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.

How does extending assistance to Jerry allow Audrey to cope with and eventually move past her grief? Do you think we provide enough encouragement to serve others in our society? How can the experience with helping someone else affect the way you feel about yourself?

Heroin addiction is a serious problem, and some people fall into the false belief that using it in a non-injective form will avoid addiction. For more information on overcoming this and other substance dependencies, check www.drug-rehab.com.
