TCP: The Freedom Writers

One of my well-loved movie with Hilary Swank on the lead is The Freedom Writers.. This is such a good movie ideal for novice teacher...

Here's the synopsis of the movie...

Fresh-faced, idealistic twenty-three-year-old Erin Gruwell
(Hilary Swank) is ready to take on the world as she steps inside Wilson High School for her first day of teaching. Her class, a diverse group of racially charged teenagers from different walks of life - African Americans, Latinos, Asians, juvenile delinquents, gang members, and underprivileged students from poor neighborhoods - hope for nothing more than to make it through the day. On the surface, the only thing they share is their hatred for each other and the understanding that they are simply being warehoused in the educational system until they are old enough to disappear. Despite her students' obstinate refusal to participate during class, Erin tries various means to engage them on a daily basis. Click here for more
