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 does learning to control appetites and emotions contribute to growing up? Like the sea serpent in this movie, how can our fears sometimes grow out of control?

How does Lucy and Edmund’s obsession with things they think they don’t have (i.e. power and physical beauty), hamper their own success? How does it keep them from developing their own talents?

Walden Media, the co-producer of the Narnia movies, has brought other family friendly titles to the big screen. Michael Flaherty, the company’s founder, explains the goals of the studio in a speech presented to students and aspiring filmmakers at a US university.

Even after finding himself in a strange land, Eustace continues to be obnoxious. How realistic is this portrayal? What other reactions might someone have when suddenly exposed to a new and frightening experience?
