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.

Instead of the usual storyline about scary monsters, this script is about scary humans. What new perspective does this give to the idea of preconceptions about others?

Are the Count’s worries about his daughter justified? How does he show his love for her? In what ways does he try to protect her? Why is trust important in a parent/child relationship?

Would you like to backpack around the world? What is the first place you would want to visit?
