Evaluation Comments for Cohen R

  1. The readings provided in class are great, although most of them aren't really discussed, which is fine since the class focuses on writing, mostly. The students, at least in my class, seemed enthusiastic about writing and cared to share honest and constructive criticism with each other. They were positive. However, Cohen can come short of encouraging. We might all have liked him, but he can definitely give more positive feedback. Writing is very personal, and his guidance could cater better to the fact that writing is particular and requires students to be vulnerable. He might not be specialized in writing pedagogy, but if he offered more encouragement - even in an advanced class - it could have helped my process much more.
  2. Cohen is amazing. One of the best creative writing professors Middlebury has to offer. His lectures are moving and his comments manage to pinpoint the core of any piece. Take this class.
