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 Ben’s mother willing to give for her children? Why do her boys not always appreciate what she is trying to do? How does time affect the way they see her efforts? In what ways is she rewarded for her sacrifices?

What things does Ben have to do for himself? Who does he turn to for support? How hard does he have to work?
