Twitter Suggests Movie Essentials for Kids

Talking with my kid (tween) during the extended stay-at-home order, I realize that there are some major gaps in his education. He hasn’t seen a number of classic movies and is missing the full meaning of references/memes/jokes in popular culture and parental goofiness.

I asked my Twitter friends what films they consider cultural essentials. Below is an unsorted list of the movies that were suggested. As I think about organizing the list, it might be worth dividing into elementary, middle and high school sections.

Leave your suggestions for additions or deletions in the comments or send me an impassioned tweet @DesignMakeTeach.
