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 is Vi Rose hesitant to let Randy join the choir? Does she have good reason to be wary of his motivations? Why is revamping the sound of the group a scary proposal?

Why is music often an important part of religious worship? How does singing in the choir inspire these congregation members, especially in the face of setbacks? How does singing help them feel the “Spirit” of God?

What relationship resolutions are portrayed in this film? Are they realistic?
