I took WHAP in sophomore year and passed with an A. I was set to go into APUSH because I only really enjoyed history classes, but after so many negative reviews I skipped the entrance exam. Unfortunately, I got Noice for regular USH, but it's not as bad. I mean, she doesn't do much except show videos, assign projects, give crossword puzzles and study guides. She would be a better middle school or elementary school teacher. If you hate history, good luck and half fun in this class.
Most of theses ratings are funny jokes, but I'm here to give you an honest opinion. If you have a passion for history, you will do fine and pull through by self studying. If not, this class will be a LIVING HELL. She assigns way too much homework, to complete it would be inhuman. On some days, you will be assigned about 70-100 terms, where you will be asked to define them ALL while giving it a theme and significance. The class is hard mainly due to the menial workload, not due to AP material.
Most if not all the APUSH students bombed the final. She said " since i'm nice i won't put the multiple choice portion(there was 2 parts a written short answer part and a multiple choice part) into the grade book" Stop pretending! We know what you're true motives were! If you put the grades into the grade book it only showed how bad you taught. She does not prepare you for the Ap exam. I don't even know what chapter we are in.DONT TAKE IT. ITS EMOTIONALLY /MENTALLY/ PHYSICALLY DRAINING!
Although she is a nice person, she does a fairly poor job in teaching.
APUSH : You should've not taken this class. Complete waste of time, effort, and struggles put into getting a 1 on the AP test. Noice is fairly unpredictable as she has 1 day notices for tests and is typically unclear with due dates. She also doesn't teach.
Regular US History : Extremely easy class as long as you do the homework and get a B/high C average on tests. Similar to APUSH but less work.
Verdict : Don't take APUSH.
everything is going great until you walk in Monday morning and she says you have a test tmr when we haven't learned anything. You say it's fine then on the day of the test you fail because she doesn't tell you what was on there and surprise surprise she says we have another test the next day. She might seem like a nice old lady but fact is she's a bad teacher.
her class is easy if u actually try. her tests are basically her study guide most of the time. she's a nice and bubbly personality, but get on her good side. you watch a lot of videos and do a lot of projects in her class so pretty much an easy A
worst teacher ever!She always give attitudes towards us when we try to ask her questions. Last week some students told her that we don't like her worksheets because all the questions are written randomly all over the paper in different dirctions. She responded by saying" I don't care". This makes me think that she is ignorant and doesn't care about her students. Also, all we do in her class is watching videos and take notes. Why bother to come to school when you could learn from videos?
If you like history, you'll do fine in her class and you'll probably do fine on the AP test if you study. If you don't like history, you'll do fine in her class and probably ok on the AP test unless you put effort into studying a lot on your own and you can still do well. Mrs. Noice is super nice, but her teaching methods are not the best for everyone. She tried her best to make her class interesting but sometimes plain old note-taking and lectures are more effective than activities and projects
She's a good person, don't get me wrong. I had her for apush and it was quite the experience. She doesn't teach. She wastes time watching endless videos and doing busy work. She's super picky with her projects. Anything you say will offend her since she's very sensitive. If you're willing to waste your time on busy work, this is the class for you. I didn't learn anything besides self-studying for the AP Exam. Easy to get an A in the class with all the assignments. Good luck.
She isn't that bad in my opinion, there were a few instance of being uncomfortable with her but overall, it's a easy and nice class I enjoyed it in my junior year. If you're an A student and are very good at projects you'll pass it so easily
Okay you guys need to calm down. She isn't a bad teacher, and all of your comments on her being the queen bee of projects is true, however, would you rather do that or take quizzes and test everyday. She's trying to make class creative and come on the projects aren't even that difficult. The only difficult part of her class is the worksheets/crosswords she makes. she's a wonderful teacher she was just brought up in different time period where students actually respected her..
Okay, all those comments criticizing Noice are quite harsh. Honestly, she was not a very good, nor was she a very bad teacher. Despite the fact that all she taught the AP class was the crash course, it was enough to score a 4 on the AP exam. What's wrong with her videos? It's a perfect time to sleep and relax. Her class is literally YOLO, so easy to get an A its hilarious. AP class does less work than regular, overall, not too bright, but knows to atleast use the crash course...
She doesn't even know how to teach, we're not kindergardeners, stop the coloring...
Obviously the best teacher on campus!
I don't think I was capable of hating a class as much as this. She is beyond stupid and her ways make students doubt her sanity. Tells us to come at lunch to ask about grades; when we do come, we get yelled at for interrupting her lunch. Honestly learned more from a sub in a week than her class all year. Its a useless class and all we do are one of the following each day: 1. videos from History channel, 2. art, or 3. more art. Then, after learning NOTHING at all, she gives the hardest tests.
As a student that wishes to avail on the privileges given to me by the United States of America it hurts me to know that i sit in a class room day in and day out coloring or watching the same videos over and over again while I could be taught with one of the many college graduates with US history degrees that would love this teaching position. This class should be taught unbiasedly. I would also like to see my tests after they are graded but I guess it takes too much time away from videos.
I am sorry, she is really nice, but wastes too much time on projects and movies. I feel that an AP class should be difficult not because of the tons of projects she gives out, but because of the college level material that will take more studying to absorb. If I watch one more movie in the next five days, I will scream. Who gives out projects WEEKLY and has the due date the same day as a test? With the amount of drawing I do for her class, I feel like I'm in Kinder again.
She's an easy teacher. Gives a lot of projects, but grades easily. She even gives extra points if it's pretty. The tests are easy as well, as long as you study. Gives too much vocab homeworks, but you can divide with your classmates over google docs to make it easier.
No or little class lecture. Too much homework, some are senseless. Talks non-academic things...One of the bad teachers.
She's not that bad, her class can just be very annoying. Don't think you'll learn something in her class, because you won't. Good luck self studying!
Stay on her good side. It's so awkward when she cries in class...
She's actually not that bad of a person despite the fact that she honestly can't teach. Projects, videos, projects, videos, that's it. She's nice, but if you get her, there's a lot of self-studying..
Possibly the worst teacher at this school. Gives projects every other week, even during AP week, shows videos about 1/3 of the time, very subjective, sometimes cries, an EXTREME hypocrite, and biased.
All about manners.... but students feel they receive no respects
oh my goodness. she doesn't teach, and when she does, she just reads off her notes. didn't really help in preparation for the AP exam, so basically it's a self-study class.
her class is easy, she wrote everything down and basically if u do the work and pretend you are listening,,,u will get an A,,,of coz, just read the book and u will be fine for the test
Good teacher if you actually pay attention in class and do the work the tests are really easy. Gives a lot of projects but the can save your grade if you actually do them. Gives tons of extra credit.
pretty cool teacher; her tests are actually pretty easy if you study her studyguides!! yea, she plays favorites but she helps everyone in the class with a lot of extra credit. overall, easy A.
disorganized beyond belief definitely plays favorites doesn't teach at all depends on crosswords and study guides tests are ridiculous GRR!
A little bit disorganized... but she is quite lenient and her happy moods are great. The homework was overwhelming and she gives too many projects. I actually learned a lot from her, though.
wow, i can't say anything about her that hasn't been said. we didn't really do anything remotely related to the AP test until like a week before the test. she's moody, plays favorites, and is boring
i love Ms.Nall! she stands up for her students and her class is very easy! If you do the outlines, youll be fine in her class
Pretty good teacher, had her for summer school. The major problem is notes, but i guess thats summer school. I learned some stuff.
I wish she would realize she was a "teacher" and actually "teach" us, at least talk to us and her instructions are very unclear she just seems disorganized
Very emotional and unstable. She always talks on her cell phone during class and didn't teach one thing all year. Hopefully she'll be fired soon!
It's rude that she talks on her cellphone to her boyfriend during EVERY class of the day. She can be hurtful without intending to be, too.
ok, here's the deal. lot of self-learning (aka, READ THE BOOK), but at least she makes the class fun. it was the highlight of my day! and the projects DO help.
oOo. i see my fellow apush ppl!! it's the end of the year- time to vent all my anger!! she gives stupid projects which does NOT help or prepare for ap test.
TOO MUCH WORK (HOURS OF OUTLINE!! -.-) AND THE WORST OF ALL IS THAT SHE TALKS ON THE CELLPHONE DURING CLASS TIME!!
Way too much busy work. Better off with a Barrons prep book.
I started to dislike ms. nall with every passing day of the year.i have her for APUSH and eventually started to dread the class. The class=indvidual learning
I have this teacher for APUSH and I can honestly say that if you actually devote your time and apply yourself to her class, you can learn a lot from her. :)
Ms. Nall is cool. I had fun in her APUSH class. She was so nice and supportive.
