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.

In one part of the film, Gandhi becomes so principle-driven that he almost kicks his wife out of their home over her refusal to perform a menial task. Are there times when even worthwhile philosophies must be compromised?

“Whenever I despair, I remember that the way of truth and love has always won. There may be tyrants and murderers, and for a time they may seem invincible, but in the end they always fail. Think of it: always.” -Gandhi

Considering Gandhi lived between 1869 and 1948, do you think his words still have relevance for today?
