Here's an award-winning documentary that chronicles "what it takes to survive the first year teaching in America's toughest schools." The film by Davis Guggenheim follows four young Los Angeles teachers as they experience "the thrill and heartache" associated with building a professional career in an often dysfunctional working environment. The 35-minute film, which is being used as a recruitment tool, a professional development resource, and a discussion-starter for policy reforms that support novice educators, can be viewed online at this webpage -- for free.
