This paper critiques the 1988 movie "Stand and Deliver", examining the many roles of Jaime Escalantes as a teacher and applying Piaget's and Vygotsky's theories to the character.

From the Paper:

"In the acclaimed film "Stand and Deliver", the story of high school math teacher Jaime Escalantes serves as an excellent case study of teaching techniques that produce phenomenal results. Escalantes' methods illustrated that Piaget's theories about how children learn were correct. Piaget asserted that children construct their own knowledge in response to their experiences and are capable of learning many things without adult intervention, being intrinsically motivated to learn, without external rewards to motivate them."
