This needs to be said: No one should assume that movies depict teachers and teaching accurately.

No one should learn from movie depictions of the same, except to critique said depictions. All that said, there are two truths about such representations:

  1. Movies often do not show how teachers decompress. This is mirrors life and is boring or ugly, so viewers seeking entertainment might reject it.
  2. The best teachers listen first, listen again, and listen some more, before offering anything of substance.

It does not take much to create opportunities for some critical thinking.

It might help to bring in a context shared by all your learners. It might also help to use a funny video.

Not all will identify with the father’s loss of his son. Not all with appreciate the humour. But most, if not all, will react to the emotion.

If we want our learners to think, we must get them to feel first.
