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.

In the beginning of the movie Aladdin steals from food vendors, and with a Robin Hood like attitude, even shares his bread with some starving children. Yet when he suddenly has the power to whatever he wants, he never thinks to repay those he stole from or to improve the situation in his country. Why? If you could have anything you desired, what would you wish for?

Translations of the Arabian Nights, on which this story is based, can be found in your local library.
