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.

Pops Romano’s lawyer states that his client is only guilty of having a vowel at the end of his name. In this case Pops is guilty of illegal activities, but what did the lawyer mean by his comment? Are people sometimes judged solely on their name, looks or ethnic background? Have you seen evidence of that in the media, or your own community?

Corky’s mother was considered the “glue that held the family together” before she died. Does your family have someone who holds the family together or does everyone participate? Why do you think Corky’s father sent him away to school after his mother died?
