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.

Luther is dared into spending the night in the haunted house. What factors do you think influenced his decision to accept the challenge? Was this an example of facing fear and discovering true potential, or simply buckling to peer pressure? How do you tell the difference between challenges that should be accepted and a poor idea that should be walked away from?

What classic techniques does the movie use to create suspense and fear?
