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.

When a magician’s secrets are revealed, the magic disappears. How do they use deception and the art of distraction to keep audiences in the dark? Should some secrets be preserved? How do the padlocks on the Pont de l’Archevêché bridge in Paris represent secrets?

Who is deceived in this story? Do you like the deception of a magic show or do you prefer to know how each of the tricks is performed?

Is white-collar crime justified if the victims are corrupt themselves? Who has the right to decide when it is okay to steal from the rich to give to the poor? Do the characters’ arrogant attitudes make them more or less endearing? Does it take a certain kind of persona to be a successful magician?

Want to become a magician? Here are a few easy magic tricks you can learn.
