Are the students in The Ron Clark Story (2006) real?
I recently watched The Ron Clark Story, a story based on the marvelous teacher Ronald Clark. The film has students like Julio Vasquez, Shameika Wallace, and Jayshaun Mitchell. I'm just curious if all the students he teaches in the film are real or based on real people he taught in Harlem, New York.

What is a motivational story of an engineering student that can motivate an undergrad?
The story I am going to tell, is basically not a motivational story but a real life incident that you can tell a undergraduate, to enhance their interest in studies. So here I go:There was a short , dull and lazy boy in our batch, he always comes late to the class and sleeps throughout the lecture. Many a times he was made to stand outside the classroom. He asks stupid questions. (as thought by our batchmates )Nobody likes to talk with him and nobody ever wondered that, why did he came late to the lectures. Our batchmates call him ASKHOLE ( because he ask stupid questions). He was never seen in canteen, most of the time he was seen outside 1st year ,2 nd year and other classrooms. Everybody thought that he is a very big idiot, as he never attend his lectures and switches to other classroom. Everyone calls him an ASKHOLE. Then our 1st semester exams took place, everyone was baffled after seeing the results. The short, dull and lazy guy topped in our college. He was late because he wasn't able to wake up on time. He sleeps throughout the lectures because he studied whole night. Seen mostly outside other classrooms because he used to wait there, for the lecturers to come out and clear his doubts. He was always dedicated towards his study and never wasted a single second, to worry about the rumours airing about him. Everyone was in shock, that how did he topped in the college. Many people ask him, about this , he said that it was written in his destiny. But we all know, destiny didn't work , if we didn't. From then onwards, nobody calls him ASKHOLE. Everybody wants him to be their friend. All his queries are dealt with pleasure. He was again named but this time, as "GENIUS". He is very polite, kind and nice person. He talks to everyone very nicely and always ready to help others. And never said a single bad word about the persons who laughed and teased him in the beggining. He proved that, "Action speaks louder than words".This was a real life incident.I hope, this will help you to increase your interest in studies.
Is the Movie "Freedom Writers" based on a true story?
Freedom Writers is inspired by a true story and the diaries of real Long Beach, California teenagers after the 1992 Los Angeles riots, during the worst outbreak of interracial gang warfare. Set in and around Wilson Classical High School in Long Beach, California during the mid 90's, two-time Academy Award winner Hilary Swank stars as Erin Gruwell, whose passion to become a teacher is soon challenged by a group of Black, Latino, and Asian street gangsters who hate her even more than each other, mainly due to her being White. After a few days of class, Erin and her students get into a debate about racism during which she compares a caricature of a black student with big lips, drawn by another student, to the Nazis' caricatures of Jews with big noses. She then takes her students to the Museum of Tolerance to teach them about the Holocaust. Over the course of the movie, Erin finds more ways to teach her students about racism and respect. As Erin begins to listen to them in a way no adult has ever done, she begins to understand that these kids believe that surviving is enough - that they are not delinquents but teenagers fighting "a war of the streets" that began long before they were born. For the first time, the teens experience hope that they can show the world that their lives matter and that they have something to say. Since the school is not very capable and unwilling to pay for books and excursions, she pays a lot herself, financed by two extra, part-time, jobs. Because of the little time she is with her husband, he divorces her. One of the books students read is The Diary of Anne Frank. Money is raised to have Miep Gies come over to talk about the Holocaust. Ms. G, as her students come to call Gruwell, hands out journals to her students so they can write about the past, present, future, good days and bad ones. Happily, she watches each student come to her desk and take one. Later on she sits down to read and becomes amazed at their stories and hardships. These students become freedom writers. Ms. G makes her students type up their stories into a book they title, "The Freedom Writers Diary," and according to the end credits, this book was published in 1999.
