Watch the Movie and Writer a Reflection You will watch one of the following films and write a 1-2 page reflection on it.
The reflection should bring in concepts we have discussed in class, as well
as new ideas raised by the film.
– The Namesake
– Monsoon Wedding
– Mississippi Masala
– East Meets West In the early 1990s, a young schoolteacher named Erin Gruwell made a radical change in her curriculum. Frustrated by her efforts to inspire her low-achieving students, she handed out journals and asked the kids to write about their own lives. Their poignant personal essays were later published in The Freedom Writers Diary, a book that inspired the 2007 film Freedom Writers.
