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.

Both Shane and his father are saddened by the loss of their uncle and brother but have a difficult time communicating it. How does each of them deal with their grief? What helps them move on with their lives?

Connor takes time to point out his son’s good qualities to him. Why is it important for parents and adults to acknowledge the abilities of youth? How does Dewey change the way that Shane feels about himself?
