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.

How is alcohol consumption portrayed in this movie? Does making a joke of Captain Haddock’s drinking problem seem to lessen the seriousness of it? What are the withdrawal symptoms that he experiences? How do these relate to real life?

What characteristics does Tintin have that make him a good reporter?

The movie is based on three of Hergé‘s comic books:The Crab with the Golden Claws, The Secret of the Unicornand Red Rackham’s Treasure. How closely does this movie’s plot follow that of the books?

Herge first began publishing The Adventure of Tintin in 1929. Other comic books in his series can be found here: http://www.tintinologist.org/
