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.

While it often works in fairytales, waiting for a “prince to come” and “make all your dreams come true,” is not a very proactive approach to life’s problems. What things might Cinderella do herself to improve her situation? Are there things in your life that you are waiting for someone else to fix? Is there anything you could do to change your circumstances?

Although Cinderella is in an abusive situation, for young ones not so hard-done-by the story might imply that work is a punishment, and that living happily ever after means a life of leisure. Do you believe this is true?
