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.

Rev. Scott’s ideology is not always appreciated by his listeners. How do you feel about God? Do you think he cares about individuals? Do you believe you can call on the help of a superior being, or do you feel a need to rely solely on your own strengths?

How do the various members of the group work through their trails? What things are important to them? Why do you think some of them begin to help each other while others do not? What sacrifices would you be willing to make for the benefit of others?
