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.

For nearly 40 years, Burt refines and perfects the capabilities of his bike. What is the ultimate objective of his work? Why is this goal so important to him? How does his perseverance pay off?

Burt appears to reserve judgment when he encounters other people. How does that affect his relationship with others including Tom’s parents, Tina and the race officials? What is it about him that endears him to others? What does this script say about senior members of our society?

Much of what you see in this movie depicts the real process by which Burt refined his bike. For the complete story, check this site.
