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.

There are numerous product placements in this film. How many can you find? What impact might these advertisements have on viewers? What logos were modified in the film? Why might some organizations decline having their product shown?

Jimmy and Chazz attempt a dangerous and difficult move in the World Championship finals. What motivates athletes to try more and more challenging routines? What risks are involved? Should sport federations, such as figure skating, hockey, football and others, limit the kind of moves or actions their competitors can be involved in?

Although pairs competitions presently showcase male/female partners, what impact might a film like this have on future events?
