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.

A wise man in this film states, “Humiliation is a poor teacher for both men and boys.” Why are we tempted to use humiliation as a way of motivating someone to change or understand what they have done wrong? What methods make better teachers?

Why do you think the legend of King Arthur is so enduring? Do you think it is possible to achieve peace without fighting?

The only point of truth in this fictitious film is the existence of a Roman Emperor named Romulus Augustus. You can read more about this young ruler here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romulus_Augustus
