The Breakfast Club
The film, which takes place in March 1984 at Shermer High School, describes the experience of five students who are brought together to serve an eight-hour Saturday detention. They are seated in the school library by the deputy principal, Mr. Vernon, who tells them they may not speak, move or sleep. They are given the task of each producing a 1000-word essay on who they think they are.
Discuss the following questions as related to the group in “The Breakfast Club” keeping in mind the issues discussed in the class presentation on groups:
Most support groups identify what the members have in common. The individuals in the “breakfast club” at first don’t look as if they share any problems, and yet we learn they do. How are the problems of all of the group members actually very similar?
Describe the role and status of each group member in The Breakfast Club (not the name they assigned themselves, but rather roles taken on by group members as described in the class presentation or in Hepworth.) How are these roles similar/different from the role and status each member holds outside the group?
How do the dynamics between the members of “The Breakfast Club” demonstrate Tuckman’s stages of group development – forming, storming, norming, performing, adjourning? Discuss where in the film you see these stages demonstrated.
How does participation in this group help each member to grow by the end of the movie?
