|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.
What does Marjane’s grandmother mean when she says “fear lulls our minds to sleep”? What impact does this older relative have on her granddaughter? How is she a voice of reason in the family?
Freedom and justice are words often bantered around in society. What meaning would these terms have in a more oppressive culture? Can a person be free while living in repressive conditions?
How does Marjane’s childhood differ from others in her country? What impact do the circumstances have on her as a child? What does she learn about herself and her country when she moves to Vienna? Why is she drawn back to her homeland?
