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 was the difference between Mullet Finger’s and Roy’s methods of making things change? Which one do you think was on the right track? Considering the mere act of trespassing is breaking the law, do you think their activities were a good idea?

Big corporations are a frequent “target” in movies. Why do you think this is such a popular theme? What are some of the things they are criticized for? What are some good things large companies contribute to society?

The bully, Dana Matherson, is falsely accused of a crime. How do our actions and choices allow us to either be trusted or mistrusted by others?
