Shrek The Third

While some men dream of fame, fortune and power, Shrek (voice of Mike Myers) has his heart set on living out his days obscurely in the swamp he calls home. So when it looks like his royal father-in-law (John Cleese) might croak, which would put him next in line for the throne, the ogre nearly turns green (okay, more green than usual). In order to avoid such an unwelcome future, Shrek gets help form his faithful friends Donkey (Eddie Murphy) and Puss in Boots (Antonio Banderas). Get the movie review and more. »

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 Shrek so nervous about becoming a parent? How does his own experience with his father affect the way he feels? What does he learn from his interaction with Artie?

What impact do the students at Artie’s school have on him? Why is it important to believe in oneself despite the opinions of others? Does he learn to accept his role in life?

In what ways is Fiona different than the other princesses? How does she react to Prince Charming’s plans to take over the kingdom? How does she meet challenges in her life?
