Dear Lm-Netters,
My school district's main staff development initiative, and the program on
which we are hanging our student achievement, is the implementation of the
research of Robert Marzano, et. al. that is discussed in his  "Classroom
Instruction That Works: Research-Based Strategies for Increasing Student
Achievement." One of the strategies deals with "recognizing effort and
providing feedback." Part of this strategy is showing instances when
extraordinary effort has resulted in increased achievement, and and lists
the movies, "Rudy" and "Hoosiers,"  and some of the selections in the
"Chicken Soup for the Soul" books as examples.  I am asking your collective
wisdom for additional titles--fiction and nonfiction--that would fit this

Thanks for your help!
