|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.
Do you detect any stereotypes in this movie? How are mothers depicted? How are males viewed? How do both genders contribute to society? In reality, do you think there are roles and responsibilities that can only be fulfilled by one gender?
When Milo lists the most important things a mother does, the first thing he states is, "She takes me to Disneyland!" Why do you think this was the top item on his list? (Hint: Check the production company that made this film.) How do endorsements like this differ from outright commercials? How often do you hear or see similar advertisements in other movies?
