She is a good professor. She is very specific about how she wants assignments. The good thing is she explains clearly what she wants and is usually available after class to help. She knows a lot about the subject and you will learn in this class.

Robins is awesome, for sure taking her again. The class is intense but you learn, if you want an easy dont take her, but if you want to work for your A and actually learn something then Robins is the professor for you!

Dr. Robbins standards are very high. An A in her class is very possible.... but you'll have to work for it. She is very fair and approachable. If you want to be TRULY PREPARED for your student internship take her. Slackers will not make it through this class.

Robbins is an amazing professor. If you are lazy and want an easy A, don't take this course. She expects full effort and dedication in order to pass. She challenges students to do more than other professors, which is helping to create QUALITY future teachers. Extremely stressful and time consuming but you will be grateful at the end.

This class consists of a TON of work. You do not know what stress is until you take this class. Teacher is clear on exactly what she expects and is always willing to answer any questions. Do not be afraid to ask. Grades us depending on whether or not she sees progress in our work throughout the semester. Make the effort and you will succeed!

She is a very difficult teacher and prepare for alot of assignments. You will have to do an ABC Book, lesson plans, and at least 4 or 5 extensive assignments. However, the reward at the end is fulfilling and if you are a hard worker you will definitely pass. I finished with an A.

DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS DURING THE SUMMER!!!!!!! Trust me, it is three weeks long, monday-friday 9-2pm at least 4 homework assignments due each day lesson plan due every day. ALOT of work! I am not sure how I functioned in this class! You will only get about 2 hours of sleep every night if you take this with robbins over the summer!

Very knowledgeable professor but extremely hard course. Unfortunately formatting is more important than content for lesson plans and assignments & grading is subjective even w/ a rubric. Intimidating rather than approachable-get on her two-faced good side early. Avoid the extra stress she causes & take Tsalikis or Yribarren for all reading courses.

One of the best teachers at FIU. She is passionate about teaching future teachers how to teach reading. Follow her syllabus and do EVERYTHING she tells you to do, and you'll do great. I've had her for 2 reading classes and taking my third with her in the fall.

She gives a lot of work and doesn't really explain the assignments. She makes you write a three level paper for every assignment regardless of how much work it is.

TONS of assignments/lesson plans. She gives you a week for each lesson plan which you have to write it up, teach it and then write a reflection. Its a lot to do. She talks excessively, but yet misses a lot of important details in which she takes points of for. Check all your graded work for her mistakes! and you need both books every class day

A LOT of work. I would advise you to record class. She gives a lot of details, and sometimes she didn't say what she thinks she said and then holds you accountable. Personally, I think she put too much emphasis on the "what" of what we do, and not enough on the "why". She is helpful, though, and works as hard as you do. Ask for help if you take her

Had her for RED1, & now RED2. Although RED2 is a bit more work & more difficult, she is worth taking! She teaches you a lot, & you actually learn! She allows 4 U to redo an assignment if you get a low score as long as you learn from your mistakes. I recommend her 100%. Plus, you'll most likely have her for RED4, so its good to know how she works.

Class is pretty easy if you follow directions. Take notes and start your ABC book ASAP. You learn A LOT and if you take her for the other RED's, its a lot easier because you're used to how she works. I highly recommend this professor. She knows what she's talking about, and although she's "harder" than others, it is worth it! I highly recommend!

This professor is amazing. Her class is a lot of work but you actually learn. She will be there every step of the way for you. If you ever need help you can go to her office and she will help you until you complete the whole assignment. Most helpful teacher and will accept work late.

Do not take her. Please, save yourself the trouble of having to put up with her two-faced attitude. She sugar coats everything, and tries to be nice when in reality she's evil. She is way too picky with grading, inconsistent with her scheduling, and terribly annoying. Pick a better professor.

I was dreading taking her class because of the things I had heard but I'm glad I did. Of course attendance is mandatory, you are responsible for a student. Why would anyone want to leave their student without a tutor? Do the work and ask for help when you need it. She will help. The class is difficult, so is teaching.

I was nervous about taking a class with Dr.Robbins because of some of the previous comments. But she is an AMAZING professor! By far the best I've had in the Education department so far. She's extremely helpful, crystal clear about her assignments, & best of all she makes the class interesting & fun. I recommend her to everyone! :) TAKE HER!

She is truly an amazing teacher, she is very knowledgeable of what she teaches. There is lots of work but she is very clear about what she assigns. I definately recomend her. If you do all the assignments correctly and on time you will definately get an A. I ended up with a B for turning in some assingments late.

I found Dr. Robbins' class informative and fun. Though she is fair and accomodating, her no nonsense approach to assignments made the classroom environment even. Looking forward to taking her again.
