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.

The students in Trish’s high school English class are asked to write a paper about an incident that changed their lives. What happened in Justin’s life? What event in your experience has had a life-changing impact on you?

Why can it be difficult to see the world from another person’s perspective? How can you develop a broader point of view without actually changing places with someone as Trish did? Would a better understanding of another’s problems make you respond differently to them?

Whether or not you believe in God, are there people in your life that have been "angels" and helped you? Have you ever been that for someone else?
