I'm surprised by some of the positive comments about Melhus. Lots I could say...but I'll just say that this teacher has taken the joy out of what used to be my favorite subject.
O Ingrid. In the beginning of the year you will notice she seems like really good but once you get to the third and fourth quarter she starts to lag a little. she crammed about 8 units into the fourth quarter and a final exam!! When we have nothing to do we just watch a social studies movie or play jeopardy. She is a good teacher most of the time but sometimes she can tend to slack off. Although she might seem easy her tests can really trick you sometimes.
Ms Melhus is the best social studies teacher I have had. I didn;t learn anything in social studies last year, but this year has been great especially the stock market game.
Love Her, totally amazing!
I'm sure that Ms. Melhus is a nice person, but so far she has been a little disappointing. She gives pointless packets about the inforation that is t even on her tests and projects where you basically have to teach yourself. On the other hand, she at least tries to teach you and she is knowledgeable about social studies.
She's sarcastic, funny, loving and understanding. Sometimes expectations are unreasonable, but she tries to be really helpfull.
I love Mrs. Melhus. She was the most helpful and caring teacher I've ever had. She taught me so much last year, and helped me in everyway possible. I wish I still had her as a teacher. You should feel lucky to have such a caring and sweet teacher for social studies.
Our class schedule -
1) Listen to her tell a boring story from her childhood
2) Collect guidelines for project
3) Use textbooks, books from library, and online reasources to gather information for the project that was assigned one day, and due the next
4) Hope to god you took good notes on other peoples' projects because that is all you're getting for the quiz tomorrow
(Where does she come in - you might ask? Nice one, she doesn't come in other than to assign projects)
Miss Melhus is amazing!!! I absolutely love her class and we learn so much! Keep up the great work!
handwriting hard to read impossible to take notes packets all the time margin noting isn't the answer for everything to much time on questions to then tell answer afterwards
shes fine when she actually gets out from behind her desk and does work, but she rarely does. her mandatory study guides are ridiculous and she doesnt teach students half the material on the test
Mrs. Melhus is the worst teacher I have had in a while. She is not helpful at and ruins my day on a daily basis. She is probably the most bias teacher i have ever had the displeasure of being taught by. She acts like she is neutral and then is clearly not. Mrs. Melhus is a Hippocratic , and ridiculously bias public school teacher. Her tests are unfair and she grades by the name on top of the paper. Mrs. Melhus is by far the worst Social Studies teacher I have ever had. Period.
Ms. Melhus Ms.Melhus relaxing free period of nothing. awesome and fun. Hilarious told us a joke about 7 eight 9. Hillarious never heard anything like that before
she isn't the strongest teacher on the team, I admit, but she is pretty nice.
Someone must take a stand and get this awful teacher out of our middle school. We are spending our prescious tax dollars to pay this woman's salary and waste our kids' time? It makes no sense!
Some one please tell her how to teach, is giving put packets and projects teaching??? i dont think so
Her idea of teaching a class is handing out worksheets. Then she sits at her computer and reads her emails. Then she tests us on somethng completely different
Mrs. Melhus doesn't know how to teach at all. Her way of teaching is project, movie, project, test. She desn't know how to teach.
She cares nothing about her students. All she does is shove information down your throat and hope you choke.
i didn't understand any directions she told us, she said something, and then left us to be confused
Project then test then a movie then another project. But she is preety ez!
