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.

Mr. Harrison lived with some nagging doubts. He also chose to keep secrets from Jessica. How did his fears and lack of honesty interfere with the relationship he shared with his daughter?

Jim was very determined to capture the mob of wild brombies, even though his father and Spur cautioned him against this course of action. What did his stubborn determination cost him? Was he right to keep trying?
