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.

Finding our families “roots” is, at the very least, interesting. Prior to coming back to the delta, Loretta had no dreams or goals. How does learning about her family’s past help to construct a vision for her future?

Could your family benefit from knowing your family history? You can begin by checking out sites like http://www.familysearch.org/ or http://www.rootsweb.com/
