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.

How does this film portray what teen language was like in the 1980s? How have fashion and hairstyles changed in the past 25 years?

Although there are no real historical facts revealed in this script, might this film encourage young viewers to look up more information about the characters that Ted and Bill bring home?

How realistic does Bill and Ted’s dream of having a band seem at the time? Why is it sometimes hard to judge what successes might be achieved in the future?
