Rent the movie "Chalk." It's a documentary on teaching. I watched it this morning on tv and couldn't stop laughing. Although I forewarn you that I went in to it expecting to laugh since my colleagues told me some of the things this teacher does in it, so it's not a "let's see a teacher overcome the battles of an inner city school and succeed" movie. It's a "is that teacher for real right now?" Although there's a first year teacher in there that I can relate to, as I had so many behavioral problems my first year, too.
