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 was William embarrassed by his father’s stories, while others found them charming or humorous? Why do children see their parents differently than how others see them? Why does their perspective change as they grow older? You may find it interesting to research the lives of some of your progenitors and discover who they are.

Can you recall times when you have recounted an incident and added some extra emphasis for dramatic effect? Is embellishing a story any different than lying?
