Freedom Writers- Changes of Ms. Gruwell and Maria Reyes (Eva)
The first change that Eva goes through is discovering other people in her class have experienced what she has gone through, like loosing her friends and family members. She stops being so rude to her other classmates and begins to open her eyes and see that they are all alike.
The second change is
when she decides that
her classes are more
important to her than
anything else.
The second change Eva goes through is showing respect. At first she would talk back to Ms. Gruwell, leave the class without permission, question her teaching skills and laugh at her ways of trying to connect with the students. After she realized what she was doing, she started to accept Ms. Gruwell and find out that she is just there to help.
The third and final change is when she decides
that she has to take responsibility for her
classes (making sure she can teach them for junior and senior years) so that they can have better futures.
