|How We Determine Our Grades|
After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.
The film includes one token female driver in their race sequence, but is she taken seriously as a contender? How are women portrayed in the rest of the film? Do pink cars, tiny bikinis and barely covered bodies promote strong female characters?
After 108 minutes of fast cars, irresponsible driving and stunts, the movie producers run a brief disclaimer at the end of film. What types of dangerous actions in movies do you think are most likely to be imitated? Do you think the entertainment industry has a responsibility in this regard? Who else is responsible for helping young viewers understand the inherent dangers often portrayed in movies?
