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
Dangerous Minds (1995) is an American drama film based on the autobiography My Posse Don't Do Homework by former U.S. Marine LouAnne Johnson, who took up a teaching position at Carlmont High School in Belmont, California, where most of her students were African-American and Hispanic teenagers from East Palo Alto, a then-unincorporated town at the opposite end of the school district.
"Dangerous Minds" movie still, 1995. Michelle Pfeiffer as LouAnne Johnson.
