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 do you think Disney has opted to include a more conventional story and structure to this new version of Alice in Wonderland compared to their 1951 animation? Are movie-going audiences any different today than they were in the 1950s?

Lewis Carroll (the pseudonym of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson) is best known for authoring the books Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. This movie borrows heavily from his poem Jabberwocky, which appeared in his second Alice story. You can find his novels (first published in 1865 and 1872 respectively) at your local library.
