|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.
Jamie made a list of things she wanted to accomplish in her life. What kind of life goals would you put on your list?
Seeking and granting forgiveness are themes that run throughout this film. Can you list the characters that either said they were sorry or forgave someone? Did you feel differently about the characters afterwards? Is apologizing or forgiving easy?
In many teen movies (such as She’s All That and The Princess Diaries), characters have to change their outward appearance before they are considered acceptable. How did Jamie change when she fell in love with Landon? What kind of changes did Landon make? Were these changes external or internal? What motivated the transformations and who benefited from them?
