Make sure to start off strong because your first few grades will stick for the year. Get on her good side! You can do well on essays by writing what she says in her lectures. She's a lil cutie.
Too old to be teaching. Grades on how much she likes you; essay scores based on how well you can recite her repetitive lectures. She loves her students, and she's a nice woman, but she's too old.
Maybe she was better decades ago, but she's 90 at this point and it shows. Copy what she says about each book and write it VERBATIM and she will shamelessly call it brilliant and give you an A
I had Mrs Gilbert almost 40 years ago and she was one of the best teachers I ever had. She was dedicated and enthusiastic and I am amazed that she is still teaching. She definitely prepared me.
Easy class to bs... if she likes you. did not prepare for the AP exams. biased.
her class teaches you nothing except one narrow view of each book
she doesn't prepare you for the AP lang test Everything you write in Lit has to be her opinion not yours you can't have your own opinion in that class its forbidden.
She doesn't prepare at all for the A.P English exam. The princeton cram book is a better teaching aid than she is. She made me doubt my writing skills. Wost english teacher ever.
Ms Gilbert is 88 years old and has more energy in the morning then all of us students combined!! She is the best teacher I have ever had and probably ever will! I love her so much! Mama G is on FIRE!
It's easy to tell that Ms Gilbert was an amazing teacher in her day, but now she's 88 and she's losing her touch. Still, she's an inspiration. I want to still be doing what I love when I'm 88.
Not a very good teacher, just wants you to repeat her own ideas and agree. Sure you might get the grade for conforming to her opinion, but when you get to college you'll realize she didn't help at all
she is a great teacher for eng. lit. but that doesn't really hold true for eng lang. she is really biased.. so if you dont write what she wants to hear, get ready to fail
BEST TEACHER EVER!!! AMAZING!!! CHANGED MY LIFE AND VIEW ON EVERYTHING. BOOKS: SUPERB CLASS: SUBERB PERSONALITY: EXCELLENT!!! A LIVING LEGEND!
what you get on your first essay is what you get all year. she doesnt like new opinions and picks favorites. i love the books we read but she doesnt prepair for the AP test well
She's a living legend. Was my teacher, then my daughter's. Some kids do great with her; others have trouble. If they can succeed in her class, college writin
She is the best teacher i have ever had. she is so insightful.
Wonderful person, she cares so much for her students and she exposes you to stuff you thought you would never read i.e. the Iliad. She's great.
shes a good lady, but she never always the opinons of others. an old dog never learns new tricks in her case.
I had Rose Gilbert 30 years ago and she was old then. Sounds like she hasn't changed, her favorites still love her and everyone else doesn't.
if you dont agree with her youre wrong... at least as she sees it, total favoritist and half senile but not terrible... has a strong following of teachers pets
Im a freshman in college and Id have to say that her class was def the most helpful...seriously I write essays so much faster than anyone I know!
i love her class, shes funny and really knows her stuff, I feel lucky to still have her considering shes 85
Really good teacher! She's been around, she knows her stuff.
the best!!! i had her AP for two years and i loved that class. I never read a dam book...got all the info offline. Just pay attention to her lectures!
