I don't have this teacher, so I'm basing my judgment on the comments of other students (and perhaps I shouldn't), but it seems to me that talking about politics and disrespecting the Vice President of the United States--if these allegations are true--has no place in a public school. It's not professional, and it's not fair to students with different opinions who become reluctant to voice them for fear of alienating or angering the teacher. Politics have no place in a public school, period.
wowoooowww he is suchhhh an easy teacheerrr. So much funnnnn! he gave me a 100 average
wow i love talking about politics with this guy. how can u not like a guy that disses al gore on a regular basis?
Cocchiarelli is the worst teacher to get because he can really hurt you emotionally. He can make you feel inferior. It would help if you are indifferent.
If he cals himself a hero onemoretime,i'm gona puke!He can't even teach!Notice how he demands u to shut up when he's talking but interrupts you when yr reading?
Definitely picks favorites, TLA people. Not very clear, makes great observations. Knows when your AP English essay is bad. Not great preparation for the AP.
He's a brilliant man, I'll give him that. All the books he mentions in passing is evidence. He's more on lecture than teaching which is good college prep.
I learned so much in his class...he may work you, but in the end its really worth it
I cant stand him. Terrible teacher with a superiority complex and serious issues.
He's my favorite English teacher ever! Very passionate and knowledgeable about Greek mythology. If you want to learn and not sleep in class, you'll like him!
I don't know why everyone keeps saying he's horrible. I think he's a great teacher that doesn't want too much from u.
He can be mean and rough, but the fact is- he is a great teacher
You gotta admit though, the man loves to teach, especially film, he has such a passion for it that it's hard not to appriciate him.
If he likes you you are straight,Gave me grades I didnt earn.But at the very least he is entertaining. Very rue about the spitting though and the ramdom grades
I LOVE THIS MAN. HE IS A TEACHER THAT I WILL DEFINITELY MISS WHEN IM GONE. COCHIARELLI IS ONE OF THE BEST AT WHAT HE DOES.
of course he's hard. for all those ppl who dislike him: don't sign up for those hard classes like honors eng or ap eng. he's briliant.
WARNING! DO NOT SIT IN TEH FRONT ROW! you will be spit on!
he doesnt always speak in away that people can understand what he means and he thinks that we will just know. He can be nice once in a while, but for the most part he's too hard and critical on people.
didn't learn a thing the entire year i had him, he thinks he's too smart for everyone
I LOVE COCH! HES THE BEST- COOLEST LOVLIEST SMARTEST!
94on test, 5on essay, 100on all quizes, class participation; final grade = 85!
forget about learning; just do what he says and pretend you respect him
he is an okay teacher but spits when you are in the front row. BEWARE!
he doesn't understand things himself. he's teaching a book that he hasn't read
sobsob cry.. i did good in his class but let's face it.. he makes me wanna cry
He believes he explans things but he doesn't even come close.
very smart, would make a good college professor, was hard for high school though
If i hade a penny for everytime he overworked himself then i would have a dollar
If you sit in in the front you will be showered by spit!
Its True if he likes you you;re set, I was a favorite, so sue me.
he is a great and very knowledgable man, I loved him
i dunno how i survived his class! still gives me goosebumps...scary...
He is great. but a very hectic. he throws a lot at you and can be hard to keep u
it took me full three terms to figure out what's going on in the class.
