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.

Although racing is important to Speed’s father, what does he say means more to him? How can a person balance business and family interests?

What effect does corporate intervention have in the sport of car racing? How does it influence the outcome of the races and the development of new technology?

According to http://www.wiki.answers.com, the Indianapolis 500 is the only race where drivers drink milk after winning a race.
