Teacher: Mrs. Irvine
Mrs. Irvine's Secondary ELA, Writing for Adolescents, class is a great educational experience. Her teaching methods do a few things very well. First, her class is well organized. All of the lessons have the right amount of content and learning activities in them to help you learn the specific subject being taught. Second, the learning activities help are practical, usable, real life activities that students like me can use in the real world. Lastly, she has students put into practice what she is teaching and what they are learning, so they get real “hands on” experience with the subject matter being taught. After each lesson, students feel like they are “users” instead of just “observers” of the material being taught. Her class is excellent and I would recommend it to anyone.
