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.

Bastian is being bullied by classmates who steal his money and force him into a dumpster. What can a child do in such a situation? To find more information about appropriate ways to dealing with bullies, check out the many website resources that can be found by searching for “Bullies” on Google.com

While the movie’s storybook section makes a strong statement regarding the importance of a healthy imagination, Bastian’s father criticizes his son for not facing reality and responsibility. Do you think it is important to find a balance between these two worlds?
