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 the old woman of the village help the younger tribe members develop certain qualities? What things can you learn from an older person that would help you in your life?

Many stories have an orphan character. How does that circumstance elicit sympathy for the character? What other orphan characters can you think of in movies?
