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 are Andi and Bruce so intent on keeping Friday? How do they define family?

Although some of their actions are illegal or dangerous, what are the intentions behind Andi and Bruce’s activities? Does that excuse their behaviors?

While Lois and Carl are portrayed in a negative light, there are thousands of good foster and adoptive parents who provide homes for children in need. Check with your local agencies for more information on adopting or fostering.
