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.

When Chick was young, he made assumptions regarding his mother’s decision to leave his father. How can traumatic events during our childhood shape who we become as adults? What methods and tools can we use to overcome the wounds we may have endured while we were young?

Despite his criticism, Chick’s mother continues to love and sacrifice for her son. How does this realization help him to let go of the past and change his future?
