|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.
When is violence justified? Did Chris use every opportunity available to him to rectify the situation? What other agencies could have been involved? How does this movie attempt to give good reasons for the violence presented?
An extended scene has Chris locked in the police station while thugs fire hundreds, perhaps thousands, of rounds of ammunition into the building. Where are the rest of the towns citizens while this is happening? Why do movies often remove “unnecessary” elements (like the rest of the communitys population) when portraying a story?
