    I feel this movie teaches a very valuable lesson to students. I have seen this movie numerous times throughout my high school years. Every time I watch it I get the same message out of it. I feel that Escalante is a teacher that every student would be lucky to have. He is completely dedicated to helping his students pass the calculus test. I do realize that he does demand a lot out of his students but in the end it definitely pays off because they manage to stay focused long enough to learn the material

    There were moments in “Stand and Deliver” that moved me very deeply and other moments so artificial and contrived that I wanted to edit them out‚ right then and there. The result is a film that makes a brave‚ bold statement about an unexpected subject‚ but that lacks the full emotional power it really should have. “Stand and Deliver” tells the story of a high school mathematics teacher who takes a class of losers and potential dropouts and transforms them‚ in the course of one school year‚ into

    After viewing the Stand and Deliver movie‚ the one characteristic I believe the most instrumental and important in Escalante’s success as a teacher was passion. I totally agree with Richards when he stated‚ "Great teachers have a passion for teaching. When a passionate person teaches‚ others feel as though they are communicating the most important truths one could ever hear."

    Representation of Hispanics in Ramon Menendez’s Stand and Deliver Stereotyping describes a value-neutral psychological mechanism that creates categories and enables people to manage the swirl of data presented to them from their environment (“Latino Images” 14). The human mind automatically sorts things in different categories in order to perceive things a certain way by generalizing or stereotyping. Hollywood films stereotype people in different cultures in an attempt to breakdown the types of
