Parenting in the Movies:Examining Responsibilities in Modern American Films

Learners use films to identify the characteristics of a good parent. In groups, they research the different types of parenting methods used during colonial times, the Civil War and the Civil Rights movement. As a class, they develop their own definition of a good parent and compare and contrast their own parents with those seen in the films. They are encouraged to examine the characteristics shown in the film to become more responsible parents.
