AP Lit is useless. Just copy the book. Grades more on punctuality than substance. I regret taking AP Lit, big mistake

Atbsolutely love her. One of the nicest and most entertaining teachers I've ever had. I've graduated from high school since and I still maintain a very closer relationship with her. Highly recommend for AP Lit.

me and cowan never agreed on anything, she was really mean and never gives a straight answer to anything. if you ask her whats wrong with one of your papers she will just say everything.

She's one of those teachers that would be cool to hang out with outside the class. But being in her classroom, expect to do a lot of work, sometimes excessive and pointless.

One of the worst teachers I had at Ward Melville. Always late for class and assigned way too many books for us to read, but then didn't go over anything with us or even test us on the material

Mrs. Cowan is an OK teacher, but an awesome person. She may be really opinionated, but she's really funny. If you hate tests, shes for you. I haven't had one test all year so far.

Many interesting views on literature, and teaches close reading very well, but I've found that if one doesn't AGREE with her views on the text she will be cruel to prove her point

It's so clear that she wanted to be popular when she was in high school, so now she only tries to get the popular kids to like her. she's mean to everyone else.
