The class is very unorganized. If she likes you, the class isn't so bad. Make sure you participate!

Easy class. As long as you participate everyday you'll be fine. Not a lot of essays, her class was focused on talking in groups about events in the books you read. Most people had a B+/A- average, but Barkin is pretty harsh when she's in a bad mood and her class was unorganized and unpredictable. Other than than she's decent.

Barkin is oblivious to any form of common core or teaching structure of any kind. As a student of her Creative Writing Class, expect a good grade, but, not a good experience. Barkin will not explain any question of clarity in her assignments because they are, apparently, simple to understand. I attend an arts school for CW so I have an idea of what SHOULD be taught to High School Kids. Barkin likes to teach her ideas because SHE is always right, a perfect, all-knowing, human being.

She really cannot teach. She arrives late to our classes, cannot explain her assignments, no experience in literature, yells very frequently and always makes you feel like your work is worthless.

She is strict at times and doesn't explain exactly what she wants. Then when you don't do what she wants she gets mad. A hard teacher to deal with.

I think she is a very good teacher. If she likes you, you will like her.She gave me A's when smarter kids got D's. She's very enthusiastic and try to get on her good side or you will be sorry.

Overall she is a horrible teacher. Her grading system is very inconsistent; sometimes I get an A on essays, other times I get a C. I never know what to expect on her tests. She is not very helpful either. I asked her some que

She's a nice person, but she gives tons of hw and gets mad when you ask questions sometimes. Get on her good side and read the book and you'll do fine
