"Better Like Group Projects"

Possibly one of the worst teachers to ever walk the planet, honestly don't know how she passed college, because she is incapable of simply working a computer. if you are not one of her favorites in the class than good luck because she will be obviously rude to you. S

"Tests are tough" "Tests? Not many" "Better Like Group Projects"

Terrible teacher who is very unclear with course material. Worst professor I've had all semester. Will play favorites with students, and she is rude to international students. She is often vulgar to the internationals as well.

Miriam is a very sweet lady. She is very nice and entertaining, but she isn't always clear on what she is expecting. Overall, her class was an easy A, so why not take her? In fact, I am again this semester.

CAS 100A Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

this woman is off her rocker. i got an A in the class but it was so nerve racking. there are 6 speeches, no tests, and a couple quizzes that really mean nothing for your grade. as long as you basically memorize your speech and listen to what she says, but most don't, then you'll get an A with no problems

If you want to know what class with her is like, just sit in a second grade class in a Catholic school.

She complains about how everyone is somehow distracting the speaker but honestly, her tapping and wild movements make HER the distraction. Confuses assignments between sections, and loses your grades and holds YOU accountable. If that doesn't convince you to stay away, I don't know what will.

It was just a seminar class- which was easy enough. She can be somewhat disorganized and forgetful. She is still a really nice woman though.

Take the summer session - a lot less speeches and no tests, 1 quiz. She is off the wall to say the least, doesn't make much sense. According to her my speeches improved, but my grade didn't? Like others said, has favorites and grades according, still an easy B+ or A

She's crazy. She had favorites and graded accordingly. She was unclear on all of the assignments, and when she was, she'd yell because she didn't want it the way she said. Her grading was erratic at best and she was late every class. It wasn't hard, but a huge pain.

She is a nun and acts pretty much as a nun would, somewhat strict, tests aren't too bad and is somewhat disorganized, she is often talking about other stuff than what we are doing in class which leads to the reason why at 8 weeks into class we have had only one test, the reading is extremely dry but if you pay attention you can do decent.

I don't understand all the bad remarks? She is a great teacher. The only grades in the class are 6 speeches, no exams and meaningless quizzes that have no effect on your grade. Most of the time you just go to class and listen to the speeches. Very little work needed to get an A in this class.

she is the most boring professor i have ever had.. never stays on subject.. always finds a way to talk about anything else other than what we are supposed to be accomplishing in class or if shes not doing that shes finding a way to embarass you infront of everyone. in my opinion, shes a ****.

Awesome class.... really brings people together and the class is fun... not that challenging.. really helps you out with public speaking. I highly recommend this class. Get along with her and you'll get a good grade.

She's nice but very disorganized and misplaces homework and papers. She also doesnt communicate well and seems to have no idea what she wants from the students.
