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.

The movie quotes from a prayer Dr. Peter Marshall addressed to the Senate in the late 1940s: “Give us a clear vision that we may know where to stand and what to stand for—because unless we stand for something we shall fall for anything.” Do you feel these words hold any wisdom for today? How have society’s philosophies changed over the years since he gave these sermons?

Audio transcripts of some of Dr. Marshall’s sermons are available at a website hosted by his son Peter John Marshall, who followed in his father’s career footsteps. You can listen to them here: http://www.petermarshallministries.com/
