Ms. Wold is the best! we have games sometimes which gives us extra credit. and we get minimum amount of hw but when she does give us hw, its pretty easy. her P.E.R.S.I.A tests are pretty hard but if you know ur material u should be fine. her class isnt boring either. she tells a lot of stories =)

She saved me on the APUSH exam. She knows what she's talking about and knows it WELL. ID cards are a pain, but they really do help you out on the tests. Her lectures are interesting and she always has some sort of media to share with you ... and you can't forget her prom tips. Want a five? Take her.

R.U.S.H: Any of her short answer/PERSIA tests are total BEEZIES!! Hell, any of her tests are hard. You really, really, really, really have to study. Homework is very easy and hardly given.HOWEVER. One of thee best teachers @ Lowell. I feel that she really cares about her students as PERSONS. Like, if you have a major problem causing you to not do well, you can talk to her and she'll definitely understand. Remember the days we felt as if our teachers were like parents? Mrs. Wold can rekindle those feelings.

She's seriously the best teacher I've ever had. She has the ability to make you excited for US history with her stories. She's legendary for her AP scores ("I won't think any less of you if you don't get a 5")

Amazing teacher. I hated the workload and her APUSH class was intense, but I got a 4 on the AP test without even opening the book or looking over my notes. Best history teacher at Lowell.

She's one of my favorite teachers ever! seriously, i have her for regular us history. I've learned so much from her and she doesn't make history boring. Her lectures are interesting, she doesnt give much work. just make sure you study atleast for tests and your good. her tests are pretty much to the point, so they're not too hard. i recommend her if u get a chance to take her for regular US history. i'm not sure about AP though, but i heard she's still pretty good.

She absolutely one of the funniest teachers I've ever had for History! I heard she assigns a lot of work for her APUSH class but her US History classes are pretty good. Her lectures are pretty interesting and she really wants you to do well in her class. I'd say..easy B but an A is definitely on the horizon. Participate, do your homework and do well on the tests.

She's an amazing teacher. I always get the feeling that we're ahead of the other AP classes. She knows the AP exam like the back of her hand, and she keeps telling us that after the year, there will be (only, but she doesn't say only) two questions that we won't know and should leave blank. She's a lot of work, but I really think I'm learning a lot because of it. If you do all the work well and do pretty well on tests too, she likes to give A+s. Do take, not if you can't work though.

I had her for my whole freshman year. She's really nice and funny. Not an easy teacher though. She only gives lectures and there are rarely activities, but the thing is that her lectures aren't boring. Her tests are the majority of your grade, but depending on your homework and participation, she will either boost or drop your grade.

She's really nice and awesome. She gives great examples so you can understand the concept better. Her tests are alright as long as you study well. She may boost your grade up a whole grade if you do all your homework and get a few checks & +'s on them. Gives homework every other day. She really knows her stuff, I learned a lot. Her lectures aren't that boring either.

he's really nice, but she's HELLA hard!!! there's so much work, but the class is nice. i wish it was my only class. at the end of the semester, i had a stack of index cards about 8 inches thick (and each one had a lotta stuff on it). she's really good, but her tests are killer! i hope i did well on the APs. all in all, you can probably get a 5 without doing all that work...

seh's nice~ reccommended if you really want to learn but her tests are kind of hard i read the chapters 4 times and somtimes still end up with a C on her tests but if you get one A and 2 B's and do all hw with +'s=A+but this semester, she was a easier grader than last semester, she doesn't really give homework, only once in a while, lectures are helpful, and she tells interesting stories to relate with the subject we're learning. she accepts answers even though it's not the one she has in mind.

i would most definitely reccommend her for apush. take her. her students do the best on the ap exam. no lie. tests are all right if you listen in class and read your book. no outlines! only id's, which aren't as bad as everyone makes them out to be. very helpful when APs come around.

great teacher! if you take her you'll definitely do well on the ap. the ap us book is crap, so her lectures definitely fill in the holes. the id cards ARE a lot of work, and over holidays she'll give you way more than usual to do. her tests are harder than the ap. i had brown second semester. if i had not had wold i would have gotten a grade less on the ap. over winter break you do this comic book thing about a topic in us history.

she is a lovely person and really cares about her students. however, she can be pretty hard and there is a LOT of work to do in her class. if you're taking 3 or more aps, watch out, cuz the workload may be overwhelming. she teaches a lot, but if you're so tired out from all the work, you won't learn much. i liked the class but got a 3 on the exam. pretty disappointing. but if you're a smart person, i'm sure you'll get a 5.
