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.

At the start of the movie, Peter La Fleur is portrayed as a guy who can’t manage even basic aspects of his life. Yet, after being compared with Ben Stiller’s highly exaggerated and unrealistic character, Peter seems quite normal. How are our perceptions of people skewed when we make similar comparisons in reality?

The best part of Dodgeball is the game itself! Check this site for information on what is believed to be the oldest schoolyard pastime: www.dodgeballusa.com
