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.

Greg suffers from middle child syndrome. What are the challenges of having an older and younger sibling?

What secrets do this family keep? Is there a different between a lie and a secret. How can we teach children the difference? What sacrifices does Greg’s mother make for the sake of peace in the home? Is she unrealistic to expect her sons to get along?

What consequences do the kids have for their actions in this movie? Are they realistic? Would they be different in your family? Does Rodrick deserve to be forgiven for the things he does?
