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.

How have past experiences broken the trust between Thor and Loki? Why can it be difficult to re-establish trust in a relationship even when both parties want it? (Of course in this case, Loki does not share a mutual desire to repair the relationship.)

Why does Thor say he would rather be a good man than a great king? What role can a great leader play in the welfare of his people? Is it possible to be both a good man and a great leader? What qualities does a great leader have?

What burial rituals does this movie depict?
