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.

Eric Liddell must choose between trying for his Olympic dream or following his conviction to honor the Sabbath day. After the race is over and everyone goes home, do you think it is easier to live with missing an opportunity to fulfill a dream or turning your back on your convictions?

Abrahams feels that his Olympic race is 10 seconds to justify his existence. Although competing at this level is an admirable achievement, does Abrahams puts too much emphasis on that one moment? Compared to a whole lifetime, how important is one event?

Although it is not mentioned in the movie, both Liddell and Abrahams won other medals at the 1924 Games. Liddell won a bronze in the 200-meter and Abrahams won silver in the 4x100 race.
