My posse dont do homework review ways it was serious

She bullied, bluffed, and bribed her students into caring about school.

And if that didn’t work, the pretty, petite ex-marine told them she’d been trained to kill with her bare hands.

They were called the class from Hell-thirty-four inner cityMore She bullied, bluffed, and bribed her students into caring about school.

And if that didn’t work, the pretty, petite ex-marine told them she’d been trained to kill with her bare hands.

They were called the class from Hell-thirty-four inner city sophomores she inherited from a teacher who’d been “pushed over the edge.” She was told “those kids have tasted blood. They’re dangerous.”

But LouAnne Johnson had a different idea. Where the school system saw thirty-four unreachable kids, she saw young men and women with intelligence and dreams. When others gave up on them, she broke the rules to give them the best things a teacher can give-hope and belief in themselves. When statistics showed the chances were they’d never graduate, she fought to beat the odds.

This is her remarkable story-and theirs.

If you loved Stand and Deliver, you’ll stand up and cheer for LouAnne Johnson and Dangerous Minds.

I recognize that the author’s intention in writing this book was probably not to convince her readers to think to themselves, “Holy shit. I never, ever ever ever want to be a teacher. Ever. EVER. ”

Probably it was instead meant to be inspiring!

But I spent the entire time. Read full review

I decided to read this book after hearing an interview with Johnson on NPR’s This American Life.

Johnson said her teaching experience wasn’t much like Michelle Pfeiffer’s teaching experience in Dangerous Minds, the movie inspired by Johnson’s book. She also said she retur. Read full review

This book is kind of a train wreck of sorts – but here’s my review that I wrote for my M.A.T. program.

Miss Johnson is a newly hired teacher set with the task of working in a difficult inner city school. I remember going to the movie theatre in middle school and watching. Read full review

I definitely enjoyed this book, but as I read I kept thinking “teachers can’t do that now.” Giving kids a ride home – definitely a no-no these days. Also interesting was the fact that she started off just teaching one class, later two, at most four.

In the interest of full disclosure, I must admit I come from a family containing many teachers. I have five sons and thirty nieces and nephews. In other words, I have some small experience with kids, the school system, and teachers on and off campus, so to speak.

In the book Dangerous Minds by Louanne Johnson, I saw a whole new perspective on how some teachers; view us students. The scene or story, takes place at a poor lonely low rated school. One word would describe that school, and it would be potential. Ms. Johnson recognized. Read full review
