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.

Ben and his friend Andrew are involved in a night game called “Killer,” that involves shooting a designated person with a squirt gun. How safe do you think this game is considering the number of real guns that may be out on the streets? Do you think games like Killer are harmless fun or potentially dangerous?

Eliot and his son Ben have a very different relationship than Anna and her daughter Jenny. What do you think contributed to that difference? Do you think the social and economical standing of the parents are to blame? How can teens and parents maintain positive relationships even when a divorce is involved?
