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.

Why was it easier for Cathy to talk to Raymond than it was her friends? Why do people sometimes find it easier to confide in strangers in an office waiting room or grocery line? Have you ever had that experience?

Cathy had the opportunity to discover how it feels to be the only one in a room when she went to the restaurant with Raymond. Have you ever felt what it is like to be a minority whether racially, religiously or otherwise? Did it change your perspective?

People and situations are not always as they appear on the outside. How important is it to have an understanding of circumstances before passing judgment? Why do people often try and keep up a fade when dealing with others?
