  1. 1.) Why should people learn tolerance? How did students in the Freedom Writers learn tolerance? to be able to socialize with other students and people. They socialized with other students outside of their click.
    2. ) Bully like behaviors are seen all around us; even when students don't belong to a gang. Describe an instance where students were bullied in the clip. In the class room when they argued and hurtfull/racist/prejudice things were said.
    3.) Are people from different classes unteachable or just misunderstood? Explain.
    i think they are misunderstood. People will give up on others just because of the way they look. If someone looks poor or gang like, people will say oh they dont care or dont bother they cant learn. When really they can, just no one takes the time to reach them on their level.

  5. 1.) Why should people learn tolerance? How did students in the Freedom Writers learn tolerance?
    So that everyone can get along with others even if you don't like them very much, you will still be able to "tolerate" them. They learned by being taught & hearing about other people's situations.

    2. ) Bully like behaviors are seen all around us; even when students don't belong to a gang. Describe an instance where students were bullied in the clip.
    The african american was being bullied by another guy. He drew a picture of him with big lips. & everyone thought it was funny.

    3.) Are people from different classes unteachable or just misunderstood? Explain.
    Misunderstood, because people don't understand what other people are going through unless they experience themselves. People usually judge people off their looks and never really try to understand them, but they can be taught.

    A. If people learned tolerance it was decrease the hate between people which ould decrease fights and killing
    B. The teacher though up in their face the truth of what happens when they get consume y hate.

    A. The instance where where the studenst were bulled is when the teacher started making fun of them like when she said black people and their fat lips.
    3.) Are people from different classes unteachable or just misunderstood? Explain.

    Both becasue it depends on their sitution, some people are unteacherable beacuse they just refuse to learn at all but their are ones who are misunderstood beacuse they may only be able to learn something a certin way but other may just see them as unteachable because they are unaware of the way they learn best

  7. 1) A society full of people without tolerance would result in disaster and any kind of "socially acceptable" behavior. Tolerance of one another is the building block for peace. Students in the Freedom Writers movie recognized tolerance by listening to one voice that spoke the truth, the teacher, and taking her thoughts into consideration. Change happens one person in the world at the time.
    2) Bullying occurred when a student drew an exaggerated picture to make fun of and belittle the other students of an African American ethnicity.
    3) People of different classes are not unteachable, they are simply misunderstood. Values, beliefs, goals, customs, culture, language, and ideas can all be learned and understood by other social classes and cultures. Social classes are not inherited, they are labels that categorize people into groups/classes that organize them based on their money/wealth/possessions.

  8. 1. If people dont have tolerance they wont be able to deal with other people.
    2. in the clip the kids made fun of this other kid in class by drawing a picture of him but made it look messed up by giving him big lips.
    3. being misunderstood can be like other people around you dont understand whats going on in your life, and unteachable is like there is something wrong that makes it unable for you to learn in classes

  9. 1)Tolerance is a big thing. If we dont have tolerance than how are we suppose to deal with other people. The people in freedom writers had to learn how to tolerate their class mates.
    2)When the students were bullied the teacher was telling them that black people have big lips and when all the students raised their hands because they had been shot at before.
    3)People in different classes are just misunderstood. Nobody takes the time to meet other people from different classes so therefore they dont know how it is.

  10. 1.People should learn tolerance to deal with and respect other people.Without tolerance,there would be a lot of arguing and fighting all the time.The students learned tolerance by listening to the other students and the teacher.
    2.The drawing of the African American and the hurtful words that were spoken in the classroom.
    3.People of different classes are misunderstood.Values and beliefs can differ throughout social classes,making it harder for people to communicate on common terms.It is also harder to understand a certain situation if you have never had to deal with it.

  12. 1.) People need tolerance in everything not just for other people. If no one has tolerance you cant get by in this world successfully especially with people. There will constantly be a problem and something will always be wrong.
    2.) The boy who got the picture drawn of him was being bullied.
    3.) They are definitely misunderstood. Everyone takes everybody the wrong way, just becasue they look a certain way or something inthat category people automatically put a guard up or say they dont like them for some reason, just because they dont do things the way you do makes them a bad person or you dont like them, thats what wrong with people these days, like the same old saying, "Everyone should all just get along" thats the big problem.

  14. 1.) Why should people learn tolerance? How did students in the Freedom Writers
    learn tolerance?
    + People should learn tolerance so that they are able to socialize with other people,
    so that even if you don't like a certain person or race, you can put up with them, even
    if they don't deserve it. They learned it by being taught by her and hearing about
    other people's situations, and not their own; be being educated about it.

    2. ) Bully like behaviors are seen all around us; even when students don't belong to
    a gang. Describe an instance where students were bullied in the clip.
    + It happened when one student thought that it would be funny to draw an exaggerated
    picture of a black guy with really big lips.

    3.) Are people from different classes unteachable or just misunderstood? Explain.
    + People are never unteachable, just extremely misunderstood.

  15. 1.) Why should people learn tolerance? How did students in the Freedom Writers learn tolerance?
    - People should learn tolerance because it will help them socialize with people, so they know what types of things are alright to say or do. In "Freedom Writers" the students learned tolerance by taking time to stop, say their opinions and listen to each other and the teacher.

    2. ) Bully like behaviors are seen all around us; even when students don't belong to a gang. Describe an instance where students were bullied in the clip.
    - In the beginning, when one of the students drew and exaggerated picture to depict and make fun of the African American ethnicity.

    3.) Are people from different classes unteachable or just misunderstood? Explain.
    - Misunderstood. All the classes have different beliefs, values, ideas, and lifestyles that make them unique and seperate them from the others. While they all may learn things differently and at different paces, it doesn't necessarily mean that they are unteachable. Sometimes you have to take a step back, forget yourself and your values, and look at things with an unbiased view.

  16. 1) People should learn tolerance, so that they can function in society. Listening to the other students stories and the teachers stories helped the teens learn tolerance.
    2) The picture that the one boy drew and the hateful things that they said to each other.
    3) They are misunderstood because nobody is unteachable.

  17. 1.) People should learn tolerance so we dont all all hate each other and we can all get along. They learned tolerance by listening to the other peoples problems.
    2.) When tito was making fun of the american american guy about how big his leps were.
    3.) Misunderstood. Because people judge other by what they look like or by the way the act but they dont know the problems people r going through.

  18. 1.) The students learned tolerance by hearing about what the teacher was saying to them. They also learned it from the streets that the had grew up on, and the way they have been raised.
    2. ) When everyone is making fun of the teacher, the student was trying not to show the picture to her, and he tried to warn her to not ask about it. Though she didn't listen, and she became more bullied, because of what she was saying to them.
    3.) Alot of people are misunderstood, I know that I am misunderstood a lot of the time, because of the way that I act, the way that I am in general. I always seem to have something on my mind and everyone seems to ask me what's wrong, when nothing is wrong at all, then there are times that something is wrong and nobody can tell.

  20. 1. Tolerance helps people to become more understanding & open-minded, & less ignorant; it helps in societies. The students learned tolerance when they finally listened to the teacher and began to be more openminded to people other than themselves.
    2. The latino was bullying the black boy when the latino drew that pic.
    3. People from other classes are just misunderstood and ignorant. They don't try to and/or want to learn about others so they remain ignorant & they don't try help others understand them.

  21. 1.) People should learn tolerance because if not you want be as respectful and meet people, i dont think you'd really be a happy person. They listen to the teacher and see others besides themselfs and there "gangs" or groups of friends.
    2. ) When they had that drawing of the boy and his nose. Also, when the girl was screaming at the teacher about hating white people.
    3.) I think everyone is teachable and can always find away to teach someone. They may seem like they dont want to be taught or think something dumb but deep down they want to know and really do care.. Everyone cares about certain things in school. And also teacher just has to be willing to teach those kids.

  22. 1. People need to learn tolerance because each person they meet will not be the same as they are and having tolerance can create a mind that is more open-minded. They learned that they had to tolerate each other in order to create a productive learning environment. They had to learn to get along and tolerate each individual's beliefs.

    2. When that boy drew a picture of the boy's nose who was Jewish.

    3. I think almost all kids are teachable if teachers can learn the correct way to teach them. Some teachers try and teach all students the same and that's not the case with many kids. They learn differently and if teachers can try and find another way of teaching that could help them out then they could learn better.

  23. 1) People should learn tolerance because noone is the same, and people should know to tolerate those they dont exactly agree with. The kids in Freedom Writers learned tolerace by understanding each others situations.
    2)That girl was yelling at the teacher about how she hated white people, and he latino kid that drew a picture of the jewish boys nose.
    3) I dont really know...it seems like some people will never change no matter what, not to be negitive, but some people will just not listen.

    It helps you get along with everyone.. to function positively in the world. They learned about the different culutures in their classroom and respected their classmates.

    The Jewish boy thing :/
    3.) Are people from different classes unteachable or just misunderstood? Explain.
    Misunderstood.. although most of the time I feel like some people in lower classes are unteachable. Encouragement and understanding would help instead of just letting the negative issues continue. (As Hilary Swank proved...) :D

  25. 1.) Why should people learn tolerance? How did students in the Freedom Writers learn tolerance?

    People should learn tolerance because it's important when trying to treat everyone equally. You have to be open minded to everyone's individual situation. In the movie the students learned tolerance because they learned about everyone's situation and they then realized that they weren't so different from each other than they had thought.

    2. ) Bully like behaviors are seen all around us; even when students don't belong to a gang. Describe an instance where students were bullied in the clip.

    The students said very hurtful and degrading words to each other. Also when they drew a picture of the kid and the picture had large lips and also when they drew a picture of the Jewish boy and his nose.

    3.) Are people from different classes unteachable or just misunderstood? Explain.

    Misunderstood because we are a little biased to whichever class we are from. We don't really give other classes a chance or to understand their situation or the circumstances.

  26. 1. People should learn tolerance because it will help you to better control yourself. The students in the clip learned tolerance by listening to what the teacher had to say.

    2. One instance is when the teacher was talking bad about african americans. Another is when all of the mean and racest things were said among the students.

    3. Misunderstood because I beleive that anyone can be tought no matter what class that they are in.

  27. 1.people should learn tolerance because you will have better self dicipline and know how to deal with other people. in the movie learned about everyone's situation and they then realized that they weren't so different from each other than they had thought.
    2. when other kids would say mean and degrading things to each other and when they drew bad pics of some of the kids.
    3. they are just misunderstood because each class thinks theirs is the best and they really don't look at the other classes to see how they are.

  28. 1.) Why should people learn tolerance? How did students in the Freedom Writers learn tolerance?

    Tolerance is important so you can try to treat others equally. People must learn to agree to disagree. Plus if people have a tolerance for other people they might at least be able to act civil to each other.

    2. ) Bully like behaviors are seen all around us; even when students don't belong to a gang. Describe an instance where students were bullied in the clip.

    When the students passed around a drawing of another student being made fun of on it.

    3.) Are people from different classes unteachable or just misunderstood? Explain.

    Well everyone is teachable, its their choice weither to learn it or not. and yes. Everyone is a little misunderstood, because people dont know what all you as a person has been through in your life time.

    3.) Everyone is teachable but it is their choice whether they want to learn or not. If they dont want to learn, they wont. Some people are misunderstood because like in the clip, the teacher assumed that she knew what the students were going through when in actuality, she didnt.

  30. 1.) Why should people learn tolerance? How did students in the Freedom Writers learn tolerance?
    Tolerance is necessary because it gives people a since of discipline to allow themselves to understand others. Instead of judging on sight their able to see things in other perspectives. The students were able to learn tolerance because they learned each others cultures and situations.
    2. ) Bully like behaviors are seen all around us; even when students don't belong to a gang. Describe an instance where students were bullied in the clip.
    A clear example is the students passing around a picture of another student exaggerating the size of his lips.
    3.) Are people from different classes unteachable or just misunderstood? Explain.
    Misunderstood, no one's entirely unteachable. People don't like to think about the different situations others go through. It's easier to blindly believe everyone's just like you are.

    3)People are just misunderstood because towards the end they were beginning to want to listen to her. They just wasn't looking at things in an open mind they were assming things and the teacher was assuming things a little also. She didn't know that all of them were going through what they were.

  33. 1. people should learn tolerance because judging people isn't fair and gets us nowhere. you never know what someone else has been through, and the teacher in this video learns where the kids have been and what they've gone through. this results in a mutual respect.
    2. an example of bullying was when the girl said that she hated white people... it wasn't directed towards the white boy in the classroom, but just the fact that somebody would say that they hate you is kind of.. mean.
    3. they are missunderstood. nobody really knows what they go through except for themselves, and when people judge those from other classes, it shows that they don't understand what's ACTUALLY going on in that person's life.

  34. 1. People should learn to tolerate because if you don't, life is going to be that much harder for you. You shouldn't tolerate everything. That makes you apathetic, which is not good. But a certain level of tolerance is needed in everyday life. The students in this video showed tolerane by listening to what everyone else had to say. Giving them a chance to speak out about what has and is happening in their lives.
    2. Well, through out most of this clip bullying was happening. There were plenty of racist and prejuidice things said.
    3. I think it can be both. We all want to say they're just misunderstood but the fact is sometimes they really are unteachable for whatever reason. Sometimes it's not that they couldn't learn, it's that they have no motivation to learn or that they feel in their situation it's hopeless so they don't even try. People can be very hard-headed and it's difficult to make someone see themselves in a different light. That maybe they aren't as dumb as people say they are. It can defintiely go both ways though.

  35. 1.) Because tolerance is apart of like if you cant tolerate things then you will just be a angry person, eventually they bagan to get along with other groups of people
    2. ) well he wasnt really bullied but the girl was saying how she hated white people and the teacher and one of the students were white so shes saying she hates them
    3.) No they can definatly be taught, you just have to try harder and they have to want to learn

  36. 1.) when people learn tolerance i think it allows society to work better together. The kids in the moive learned tolerance by allowing the teacher to do her thing and they ended up liking her.
    2. ) In the begining one of the boys is being bullied because he has a big nose. His classmates pick on him and draw a picture making fun of him.
    3.)i think people are just misunderstood. i don't believe that anyone is unteachable.

  37. 1.) Well, tolerance is easy thing to grasp, one in a sense "tolerates" other people's beliefs, cultures, that sort. Its a good thing to have because one can put aside what meets the eye and get to know a person by their mind and personality rather than their background. The students learned tolerance becuase their teacher let them discuss their lives in class, when people vent together they feel closer to one another and in tern that creates a sense of tolerance.
    2. ) The students said hateful and disrespectful things to one another, for example when the kids were making fun of a boy because of his nose.
    3.) I personally believe it is neither of those options. I believe everyone is equal and it is up to the person to make the right decissions with their life, if they choose to be "unteachable" or "misunderstood" then thats something they need to deal with themselves, make good decisions is all i can say. Class systems shouldnt have an effect on a person.

    3.)Misunderstood.. although most of the time I feel like some people in lower classes are unteachable. Encouragement and understanding would help instead of just letting the negative issues continue.

  57. 1.) If you dont have tolerance than you are very likely to ignore any history made by the races that you hate. For example, none of the black people in the class knew about the holocaust.
    2. ) When the picture was being passed around, it bullied all of the black students. Also the only white guy in the class was bullied apon by all of the black people.
    3.) people from other classes usualy are missinterpreted as ignorant. Some from that class are usualy ignorant only because of the glass ceiliing that they set for them.

    3)I wouldnt say that they are misunderstood but I wouldnt say that they are unteachable either. I think they are just clueless in a sense.

    - i think people should learn tolerance because maybe not so much right now but later in the feature your going to have to learn how to tolerate people. and thats all kinds of people not just the ones that you dont like. they were learning tolerance by each of there situations. like they were learning from each other.

  62. 1) People should learn tolerance because we live in a world where everyone is different. With so much freedom to move throughout the world and express ourselves, there is no way to not come into contact with others that you do not agree with or do not mesh with. Tolerance is necessary to be able to live and socialize with others in a peaceful and real way.

    The students in Freedom Writers learned tolerance through hearing each other and listening to each other. By joining together and becoming a family unit. They came to understand each other the more time they spent with each other and the more time they opened up to each other.

    2) In the clip, the black student is bullied through the drawing of him with exaggerated lips, fulfilling the stereotype of black people.

    3) People from different classes are by no means unteachable. Freedom Writers shows that in the end. Therefore, they are simply misunderstood. The students came together and became a family when they began to understand each other, when they experienced things together and stopped assuming things and stereotyping each other. When eyes are opened up, they can then begin to understand many things, even those from different classes. It simply takes an open mind to accomplish that, and a willingness to work at it because it is no easy task.

    They learned it from examples and from mistakes of the past, I think we should look at the past and learn that all people are equal

  65. 1.) when people learn tolerance i think it allows society to work better together. The kids in the moive learned tolerance by allowing the teacher to do her thing and they ended up liking her.
    2. ) In the begining one of the boys is being bullied because he has a big nose. His classmates pick on him and draw a picture making fun of him.

    -people should learn tolerance, because in the real world you need tolerance, not everyone you deal with is going to be nice and friendly you need to learn real life skills.

  67. 1. because if you can't tolerate people you will constantly be fighting with them and arguing

    2. When they had that drawing of the boy and his nose. Also, when the girl was screaming at the teacher about hating white people.

    3. Everyone is teachable but it is their choice whether they want to learn or not. If they dont want to learn, they wont.

  69. 1) Yes he is an American.
    2) When they pick on the boy by drawing a picture that shows big lips and a big nose; proving stereotypes.
    3) I think they are mainly misunderstood but they also have a feeling that maybe they dont belong in the environment that they have been placed in in class and so they dont cooperate so it makes then unteachable.

  70. 1) I think that it is important for people to learn tolerance and respect. You need these things in order to activly participate in todays society. They learned tolerance by gaining the capability to respect their white teacher and their fellow classmates.
    2)One example of bullying in this clip is when the guy draws a picture of a Jewish persons nose.
    3)If a student is not willing to participate in class and respect the people around them, then they are not unteachable but rather ignorant. They might be misunderstood but you can not force knowledge on someone who is just too ignorant to learn.
