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 Olsen twins have proven to be a powerful force in the lives of many young girls. Their clothing, cosmetics, and other licensed consumer goods are very popular and well accepted. What kind of effect do you think this pre-selling of Mary-Kate and Ashley’s image may have on those same young people who see their movies?

This film has some obvious stereotypes. Why are crooks often portrayed as foreigners? What type of person is the truant officer?

Could Roxy still pursue her music aspirations without being dishonest with her father? Have you ever wanted to do something you didn’t think your parents would approve of? Have they ever surprised you when you’ve asked them for their opinion?
