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.

Why do you think so few films have been made about Canada’s involvement in various wars? Are there other places where this military history can be found? How does the knowledge or an ignorance of these sacrifices and achievements affect a feeling of patriotism?
