recommended reading

Frank McCourt's recently published Teacher Man is mostly set many decades ago, in the NY area, and he teaches writing to high school students mainly. Thus, although he won a Pulitzer previously, I almost didn't get the book because I didn't think this memoir would hit home much to my experience teaching LRW today. I was wrong; it is a great read with inspiring insights for all teachers (and makes one realize the universality of the process from law school to grade school, the fundamentals are the same). It's a "memoir" (Oprah beware).
