Now that I am a senior, I realize what a horrible teacher Ms Runice is/was. You are thought to memorize lots of material, but she really does not going into any kind of intellectual depth. The textbook was as good as she was. In fact the textbook was more interesting.
Really hard teacher, WAYYYYY to much hw, but you'll get a great score in the finals if you focus.
waaaaaaaaaay too much hw and very strict. but you learn so much! her accent made note-taking more difficult.
Gives bad grades. Relatively easy on tests. Hard grader on labs. Prepares you for final well. You actually learn a lot from her handouts, homework, and notes.
She can actually teach and she overteaches, but you can actually understand everything. She gives great notes and her tests are pretty easy if you pay attention to her homeworks. Finals will be easy.
just do well on her hard tests do all your labs and youll probably get a 90
Her accent is annoying to understand, but you'll get used to it. She gives OD homework and notes. If you learn to take good notes and pay attention, you'll do fine.
Overall a good teacher. He accent sometimes gets in the way of clarity, but she often repeats herself. She gives amazing notes, and you're sure to pass.
She's rather rude and condescending, but that's because she wants us to improve not only as students, but also as human beings. That doesn't mean she's easy, though. She's not at all easy. Scary.
i actually think shes not that bad and i sort of like her class...
she gives A LOT of hw, but she talks alot in class, so if you pay attention, youll get amazing notes.
Very funny, knows her stuff, gives way too many notes (she basically talks 7/8 of the class), lots of homework, times hard to understand her, but she does it for your benefit
I came into this class dreading it. I dont mesh well with strict teachers, and had never done well in a science course before. She is amazingly funny, clear, interesting etc. One of the best teachers
shes a great teacher. she knows wht shes doing. shes really nice to our class. And she gives AMAZING notes. if you miss a day its really hard to regain all the info cuz the txbk is horrible.
shes a really good teacher. you will definetely pass. it doesnt matter if she knows your name or not. she just gives grade according to your tests and stuff
From the first twelve days of having her, I'd say she's a tad strict. But hey, this is Stuy.
Dr. Runcie is not nice and does not care about her students. But OH MY GOD what a great teacher. She teachers so well and makes biologyvery easy to understand. Don't slake off and you will be fine.
One of the most strictest teachers I had but the best Biology teacher.Do the work, study, behave and you will be fine
Shes very helpful in class, clarrifying questions but also extremely strict. Very clear and concise on what we have to learn and gives extra for hw that she hasnt taught yet
While many people I know hate her, I found her a good teacher. My previous teacher had been simply awful, but Runcie managed to actually TEACH me. Hard, and not nice if you talk in class, but very clear and concise.
She's a pretty hard teacher, though the only time she speaks loudly is during her lectures. I barely ever hear her when she announces due dates and exceptions for the HW and stuff, and sit near the front!
She's by far the hardest Living Environment teacher. She gives long notes and limits questions. The homework is mind-blowing. But the result is usually very well trained students.
i personally did not do so well in her class, but i regret that i didn't try to get everything out of her class. in her class, don't worry about the grade but the experience. shes a great teacher. tough but youll learn a lot
great teacher. despite how mean she can be, you learn SO MUCH from her class.
she lectures all period but hardly ever gives notes. she repeats things to get her point across. she's really strict with lab drawings. she's a pretty good teacher though.
Dr. Runcie was awesome! Great notes. Try to get her to pronounce the letter "W" hilarious!
Although she's very strict with labs, you'll get the most out of her class. She'll repeat something at least three times to makes sure it's understood. Guaranteed to pass Regents
i had her for a week already and im already stressed out!!the stuff she's teaching right now is still review but she makes it so complicated..i dread everytime i have to go to clas
I am a freshman and the 1st time I had her she never showed up so we all just sat there. The 2nd day she showed up half way through the period and then left again to get textbooks.
really disorganized, but very smart and knows her stuff, though she lectures too much
She will make you work, especially in the labs. annoying, but you WILL learn. The worst part about her was that she didn't like my lab drawings. Also, can we stop messing up the
you all dont know whatyoure talking about. she is one of thebest teachers ive had (i should know i took her bio as a junior) and i hearned a lot. her tests are easy
This teach is sooo hard!! BUT I promise that you will learn in her class. My current bio teacher cannot teach and I now wish that I have her again for a second term!
i never managed to get good grades in her class, but shes a really good teacher, and if u listen to her advice, ull do ok in bio-lab. funny and nice. just that i didnt pay atten
she's a great teacher and she noes her stuff... but she could stop talking about jamaica once in a while... XP
an extreme amount of hw.. knows her stuff, but could be a little more interesting when teaching
She gives way too much homework. She takes away our free periods, saying we're behind. How can we be? All we do is take notes!
she says she can b nice and she is funni sometimes, buh i almost haf a heart attack every time i walk into the class cuz i get sooo stressed out
Nice teacher but she makes a complex topic out of something that is pretty simple and she OD's on labs. Most teachers let you do em half as well as she wants em
The best bio teacher in the building, easy tests and manageable workload.
at least she teaches better than giudice.... however, the class is very boring and tests are hard with cruel policies. but at least the information sinks in....
errr. bio itself is really complicated.. and so its really hard to understand.. and shes okay.. but she give SO MUCH WORK. and shes really strict.. do your labs
amazingly smart. yes her stuff can get complicated but the whole subject isnt easy. shes the best tho shes really nice and she mad smart
her accent is so cool, especially when she says "You get my point?" she's a excellent teacher
She's probably the best Biology teacher in the school, and can be funny at times. However, she gives a HUGE amount of work and her tests are rather difficult.
I had her class 1st period and she used to tell us we were late at 7:55...
