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.

The Avatar is told he should not kill or injure anyone. What circumstances make this hard for him? What lengths does he go to in order to keep this covenant? Do characters in movies typically keep such promises?

In the world in which they live, each of the characters is told they were born for a reason and must seek their destiny. How do you feel about the concept of “destiny?” Do you believe you have a life mission to find and fulfill?
