|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.
John is able to get information on criminal activities on the Internet. Should law enforcement officers be able to persecute people who post these tips? Are there dangers associated with following these instructions?
How can circumstantial evidence lead to the conviction of individuals who did not commit a crime? What recourse is available to innocent people behind bars? What legal precedents have been set in these cases?
How do the filmmakers play on the audience’s emotions to justify John’s activities? Is there ever a time when his actions would be acceptable? In what other situations might people rationalize breaking the law?
