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.

As the winner of a Survivor series, Bianca is all about making alliances. But how does a marriage relationship differ from an alliance? How does the competitive attitudes of Bianca and Roscoe affect their relationship? What does Roscoe’s dad mean when he says marriage is about more than the wedding day?

How does Roscoe’s parenting style differ from that of his older brother Otis (Michael Clarke Duncan)? Why does Otis caution him not to let money raise his son? What things do you think are important for rearing a child?
