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.

Although Zach is making a game about choices he doesn’t see the connection in his own life. Why is it sometimes easier to see faults in others than in ourselves? Is he justified in his reasons for taking on the extra work at school? What impact does his commitment to Marcus have on his team?

What does he learn about loyalty from his father and his father’s friends? How does his own teammates display loyalty and forgiveness? How do Donald and Phillip express their friendship?

What drives Marcus Bentton’s decisions? How does the desire to be acclaimed color people’s actions? How is this pressure evident in academic, career, financial and social arenas?
