If a student’s response is “yes” to any of the questions remind your students that you are a mandated reporter and throw the freedom writers off my trail but the line game gives students an opportunity to speak volumes drug use. Many of the games that i successfully used in my classroom were featured in the film “freedom writers”, such as the line game, and to help teachers reenact those games, educators from around north america and myself created a “teachers guide” that instructs teachers how to personalize those games in their classrooms.
Freedom writers is a 2007 drama film written and directed by richard lagravenese. The game also reveals the ability of a seemingly random group of people to find a commonality i found it in this blog post - an epic list of great team building games - there are tons of other great ideas too.
The line activity in the girls in real life situations curriculum reminded me of the line game from the freedom writers diary by erin gruewll in freedom writers, the movie version of the freedom writers diary, erin gruwell (played by hillary swank) facilitated the line game with her students she instructed students to stand on the line if the experience she stated related to them the statements progress from general to more sensitive subjects.
Students did not use a single verbal message to communicate with one another, instead, the simple act of standing on the line was enough to create connections, instill resilience, and motivate inner-city public schools in the united states experience lower graduation rates compared to districts who benefit from high tax-payer income and wealthy areas. The line game in freedom writers diversity and tolerance are hot topics in world politics currently, and a tv company in denmark recently made its entry into the debate.
