Project Peace





I'd like to compile a list of movies about teaching. What's your favorite one? List one and why it really is good..... even better if you can post a clip!  Here is a nice list to get us started!

Here's my nominee, Dead Poet's Society. I guess cause I'm male but I really love the way Robin William's character confronts authority and gets his students to see outside the box.

Also see our Philosophy At The Movies quiz.  Match the film with a teaching philosophy. Can you?

I just finished watching this movie Starting Out In The Evening, about a graduate student who is doing her thesis on an aging and forgotten writer. Interesting and well done - not full of tension but strong characters and issues. Two thumbs up. 


I just watched this movie on a lazy afternoon - The First Grader.  Quite inspiring and well done but in a Disney sort of way.   


Missed this one - Academy Award winner 1969 - The Prime of Miss Jane Brodie. Quite the classic. 


Life of a king. I think for high school and up maybe middle school too.

Just found out about this movie: Detachment.  From a few years back and with good reviews. Might be worth a watch? 

Watched this movie and highly recommend. Inspiring to start a school year! Brooklyn Castle.
