Never assume anything in my class!

The movie Paper Chase (1973) is a classic academic movie (it’s also a love story).  At university, you encounter all sorts of professors; kind ones and curmudgeons, those who hold your hand while you take intellectual leaps, and those who push you off the cliff.  Kingsfield is definitely not one of the warm-fuzzy types.  However, he pushes his students to perform at their best and those who rise to the challenge are rewarded for their hard work by the academic achievements they accomplish and the skills and dispositions they acquire.

This is a also a wonderful clip to watch before the beginning of a new semester.

Loudly Mr. Hart!  Fill this room with your intelligence.
