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 events in the life of James T. Kirk contributed to his decisions as a young man? How did Spock’s childhood affect his personality? What adjustments do the characters need to make in their lives before they can successfully work together? Do you think people actually change, or do they simply learn to control their emotions and reactions?
