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 did the airplane change the way wars are fought? What modern inventions have been adapted to serve defensive and offensive purposes today? Can you think of any positive things society has gained from the technology developed for military use?
