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.

Musician Chris Brown plays a lead role in this movie. For young fans of Brown, how difficult is it to separate his real life activities from the character he plays in the movie?

One character blames everyone else when things go wrong rather than ever accepting any responsibility. Is that attitude one that teens may emulate more readily because of the actor’s popularity with young audiences?

What attitudes do these crewmembers have to overcome? How does the coach encourage a team perspective?

How can decisions about camera angles, cinematography, lighting, music etc. impact the audiences’ experience when watching a movie?
