|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.
What does Hugo discover about the purpose of life? What difference does he make in the lives of the people he meets? How does he help Isabelle find her purpose? What is it?
Isabelle claims she has only had adventures through books. What effect does reading have on her and her vocabulary?
Clocks are everywhere in this production. What is the significance of time in this story? What events happen because someone is at the right place at the right time? How are some characters stuck in the moment?
Does an understanding of film history change the way we look at movies? How did those early inventions transform the world of entertainment? What other “passing fancies” have become ingrained in society. Check out this footage of Le Voyage dans la lune shot in 1902.
