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.

Why have the people in town ignored Mr. Toomey rather than trying to get to know him? What does Susan McDowell do differently? Why can it sometimes take time to warm up to a person?

Why does Thomas say he has nothing to pray about? What makes him change his attitude?

This movie is based a children’s story by Susan Wojciechowski, and illustrated by P. J. Lynch.
