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.

Tyler and his friends are convinced the Maryland School of the Arts is an institution for rich kids. How does that feeling contribute to their lack of respect for the school’s property? What was the real cost of their act of vandalism?

What does Director Gordon mean when she tells Tyler he needs more than just talent? What qualities do you think are essential for success?
