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.

After seeing this film, you may want to compare it to the few available historical facts. You can do so by searching the Internet. One site that offers a “true” view of the first interactions between the Powhatan and the Europeans is the Association for the Preservation of Virginia Antiquities. The official site of the Powhatan Nation also offers a clarification on Pocahontas.
