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 Cody is able to manage the waves in Antarctica, he chokes when it comes to the competition. Why do you think that is? How does he overcome his setback?

What role does Lani play in supporting her uncle’s reclusive habits? Why does he need her to take care of him?

Why is Cody so set on winning the competition? How does his father’s death affect his desire? What is the greatest lesson he learns from the other boarders?
