|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.
Abraham Zapruder’s film footage includes some brief scenes of his grandchildren playing in the backyard. How does this depiction of a happy family event contrast with the gory footage of the shooting that follows? How were innocent lives shattered by the events of that day? How does the film depict the commitment the President’s personal security detail feels for their Commander-in-Chief?
How does the focus of the film change when JFK and Jackie become secondary characters instead of the main focus? How does the director ensure that they stay in the background of the story?
How are Robert Oswald and his family impacted by his brother’s alleged act? How is Robert’s strength of character shown? How is that strength depicted at his brother’s funeral?
How do certain characters try to cover up or deflect attention aimed at them? Do you agree with their less than scrupulous methods of avoiding blame? If in fact Lee Harvey Oswald killed the President, did agents have the information they needed to sideline the assassination?
