Sydney White

In this renovated fairytale, a collage student named Sydney White (Amanda Bynes) joins forces with seven misfit males, and sets out to makeover the campus's prejudices and bullying practices. But her plan to paint the world right threatens to unseat a reigning sorority queen (Sara Paxton) --and that's something the evil witch will not take sitting down. 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.

Why is Sydney so eager to join the sorority? What does she discover about herself and the other girls during pledge week? Why is she worried about disappointing her father?

What similarities does this film have with the original fairytale? How do the writers use names to distinguish the personalities of the characters? How do the seven geeks compare with the dwarfs?

What lessons does Sydney learn from her classroom experience that applies to real life? How does she implement those lessons into her campaign?
