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.

Graham Hess says there are two kinds of people; those who believe in a higher being and those who believe in chance. To which group do you belong? Would a serious personal plight or the threat of impending devastation make you change from one to the other?

How did Graham’s inability to face or forgive Ray Reddy contribute to his feelings about God?

The occurrence of crop circles gained lots of media coverage during the 1970’s and 80’s. While they are no longer a top news story, sightings of these interesting designs continue to be recorded. You can follow their history at http://www.lovely.clara.net/history.html.
