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.

After returning his son to his ex-wife, Pete asks, “What’s better, the two of us getting divorced, or trying to stay together for him?” Is divorce the best answer? Do you think children can still benefit even if a couple has to put their differences aside to keep the family together?

Lanie puts a lot of emphasis on her good looks. Is that the only criteria for being a TV reporter? What qualifications do you think a good journalist needs?

Lanie is counseled to live each day as if it were her last, because one day it will be. How do you feel about this advice?
