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.

The character of Peter Parker is explored in depth in this film. His usual good-natured personality turns dark and vengeful after he is subjected to a black substance that falls from space. In reality, what might bring out our darker side? What are ways we can deal with our anger before it leads us to do things we will regret?

How does forgiving others allow Peter to progress in his life? Who benefited from his willingness to forgive?

The script makes a point about our ability to always make good choices, no matter what the circumstances are. How can we train ourselves to react positively in difficult and stressful situations?
