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.

How does Alice’s belief in the illusionist change the way he feels about his occupation? How do entertainment trends change over time? What is popular now?

What are the challenges of telling a story without dialogue? How do foreign films differ from movies produced in North America?
