I have used this video and resource for several years in my own classroom with high success. From introducing the author before reading his book, "Bad Boy: A Memoir," to showing this at the end of the book as a refresher. Those that have read his memoir know that he talks in detail about so much that is mentioned in the video. This is a great review!
When printing resources, I would encourage you not to print the cover sheet to save on ink. :)
