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 do musicals affect the way a story is presented on film? Would it be more difficult to present a lighthearted story about a murderer using standard dramatic techniques?
