|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.
How did Astrid’s wardrobe change in each of her foster homes? What do you think her clothing choices represented?
Astrid and her mother had some family rules including one about allowing a man to stay the night. How did breaking that rule affect their future lives? Do you think the outcome would have been different if they had abided by it?
In the end, what did Astrid discover about her mother that allowed her to move forward? Are people destined to imitate their childhood exemplars? What does it take to change negative behaviors into positive ones?
