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.

When all other adults fail them, whom do DJ and Chowder turn to as a source of wisdom? What attributes does this character have that make the boys believe he is so smart? How accurate is their assessment? What traits do you associate with intelligence?

What would you do if you got stuck with a babysitter like Zee? Who could you turn too? Why do you think DJ doesn’t look into any of these options?
