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.

While Troy takes heavy artistic license on what little is known about this period of history, it still poses some interesting questions about pride. How does pride affect our ability to make rational decisions? Can you think of a conflict that hasn’t been the result of someone’s pride being hurt?

How much responsibility for the catastrophic consequences should lie on the shoulders of Helen of Troy? Do you think she holds complete accountability for what resulted? If not, what was she responsible for causing?
