In the high school shown in this movie, girls who want to be popular must be sexually promiscuous. The result is emotional damage to everyone and a raging syphilis epidemic. She's Too Young is useful in getting kids talking and thinking about high school social systems, peer pressure, and the difficulties that parents have in dealing with sexually active children.
The movie was obviously made by adults to show students the dangers of STDs. However, the film's transparent attempts to be "with it" and to drive home the STD message make it seem a bit preachy. The best way to approach the movie is to ask the class to critique how the film portrays high school students and high school social systems. This will lead students to talk about the social system in their own high school. The TWM Learning Guide to She's Too Young shows teachers how to use the film to maximum benefit.
The Guide also contains discussion questions and written exercises.

Learning Guide Excerpt
To give you a sense of how our Learning Guides can be used by teachers to develop lesson plans, and by parents to supplement school curriculum or for homeschooling, we have set out below a discussion question from the Learning Guide to She's Too Young.
12. What does the incident of the near rape of Hannah demonstrate?
Suggested Response: Rape and attempted rape are terrible violations of the person being attacked. For that reason, they are felonies punishable by years in prison. However, the boy who tried to rape Hannah was accepted by the group and Nick did not stop him. This shows that when there is no respect for women, criminals will take advantage of the situation.
