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.

What are some actual instances when the members of the Baker family help each other? What examples can you think of where they criticize and speak negatively of each other?

Why are parents often portrayed as incompetent in movies? Do mothers or fathers fall into that stereotype most frequently?

For more information on the original family this premise is based upon, check this page: http://gilbrethnetwork.tripod.com/front.html.
