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.

While Showtime may be a spoof of reality cop shows, there have been serious programs made along this theme. Would an officer’s job performance be affected by having a camera record his/her every move? Would you act differently if you knew you were being filmed? Do you think that having cameras in schools, on public transit, and in malls affects how people act in those areas?

Police officers have to rely heavily on their partners during dangerous situations. How do you think they develop that trust? Who is someone you would be able to rely on if your life were in danger?

Preston’s apartment was spruced up because Renzi believed it was too average to interest television viewers. Do you think his new d0xE9cor reflects what most homes look like? What other myths do movies and television promote? What about the way people spend their time, the clothes they wear, or the way they interact with others? How often do you see actors doing mundane things like making their bed, washing dishes, grocery shopping, or doing homework?
