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.

Tickell says that the only ways to get rid of the toxic byproducts of oil is to burn them, dump them on the land or dump them in the water. Which of these three do you think would be the least harmful to the environment? What are the drawbacks of each of these alternatives?

The documentary suggests that current world conflicts are the result of war for oil not war on terrorism. Do you agree or not? What evidence do you have to support your theory?

How does society’s rampant consumerism contribute to the problems discussed in this production? What individual changes would you be willing to make?
