This sends the main character Josie back to high school, the place she hated most where she becomes the same unpopular girl she was in high school. Josie fights though the movie to be clear of her loser label and make it in with the cool crowd.
Social Psychology Final Paper Daniel Lear Easy A December 3, 2012 The film Easy A explains the life of a high school girl who got herself into a lot of trouble by trying to fit in with the status quo. A teenager named Olive (played by Emma Stone) tells a simple white lie and goes from an unnoticed normal girl to the town “slut” who is suddenly the talk of the school. The purpose of this paper is to explain the social psychology themes that are present throughout the film such as, the Social Comparison Theory, self-presentation and impression management, stereotypes, and self-concept. I will go into great detail and show specific examples of how each theme is tied into the film and how they relate to our everyday lives. I will also try and find the overarching theme of self in this film and explain why it is so important to be true to your values of self.
Another one of the major problems caused from not setting dress code for student in high school is computation with in students that ones were each other’s success. Teens in high school of 21st century admit that there’s more computation with others kids not only in sports, educations, but also in dress they wear. Also according to time spend and the experience as being a formal high school student, if the public school set up a dress code it would help both, the students and school faculty. It
Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan), the 16-year-old homeschooled daughter of zoologist parents (Ana Gasteyer and Neil Flynn), recently moved from Africa, is unprepared for her first day of public high school at North Shore High School in Evanston, Illinois. With the help of social outcasts Janis (Lizzy Caplan) and Damien (Daniel Franzese), Cady learns about the various cliques. She is warned to avoid the school's most exclusive clique, the Plastics, the reigning trio of girls led by the acid-tongued queen bee Regina George (Rachel McAdams).

However, the Plastics take a shine to Cady and invite her to sit with them at lunch and go shopping with them after school.
ISP PART C: CONTEXTUAL CRITICISM When writing the book Nineteen Minutes, Jodi Picoult takes into consideration her children’s personal experiences of being bullied at school as well as the history of school shootings. On March 6, 2007 Nineteen Minutes was published; on that very day Peter went to school and took the lives of nine students and one teacher. The story takes place in Sterling, a small town in New Hampshire; it was a town where “everyone knew everyone else” (21). As a mother of three, Picoult has seen her own children struggle to fit in and be what society wants them to be. “It was listening to their experiences, and my own frustrations, that led me to consider the topic.” Picoult also incorporates events that have taken place in the past into Nineteen Minutes, including the way the police told the parents of the deceased how their children had died.
It is impossible to create something that everyone will like, but I believe that it is the elements that go into the movie that can make a movie entertaining or not. In the movie Mean Girls, written by Tina Fey, the use of humor and the overall message makes the movie enjoyable to many. The movie Mean Girls began with the first day of high school for 16 year old Cady Heron who, up until now, had been home schooled in Africa by her zoologist parents. Not understanding the social or school rules of high school, Cady found herself in dire need of some guidance. Luckily, two social outcasts, Janice and Damien, showed her around and warned her of all the other social cliques in the school.
In my opinion, these students are not the only ones who will learn through this journey. Erin and the many students’ lives she and they impact will inspire others like me, even if my fear is only writing. 3. Plan for writing: The challenge Erin is faced with is not only as a new High School English teacher, yet her confrontations supposed “un-teachable, at-risk students. I will expose most of the personal diary entries written by almost all of the students, and their past and present dilemmas as they go through the four years at Wilson High School, in Long beach CA.
The movie ‘Mean Girls’ provides insights into the concept of belonging because throughout the film the director Mark Waters shows the journey of Cady Herring (Lindsay Lohan) trying to find where she belongs in the social ranking at her new high school. Her predilection to belong with the ‘popular groups’, this desire puts some of her very few friendships she has on hold and they slowly start to crumble. The film discusses how trying to belong does not always have a positive outcome and isn’t always a positive thing to achieve. In today’s society almost everyone is superficial; people are judged on their appearance, the brands of clothing they wear, weather they have the latest phone, laptop, the type of house they live in the area in which they live and if they have a high paying job. And if you don’t have all of these or most of these you are generally considered an outcast.
I knew it wasn’t the place for me neither were the people. Freshmen year changed my whole life forever. I got into an altercation with a girl I never knew. A few months into school she started antagonizing me, following, making slick remarks, and most of all one day she touched me this put the icing on the cake. When she hit me I blacked out and we got into a serious fight.
For example my math teacher left the class for 5 minutes to use the bathroom one day, I was sitting down doing a task then two kids got up and started kicking me and pouring all my things out of my back pack. Everyone looked and laughed. I did not know what to do, I was in a great amount of pain and had no one by myside. I felt if I told my teacher or my dean I would be beat up again for being a snitch.Throughout the entire year every single day something new would come about. So I told my mom what was going on and her and my uncle got me in boxing to help increase my self esteem up.
