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.

Wilhelmina claims that the sins of their fathers are waiting to be avenged. Do you think it is fair for someone to be held accountable for something that happened in someone else’s past?

If so, what obligation does that place on the choices you make each day?
