ENGL 3420 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Professor Cohen makes every lecture funny, engaging, and clear. Every class, I found myself thinking about the texts in new ways. You'll have to work hard to get a good grade, but he makes it worth it. HIGHLY recommended!

ENGL 1330W Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

Cohen is entertaining and funny, but really adds a lot to the readings. He makes you consider things you may have missed otherwise. Papers are short and simple, but grading depends mostly on your TA.

Prof. Cohen is amazing! Even if you don't have any interest in medieval literature, his lectures are so engaging that you'll just want to hear him talk. Having said that, he expects a 100% from his students. So, make sure to read the texts and participate in class and you'll be golden!

ENGL1330W Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Professor Cohen is great. I took Myths of Britain this past semester (Spring 2014) and thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm not an English major, but I had no problems keeping up and feel as if I really benefited from taking this course. He's teaching a larger version of this class in the fall with Professor Ayanna Thompson. I highly recommend taking it.

Professor Cohen is by far the most helpful, intriguing, and passionate professor I have had during my time at GW. I highly recommend this class, and any class with Professor Cohen. He is truly magnificent.

Awesome professor and awesome class! Didn't expect to be all that invested in British Myths but Cohen makes you love his subject. Not too difficult but not a walk in the park either - absolutely recommend it. Taking him again next semester.

On the one hand, demanding: standards were high. On the other, hilarious. Have never had a prof with such a sense of humor. He cracked us all up (and himself too) just through the drawings he made to illustrate his points on the whiteboard. He really cares about students, and about the literature he teaches. Best class at GW so far.

ENG3410 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Professor Cohen was very nice and was very invested in his class. He was an amazing lecturer and was always extremely passionate about the course. The assignments were a bit tough, but learning Middle English and understanding Chaucer was actually fun because of his teaching style.

Cohen is an extremely knowledgeable professor and his Chaucer class is absolutely interesting. Attending class is a must, but his class is entertaining so why not go. You need to do the hw especially at the beginning of the semester. It's a fairly challenging course but you'll come out a Chaucerian expert.
