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 Australian government was trying to “protect” the mixed-races people “from themselves.” Would it have been right to deny these half-white children a place in the white world? Was it fair to remove these half-aboriginal children from their homes and family? If you were Mr. Neville, how would you have handled this problem?

European settlers displaced indigenous populations in every country they colonized. Could they have done anything differently? What should they do now?
