Great Movies

I was just thinking about some great movies that I like to show in my classroom.  My favorites are:

Stand and Deliver

October Sky

The Freedom Writers

Pursuit of Happyness

The Blind Side

Notice a theme?  They're all based on a true story.

What are your favorites?


  1. Our curriculum and schedule don't allow for movies ... but I wonder if any of my 9th graders would be interested in a "Lunch Bunch" movie week ... it would take most of the week to show any of these ... which would be fine.

    I am considering taking a few minutes one day a week to show a video clip from The Futures Channel ... a bit of real math/science in real careers (

  2. The King's Speech! Not so much about kids ... but great about overcoming!
