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 Thor so determined to settle the score with the Frost Giants at the beginning of the movie? Was he right to challenge his father’s perceived apathy? Have there been any examples in history when similar decisions have been made?

For those who understand the intricate relationships that exist between the various Marvel characters, the unveiling of Thor brings us one step closer to seeing the famous battling team known as the Avengers on screens in 2012. This comic book alliance includes other notable super heroes, including Iron Man, who is referenced in this movie.
