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.

Many people in this movie (and in the real world) believe that money is the measure of a person’s worth. Do you agree with that statement? What are some examples to support your side of the argument? Are some individuals and their contributions to society underrated? What worthwhile efforts are people involved in that do not have monetary remuneration?

Why does Beane refuse to watch his own team play? Why are superstitions so common in sports? What does the Boston Red Sox coach mean when he says the first man through always gets bloody?

How does Beane’s responsibility as a father influence his decisions?
