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.

What impact does Marty have on the future when he goes back in time? What does he discover about his parents?

If you could change one thing in the past, what would it be? Would you want to know what happens in your future?
