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 audiences have grown to love the character of Jack Sparrow? What makes an underdog personality easier to relate to?

The classic tall ship, The Bounty, was utilized once again in this movie. It was originally built for a 1960s version of Mutiny on the Bounty, starring Marlin Brando. For more information on this important craft, visit http://www.tallshipbounty.org/.
