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.

One character says, “Twilight? That’s fiction. This is real.” How does this reference to popular culture within a fictional setting work to create a sense of reality? How does this movie differ from Twilight? Why do you think vampires themes are so popular? How long do you think this phenomenon will continue? What are other themes have come and gone?
