THE FREEDOM WRITERS' DIARY TEACHERS' GUIDE

Designed for educators by the teacher who nurtured and created the Freedom Writers, this standards-based teachers' guide includes innovative teaching techniques that will engage, empower, and enlighten.
In response to thousands of letters and e-mails from teachers across the country who learned about Erin Gruwell and her amazing students in "The Freedom Writers Diary, " Erin Gruwell and a team of teacher experts have written "The Freedom Writers Diary Teacher's Guide," a book that will encourage teachers and students to expand the walls of their classrooms and think outside the box.
Here Gruwell goes in-depth and shares her unconventional but highly successful educational strategies and techniques (all 150 of her students who had been deemed "un-teachable" graduated from Wilson High School): from her very successful "toast for change" (an exercise in which Gruwell exhorted her students to leave the past behind and start fresh) to writing exercises that focus on the importance of journal writing, vocabulary, and more.
In an easy-to-use format with black-and-white illustrations, this teachers' guide will become the essential go-to manual for teachers who want to make a difference in their pupils' lives and create students who will make a difference.

My opinion on the Freedom Writers book is that it is a very heart warming book that makes you really appreciate your life. These students that came from the “projects” also as we know it as the “hood” have had such a terrible and hard life, Mrs. Gruwell who came to Wilson High School to bring a change had a class full of Latinos, African Americans, and one White boy. The culture in this book is ranged from Porto Rican all down to Jews, and Jamaicans. The cultural context of this book, is really laid back in the kids personal journals, and they even get the teacher to loosen up and speak with some "swag." Mrs. Gruwell also introduces her junior class to the Holocaust which brought her class a lot about culture and how hard life is for everyone and their struggle is everywhere, all her students took it to heart and learned how to grow from the Holocaust and get stronger on improving their individual lives. They even raised money to go visit the Holocaust museum and experience some of the struggles people from all over went through. This truly is a amazing book and i do recommend this book for everyone that wants to put in someone else's shoes. Great book, you really get a feel and emotional attachment for each student, in their journals. The cultural experience you get from each of these students backgrounds is truly life changing.
