Do you have any suggestions for expanding or tweaking their understanding and application of these terms and readings?

Learning Goal: I’m working on a education & teaching question and need guidance to help me learn.You will need to put on your EDL 204 glasses for this activity! You will also need the Course Terms & Readingschart, listing course terms and readings. This discussion is a practice for our next big paper, the Cultural Studies Media Analysis Paper.Watch this 10-minute clip (minutes 27-37) from the movie Freedom Writers. The clip is available in our Media Gallery on the left here in Canvas.In the film, Ms. Erin Gruwell is a white female teacher from an affluent background, who graduated from an Ivy League college and gained alternative licensure (did not major in teacher education, but completed a brief summer program). She is teaching in an urban, diverse, lower socioeconomic status high school in Oakland, Ca in the 1990’s. This film is loosely based on a true story. As you watch, put on your EDL 204 glasses. Think critically about the movie, using course terms as a lens with which to view the movie. There is a lot to unpack here! Example: “Freedom Writers” is an example of the white savior narrative. The white savior narrative is a story that we all know, a dominant narrative, that a white person comes into a minority community and saves those individuals. Implied in this narrative is that the minority students are helpless, do not have agency to improve themselves. Ms. Gruwell is portrayed here as the white savior, come to save the helpless poor, minority students. She doesn’t really see them as people, doesn’t really know them, just sees them as deficient (at first). This rhetorical device of white savior is used in a lot of mainstream movies! You cannot use “white savior narrative” in your answer,since I just modeled this one for you! 🙂 Initial PostFor your discussion post, you can use terms and readings from this week and previous weeks. Select 2-3 course terms and/or readings (see Course Terms & Readings Chart above) to use to analyze the film. As in the example above, define the term or describe the course text info that connects with the film. Your post should not look like you could have written it before taking this course! Use the course terms and readings! Disclaimer about Good Intentions: Yes, Ms. Gruell has good intentions! She is trying hard to be a good teacher! This analysis is not a personal attack on her (or anyone) as a teacher. But are good intentions enough? What if our good intentions perpetuate the problems, or even exacerbate them? In this film, look at what is actually happening in the classroom, in the school context, in the relationships between teachers and students, in teacher recruitment and preparation (especially for our neediest students), in the stratified make up of our public schools, in society in general. We are thinking critically here. Post by the due date.RepliesBy the due date, please read and respond to at least 2 of your classmates’ posts. Select students who used different terms or readings than you did! How do their thoughts help to expand your views on the movie and your understanding of these concepts and readings? Do you have any suggestions for expanding or tweaking their understanding and application of these terms and readings? This can be a short post for each. See rubric for grading on syllabus or here: Rubric for Readings Notes and Discussions (Word Doc).
