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.

How can education empower people? Have you ever considered how your education has helped you gain control of your life and allowed you to direct your future?

What purpose do you feel movies like this provide? Do you think audiences will feel a need to help people in similar situations to Precious, or will they instead feel the situation is overwhelmingly hopeless?
