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 beliefs about cheerleaders does this movie promote? What other “typical” teen characters are depicted in this film? How do these portrayals further negative stereotypes about teens?

What do these characters learn about honesty, maturity and competition? What benefits are there for being part of a team?
