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.

Mrs. Walker feels very strongly that her daughter should not believe in fairy tales or myths. If you enjoyed this movie, it is a safe bet that you don’t completely agree with her. What purpose or role do you feel these stories or characters should play?

This film (like many fairy tales) may imply that wishing for something, and believing hard enough, is all that is required to make dreams come true. Why isn’t that true in real life?
