The 2000 film Remember the Titans does an amazing job with the extreme social issue of discrimination. In the film, Herman Boone had just been hired to be the new football coach of T.C. Williams High School in Alexandria, Virginia. The school had just been told to integrate so the whites and blacks all go to the same school now, as well as go on the same bus. Coach Boone and the former head coach Bill Yoast both go up to football camp with the new team.
Boaz Yakin, the director of “Remember the Titans”, tell us the story of an American football team of a recently integrated high school. The team transitions from hating each other to becoming a brotherhood. A turning point in this transition is the run to Gettysburg, where coach Boone leads the boys on an early morning run before delivering a powerful speech. After this scene the boys start to respect each other, respect the coach and overcome adversity. Using visual and verbal techniques, Yakin teaches us to respect everyone no matter what race, and to be resilient in the face of adversity.
Bill advocates for participatory decision making involving all the staff so that they are all involved. Bill serves under coach Boone and devotes himself to correct and warn him on the pressure he puts to the players. Despite schemes that are propagated by the school in order to halt coach Boone plans for the team, he remains positive and finds ways to overcome the negative handles. He leads with positive minded approach which later transforms the players to a winning team. The styles that are detrimental in the film include the authoritative leadership depicted by Boone and the prejudiced leadership which is evident in the whole community.
I have had many different types of coaches throughout my eleven years of playing basketball. Some would scream their heads off at you whenever you did something wrong and others would give positive reinforcement no matter if you made a mistake or not. I had three different coaches while I was playing at Hoop Dreams. My first coach at Hoop Dreams was a yeller but she was also very positive in helping you become a better player. My second coach, Stephanie, I had during fifth and sixth grade and she would scream at everyone and you better do what she said, or you would be running all practice.
However further problems emerge as with tensions high, the well known and loved head coach at the school, Bill Yoast, is replaced by a new black coach, Herman Boone. These true events play out in 1971 when school sports are an important value for the community,
The forming stage starts with the choice of Coach Boone as the new head coach of the football team (5:50). Coach Yoast then meets with the guardians and players
We should be able to bond through hard times to make it. Coach Boone’s speech is talking about when the Titians don’t come together as a team and won’t treat each other with equality. Coach Boone is talking about when the war against slavery tore families apart. Brothers we’re shooting their own brothers for something they believed in. similar to MLK’s death.
In the movie, when Coach Boone gave pep talks before the games, the team came together over what Coach Boone said. But, in reality, the team came together when Blue started to sing in training camp, and the others joined in, that is when the team started to become one and bond. When the team listened and sang to music, the team played and became one. This helped them bond together and win the rest of their games. Although the coaches helped them bond and become one team, the team came together through
Both of his parents have taken care of him for an amount of time and have both had successes and failures. They both try to be the appropriate parents for him.
