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 are adult/child relationships portrayed in this film? Why is Harley so anxious to have a father figure in his life? Do superheroes, sports figures or other celebrities sometimes substitute for fathers in a child’s life? What important roles do dads play in their children’s social, physical, mental and emotional development?

Does Tony learn anything that makes him less arrogant by the end of the film? Does his character grow? If so, how?

How is science portrayed in this film? How do the scientists choose to use new avenues of genetic modification that they are developing? While scientists are already modifying seeds and animals, what other changes are they implementing?
