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.

Advancements in science allow Merrick and his staff to grow clones. At what point does sensibility become more important than ability? What lengths should people be allowed to go to prolong their own lives? What disparities in health care are already evident between the wealthy and poor?

What kind of monitoring equipment is evident in the futuristic outside world? How common are many of those devices today? Do they provide necessary information to protect citizens or are they an intrusion into people’s private lives?
