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 much do we really know about the past from experts with “superior intelligence” interpreting the facts for us?

How many different cinematic effects were employed to give the viewer a sense of oppression and suspense?

How many hours in a simulator would be required to fly a jet fighter? Would aviation fuel be combustible after 1,000 years? Finally, why would a superior race have rotten teeth, while primitive cave-dwellers sport a Colgate smile?
