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.

Friends and family offer Ryan advice as he faces the pressure of playing baseball, including taking pride in what he does even if his achievements are small, and never giving up on what he wants. How well do you feel he follows their counsel? Does the ending of the film show determination or more abandonment?

Characters in this film are constantly drinking. What effect can this behavior have on an athlete’s abilities?
