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.

Why do some people, seduced by a little authority, become obsessed with power and control? Besides Captain Bligh, what other characters struggled with this problem?

If you were in the position of the crew, how would you respond to the inflicted injustices?
