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.

When did Rory make his first mistake? What other options were available that could still have offered him personal benefit? What would you have done if put in his circumstance?

Can all hurt be fixed with money? What other things might be tried to recompense a wrong? What can be done if the other party refuses to accept attempts to reconcile?
