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 do you think Joy’s plight meets with so much empathy from the women in the community? Why do they put a lot of the blame on the men in their lives? Why do you think the children are also implicated? What responsibility do these moms have in the problem? How does a person’s personal perspective change the definition of what makes Christmas perfect?

What is the most important part of the Christmas celebrations for you? What things do you think you could do to improve the quality of the experience for all family members?

What stereotypical teen behavior is included in this movie? Why are men often shown as inept in the kitchen? How do you feel about these depictions?
