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 does Nancy demonstrate self-confidence without demeaning others? While in reality people may not be as quick to accept others they see as different as are the students shown in this movie, what can you do if you feel ostracize?

When someone who is allergic to peanuts quits breathing at Nancy’s party, she performs a cricothyroidotomy or emergency tracheotomy. This procedure is often depicted in movies and TV programs, yet it is very difficult to do and is usually illegal to perform unless you are a qualified medical professional. Typically “Good Samaritan” laws do not protect you if you attempt this type of first aid.
