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.

Did watching Chuck prepare to survive on the island make you more aware of the conveniences you have in your life? Do we sometimes take them for granted? What human attributes and skills are fading from our society as a result of our ease of existence? With all the time saving devices available in our society, why do we always complain that we don’t have enough time? What are we using our time for instead?

After returning home, Chuck has to make some difficult adjustments. What would you do in his situation?
