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 no one initially believes him, Horton stays true to his convictions. What does this say about his commitment level and feelings of responsibility? What does he do when faced with an option to back down from his beliefs? What does it mean to you to be faithful 100%?

What difference do individuals make in this story? What do Horton and Jo Jo learn about the importance of one?

How is diversity addressed in this script? How do perspectives change?
