|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.
Slavery becomes a hot political topic in the British Parliament with many legislatures seeming to vote according to their party lines rather than personal conscience. What issues may have a similar effect on current politicians? Are there subjects that should be above party lines?
What costs did the elimination of the slave trade pose for ship owners, the government’s treasury and invested interests? Who else would have had their livelihood threatened? What difficulties would the slaves themselves face?
Persistence leads to change by small degrees. What sacrifices does William Wilberforce make for the cause he believes in? Who else makes similar commitments? What would you be willing to do for a cause you believe in?
