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.

In what ways does Will show empathy for his classmates? Do you think his religious upbringing contributes to his compassionate nature?

How does the film build sympathy for Lee’s character? While some of his actions might be understandable, what are the consequences of letting his actions go unpunished? Why does he say he’s better off without parents?

What are the social structures of the different peer groups in this movie? How do students’ standings change depending on whom they are with?
