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.

After Gulliver is caught in his lies, does he change his ways? Why does he worry about letting the little people know who he really is? Does he do much to benefit them?

Does Gulliver experience any consequences for his plagiarism? What might happen in a real newsroom? What impact might this practice have on a student?

The Bermuda Triangle is a region of the ocean where many mysterious events have supposedly happened. The man who rents a boat to Gulliver has an explanation for the stories. What is it? What do you think might be behind the enigmas?
