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.

Why is Wesley unhappy despite his seemingly perfect life? What kinds of things contribute to real happiness? What does he discover about himself after he meets Lindsey? How do his goals differ from those of his fiancé?

Do you appreciate the strong moral messages in a film or do you think they distract from the entertainment value of the movie?

Have you ever been compared to a sibling? If so, how did you fare? What are the dangers of comparing children? Are there ever any positive reasons for judging one sibling against another?
