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.

How does Frank’s expectations for his children contribute to their reluctance to tell him about their present lives?How can parents find the balance between pushing their children to succeed and having unrealistic goals for them?

Although Frank wants to know the truth about his children, how does he react when he gets some hard news about his son? How does the crisis unite this group? How can family members support one another during these types of difficulties?

How can the rapid pace of life, the dependence on technology devices and distance contribute to deteriorating family relations? How can technology be used to build relationships? Do you think actual face-to-face time is important for strengthening family ties?
