|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 the depiction of Western superiority different in this movie compared to, The King And I (1956 musical) or the 1946 movie Anna And The King Of Siam?
This film explores the King’s character in more depth. How do you feel about the King’s insistence that he appear to be in control and not to be taking Anna’s advice? How do you feel about his decision in the Tuptin affair? Did Anna’s actions have any bearing on his choice?
