Erin Gruwell Has Made It To Kosovo.

In order to help my students add their hearts into their SAT-prep essays, I decided to bring in my old friend, the Freedom Writers movie, based on this book.

It was a hit, and my students' essays are now filled with emotion, drama, and heart.
And after the film and the revision instruction, 3 of my "reluctant readers" asked me where they could get a copy of the book to read.
