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.

Societies with class systems restrict what you can become simply because you were born into the “wrong” family. Was William justified in falsifying his ancestry so he could achieve his dream?
