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.

Why is Gus hesitant to start a family? What could he do to overcome his fears?

Do the nerds act any more compassionately than the jocks in this film? Is revenge a justifiable alternative to their problems? Are there other ways they could have dealt with the bullies?

Why do films often rely on stereotypical characters? Are either the nerds or jocks accurately portrayed? Are there people who are both brainy and athletic?
