I had regarding things outside of class. She is incredibly approachable and is genuinely a nice person. Her life story is inspirational and actually made me see the world a little differently. So sad she's not teaching world lit next year! Thanks Ms.McMillion for a great year!

My fav class of the year! She is really nice and gives you a lot of freedom. Her lit class is hard, so partici pate a lot and read cuz pop quizzes are worth a lot. Other than that you'll have a lot of freedom to BE YOURSELF. its the only class in my life in which i felt like i was actually being me and not restricted by fear in some way or the other.

She's very nice and chill but grades based on how well she likes you as a person, not on how well you use your literary skills. Make sure to talk a LOT in her class if you want a good participation grade; it doesn't even matter what you talk about.

She's really really really nice and caring about the students in the class. Yet I get the feeling that the grades are quite biased on how she perceives you, especially when it comes to participation.

Im not gonna lie. She IS one of those teachers that grade super hard in the beginning and then ease up to make it look like you're actually learning. BUT, she does such a good job of teaching and making class enjoyable that it was my fav class of the year.

There are better teachers than her. She just is lazy and has no clue what to teach to which class. wants to act as if she is tough, but ends us as a joke.

One of the top notch useless teachers, who artificially grades low early on to prove that her instruction is what is helping the students. A lazy teacher, basically.

It's a great class if you are good at lit. But for people who are not, the best advice I can give you is the seek help asap. Once you get what she wants, it's not that bad.

You will get better at writing PURELY through the number of pop essays she does in class. Other than ruthless drilling, however, doesn't actually teach much herself. GETS WAY TOO OFF TOPIC.

Class wasn't too bad; we almost spend half the class talking about random stuff and the other half just going over whatever we're doing. The beginning is tough but i gets a lot better later on.

In a stressful year like junior year, this class was so refreshing. You have to take initiative to improve, but she is always willing to help you. Great stories, and a FUN class! Not much homework!

She's wonderful, the class is awful. But she'll get you to write really well and help you understand. And she's a lot of fun. I just don't recommend the course, but if you take it, get her.
