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 characteristics does Santiago have that make so many people willing to plead his case? How do these same qualities eventually affect the people around him?

What advice does Santiago give to his teammate? Why do you think the two players respond so differently to their opportunities to play soccer/football?
