The Freedom Writers Diary is a collection of journal entries from students who were influenced by their teacher named Erin Gruwell. In the beginning the students had no respect for her and these journal entries showed how each of them really felt. As the entries progress the student’s attitudes change and they begin to have hope. This book shows just how much one person can impact many. These students wanted to learn and succeed all because one teacher took the time to care. I would recommend this book to all young adult readers. It is a great and inspiring book that can give people hope that may not have any. ( )

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.
