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.

What is the “mom disease” mothers suffer from in this story? Can dads be affected by this malady as well? How can parents effectively cure themselves of this illness?

Scripts often portray characters that have singular interests or abilities-athletics, academics, artistic, dramatic. Is that a realistic depiction? Can people be successful in more than one area of interest? How does Casey combine her abilities?
