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 didn’t Harry reveal himself when he was helping the injured Jack? How might Jack have responded if he had known it was his friend? Is it important to sometimes do things without seeking recognition or applause?

Abou Fatma seemed to think that taking care of Harry was a responsibility given to him from God. Are there things in your life that you feel are your duty to carry out? What would you be willing to sacrifice in order to achieve those things?

Although Harry was afraid to fight in the Sudan, he was willing to head out in the desert on his own? What was different about his motivations in both situations? What part does personal belief play in having courage?
