She is a very nice teacher and she would be a good friend but not a good teacher. the way she puts stuff off over and over makes time management hard. She said she wanted to save paper but she's given my class one handout 6 times and it's not even a paper outline. She doesn't actually teach and relies on her handouts so you can teach yourself. DO NOT RECOMMEND. SWITCH OUT IF YOU GET HER.

She is a great teacher. People claim that she does hand out a lot if worksheets, however those are basically the answer keys to the Unit Exam. She does know her stuff and is very knowledgeable. He is a very reasonable teacher, for if I have many exams on one day, she will attempt to postpone her social exam. Most of the class is spent lecturing which I do not mind, as I learn things I could not learn anywhere else. I sadly only have her for a semester, but I really enjoyed her teaching me.

This woman knows her history but not how to teach. If you aren't planning on reading approx. 15 handouts a night, or lugging around 3 2-inch binders around to hold all you're stuff that you will inevitably lose, you wont have as much as a clue as to whats going on. Good luck surviving that god aweful boring class every day, you are better off teaching yourself cause thats what you will be doing anyway come diploma prep time.

she will be the reason trees become a thing of the past, I'm surprised the forest of trees in millcreek ravine is still standing due to the amount of handouts we get per class, that you wont go over for another two weeks when they were nothing to you and you lost them. lectures allllll class and wonders why noone is interested in what she has to say.

Avoid if you're not a fan of boring teachers. Also, avoid if you aren't a HUGE social nerd. Talks for 80 mins, no class time and her marking of papers and worksheets is the toughest in all of Wagner.

She is not very good at explaining the content to students. I've just come back from a Social Diploma prep course and, seriousy, I've learned more in the past 4 hours than I have all year.

She's very manipulative. Her teaching style is in no way effective. She never motivates you to do well in class, and is under the impression that you're in social to become a historian. Just don't.

Boring and hard to get into. If it's not word for word from the textbook: it's wrong. Flexible to a degree. Not mean spirited, but comes off abrupt and cold: she tries too hard. You can do better =/

Poor teaching style, prefers to lecture and leave actual teaching to her handouts. Good for extending deadlines for her large amount of worksheets. My worst teacher yet.

She's a teacher who definitely knows her stuff. Her class is hard work, but she'll teach you more than you'll need to know. She's extremely fair with negotiation, such as if you request an extension for a plausible reason.

Mrs. Peterson certainly knows her stuff! She knows everything to do with social inside and out. There are alot of worksheets, which make classwork heavy, but you can be sure that you'll know your stuff for your finals!
