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 original Lone Ranger was a radio show started at station WXYZ in 1933. The show’s inventors, George Trendle and Fran Striker, created a code of conduct, sometimes referred to as the Lone Ranger Creed, to guide the writers of Lone Ranger stories. How well do you feel this version adheres to this creed?

Do you think it’s appropriate to market toys to children that are connected to a movie of this nature? What other films with adult themes have had similar marketing campaigns?

How do you feel about the casting of a non-aboriginal as a Native American character? What stereotypical depictions are used in the portrayal of different ethnicities within this film? How might this affect the way audiences view these groups?
