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 do astronauts deal with limited space and feeling of isolation? Why is communication with the space station and the orbiting rocket so important? How does Ben feel when he believes they are being abandoned? Why does he think of his family?

What accounts for the popularity of this type of storytelling that involves documentary-style footage? Why are conspiracy theories often associated with the space or other government programs?

How do inaccuracies or plot holes distract from a film?
