Still shot from the movie: The Brothers Grimm.

The Brothers Grimm

Their scam works great until the boys have a close encounter with the real thing. Get the movie review and more. »

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.

If you have older family members, it might be interesting to revisit these fairytales and read “between the lines.” Why are these stories so popular with young children? Do you think they promote fear or courage?

From the University of Pittsburgh, here’s a page with links to many resources about the real Grimm brothers: http://www.pitt.edu/~dash/grimm.html
