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 might a movie’s intended audience influence the choice of criminals an author includes in a story?

What body image concerns are raised in this film? What sacrifices do dancers and other performers (as well as regular women) make for the sake of their art or society’s idea of beauty?

What advice does Big Momma give the girls when it comes to relationships with boys? Why does she say it is better to be alone than with someone who isn’t good for you? What does Trent think of the Cosmopolitan article about catching a man? Do you think many men would share his opinion?
