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.

Can you see parallel examples between the story told in Shrek and the injustices done to the Jews and other races by Adolph Hitler during World War II? How does the characterization of Lord Farquaad add to this comparison?
