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.

What is the responsibility of the referees to maintain a safe playing environment? Would the excessively rough hits portrayed in this movie be allowed on a real high school football field?

What did the team learn about winning? What did Coach Gaines say was the difference between winning and losing? Do you agree with his analysis?

What are other examples of fanatical fans? Is their presence an attraction or distraction? Is this a just portrayal of all sports enthusiasts?
