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.

Justin Long, the actor playing the principal character in this film, is supposed to be a high school senior, yet in reality he is 28 years old. Why are directors who make movies about high school students so reluctant to use actors who are in their teens? Do you think we are more accepting of seeing teens doing illegal and sexually questionable activities if they look like adults?

Are post-secondary schools too “picky” about who is accepted? What other educational opportunities are available aside from college and university?
