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.

What roles do men and women play in this film? Which gender would be a more likely terrorist suspect? Why? Do you think Colleen Goodwin would have behaved differently if she were a man? Why might filling that role with a male character have made the scenario more difficult for the audience to believe?

What "holes" can you find in the science of this movie? How much liberty would Cpt. Stevens have in navigating through the train and even outside of it if he was confined to one person’s memories?
