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.

Ari claims when apes mistreat humans “it demeans us as well as them.” What does she mean by that statement?

The story briefly reflects the issues of how mankind treats animals. What responsibilities do you believe human beings have as the dominant species of our world?

Thade, a general in the Ape Army, comes from a noble family who has secret knowledge. Do you think it is right to protect others from the truth even if it is unpleasant? What dangers could result from these facts falling into the wrong hands?
