Chalk ( visu )
5 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 629 libraries worldwide
In the comedic style of The Office and the films of Christopher Guest, Chalk is a spirited portrait of life in the trenches of that most honorable and frustrating profession, teaching. It's the start of a memorable new year at Harrison High. The self-conscious Mr. Stroope is convinced that his time has come: this year he will be furnished with the golden title of "Teacher of the Year". That is, if his smarter students will just stop using words he doesn't understand. Peek into Mr. Lowrey's History class and you'll see that he's struggling to even call himself a teacher. Woefully inept due to a complete lack of both experience and social skills, he earnestly stutters his way through class. The only interaction his students offer him is when they steal his chalk. Men aren't much interested in the spunky and officious Coach Webb, but as she says, "not all P.E. teachers are gay," and she pines for some romantic company
