I work in an inner city school This doesn t uite touch on the way inner city schools really are For instance all the kids writing is in standard English My kids when expressing how they really feel use what I call Urban English I just couldn t hear my kids in this book I related a bit to the teacher s writing But there are a lot of realities that were not portrayed in this book For instance the teacher had her own room the same room for the 4 years she taught The reality of my urban setting is uite different I have taught in about 15 different classrooms in the 3 years I ve been teaching Usually in the urban schools I know teachers move from room to room each period This deeply impacts our instruction I also hated the way the union was portrayed as protecting the seniority of teachers over the best interests of the kids Unions in schools is a very complex situation and as a union activist I feel compelled to point this out My union has done things like ensure that I get a bathroom break books in my classroom and paper for the copy machine uirkyalone A Manifesto for Uncompromising Romantics just couldn t hear my kids in this book I related a bit to the teacher s writing But there are a lot of realities that were not portrayed in this book For instance the teacher had her own room the same room for the 4 years she taught The reality of my urban setting is uite different I have taught in about 15 different classrooms in the 3 years I ve been teaching Usually in the urban schools I know teachers move from room to room each period This deeply impacts our instruction I also hated the way the union was portrayed as protecting the seniority of teachers over the best interests of the kids Unions in schools is a very complex situation and as a union activist I feel compelled to point this out My union has done things like ensure that I get a bathroom break books in my classroom and paper for the copy machine

Erin Gruwell Ë 1 READ READ ¹ The Freedom Writers Diary How a Teacher and 150 Teens Used Writing to Change Themselves and the World Around Them Zine a meeting with US Secretary of Education Richard Riley and educationally All 150 Freedom Writers have graduated from high school and are now attending collegeWith powerful entries from the students’ own diaries and a narrative text by Erin Gruwell The Freedom Writers Diary is an uplifting unforgettable example of how hard work courage and the spirit of determination changed the lives of a teacher and her students The authors’ proceeds from this book will be donated to The Tolerance Education Foundation an organization set up to pay for the Freedom Writers’ college tuition Erin Gruwell is now a visiting professor at California State University Long Beach where some of her students are Freedom Writers. An interesting but ultimately unrealistic story of a high school teacher in an urban school in CA who does amazing things with her students The unrealistic parts first the students write diary entries what I missed immediately were student s voices With one or two exceptions they could have all been written by the same student the stories were different of course fresh sad poignant brutally honest dealing with everything from molestation to drugs to violence but the sentence structure and diction had all been sanitized by too much editing I would have preferred to see their original writing Teaching voice is difficult but it can happen Each student s voice like a fingerprint is extremely uniue represented by punctuation marks word choice sentence variety In addition some of the entries become redundantI ve been teaching for 25 years now and been involved with three different schoolsunion Happily none of my unions were anything like Gruwell s There is also not a lot about how she originally caught students classroom management is not discussed but extremely important so if you are a novice teacher looking for ideas I suggest Teach Like a Champion instead Finally Gruwell left teaching after about four years If you want to stay in teaching for the long run there has to be clear boundaries between school and personal life to stay balanced and healthy Gruwell did not have that and I wonder if that is one of the reasons she left teaching
