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 does Maya choose to stay and try to help Daisy instead of giving up and going home? Do we ever have to make similar decisions in our own lives?

What does Maya tell Courtney that helps her strengthen her relationship with her father? Why is it important to accept who we are, even when it’s not always what we want to be?
