|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.
After being ambushed by scavengers, falling far under the ground because his rope breaks and then repeatedly shot at, Jack returns home looking like he’s had a bad day at the office. How do filmmakers skip over details (such as how Jack managed to get out of the hole) in order to keep the plot moving? What other things go unexplained in this story?
What occurrences make Jack start to question the snippets of memories he experiences?
In addition to Jack’s role as a member of the clean-up crew, what other similarities does he share with WALL-E? How are items like books, knickknacks and personal items equated with humanity in both of these films? What other likenesses are found in each of their man caves?
What are the challenges of creating a futuristic world? What rules govern it? Why is it sometimes difficult to always abide by those rules?
