Freedom Writers Collaborative Poster and Writing Activity



This Freedom Writers Diary collaborative poster is perfect for a book study or for viewing the movie. The captivating story, written by Erin Gruwell, is about a teacher in racially divided high school. She breaks through to her students by helping them find their voice and a common ground. The story is so powerful. Many students and teachers shed tears while reading the book or watching the film! Erin Gruwell reads The Diary of Anne Frank to teach and promote tolerance, survival, and acceptance. Her students discover new meanings and feelings about life, education, love, and community.

You will only need to print this one time per class! That’s it.The Freedom Writers collaboration poster project is a perfect size to laminate. The finished poster is 3.3 feet tall by 2.6 feet wide. – Comes with a bonus row for more students.

Great for an end of the year classroom management tool, too! Builds classroom community. You’ll love watching your students collaborate. The activity is designed for students to have fun, communicate and work together. The writing activity is truly insightful and reflective. I love seeing the personal touches made to each poster piece.

Autism awareness poster includes:
★ Explicit and complete directions from start to finish – writing, reflection, coloring, and assembling.
★ An optional row of pieces in the event you have more students – Over 25? No problem!
★ A writing activity that includes two prompts. Both writing prompts are appropriate for a book study or film study.
★ I include a coloring guide for each poster piece. Your students will know what colors to use.

Recommended supplies needed: crayons, colored pencils, scissors, tape or stapler
