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.

Although the Baudelaire children do not have an ideal childhood, how do they make the best of their situation? What ability does each one of them contribute to improve their state of affairs?

How are adults portrayed in this movie? Who do the children rely on for help?

What part does reading and research play in both helping and hurting the circumstances of the Baudelaire children?
