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.

In “Blast from the Past”, Adam seems to be the only person on Earth who is polite and considerate of others. Why do you think there are fewer people like Adam today than thirty years ago? Have things really changed, or do the “good old days” just seem better in our memories? Would a return to some of these values make our world a better place?
