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.

What do you think made Marilyn Monroe the star she became. How do you feel about her personal problems? Why does fame often exact such a toll on the lives of those who enjoy it? Can you think of others who are or have struggled with this challenge?

If you could meet your favorite celebrity, what would you do? What places would you want to take them? What makes that person so interesting to you?

The real Colin Clark wrote a book about his relationship with Marilyn Monroe. Learn more about this film legend at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marilyn_Monroe
