|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.
This film is a great discussion opener regarding popular music. Glenn Miller was as popular with young people during his day as major rock and hip-hop artists are today. How have music and presentation styles changed? What things are similar?
Men in this film are often condescending toward women, and make remarks inferring you hunt down a woman and keep her as your trophy. Do all of the male characters in this movie act this way? Even though these portrayals appear outdated and even perhaps offensive by modern standards, have such attitudes really disappeared? In what forms do we see women presented as “trophies” in today’s popular culture?
