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.

Talk about the movie with your family…

This movie was made in 1984, and (from the date of writing this review) looks 9 years into the future. Which of the film’s predictions do you feel are possible or unlikely over the next decade? How does it compare with it’s predecessor, 2001: A Space Odyssey ?

Should space exploration be more or less of a priority in our world today? What are the benefits? What are the disadvantages? Do you think science and space exploration can help political powers in the world work together more peacefully? What countries are left out of this process?
