|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.
A scene in this movie depicts a house party with dozens of teens holding plain colored plastic cups. What do you think they are drinking? Do you think the creators of this teen movie carefully considered this decision? How would clear glasses have created a different conclusion?
Both Nick Cannon and Shawn Ashmore are in their mid-twenties, yet they are playing high school students. Why do older people portray most teenagers in movies? Do you think they look like 17-year-olds?
The character of Tracy Stokes is a high school dropout, who later passed his GED.
