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.

Despite our relatively low grades in the content areas, this film deals with very mature topics. Parents of teens interested in seeing this film would be well advised to view it with them, and then be prepared to discuss the subject of spiritual possession.
