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.

A group of leaders develops a policing strategy that will eliminate any one who poses a threat to society before they can cause harm. What are the dangers of such a plan? Who gets to decide who is a threat and who is not? What information are they using to determine possible suspects?

Trust becomes an issue for Captain America. Why does Nick Fury warn him not to trust anyone? Who does he eventually put his faith in? Why do people need others they can rely on? How do you determine whom you can trust?

How is digital surveillance used in this story? What information could someone get about you from your social networking sites and other digital information? Are you comfortable with that? Is there any way to prevent it?

What is the difference when people are controlled with fear rather than given their freedom to make their own choices? Why might leaders prefer to govern with fear?
