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.

Rocket asks Baby Doll if there are things she wishes she could take back. What things would Rocket like to take back? What bad decisions did she make as a teen that put her in the spot she is now? How did those choices affect her family? Are there things you wish you could do over?

How do the girls in the institution cope with their life situations? In what other ways do people who have experienced violence or other trauma deal with the aftermath?

Are there any examples in this film where women are in control?
