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.

What consequences are shown in this movie for dangerous and irresponsible driving? How does Tobey justify endangering so many innocent lives? What consequence does the organizer of the DeLeon race face?

How are police portrayed in this film? What affect might that have on real drivers?

The actors in this film spent hours and hours working with professional drivers at driving school. As a result they make the stunts look amazing—and easy. The movie also fails to give away the details behind the filming of these scenes and the special precautions. Why might that be dangerous for drivers who think they could pull of the same stunts on real roadways?

This movie is based on the video game Need For Speed.
