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 film, Miss Pettigrew and Joe, who are two oldest characters portrayed, discuss the impending war and how their younger friends, “Don’t remember the last one.” How does life experience change a person’s point of view? What role does perspective play in the different ways people may react to the same situation? Can these various outlooks be helpful in maintaining a balanced society?
