The Comebacks

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.

What elements are necessary to pull off a successful parody? What is the difference between a genuine spoof and the simple rehashing of a scene?

What is the shelf life of a teen-oriented movie? How might this contribute to the regular reuse of materiel/ideas that this particular genre frequently suffers from?
