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.

The movie depicts a rivalry between the high school’s arts and sports departments. Why do these disciplines sometimes battle for supremacy? Which, if either, do you think are important to a balanced education?

Why do Troy and Gabriella learn about friendship as they step outside of their usual circle of interests? What do their peers learn? What revelation does Troy’s father make about his desire to have his son succeed in sports? Do you think it is possible to explore a wide variety of interests and develop new talents?
