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.

The message of the original Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas was that the real meaning of Christmas had nothing to do with commercialism. How does the marketing and promotion of this movie provide an ironic twist to the original intent?

To find out what Dr. Seuss really said about Christmas, check for the book by the same name at your local library, bookstore, or possibly your own bookshelf.
