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 sacrifices does Bella make for her baby? What other characters make sacrifices for Bella? Is it fair for her to expect these?

How does this script continue to play on the love triangle theme? How does Bella’s marriage affect her relationship with her parents, especially her father?

How well do the details from the book translate to the big screen? What was left out or added? What are the challenges of adapting a script?
