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.

Like many parents today, Queen Elinor is eager to give her daughter advantages she didn’t have. What things do you have that your parents did not? What are the basics that children need to succeed? What do Elinor and Merida discover they really need from one another? What is important when it comes to building strong parent/child relationships?

In the past arranged marriages served as a way to build alliances between countries. What was the benefit of these kinds of pairings? What advantage did it have for the countries involved? What were the disadvantages? Is there still a role for arranged marriages? Would you want your parents to find a partner for you?

Highland games, held in Scotland and other countries, pit competitors against one another in numerous athletic competitions including the caber toss, stone put and Scottish hammer throw.
