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.

What does Dr. McCarthy mean when he tells Kyle he is hurt but not broken? What part does attitude have in helping individuals deal with setbacks in life? Can injured pride sometimes be more debilitating than physical injuries?

How does Sawyer’s interest in Winter change his desire to learn? How can having a vision of what you want to achieve help motivate a person in their educational pursuits?

Visit the Clearwater Marine Aquarium website to see actual footage of Winter’s rescue and keep tabs on her and the other animals with the center’s live cam.
