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.

Alex Rover experiences all kinds of adventures in her imagination. What motivates her to take on real challenges? What does she learn about herself? How can service help a person forget his or her own problems?

What does it mean to be the hero of your own life story? How does facing fear build courage? What happens when a person refuses to deal with their apprehensions?

Agoraphobia is a fear of being away from a safe place. For more information go to http://www.uihealthcare.com/topics/mentalemotionalhealth/ment3140.html
