DON'T BE INTIMIDATED! While the class is certainly not easy, it's not nearly as hard as Missionpedia makes it sound. Books are indeed discussed after the test, and you can expect a B or lower on every test. HOWEVER, you can still pull off an A without ever getting an A on a test. Plus, there is negligible homework, and projects are graded easily.
In the words of Mr. Saldana, "It's not all about the points". Lindsey's class will involve fun activities and will teach you to think for yourself.
She will not give A's on tests unless you're an extremely good critical thinker. Her class is designed to make you think, not memorize books and text. You will get a good grade in her class if you really try. Nice teacher. I like her class discussion topics!
Awesome teacher. Her tests are extremely hard though. And tests are discussed AFTER you take them, which is weird. I always got C's on her tests, but got a B in her class :]
Whether or not she is a good teacher depends on the student. For me, she wasn't a good teacher since I had a hard time with the fact that the test comes before the discussion that is 2 weeks later.
She literally teaches nothing on tests. "This doesn't let me test your critical thinking skills as well." If you want 1 of the 3 As (english 10A) participate, say hi, use sparknotes, and write a lot.
It seems like you get stuck in a grade pit with her. I've gotten 85-87% on just about all my tests~whether I study well or not. I actually find her lectures quite interesting.
i don't dislike her as a person. but her lectures are so, so boring, and she grades extremely unfairly. unhelpful. i like the class, but not the teacher.
Great class, interesting/insightful discussions. She's a pretty hard grader, but i
Very knowledgeable and nice, but quite boring. I sit near the front and I still sleep. It's not that it's not interesting. She just needs a new style.
you will not learn how to write essays, but you will learn how to analyze books. tests are hard, study
Class and tests are extremely hard. She kinda grades on people's reputations. However, we have good in-depth discussions about the books and she is always there for you if you want help or to discuss.
her tests are really hard. but we don't get much hw. i wish we did more essays because I love to write much more than I like to analyze books.
GREAT teacher, very committed to teaching her AP class. very helpful anything you need. she deserves more credit than she may be given.
I really liked Ms. Lindsey. She taught for us to think for ourselves and really encouraged free thinking. And she really cared about her students. :)
She was the worst teacher I have ever had. Bases grades on how much she likes you. Only her opinion counts. Only teacher I've ever hated personally.
Lindsey is awesome. I'm learning way more in her discussions than i EVER learned in Lubarsky's...
so boring! but her class is very b.s.-able. i got a B+ in her class and a 5 on the AP test, and i didn't read a single book all year! :)
Great teacher for AP english. She discusses tests after we take him so we can come up with our own ideas and not just regurgitate what she said. Chill class too
Was always and still is very helpful. A very good teacher.
Not much done in class (read the hobbit, sleep) Most learning is done by yourself, but if you ever try to ask Q's she's VERY helpful. Extremely nice. Hard..
She is very helpful in college, however i am troubled she discusses books after the test. And the tests AREN'T easy. Do your hw thouroughly!
All she does is sit and discuss the books AFTER we take the test. How dumb is that? She is SO LAZY, she never wants to grade anything. No essays to write, tho.
Wonderful preparation for college. Whoever doesn't like her is just a science major.
