Despite the intensity of his class, and the workload required for it, it was extremely rewarding to study under Marshall. He re-invigorated my love for history. I got a d+ first term, and by the end a 5 on the ap.

Not only knows his subject but understands it and puts life into it. Hilariously quirky and opinionated, never minces words so hjis classes are always entertaining.

Marshall Cohen is a horribly pompous teacher whose self-proclaimed purpose is to create a situation in which pupils who have previously done well in history, will now struggle

Cohen is a nice guy--a little whacky but in a good way. Interesting lessons- except for the ones I kinda fell asleep in.

He's difficult, but still a great teacher. I didnt do well in his class because i'm a slacker. It's not his fault at all. He's very fair and decent to students
