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.

How does Coach Warner continue to mentor Jim long after the athlete has graduated? What role can a good coach play in the development of a player’sabilities on and off the field?

How does Jim’s obsession with news reports reflect his self-esteem? What happens when he begins to care more about what the reporters say than he does about the people who love him?

What extra challenges does he face because of his racial heritage? Has that changed in athletic competition’s today?
