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 are cultural groups and individuals depicted in this story? Do these portrayals promote stereotypes in a positive or negative way?

Chet tells Turbo that not every dream is meant to come true. How can parents help their children balance their aspirations with a sense of reality? Should parents ever discourage their children’s dreams? Can a person find alternate ways to achieve success if his or her original plans don’t work out?

Although the film’s content concerns are fairly limited, the movie does depict street racing, speeding and the excessive use of energy drinks. How can parents use these portrayals to talk about these risky behaviors with their children?

Turbo becomes an Internet sensation after a recording of his local snail race goes viral. What impact does social networking have on pop culture? How can it create instant fame?
