|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.
E.B. slathers on the guilt after Fred hits him with the car. Why does he resort to this behavior? Do parents and their children ever use this tactic to get what they want from one another? In what situations do they employ it?
How are parents portrayed in this film? Do they have reasonable concerns about their children’s career goals or lack thereof? What responsibilities are Fred and E.B. refusing to take?
How is the villain depicted in this story? Does giving the character a foreign accent make him seem more evil? What other stereotypes are used to distinguish a bad guy in a movie?
What is your favorite Easter treat? Will you feel the same way about jellybeans after watching this film?
