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 does Dom justify his reasons for exposing his team to so much danger in order to clear his own name? Would his motivations been less acceptable if the movie ended differently than it does? What are other situations in which many lives are risked for the sake of one?

If you were able, would you want to share a dream with someone else? What would be the benefits? What things might you discover about the other person?

Dom believes that an idea is a powerful, resilient parasite. What are some ideas that have changed the world?
