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.

One of the arguments between a married daughter and her spouse is over the proper type of discipline to use on their out of control son. How do the philosophies they site epitomize the child psychology of their day? Why do you think fads exist in methods of rearing families? How do you feel about Mr. Hobbs’ snide comment that, “In all the history of the world, there has never been a child that was brought up right!”
