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 the film, John says, ? The flowers of Yorkshire are like women. Every stage is more beautiful, with the last being the most glorious.? How do you feel about aging and its effect on beauty?

Annie and Chris feel completely clean about their participation in the WI Calendar, but when they are asked to bare all for a soap commercial, Annie says she feels dirty. Why? Was there any difference between the two activities?
