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.

Would you want to possess Cris’s ability to see into the future? How might things change if you were continually able to hone your decisions based on the next couple of minutes? How might it make your life more difficult?
