|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.
New Ulm is an actual community in Minnesota, but rather than Scandinavians (as is implied by portrayals in this movie) it has a prominent German population. Learn more about New Ulm and read an article from the New Ulm Journal about how it was included in this movie.
For Canadians (and others who live in cold climates), you may have a chuckle reading about how Renee Zellweger reacted to filming this movie in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
