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 Redmond family has endured a past tragedy. Why does this incident play a part in Frank’s decision to swim the channel? How does the experience affect the way Ron treats his children? Why can the past have such a profound influence on the future?

Why does Joan feel honesty is so important in a marriage? In spite of that, what secrets has she kept? How can avoiding the truth negatively impact relationships?
