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.

What political statements are included in this movie regarding global warming and the Kyoto protocol? How are movies and other entertainment sometimes used as subtle propaganda devices?

The Day After Tomorrow is a 20th Century Fox movie. Notice what news network all the reporters work for and every television is tuned to. Also note the scene where someone says,“We need to change the channel” What station do they turn to?

What scientific errors can you find in this film? Do you think temperatures of 150 degrees below zero are possible? Can the oceans freeze that fast? Before becoming too cynical, you may want to check the work being done by UK Professor Marshall McCabe. Enter his name into google.com and see what you can find.
