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.

The society depicted here is convinced that their future has already been determined. Is it dangerous to believe your destiny is in the hands of fate?

A character says the “pre-cogs” provide hope of the existence of a divine being. Do you agree? What things in this world would indicate the evidence of a divine being to you?

Invasion of privacy is rampant in this society. People are eye-scanned continuously and the “pre-cogs” have their individual rights removed for the benefit of the society at large. Do you think this type of activity is acceptable? Do the benefits outweigh the personal invasion of privacy?
