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.

Although Tony Stark may have had good intentions when he made the weapons of war, why is he unable to control where they end up? Is it a reality that armies may have to fight their own weapons? What are the moral complications involved in arms dealing?

Why does Tony’s time in captivity change the way he views his company’s work? What responsibility comes with his power?
