Rating:
PG-13
Chalk - Morgan Spurlock Presents is a 2006 mockumentary style film revolving around the lives of four teachers at Harrison High. Mr. Lowrey (Troy Schremmer) is a new history teacher who can barely lay claim to that title due to his inexperience and social awkwardness with leading a class. Mr. Stroope (Chris Mass) is in his third year of teaching and has set a goal of winning "Teacher of the Year" within his first five years of teaching. It is irrelevant that he's not that great a teacher and his students prove regularly that they are smarter than him. He believes he is bound to win the title this year. Coach Webb (Janelle Schremmer), the gym teacher, wants everyone to remember that despite the stereotype to the contrary, all female gym teachers are not gay, and she wouldn't mind a little male attention. Mrs. Reddell (Shannon Haragan) is a teacher turned first-year assistant principal struggling with the transition. Enjoy this comedic look into the sometimes frustrating world of teaching.moreless
