Still shot from the movie: Juno.

Juno

When sixteen-year-old Juno (Ellen Page) discovers she is pregnant, she handles the delicate situation with youthful tactlessness and her own brand of humor. The unborn baby's father (Michael Cera), and her parents (J.K. Simmons and Allison Janney), lend various amounts of support as the unwed teen looks for a couple to adopt her child.

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.

How does Juno’s pregnancy affect her in comparison to the effects felt by Paulie? Does he suffer any consequences for his involvement? What are the repercussions for Juno? What is the film’s overall attitude toward sexual activity among teens?

What difficult decisions does Juno have to face once she discovers she is pregnant? Are those choices realistically depicted? What other issues might arise for teens in this situation?

How does Juno’s family support her? How do you feel about their reaction? What kinds of agencies are designed to help in these circumstances?
