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.

Why have the 1950’s typical slang phrases of calling a woman a dame, a doll, or a dog, fallen out of favor? Are the expressions we have chosen to replace those phrases with today, any better or any less demeaning?

What qualities did Marty and Clara see in each other that made Marty suggest, “Maybe neither of us are such a dog as we think we are?” What traits would you consider important to the longevity of a relationship?
