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.

When arguing about his future, a young man reminds his father that it is now the fourteenth century. Why do young people sometimes have trouble listening to those who are older then they are? Does age contribute to wisdom? Do some notions become old-fashioned? How would you handle the differing opinions on each side of the generation gap?

In fairytales, characters usually fall in love very quickly. What qualities about Aurora attract the young stranger? Are they enough for a lasting relationship? What things do you think should be considered when looking for that special someone?
