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 is the Phantom a tragic figure? Do his life experiences make him destined to be one? Who shows compassion to him and how?

The Phantom is a brilliant composer and musical mentor. How does his disfigurement hamper him from using his talents? Is his physical deformity the only handicap that challenges him?

What does Christine learn about love? How do emotions like jealousy, possessiveness and control factor into real feelings of affection?
