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.

Davy Crockett became a legend during his lifetime, partly due to the stories that grew about his life on the frontier. How does Davy react to his fame as portrayed in this movie? What are some of the challenges of being well known? Is it easy to live up to the beliefs of others?

Despite the horrible odds, the men and women of the Alamo held their ground for their beliefs. What things would you consider important enough to give your life for? What freedoms and opportunities do you enjoy because of the sacrifices of others?

Historians have collected information on the siege of the Alamo including personal accounts recorded by the participants and survivors. To learn more about the events and people involved, go to: http://www.thealamo.org/alamo_in_1836.htm.
