|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.
In the movie, Frodo despairs over the fateful events that have forced him to become the ring bearer. The wise wizard reminds him that no one gets to decide their circumstances, but they can choose what they will do with the lot they are given. How could that counsel apply in your life?
The Elf Queen preaches that even the smallest person can change the course of the future. Do you agree with her?
Director Peter Jackson’s past cinematic achievements have been in the slasher/thriller genre. Do you think his background had any effect on his film adaptation of Tolkien’s literary masterpiece?
Don’t forget The Lord Of The Rings trilogy, and The Hobbit can be found in most libraries. Encouraging your children to read the books, or reading them together as a family, may be a good alternative for those who admire Tolkien’s tales of good versus evil but are concerned about the film’s content.
