|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.
What educational opportunities might Mattie have had in a small frontier town? How likely is it that she would have such an in depth grasp of legal knowledge? What different attitudes about the law do Rooster and LaBoeuf have? How do they each feel about their roles as officers of the law?
Do you think Rooster Cogburn uses his position as a US Marshal to justify a thirst for killing? Does he experience any consequences for his "shoot on sight" approach to justice?
What skills did a tracker need in order to follow a criminal? How difficult might it have been to find someone in the wilderness?
