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.

Mike discovers that dreams don’t always come true, even if you really want it and are willing to work hard. How does he adjust his expectations in life and find a new way to achieve his goals? How does he deal with disappointment?

Mike is repeatedly told as a child and as a college student that he “doesn’t belong.” Although this negative comment is very hurtful, how does Mike choose to respond to it? How does he use it to overcome challenges and develop a resilient and optimistic outlook? How can parents help their children deal with similar negative comments from peers?

What consequences does Sully face his choices? Does a person’s appearance or outward bravado sometimes misrepresent how he or she feels inside?

What does the OK team learn about each other’s strengths? What is each member able to contribute? How do their actions influence the Scare program’s director?
