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.

Vic and Watts’ mutual love for mechanics and kart racing allowed them to build their love for each other. What activities do parents and children share in your family? How can hobbies, sports, or other endeavors help to build a relationship?

Deputy Jenna West is portrayed as a caring police officer. How was Jenna still able to protect her community while at the same time improving Watts’ life? How does this character differ from police portrayals in other movies? How can negative stereotypes of authority figures influence our impressions of these people?
