|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.
Why didn’t Ali want to tell his father that he had lost his sister’s shoes? What do you think his father would have done? How did his father’s attitude toward Ali change after they spent the day together looking for yard work?
Were the adults in Ali’s world interested in hearing about Ali’s problems? Do you (as a child) ever feel adults don’t care about what you have to say? What can a child do to help an adult understand that what they are saying is important?
Ali’s family is obviously poor, but what were some of the good things you noticed about his family? What was the one “modern” appliance that they did have? [A television.] What does this tell you about television and its influence on the world?
