Teacher Man: A Memoir: Frank McCourt: 9780743243773: Amazon.com: Books
From paperback swap description: "Now, here at last, is McCourt's long-awaited book about how his thirty-year teaching career shaped his second act as a writer. Teacher Man is also an urgent tribute to teachers everywhere. In bold and spirited prose featuring his irreverent wit and heartbreaking honesty, McCourt records the trials, triumphs and surprises he faces in public high schools around New York City. His methods anything but conventional, McCourt creates a lasting impact on his students through imaginative assignments (he instructs one class to write "An Excuse Note from Adam or Eve to God"), singalongs (featuring recipe ingredients as lyrics), and field trips (imagine taking twenty-nine rowdy girls to a movie in Times Square!)." I enjoyed this book as much as the other books written by McCourt. Another MUST read. He is witty and funny! This is a book I read in korea right before applying to teachers college. Definitely worth reading.

Tis: A Memoir by Frank McCourt -- this is the sequel to Angela's Ashes. McCourt moved back to New York from Ireland, and this is the story of that part of his life.
Tis: A Memoir by Frank McCourt “It is only the best storyteller who can so beguile his readers that he leaves them wanting more when he is done...and McCourt proves himself one of the very best.” Frank McCourt's ’Tis is one of the most eagerly awaited books of our time, and it is a masterpiece.
Same author as Angela's Ashes, all time favorite book, so humbling!
'Tis- not a book club pic but the sequel to Angela's Ashes and very good also.

My favourite book - it was life-changing. Anyone who thinks they are poor needs to read this book.
Angela's Ashes "When I look back on my childhood I wonder how I managed to survive at all. It was, of course, a miserable childhood: the happy childhood is hardly worth your while. Worse than the ordinary miserable childhood is the miserable Irish childhood, and worse yet is the miserable Irish Catholic childhood." So begins the luminous memoir of Frank McCourt
Irish. Angela's Ashes. sad, funny, bittersweet memoir of growing up in New York in the 30s and in Ireland in the 40s. It is a story of extreme hardship and suffering, in Brooklyn tenements and Limerick slums -- too many children, too little money, his mother Angela barely coping as his father Malachy's drinking bouts constantly brings the family to the brink of disaster.
a memoir well written and worth reading

good book and great movie
"You is kind, You is smart, You is important" FAVORITE MOVIE LINE OF ALL TIME! Movie: The Help (2011) starring Emma Stone, Viola Davis, and Octavia Spencer
"The Help" (2011) An aspiring author during the civil rights movement of the 1960s decides to write a book detailing the African-American maids' point of view on the white families for which they work for. Honestly I almost didn't watch this film because I thought it was gonna be another typical racist movie where all white people are evil etc etc. (Let it Go already !) Honestly I was pleasantly surprised with this film and I absolutely LOVED it ! Great movie !!
Book worth reading and movie worth seeing! Let our boys watch it too as a lesson in civil rights history
The Help (2011). Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, Emma Stone, Jessica Chastain. There were a few things that deviated from the book, but this was still a great movie.
