Yes, I'm Making Them into Nerds!!!

Every year I read my students "We Beat the Streets."  It is about three young men who are from the projects in Newark, New Jersey who grow up to become doctors.  They make a pact and stick to it.  I got to meet them several years ago when they were in Louisville on a book tour.  I just found out they have a documentary!  I will be watching the full documentary this weekend.  I'm going to show it to my students during lunch over the next week.  I'll turn them into documentary lovers!  (They watch a few more at the end of the year.)

On a note of personal interest, I plan on going to see this documentary:
