Operation YesBook - 2009
It's just a rectangle of tape on a plain linoleum floor. Four feet wide, three feet deep, at the front of a sixth-grade classroom on an Air Force base in North Carolina. But when Ms. Loupe steps into the space, it becomes a putting green. A prison cell. A stage. And she teaches her students how to make that magic "theatre " happen as well. Bo loves the improvisation exercises: They focus his restless energies and distract him from his father's impending deployment. But Gari has more important things to worry about -- like getting hermom home safe from Iraq. When Ms. Loupe's brother goes missing in Afghanistan and Ms. Loupe herself breaks down, Gari, Bo, and the rest of the class have to improvise their way through their own "great battles" -- and find a way to help their teacher fight hers.Operation Yes is a poignant, funny, and generous book about an amazing teacher and the students she inspires.
