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.

How does Polly’s unwillingness to tell the truth endanger others? Why is she so reluctant to come forth? How did her lies affect her relationship with Joe?

What makes Sky Captain different from superheroes like Superman or Batman? How did he deal with the stress of the job? Which kind of hero do you think it is easier to relate to?
