(F HicH) Carrying Albert Home: The Somewhat True Story of a Man, His Wife, and her Alligator by Homer Hickam | October 2015


Rocket Boys, the memoir of West Virginian Homer Hickam, Jr. This book inspired the film October Sky.

Coalwood School in Coalwood, West Virginia. Homer Hickam's hometown. I've actually been here once before with my family, but I really want to go again. Watch the movie October Sky if you're confused. :)

October Sky (1999)

This film has a lot of great discussion starters: inequalities, social status, social inequalities, the point of school, jobs, and learning. It is somewhat long and a good lesson plan is needed to make showing this movie beneficial, but it can be done and would be very useful. -Ben Wynn
