I really appreciate Mr. Cobbett's high standards and the quality of education he delivers. Really! In American History, I felt useful and successful while working hard to get good grades, whereas in other classes, you don't have to work as much (or at a higher level) to earn good grades. It seemed like a fair, well structured challenge, and a greater quality of work was instilled in me. If you work hard, he'll like you and you won't think he's a meanie :)
COBBETT RULES. Do your work, ask him how to improve it, and be a good kid. He won't just throw out the 90s (or even the 80s), but if you legitimately work with him to improve yourself you will be golden. Sit back and enjoy the class!
He is the best teacher I have ever had. Although he is tough, it was his style of teaching that has prepared me for university. I found that the lazy and unmotivated kids were the only one's who seemed to have issues with him. I found him very smart and funny, but mostly very passionate about what h
overall pretty good teacher he has high standards but I guess he just wants the best for us. he is funny pretty nice and he is very passionate about what he teaches.
worst teacher i have ever had. no lie. the guy almost failed me, and sure im not the best student, but he definatly is not a good teacher. He picks favorites and does not help you when you need it. He doesnt encourage his students, he says rude things about them. I am never taking this course again,
Mr. Cobbett is a great teacher with very high standards. It is the lazy, unmotivated studnets that seem to not like him. He prepared me very well for university. His energy, enthusiasm, sarcasim and love for history made his class a blast!!!
I won't deny that he picks favourites, but this has yet to affect his marking as his favourites tend to have some of the lowest grades in his class. Great teacher.
Picks favourites and holds stuff against you because of your siblings. Not willing to help.
he was easy to get along with, helped when you needed it, and funny at times. he was a good teacher
Cobbett is definately my favourite male teacher! He's incredibly funny, although sometimes his jokes go a little too far.
Expects a lot, and picks favourites, that's for sure, but also a fun and interesting person to joke around with. Is honest, real, straight-up and reasonable w/students, which is a rare quality imo.
Unreasonably tough marker, blatent favouritist, and he is the only teacher I've ever had who actually didn't seem like they would be a nice person outside of school.
Mr. Cobbett was my favourite teacher last year! He's incredibly smart, and is willing to help as long as you ask for it. He's a tough marker but not too tough.. I got over 85% so he's not THAT bad
He prepared me for Uni-the marks I got in his classes are reflective of what I have here. Although he did pick on me a lot-twas all in good fun! And well, I usually started it!
I respect have the highest respect for Mr. Cobbett, even though he is a hard marker. =P He always put up with me having food in class every day.
Mr. Cobbett was the hardest marker i'vever had. but once you get over that, you can learn A LOT from him.he really knows what he's talking about. I have a lot of respect for him.
He picked on me a lot...but hey, I slept. I think he argues with some people too much & it takes away from others learning. Hard marker.
hard, but..fair. i also enjoyed his sarcastic ways and ability to understand his students. truly helped prepare students for univeristy level tasks.
I felt that Mr. Cobbett picked favourites among his students and I found that he often very unclear.
mr. cobbett doesn't seem to have much interest in some students. His expectations are not clearly outlined, making it tought to do well
Noooo!!! Are you guys kidding me?? This guy should not be a teacher. Worst teacher I EVER had at North. Enough said.
I didn't think he marked that hard. Awesome guy, wish more teachers were like him. His favourites are those that can joke around with him, but respect him.
I had many classes with Mr.C. and I think he balances seriousness with fun very effectively. He is a sincere and straight-up person.
Very hard marker and has his favourites. Makes jokes and gives plenty of opportunities for students to get extra marks. Good teacher overall.
Mr. Cobbett is an awesome teacher! He's not afraid to joke around. He is a hard marker, but he makes you strive to do better!
mr. cobbett was the best teacher i have ever had and i'll never forget him. i don't know if he knows it but he did influence my life and i'm greatful for that.
