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 Moses presents the Ten Commandments to the children of Israel, he tells them, “There can be no freedom without the law.” How are laws and freedom connected? Can you ever be assured of one without the other?

To distinguish fact from fiction, you can find the account of Moses in the Holy Bible’s book of Exodus.
