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 many movies can you recall where Mafia characters are played for laughs? Why do you think these characters have been so popular? How does this humorous portrayal affect your view of organized crime?

When you see stereotypical characters in a movie, try reversing the roles—in this case, a wealthy African-American family that has a poor Italian boy wanting to marry their daughter. Is this difficult to imagine? Why?
