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.

Has the prospect of living someone else’s life ever seemed inviting to you? Who would you be willing to trade identities with? Would you have any concerns about what they might do while pretending to be you?

Many atrocities and injustices are portrayed in this film. How do the characters respond to these challenges? What could Tom have done with his newfound power and wealth? What would have happened if Myles had not shown kindness? How did Prince Edward’s experience change his understanding of the role of a ruler? What did you learn from their example of worthy character traits?
