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.

Although this film romanticizes pirates, what are the realities of life on the ocean? How do the pirates amuse themselves between raids? What would living conditions have been like?

How does The Pirate Captain let his pride determine his decisions? In what ways do youth and adults give in to peer pressure as well?

What does the Queen’s dinner plans on her boat say about the impact of British colonization? Learn more about the life and extinction of the Dodo bird.
