|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 did Tim’s fear of the Boogeyman start? Was his father’s method of helping him overcome his fear a productive one? What stories or urban myths did you hear as a child that made you afraid? How do you do to deal with your fears? Count, sing, giggle, cover your head with the blanket?
