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.

Although Eloise’s constant meddling in the lives of others turns out to be a good thing in this movie, is that always true in real life? How do you know when to become involved in other people’s problems, and when not to?

What’s with the wreath? In the closing scene of the movie, a stray Christmas wreath is being blown about by the wind. Those familiar with the original story may remember Hilary Knight drew one into the concluding picture of the book. The movie creators included it too, trying to stay faithful to the artist’s vision. (You can learn more about this in the Making of documentary included on the DVD of Eloise at Christmastime.)
