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.

How does Matthew Drayton’s experience with the distasteful ice-cream he orders at the drive-in, parallel the message of the movie?

Although John was a seemingly ideal man for their daughter, the Draytons had reservations because of his color. John’s parents are also upset. Are there any cultural, social, religious or racial issues that would be difficult for you to accept in your child’s fiance? How well do you think your family lives the values and morals you espouse.
