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.

While the train wreck is a high action point of the film, how realistic is it? Would the driver of the truck survive such an impact? Watch the first part of this trailer and see what you think?

How does this film portray the man who offers drugs to the kids? Is he a cool character? What does their response to him say about these young teens? What message does this film make about illegal drug use?

Get ideas for encouraging your kids to make their own movies in this Big Picture article.
