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.

Fear can be induced by many external factors while willpower seems to be internally motivated. Can other people affect a person’s individual will? Why does Hal believe people must admit they are afraid before they can face their fear?

How do the characters develop during this story? Is Hal Jordan a better role model by the end of the movie? Is he a better superhero? How does he compare with better-known figures such as Superman and Wonder Woman?

What does this film say about the worth of humanity? How do the expectations or life legacy of fathers affect their offspring in this story?
