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 good efforts does Greg make to try and fit in at school? Why do they fail so often? Is Rowley more accepting of himself than Greg is? Is this an unusual character portrayal?

What does Greg’s mom mean when she says that choices are what make us who we are? What moral dilemmas does Greg face in this story? How does peer pressure impact the characters in this film?
