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.

Despite his belief in the ideals that he espouses to his students, how was Hundert tested in applying those principles to his own life? What caused him to waver and was he justified in making special amendments for Sedgewick? Were his concessions to his personal morals rewarded in the end?

Fundraising for education was an issue even for the board members and staff of this prestigious school. How did that need affect the board’s choice of a new head dean? What statement do you think the director was trying to make about the role of fundraising in our educational institutions?

What was meant by the comment that life is not determined by a single failure or success?
