The Jane Austen Book Club

Does art reflect life, or vice-versa?

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 does Prudie mean when she says high school is never over? What insecurities is she dealing with from her past? How do they affect her current relationships?

What do the book club members learn about themselves during their discussions? How do they help one another through the difficulties of life?

What does Jocelyn learn about trying new things?
