Overview: Straight from the front line of urban America, the inspiring story of one fiercely determined teacher and her remarkable students. 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. So she and her students, using the treasured books Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl and Zlata's Diary: A Child's Life in Sarajevo as their guides, undertook a life-changing, eye-opening, spirit-raising odyssey against intolerance and misunderstanding. They learned to see the parallels in these books to their own lives, recording their thoughts and feelings in diaries and dubbing themselves the "Freedom Writers" in homage to the civil rights activists "The Freedom Riders." With funds raised by a "Read-a-thon for Tolerance," they arranged for Miep Gies, the courageous Dutch woman who sheltered the Frank family, to visit them in California, where she declared that Erin Gruwell's students were "the real heroes." Their efforts have paid off spectacularly, both in terms of recognition - appearances on "Prime Time Live" and "All Things Considered," coverage in People magazine, a meeting with US Secretary of Education Richard Riley - and educationally. All 150 Freedom Writers have graduated from high school and are now attending college. With 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.… (lisätietoja)

Erin Gruwell, The Freedom Writers, and this book are an inspiration to all who encounter them.

At the age of 23, a young and inexperienced teacher set her sites on making a difference by giving her students hope, teaching them unforgettable lessons in tolerance, and seeing them through to their graduation from high school four years later, and beyond.

Even after reading it a second time, I was brought to tears. As a teacher, I’m an moved by Ms. G’s methods and success, and each time I share this book with my students, I witness their emotional response to a truly impactful book. I highly recommend this book to every student, every parent, and every teacher. It is truly inspiring. Together we can make a difference and be the change we wish to see in the world. ( )

A gripping book on a class that learns to turn the tide of racism and violence! Through diary entries, you get to know the Freedom Writers, the struggle they faced and the message they spread. I found myself at the verge of tears more than once, at the injustice these kids grew up in.
Even though not all entries are literary masterpieces (keep in mind that these are high school kids), their stories are so gripping that this book is sure to leave an impression. ( )

This book is based on a true story about a young teacher named Erin Gruwell who begins teaching at a title one school. She wants to make a difference in her students but she does not know what they are actually going through. When she starts connecting with each and everyone of them the classroom dynamic changes making their relationship one of a kind. This book is legendary, its a great way to connect a classroom and create a positive atmosphere. This book can be used in any concept, I believe that you may know your concept front and back but if you do not make a connection with the students then they will not learn. ( )

There's something truly great about giving a voice to the voiceless. I think this is Ellen Gruwell's gift more than anything else. This book is the diary of the diverse kids in a class room who learned to listen to each other and encourage each other when very few others would. An integration program in LA brought at risk inner city kids into a school where they were possibly more doomed to fail than before. Their teacher taught them that they had more in common with each other than they knew, but also that there were characters in books that had some of the same problems that they did. Sometimes finding your own voice starts with listening to someone else. ( )
