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.

Considering the mistreatment Shiloh was facing, do you think that Marty should have returned him to Judd? Is animal abuse worse than stealing? Do two wrongs make a right?

Judd quotes from the Bible while attempting to justify the harsh treatment of his animals. To explain the practice of spanking, some parents also quote scripture: “Spare the rod, spoil the child.” How does your family feel about that kind of punishment?
