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 strengths does each of the Avengers bring to this assembly? What role do egos play in this group? What attitudes do they have to overcome in order to work together? If you were a superhero would it be difficult to be a team player?

How do Captain America’s views and morals differ from some of the other characters? Why is that?

How does this script employ the literary theme of god vs. man? What advantages do the humans seem to have over the gods? Why is this theme recurrent in literature and other entertainment?

How does Bruce Banner deal with his anger? Is it important to find positive ways to overcome weaknesses?
