Had Mr. Cook for Shakespeare back in 1994 or thereabouts. He was the best introduction to the subject. Having grow up now, and traveled to the birthplace of Shakespeare, my appreciation for the lessons learned and the deeper understanding of old English was invaluable. He also wrote me a glowing recommendation to USC. So for those of you that are negative about him - probably because you were not paying attention in his class.

This guy should be anything except a teacher. He verbally abuses students, chooses clear favorites, and forces students to cheat on exams because he doesn't really teach the material-- he expects you to magically learn it on your own. Oh yeah, and he should never put his hands on students. Punching students, flipping over desks is just outrageous.

The best teacher ever. I learned more grammar and writing skills in Latin than in any other English class ever. Mr. Cook is very fair and honest. Sometimes he calls you out on things you do wrong, but you'll thank him for it later.

Mr. cook is a great teacher. I learned a lot of things in his Latin that helped me to become a better student. I wouldn't suggest taking this course if you don't have tough skin, he can be very rude at times. Although it is all in good humor, sometimes it really hurts.

I took it as a senior just to slack. I would suggest everyone take him for at least a year. He is what all teachers should be, friendly, funny, and knowledgable. Just know that the more he hits you, the more he likes you.

Mr. Cook is completely honest about his ciriculum, and very funny. The class if great if you actually want to learn Latin or if you just want to experience Mr. Cook as a teacher. He's a most munificent man.

I learned more taking 3 weeks of Latin than I did taking... elementary and middle school (and getting an A in English every year) last year. You learn a lot- and if you don't- Cook's hilarious. Latin's my favorite class.
