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.

Why were the other students in the classroom reluctant to believe Max’s story about Shark Boy and Lava Girl? Why did Max’s teacher encourage him to make new friends at school?

Max writes down all his dreams in a little journal. Do you have a place you record your dreams? Is there one dream you repeatedly have? What did Max’s dreams help him discover about himself?
