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.

How is this family impacted by Katie’s illness? What kind of pressure does it put on her siblings? Why are children often forced to grow up sooner in challenging situations?

What dilemmas do Judge De Salvo (Joan Cusack) and Dr. Chance (David Thornton) face as they deal with the Fitzgerald family?

How does Kate respond to her diagnosis?
