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.

Throughout the movie, Wolverine wrestles with his personal ethics over the use of his mutant strength. How does the sanction of military authority affect his choices? What happens when he desires revenge?

A caring character in the movie tells Wolverine that he can choose the way he reacts. Do you think this is true? Is he in control of his feelings, or are they just a product of his animal instincts?
