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 does Amir’s father consider theft to be the one great sin? How does he connect it to other crimes?

How does Amir’s personality differ from Hassan’s? How does Amir’s father feel about his son’s interest in writing? What strengths does each boy possess? How does Hassan deal with his position in life?

How do the virtues of forgiveness, atonement and resilience play into the film’s script?
