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.

Using her friendship with Jen, Shu Lien enters the house of Governor Yu to try and encourage the thief to return the sword. Why was it important that she retrieve the sword without causing embarrassment to the family? Is there honor in letting someone repair a wrong without shaming them?

Some of the characters in this movie pay a high price for seeking revenge. Do you think the cost, was worth it in the end?
