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.

How does the choice of names (Principal Prickly) further stereotype characters found in this film?

As a resident of Canada, I would just like to clarify that contrary to the information in this film, we do have recess here and our kids play outside in almost every kind of weather. Though I’d like to think we have the highest test scores in the world, if this movie is the source of that statistic, then the credibility of the information may be in doubt.
