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.

Does the protagonist in this film have any other choices other than to obey the directions to do illegal things? What is the value of one life versus the lives of the many others who are likely killed or injured as Magna follows the commands of the unknown voice? What else could one do if placed in such a situation? Can you think of other movie plots that use a similar scenario?
