A simple question to think about for class this week: What can we learn about teaching “methods” from the Freedom Writers? Do check out this live link to the Freedom Writers Foundation.
Facilitators, please do post on the second half of the book! What connections do you see among any of the last two weeks’ readings and the lived experiences of actual students and their teacher in the Gruwell memoir?
Too, last week I introduced the “unit plan” assignment and asked you to consider the possibilities. I had expected to see some musings on the blog. Classmates and I are eager to respond. Please do post on the possible essential question (s) you are considering pursuing for your lesson planning assignment. KES
