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 do you see as Jane’s motivations for falling in love with Mr. Rochester? Does he deserve her forgiveness? Would the situation be different if it took place in the present?

How does starting the narrative in the middle of the story change the focus of the plot? Do you like this creative decision?
