She knows a lot and though her tests are a little challenging, they are definitely doable. The textbook is used almost exclusively for homework and though some names or topics that you encounter in the course can be challenging, she tells you exactly what you need to know and makes it easy to pick out what you do not understand. The class's homework is bad but the hour and a half you have in the class is fun.
honestly she's not that great. I feel like she grades subjectively and she is not very friendly. She is very knowledgeable and smart but comes off as conceited. Overall, AP Euro is not terribly difficult but Ms. Peck is just not a match for me.
Ms. Peck is extremely knowledgeable about European history. However, her teaching style did not correlate with my learning style. All we did every day in class was copy facts from the board into our notebooks, which did literally nothing to help me remember the information. In addition, I remained confused the entire year about which of the million facts was to be important for the test and how to write an effective DBQ. She never seemed to want to help me either. Overall, not impressed.
Good teacher man this is the bomb boii
Cora Peck is the prime example of a teacher. If I wanted to put a teacher who was capable of making an AP class really feel like a college course with an intense and efficient professor, I would choose her immediately. Her lectures are absolutely entertaining and insightful, and she always helps kids out. She may sound very grumpy and hostile, but Ms. Peck is absolutely lovable. Her exams are hard-- harder than the AP exam-- but there's always a study guide. GET MS. PECK FOR SOPHOMORE YEAR!
all I can say is she's a great teacher and she makes class incredibly enjoyable
I had Ms. Peck for Honors Modern World History. Easy class, but from what I understand, difficulty in the class does increase entering AP Euro. She is a very efficient teacher and can keep the class entertained.
She looks like a strict and scary teacher.
However, I can assure you, she's anything but that. She reads tons of books and knows pretty much everything about anything, and grades easily too, dropping 2 lowest quiz scores every quarter. She somehow makes her history lectures both informative and fun to listen to (which I didn't know was possible), and her sarcasm is genius and hilarious. I especially love her running gags
To all you prospective 10th graders: TAKE AP EURO!
im in her honers history class, she is funny and smart. makes alot of jokes about french and russan people though. and is a four time jeopardy! winner.
She's the BEST teacher. She relates to her students, but not on a "tell me how you feel" type. You can just tell she'll understand you. She's really chill. She shows the funniest cartoons, but some videos are BORING, but her dry humor and sarcasm is insanely hilarious! She even makes lecturing fun. Honestly. One of the BEST teachers ever. Oh, and did you know she's a jeopardy winner? You'll find out when you walk in ;)
She a great teacher and really knows her history! She can be very helpful in her assignments. Her humor makes the class much more enjoyable.
Ms. Peck is a genius--she knows so much about almost everything.. I respect her for all her hard work and her class has been my favorite class in all four years. Take her class if you can! Her dry humor is amazing and she genuinely cares about her students. It wasn't an easy class (partially because it's one of the first AP courses you can take as a sophomore), but it was worth taking. Thank you Ms. Peck! I wish my college professors were more like her..
AMAZING teacher! Funny and very knowledgeable. She may appear intimidating at first but she actually really cares for her students. You need to work hard for an A though.
She's funny and makes history fun. Her class was one of the best I took at Irvine High!
lol. i did horrible in her class but its cause i didnt try. ms peck is the bomb
AMAZING teacher. She has a passion for teaching and that's what makes her great. :)
One of my favorite teachers by far. MS. PECK is a genius and her dry humor is fantastic. THANK YOU and we will miss you when we graduate!
Dude, oh mein Gott, her AP European class frickin' rocks! She knows how to teach, and she'll get you through the AP Exam, fa'sho. Just listen to her (which, shouldn't be too hard to do), and pay attention.
Fantastic teacher. Her AP European History class is one you HAVE to take.
Ms. Peck was by far the most awesome teacher at IHS. Even though I was a horrible student, she helped me a lot and cut a lot of slack regardless of what she says. Take AP Euro and enjoy, it will be a remarkable experience to have such a passionate teacher who tries and cares, even though it may not seem like it at times. Just remember to stay diligent. She does keep you working! Her teaching style is truly a reflection of college because it is lecture-style followed by lots of reading and quizzes. Worth it!
One of the greatest teachers ever. It's a tragedy that she has to teach US History-- I hated everyone in my class that was a "normal" student, because they just couldn't understand her. (Not to mention-- they weren't used to the lecture style of teaching, and wanted to have their hands held through everything. They were also disrespectful.) She has great stories to share, and keeps class active and fun. BUT I never liked her group projects. Those were rather awkward and annoying. She tries, though!
great teacher,I could sleep and fool around in her class though, she really liked her fourth period class last year(i think :D).she really helped us with preparing for the AP exam, got a 4 because of her,and is very clear.TAKE THIS CLASS!!!
Ok, so getting an A in her class is hard, but she's still super cool!
awesome teacher! Loved her class....i wish we had more teachers like her in our school. She's my favorite alongwith Gala and Jacob(s).
awesome teacher :O even if i did kinda get bad grades i liked her class alot
ms. peck is the most awesome teacher ever! she prepared us so well for the ap exam. i loved her class! she should totally be paid more! i love u ms. peck!
I LOVE MS. PECK! she rocks. makes history less impersonal and easy to understand and a really great person too. take ap euro people best thing i ever did.
She is a wonderful, dedicated teacher who would do anything to help her students succeed. Best history teacher ever!
TIGHT! Deticated and caring. Loves teching and it's obvious.
A really incredilble teacher who pretends to hate her students, while really caring and loving them in the bottom of her heart
She helped me get a good grade on my exam! Yay! =) And I love her to death. And I ran into her in Europe! Oh weird. =D
ms peck's awesome! so funny and makes history interesting :D
Is very interested in student's learning but is slow in teaching
