Description

We follow 17-year-old Ceejay as she tries to leave her gang life behind her. She gets advice from Gwenton Sloley who was in a notorious gang himself, and is now working with kids like Ceejay to try to steer them away from the gang lifestyle. She visits a psychotherapist and talks with a former girl gang member who has managed to find a clear path ahead.

Classroom Ideas

Students could try to put themselves in Ceejay's shoes by creating a role-play around the difficulty of breaking away from gang life. Challenge the students to use their individual role-plays as the basis for a short script that they could act out in front of the class.
