Ms.Syed has a great personality, though she doesn't teach an awful lot. She assigns a lot of homework in a short amount of time, which isn't unusual. However, its almost as though she expects us to understand everything when we've barely learnt anything. There was very little textbook use and note-taking. We basically just do research, do homework, and have class discussions. If you have Ms.Syed, be prepared to pay full attention in class, stay on top of your work, and ask lots of questions!

She is a good teacher, helpful, and sometimes funny. Geography can be a dry, but not too hard. She is pretty chill.

she's an alright person, i guess... although she doesn't explain and clarify things throughout the course. she once got mad at me for missing a day at school for going to the HOSPITAL. my mom called in and everything. honestly, she doesn't really care about teaching the students, she never posted any reviews, our classmates did. and don't even get me started on the blogs. about half of the assignments that you do are formative. they don't equate to anything. overall, not that good of a teacher.

Ms. Syed is an awesome geography teacher! Her lessons are on point, she assists you when you need help, and she makes sure that everyone is on task and completing their work. Something she can impove on is her clarity when explaining the criteria for projects and assignments. The unit tests are pretty easy if you complete all the assigned work on google classroom and follow the review sheet. The blog questions are very easy and helpful for preparation for a thinking question on a test.

This teacher was the worst. She didnt explain assignments clearly and always expects so much in such a short amount of time. There were too many notes and she would flip through slides way too quickly. No one can understand what she is talking about because she expects us to be university students and understand the first time she says it. She also gave homework on top of her assignments!! She was nice but she can be rude if she doesnt like you.

she's a great person overall but as a teacher she is unable to properly explain projects and assignments to us because it kind of sucks to find out that you didn't do half the assignment because she forgot to post it on D2L....
