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.

Why was the newspaper editor interested in stirring up controversy over Spider-Man? How did it affect newspaper sales? What is the ratio of positive versus negative news stories in a daily paper? Is that reflective of reality?

If people are free to make choices, can they also choose the consequences that will follow? What were the results of Peter’s decisions? How did his choices affect other people?

Who are the heroes in your life? What kind of sacrifices do they make?
