The teacher who will be covering our "Media/Lit" class next year has proposed using 
"In Cold 
Blood"  to our curriculum director. The Curriculum Director has asked me if I felt 
it was 
appropriate for a senior only class.

I do not have any first hand experince with either the book or the movie as I have 
not read it 
nor have I seen the movie. (sheltered life?) :-)

My question concerns both the movie (1967) version, as well as the book, "In cold 
blood" by 
Truman Capote:

Does anyone have experience teaching/using "In cold bood" at their school?
Professional  opinions and comments welcome as well, even if you haven't seen the 
title used, 
but think that this may or may not be appropriate for use in class.

Thanks for your time,
