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.

Does the character chosen to be the first shark victim in this film surprise you? What racial and regional stereotypes do you see? Who is rich and smart? Who is struggling in school? Why do you think these depictions persist in American movies?
