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.

Are any consequences shown for the young man who drives recklessly? Who, besides the Abbate family, would be impacted by this tragedy?

How does each of the family members grieve? In what ways does the community offer support? Why is the process different for everyone?

How do you feel about organ donation? What difference does that make in this movie? Learn more about this life-saving gift.
