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.

What decisions does Stacy make that differ from many of the other team members? What effect do his choices have on his future?

What role do you think sponsors should play in the world of sport? Are there some companies that should not be allowed to support a team?

How were extreme skateboarders perceived in the early days of the sport? Has that attitude changed or not? How do board manufacturers promote the sport nowadays?
