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.

What are some ways Jess and her friend Bobby could have kept in touch after he moved? Do you think Bobby might have been having a hard time adjusting to his new neighborhood? How could you befriend a new person in your community?

Are rules important? How did Santa feel about Blizzard’s excuse for breaking the rules? What did Blizzard learn about keeping rules?

Why was the city champion’s father so concerned about her winning the club competition? How did the film contrast Katie and Erin’s fathers? Are only ?rich? fathers obsessed with their children’s success?
