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 roles do risk and caution play in investing? What impact did one-upmanship have among these company executives? Is there any way to justify their apparent greed?

Should a documentarian try and show both sides of a story in his or her film? Does this director present a balanced argument? Is there a balanced argument to present? Why would some people refuse to be interviewed?

Do you believe there is any way to bring those who are responsible for the crisis to justice? How would that happen? Who would have to be involved? Is there anything investors can do to ensure their ventures are relatively sound?
