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.

When the girls attempt to help catch the criminals, one cheerleader uses some unlawful skills she acquired while in juvenile detention. Why are illegal activities often portrayed as the only solution to a problem? What options might the girls have used instead?

Roland gets after a squad member who is caught plagiarizing a school paper. Why does he believe that cheating is worse than stupid? What does he do to help encourage her with her next assignment? How rampant do you think cheating is in your school?
