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 is false charity? Why does Aunt Polly consider generosity to be a responsibility? How does Pollyanna feel about her visits around town?

Is it easier to have a negative or positive outlook? How does Pollyanna’s treatment of others alter the way they feel about themselves?
