In this episode we evaluate Jack Black’s character Dewey Finn (aka Ned Schneebly) the movie School of Rock (2003) .
In the film, Dewey Finn (Jack Black) poses as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school. He decides to toss aside conventional curriculum and teach the kids how to be a rock band. Things get tricky when it’s discovered that Dewey isn’t who he claimed to be and the parents disapprove of the rock and roll class.
In our discussion we touch on using external motivation in the classroom, the power of arts education, and swearing at school.
