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.

While scientists still haven’t discovered how to make food from water molecules, they are working at creating more genetically modified foods. How can this improve food production? How do you feel about this type of intervention?

Flint and his father are on opposing ends of the technology scale. How does that impact their relationship? What technology gaps do you experience with your parents or children?

One of the characters pretends to be less intelligent than she is in order to have people like her. Why do people, especially women, often feel like they have to play dumb to be socially accepted?
