Woodlawn Companion Activities

Where does the courage come from to defend your beliefs in the face of fear of hatred?

Woodlawn tells the story of Tony Nathan who joined fellow African-American students at Woodlawn High School in Birmingham, Alabama following government-mandated desegregation in the early 1970's. As violence and anger erupted in the city, Woodlawn football coach Tandy Gerelds allowed an outsider to speak to his players. His message of hope and love lead to a spiritual awakening that inspired star athlete Nathan, his teammates, and other members of the community to overcome the hate that surrounds them.

Woodlawn Companion Activities guides students to see that our beliefs can be a powerful force to stand up for what is right and change the world.

In order to complete these activities students will need to watch the movie Woodlawn, which has a rating of PG and a run time of 2 hours and 4 minutes.

The activities in this lesson will challenge students to move closer to mastery in the following skills: leadership, cooperation with others, creativity, critical thinking, emotional intelligence, problem solving, and judgment and decision making.
