The 2018-19 school year is upon us. The school kids are excited to meet their new classmates, and the teachers are getting ready to share new lessons. This leaves many people asking what impact Hollywood might have on the upcoming school year.
Folks might not realize just how involved Hollywood and the entertainment world get when it comes to the upcoming school year. Maybe 20 years ago, the younger fans probably didn’t see as much influence as kids in school today. In fact, it’s safe to suggest that Hollywood has really defined how to cater to teachers and school kids.
The big studios start off by offering school supplies and starting school drives. The impact the local communities feel is good for the kids and it gives everyone a reminder to start helping out. From there, theaters, bookstores and other resources that touch Hollywood offer supplies and suggestions to get the necessary supplies to the kids for the school year. Most of the time, the supplies are free to parents and teachers. People know how important it is to support the kids to kick off the school year just right!
School kids feel Hollywood’s impact
The one nugget of detail most folks don’t know about is the ongoing resources available to school kids, teachers and parents. The schedule of shows, movies and such continue throughout the year. This means that the way that many studios introduce materials to the kids is by teacher resources. This includes offering up special screenings, teacher packets with worksheets, and even videos teasing the attraction or offering details to help the teachers explain things.
The unique aspect of these teacher resources is that most of the items are free. Sharing ideas, facts and situations with kids who might not otherwise be introduced to them is something very special. Plus, offering materials to teachers means they can teach as they see fit and not worry about spending their own cash. It’s no secret that educators spend their own cash to make the teaching process happen to the best of their ability.
If you think about it, we all owe it to the next generation to help educate them and create interest. Helping with teacher resources is a great way to do it. Plus, Hollywood helps year round, as teachers need supplies in August as well as February. This makes the chance to get educational lessons a yearlong opportunity of learning for those young minds!
