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.

Do you think Grandpa made the right choice when he decided not to tell Annie’s mom about her runaway attempt? Who else in the movie kept secrets? How does their lack of honesty affect their relationships?

How does Annie’s decision to clean up her grandfather’s house affect the way she feel about him? How do her acts of service make him feel about her?

Some of the local residents comment on the differences between small town and city kids. Why do they feel this way? Do you think your environment changes the way you respond to others?
