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 might the accomplishments of these young men influence others who hope to achieve similar fame and fortune? How much of their success is based on their own abilities and how much is the result of good connections? Can money and recognition interfere with personal relationships?

What does this film suggest about life on university campuses? Do you think these depictions are accurate? How might the partying lifestyle impact a student’s academic achievements?
