Dangerous Minds (1995): My Educational Psychology instructor at UNCW had our class watch several "teacher" movies and analyze the pedagogy evidenced in the film. (Yes, we had to write a paper on it!) This was a class favorite, along with Stand and Deliver (1988), and Lean on Me (1989). Freedom Writers (2007) would be a great addition to the exceptional-educator example canon! ~M
