|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.
SpongeBob SquarePants is a highly optimistic individual. Do you think it’s possible to have too much optimism? Why do you think he chose to save his boss, even though he wasn’t given the promotion?
Confused as to what you want to do when you grow up? Stephen Hillenburg the creator/director/writer/producer of SpongeBob in TV and movie form is a good example of how sometimes one thing leads to another. Originally he graduated with a degree in natural science with an emphasis in marine biology. Prior to becoming a filmmaker, he worked as an exhibit preparer and science educator for kids, where he says he had the chance to see how enamored kids are with undersea life. Later he graduated with a master’s degree in experimental animation.
