It is very upsetting to hear this news. Doris Miller has passed away. Despite our disagreements I do believe Mrs.Miller really did try make a difference in our world through environmentalism and demonstrated great passion for what she did despite her illness and old age. May she rest in peace.
Lots of work that she gives and talks a lot. She has great personality but not the best teacher ever.
Not a good choice. If you are opiniated then you will get into arguments with her. If you keep to yourself, you will get a good grade. It will hurt your R score though because many people get the same grade.
Do things the way she wants and you will do well. Supposedly the homework isn't really worth 10% because I didn't do it and still got over 90%. You will think her stories are fictional but they aren't
Thinks this course is more improtant than anything, cannot ask her questions because you can't get in touch with her. Also if it isn't done her way with her opinion on things it's wrong
She is the worst teacher in the entire school! She is no help and thinks she knows everything. If you don't agree with her you're going to fail. She should retire! Do NOT take her!
Terrible teacher. Egoistic and unapproachable. Her courses consist of 2 major assignments, instruction for which are long, cryptic and confusing, and she penalizes HARSHLY for not following them.
Avoid her if you can. If not, start the assignments early and follow her instructions exactly and SOURCE, you will do fine. She always has to be right though and discussions are frustrating with her.
2 things 1) start her assignments the second she assigns them. 2) Bring something to do in her classes, as 3 hours in her class can seem like 12. Follow these rules, and I guarantee you'll do fine in her class.
She's very knowledgeable, however her classes and assignments are extremely difficult and require A LOT of work on them. Her classes are definitely not easy and assignments are worth 40% at a time. Not an easy course load so if you're looking for an easy pass or humanities course, do not take her!
You don't know what "boring" is until you take her. If she's your only option, DO NOT take her. Trust me. Do intersession or summer courses.
This was the worst class i have ever taken. i cannot put into words how bad this teacher is. Run! dont walk! drop this class while theres still hope!
i learnt a lot from her class, but her workload was INSANE! For the first class she spoke to us for 3 hours about shrimp, which is pretty much what she did for every class until we started doing our presentation. As long as the assignments are (~10 and 20 pages each) if you follow her mandatory outlines she will give you a decent passing grade. she gets really funny when she is trying to defend her points and it is her way or the highway.
It is her way or the highway...she is an easy marker but she gives an INCREDIBLE amount of work for a humanities teacher. did learn a lot from the class but all of my other classes suffered because of the work load from this class alone. She gives two assignments. My major paper was 21 pages long with 100 footnotes. If you are prepared to work like a maniac then take her...at your own risk. But don't say I didn't warn you!
she gives you the opportunity to get 100 overall, but demands A LOT of work for it. But no tests! I'd recommend her for anyone who is serious.
She is extremly picky about footnoting and outlines for papers(which are super long). If you follow these outlines EXACTLY, no more no less, you should be ok and get in the 90's. Her class is long and really boring. She sits there and rants and raves, and you can't get an opinion in edgewise. The worst part of the class is that you READ your entire paper infront of the class, which makes golf seem like an extreme sport. Just sit in the back where she cant see you, and you can nap a bit.
I thought i was going to fail her class but left with an 84%. You have to put in a lot of work that may in turn affect the outcome of your other grades. As long as you hand everything in you will get a good mark, even if it is all late....and at the end of the semester, when classes are over!
The only thing is that there is A LOT of work to do. But the bright side is that you can EASILY get high 90s, even 100. Her lectures are long, but you don't even have to pay attention! Just give your OPINION when she asks for it and you'll get flying marks. And you'll actually learn a lot if you pay attention. I usually have trouble with humanities courses (this was my third), but this one was the first one that I got a high grade.
You cannot argue AGAISNT her opinion, she'll slice and dice you from any angle. Just agree with her opinion and do work, very easy.
Easy marker if you do the work She knows what she's talking about when she teaches just dont try and disagree with her You CAN learn from her class if you really want to
Doris Miller? The lady in front of the class? I learned alot from the 30 pages student presentations. What I learned from Miller is "I'm the teacher, don't disagree with me!!!"
Ridiculously long papers for a humanities class. Way too picky. Nice woman outside of class. My advice is to avoid her class.
long hard papers, but if you do them right (i.e her way) then you will pass with awesome marks. just agree with what she says and move on.you will learn something if you listen tho
DON'T DO IT! Ok, she's a really easy marker if you do it right (I got 99 for the course) but i spent countless sleepless nights doing her freakin papers...
easy marker if you do the work but too emotional and pushy about her opinions. You cannot disagree with her under any circumstance .Evil lady.
The worst teacher i have ever seen in my entire life.Half the people dropped the course after one class,don't take her EVER UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES,AT ALL!
The first class you will be scare for all the work that she gives but she is a really easier marker if you fallow her outline. Easy to get a 100 in her class .
If you are attending school to learn, Doris is an excellent teacher. You will walk out of her class with advanced knowledge in regards to the subject material.
Boring as all hell, but EASY. Only work= 2 essays. Take her if you don't mind sitting through crap- you'll get awesome marks as long as you can keep your sanity
At the beginning she really freaked me out, she still does. People said she is a horrible teacher but you can actually learn something during class disscusion.
crazy, you'll hate the first 5 weeks, then it's smooth sailing
you may hate her at first, but she's an awesome teacher
