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.

Chenille’s character states, “You can’t help who you fall in love with.” Do you agree with her? Does this mean Chenille can do nothing about the dysfunctional relationship she has with her son’s father? Can your head be as important as your heart?

Derek’s character says, “Hip-Hop is as much about attitude as it is about dance.” What kind of attitude do you see portrayed in this style of dance and music?

Dance films were very popular during the 70’s and 80’s. This film and Center Stage seem to be attempts to revive the genre in the 2000’s.
