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.

Dave uses science to help him fight the evil Morgana. How is science depicted in this story? Are any of these portrayals inaccurate?

What generational differences do Dave and Balthazar experience? What are they able to learn from one another?

Can teasing have a long-term impact on a child? How is Dave affected by his classmates’ ridicule?
