in retrospect not so bad for an english teacher. but she is a bunny killer.
I've read what everyone else said... and I agree. Let's just say that Ms. MacLean is a little loopy and can't get organized for her life. She has a horrible tendency of taking off points AS WELL AS GIVING THEM where they are not deserved.
For example: We did a HUGE project at the beginning of the year... never got them back. Example 2: She took 5 points from an essay I did because I used a word incorrectly but only 3 when my five minute presentation was only half that long.
The worst English class I have ever taken. Impossible to get a legitimately straight answer out of her. Ridiculous.
ugh her way of teaching bothers me. oh wait, she doesn't even teach. in class all the class does is just read the current novel we're on. she is extremely sensitive about sleeping in class and she's just so awkward to have a decent conversation with.
She is a bit challenging, however, overall I would say she is a pretty good teacher. I feel like I learned a lot.
She's very nice, and she can be rather interesting, too. Super easy, and you have to do minimal work.
quirky, but nice. tells strange stories and has a funny way of lecturing. class is very chill. so easy, sometimes i wish we actually did stuff. never gives hw. kelly/maclean hum = super easy.
very weird but I LOVE HER. shes fun and rele sweet . fave teacher. hilarious stories. i will miss her next year :(
about 70% of your quarter grade will be decided on the last day. The discussions about our feelings can be funny. She's a very strange person overall.
If you are interested in English, take it! Otherwise, switch out. Great for college essays. Really passionate about the subject. Fun class. She doesnt play favorites - she loves you if try hard.
So, she gives a 13-question quiz worth roughly 10% of our total grade, then allows people who missed the quiz to MAKE UP THEIR OWN QUESTIONS and then WRITE THE ANSWERS TO THEM. I cannot believe this. If you want to learn english, take any other course.
Good college essay reviewer.
Very odd person, nice, but odd. Every single class was exactly the same: talk about the feelings you have about the pages read for hw. Extremely unclear about assignments.
Kinda weird, REALLY spacey, but english was easy and she had the best stories to tell. HUM was awesome this year.
absolutely TERRIBLE. take senior sem with lebryk-chao, bc mr. zack is worth it. but maclean is disorganized, plays favorites & hates you if you disagree w her
You have to work hard to get anything out of the class, and sometimes effort doesn't pay off. Can be very, very, very boring sometimes.
never clear what she expects on assignments, has a general dislike for people who don't agree with her, grades depend on how much she likes you,very unorganized
She's too touchy feely, like an out of work counselor.
she grades everything on completion. if you don't have time to do it well, DON'T! it won't matter.
Class discussions alot. Quite strange. She informs you about her personal life a little TOO much... but a fun and altogether look-forward-to-able class.
She is one of the kindest teachers you'll ever meet. She establishes personal, out of class relationships with the students. Kinda weird, a bit disorganized.
doesn't care at all for her IBET classes, never graded anything-therefore assigned BS grades, boring as ever
Wow, I loved her. She CARES and is good for college essays.
only english teacher i had who actually cared what you do.
Spent too long on poetry. Spent too long on Hamlet. Doesn't seem to plan lessons in advance. Doesn't understand the concept of team teaching. Had her for senior seminar (AP Lit).
