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 does Teddy Roosevelt mean when he tells Larry, “Some men are born great, others have greatness thrust upon them”? Which of these two statements describes Larry? Which describes Teddy? How can you apply this message in your life?

Larry is reminded that if people don’t learn from the past, them may make the same mistakes in the future. What does Larry learn from the past? How does that change his future? Although the movie is an exaggerated example of this council, how is it true in real life? What lessons can you learn from history?
