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 you feel about actors, sports figures, musicians and news names that try to retain their stardom by participating in these kinds of activities?

Despite their picture perfect first impression, what kind of challenges did the Tracy family face? What things helped Sam and Sally deal with those problems? How important is good parenting in helping children grow into productive, well-adjusted adults?
