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.

Calvin and the coach quickly build a relationship of trust and respect. What did they each do to make this possible?

Lil Bow Wow’s first claim to fame is being the youngest rap artist to reach mainstream notoriety (hence the inclusion of rap music in the movie’s score). While we haven’t reviewed his songs, our research indicates that the language usually isn’t objectionable, but some of the themes may be cause for concern.

Like Mike has many product placements (hidden commercials for real life products). How many can you find? And if you noticed that the NBA seemed to be getting a lot of publicity too, it’s no accident… two of the movie’s executive producers are NBA executives.
