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.

The Pop Warner football league began in 1929 and offers young players the opportunity to develop sports skills and teamwork in a safe environment. Visit http://www.popwarner.com/football/pop.asp?lable=overview.

To read more about the real Jasmine Plummer, go to http://edition.cnn.com/2003/US/Midwest/12/06/girl.quarterback.ap/index.html .

How does Jasmine feel about being abandoned by her father? How does she show forgiveness?

How does accepting responsibility change life for Curtis as well other members of the community?
