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 was it important for captors of POWs to keep any news of the progress of the war away from their prisoners? How can hope and attitude affect the strength of a people?

Do you think it’s important for upcoming generations to see and hear these stories? How might factual depictions of the atrocities of war help our society?
