Question by di99: Do you know of a documentary I can show my privileged students about what life is really like for a city kid?
After reading two books by S.E. Hinton, The Outsiders and That Was Then, This Is Now, I would like to show my 8th grade students a documentary about what life is really like for a kid growing up in the city surrounded by gangs, drugs and violence. Does anyone know of any good ones that do not have bad words in them?
