The Freedom Writers Diary
How A Teacher and 150 Teens Used Writing to Change Themselves and the World Around ThemBook - 2006
As an idealistic twenty-three-year-old English teacher at Wilson High School in Long Beach, California. Erin Gruwell confronted a room of "unteachable, at-risk" students. One day she intercepted a note with an ugly racial caricature, and angrily declared that this was precisely the sort of thing that led to the Holocaust - only to be met by uncomprehending looks ... With powerful entries from the students' own diaries and a narrative text by [her, this book] is an uplifting, unforgettable example of how hard work, courage, and the spirit of determination changed the lives of a teacher and her students.-Back cover.
