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 do you feel about creating fictitious action entertainment based on the terrorist attacks of 2001? Why do you think the creators of this film chose to open the movie with pictures from the actual event? How do you feel about the decision to use these images?

The Saudi citizen assigned to host the US investigators often asks them to curtail their use of profanity. By ignoring his request, what additional insight do we glean about the traits of the characters? Is this an accurate representation of all Americans? Why do you think the screenwriter made these choices?
