In my "History to 1865" class, my Fabu instructor has given us,( his students), the opportunity to view "The Last of the Mohicans". Upon completion of the video, he has given us a take home quiz with four questions about the movie.
#1 According to the movie, what caused the American Revolution?
#2 According to the movie, what are the main characteristics of "The Frontier"? What role does the Frontier play in the movie?
#3 Compare Hawkeye and Magua. Are they stereotypes? What are the
strengths and/or weaknesses in the characterization of each?
#4 What happens next? What is "The Rest of the Story"?
Well, I only wish that I had Mr. Cooper here to swap ideas with. My teacher is an excellant teacher, (and I think he wants the ideas so maybe he can collaborate with one of us and write a sequel), and I do like the idea of a take home quiz.
This movie was an excellant portrayal of the way the U.S. was back then. I was taken in by it's realistic qualities. I am glad I am not Alice, but would give my eye teeth to have been Madeline Stowe!
I thank everyone who has taken out the time for this website. It is a privilege to take part in this event.
I remain, Karrie Wendt
