I chose The Breakfast Club because it is a classic movie that I never get tired of. This movie deals with five students in high school who are all in a Saturday detention. The faculty member is cruel to them and they just try to have fun while serving detention for eight hours on a Saturday. They do not know each other, but by the time detention is over, they all leave knowing that they are not like their parents. This movie has six main characters, all of who are either in high school or teach in school.
The episode “Back to school”, The school season has begun and each of the children is having a different perspective on the school they attended. Cliff and Clair, nevertheless, are excited they are getting control over their house during the daytime. In the episode of “Back to School,” The Cosby show campaigned against the common gender stereotype being televised on television, and challenge the racial stereotypes being orchestrated by African American families in the media. The show redesigned the depiction of male and female roles in a televised household. Cliff Huxtable defines four basic elements of gender stereotypes which are personality traits, domestic behaviors, occupations, and physical appearance ("Gender roles and Stereotypes.
In the movie, The Breakfast Club, five high school students spend their Saturday detention together. The popular girl Claire Standish, the athlete Andrew Clark, the nerd Brian Johnson, the outcast Allison Reynolds, and the rebellious delinquent John Bender must put aside their differences to survive their detention with their assistant principal, Mr. Vernon. While in detention, they are told to write about “who they really are” in one thousand words. Throughout the day, they reveal their struggles involving their cliques and their home lives. As the movie progresses, the audience finds out the reason each teen is in detention which brings up a discussion about who they really are.
COMMUNICATION THEORY INDIVIDUAL TASK: MOVIE REVIEW -THE BREAKFAST CLUB- Synopsis Claire Standish “The Princess”; Brian Johnson “The Brain”; Andrew Clark “The Athlete”; John Bender “The Criminal” and Allison Reynolds “The Basket Case” were shown entering fictional Shermer High School on a Saturday for detention. During their eight-hour detention period, the students were not allowed to do anything besides describing themselves in a 1000 words essay as assigned by Mr. Vernon, the school’s disciplinary principal. While Mr. Vernon was away, John unscrewed the door of the library which made it impossible for him to supervise from his office. The students could then tease, sleep and even argue. They planned to ditch detention after lunch time but failed.
Thus, whilst slightly unconventional, Calpurnia has a distinct role in teaching the Finch children respect and responsibility. In conclusion, Atticus Finch and Calpurnia are contrasting characters with the same purpose in To Kill a Mockingbird. Atticus maintains a fair, wise character throughout the novel, in comparison to Calpurnia's cogent, blunt personality. What brings them together is how they set the correct example for and give life lessons to Jem and Scout. This is evident in multiple scenes throughout the novel, and helps develop the deeply-rooted respect in between them, showing that even those with contrasting ideas and characteristics are capable of making the same, positive effects on others.
John Hughes’ 1985 movie, The Breakfast Club, offers uncountable examples of the ideologies of interpersonal communication. Five high school students: Allison, the kook, Brian, the brain, John, the criminal, Claire, the princess, and Andrew, the jock, are required to devote the day in Saturday detention. At the end of the day, they discover that they have more in mutual than they ever grasped. I will begin by choosing a scene from the movie and using it to explain what interpersonal communication is. The interpersonal transaction I chose to isolate was the scene where we see Bender and Claire going through each other’s wallet and purse.
Only five students were present at the beginning of the nighttime class; therefore, I chose the scene with Messieurs Richard and Moncharmin buying the Opera House. Four other students arrived late to class. The tardy students were three men and a girl, so I let them perform as Christine, Raoul, Erick, and Philippe. A final student

Collaborating is a strategy is used in a I win, you win Situation. According to Patterson James “ The problem-solving or collaboration strategy is usually the best approach to win-win negations and the problem- solving strategy is usually the best way to cut through conflict. Make a decision and work toward win-win deals (page 41).
Looks, grades, and friends separate these students, therefore creating a divide between them before they even have an opportunity to know one another for who they truly are. The message revealed in this film is clear and simple. Despite their outside differences, they all deal with the same hardships and insecurities growing up. Ultimately displaying how people who seem to come from different worlds are more alike in the end. The Breakfast Club depicts the characters ' fears, hopes, and dreams while asking the question, who are they?
Similarly, Raphaela appreciates Ruth’s welcome to the school, as being new is difficult for her. At a school with distorted hierarchy, emotional support is crucial.
