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 did playing the game of football do to help the students overcome their prejudices toward each other? Can you think of other activities that may help people overcome their differences and begin working together?

Once the students on the football team understood the importance of respecting each other regardless of race or color, they had a difficult time accepting the intolerance of the other students and their parents. How did they begin to change the attitudes held by the community of Alexandria? Were their tactics ever violent?
