Still shot from the movie: Rocky.

Rocky

After his scheduled opponent backs out of a match against the reigning world heavy weight champion (Carl Weathers), the consummate showman decides to stage a fight against a local boxer and give him a Cinderella shot at the coveted belt. That is when an underdog contender named Rocky (Sylvester Stallone) steps into the ring. (And like the hero in the movie, the novice actor and his ensuing film franchise went on to win big at the box office as well.) Get the movie review and more. »

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.

One night Rocky passes a street party. Recognizing one of the participants, he escorts the young women home, taking the opportunity to talk to her about the kind of reputation her “dirty mouth” will earn. What do you think he meant? Do people sometimes take on the reputation of company they associate with at school or work?

During the movie we see some changes happening in Adrian. What were they? What do you think caused them? How can the words and actions of others affect the way we feel about ourselves?
