How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

A man threatens to kill a boy’s associates and friends on Facebook. Are there dangers linked with friending someone on social networking sites? Is this a realistic concern people should have?

Nathan feels like he doesn’t fit in with his peers. Do many children and teens feel this way at some point in their lives? Does the script do an adequate job of supporting Nathan’s notion?

Is it uncommon for children or teens to wish they had a secret identity? How does this same script play out in movies like Spy Kids where they discover their parents are international spies or in The Princess Diaries where the main character finds out she is really the daughter of royalty? Why do people sometimes fancy themselves as someone special? Is there harm in entertaining these fantasies?
