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.

Sarah Cain claims, “Being a writer is everything I am.” How does this belief affect the choices she makes? What are the dangers of pinning a person’s self-worth on only one aspect of an individual’s life?

What challenges do the children face as they try to adjust to living in a modern city? Why do they have so many people problems? What are the advantages and disadvantages of each of the lifestyles shown?
