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.

To gain a greater appreciation for this film, check out the elaborate “Teacher’s Guide” produced by Disney Studios located here (and yes… kids can read it too!): National Treasure Teacher’s Guide
