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 does the community of Bathtub support one another? Why do they continue to live in the area despite the dangers of flooding?

What are the challenges of being a single parent? Do you agree with Wink’s parenting approach?
