She also shows interest in their personal lives and this shows the students that she cares for them. The students begin to trust her because of this and this makes it easier for her to teach them. As the movie progresses, the viewer sees the students mature from students who had no hope in life to students who are ready and willing to face the future.
At every stage of adolescent development, adolescents experience a crisis, which gives them an opportunity to grow. The crisis can be a turning point where the adolescent realizes that he or she is no longer a child and that he has to be responsible.
This can be caused by a positive or negative experience. In the movie, one of the female students, Callie, realizes that she has put her future in jeopardy because she is pregnant. She is forced to leave school before the end of the semester because of her pregnancy. She is advised to go to a school for teenage mothers and at first, she agrees despite the fact that it has poor academic standards.
Although she is a bright student who excels in English, the fact that she is in that particular class means that she does not see the benefits of education. The teacher manages to encourage the girl to stay in school and continue with her education despite the bureaucratic school rules.
An ecological model is a system of development that connects an individual with his or her environment. Human behavior can be determined by intrapersonal factors, interpersonal relationships, organizational factors, community factors and public policy. Community refers to the different social groups where a person belongs. Many students in the movie have experience violence in one form or another.
This is clearly seen in the way they talk about death and murder and the fact that some of them have joined gangs. One of the students, Emilio, is caught up in the violence and this is seen in the school and outside the school. It also affects the language they use. The students speak the same kind of language irrespective of where they are or whom they are addressing.
Their language only changes when they are reading something from one of the poems. Development is influenced by different environmental levels. These levels are the mesosystem, microsystem, macrosystem and exosystem. The microsystem is the immediate environment where a person has first hand experiences and it will influence how a person grows. This includes classroom and home interactions. One of the students, Durrell, is smart and he shows great potential. The home and the school environment are different for him.
While the teacher recognizes the great potential that he has, the mother believes that the student is better off working than studying. This ultimately affects the way the student sees himself. A mesosystem is a social context that involves the interaction of several microsystems. The home and the school are different environments for Durrell. They are supposed to work together for the betterment of the person but this is not the case for Durrell.
The fact that they are working at opposite extremes of each other shows that they are affecting his growth. The exosystem includes the social contexts that an individual might not interact with frequently although they will still influence him or her. Callie is forced to leave the school in the middle of the semester because of her pregnancy. The school for mothers-to be is an example of an exosystem. Though she does not interact with the school, it still affects her life because she is forced to choose it as an alternative.
The macrosystem is the underlying social and political climate at the level of society. The school administrator, Mr. Grandy, represents the power in the society, a position that he uses to his discretion.
His laws about following the school curriculum as has been set by the board of education do not seem to be working for the students and he opposes all efforts to change it. It affects the students because it denies them the opportunity to learn something else outside the school curriculum. He represents a sort of bureaucracy that may be evident in a section of the population. Apart from teaching in the classroom, the teacher takes on the role of being a cop and a psychologist.
She thinks that she is helping the students when she breaks up the fight in the school. She also tries to shield the students who were fighting from the school authorities. Later, she talks to the students who were involved in the fight and she tries to dig deeper to find out the reason why the students were fighting. As she is asking the student about the fight, the student asks her if she is going to try to psychologize her. Parenting styles determine how a child grows. Parents can use authoritative style, where they are both demanding and responsive.
Parents can also be authoritarian whereby they are very demanding and are no responsive. Another parenting style that parents can adopt is indulgence, whereby the parents are not demanding but they are responsive. Neglectful parents are not demanding and neither are they responsive.

If possible, it would be better for the marketers to use a product in the movie in a positive context rather than associate it with a negative context.
