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.

Does the recurring depiction of high school clichés reinforce the idea that students can only identify with one type of group? What other stereotypical depictions of teenagers do viewers see in this film?

How does fame impact Alvin? What are the challenges of belonging to a group? Why do many musical bands break up over time?

How have moviemakers updated the chipmunks to make them appeal to today’s children?
