|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 mixed messages does this film teach? What is the dramatic effect of contrasting the perceived innocence of life in the early 1960s with not-so-innocent sexual remarks and societal problems?
Do you feel it is appropriate to deal with serious issues, like racial segregation, in a comedic fashion? When can humor help to promote understanding and cooperation? When does it belittle or become a distraction?
What is the other prejudice portrayed in this film? Does the media still have a biased view of body image?
