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 does Farren feel like the outsider in her family? What impact can parental desertion have on children? How does Bob’s childhood experience influence her attitude?

Ian feels ostracized at school because he is brainy rather than athletic. What other things may be contributing to the way he is treated? How can parents help children feel confident in public regardless of their natural inclinations?

How does this film’s musical score contribute to the story? How is it used to let audiences know how they should feel? What types of music are used?
