Beau Geste is an excellent introduction to gambling addiction, the French Foreign Legion, and misplaced views of honor in the late 19th century.
Learning Guide Excerpt
To demonstrate how our Learning Guides can be used by teachers to improve lesson plans, we have set out below a paragraph from the Learning Guide to Beau Geste.
France, like England, had an extensive colonial empire. Examples of countries that were French colonies are: Algeria, Lebanon, Vietnam, French Guyana, and several Caribbean islands. The French Foreign Legion was formed to help the French army conquer and control the colonies. The Foreign Legion took any man without regard to his past, gave him a fictitious name, and permitted him to start a new life. Thus, its soldiers were often outlaws, outcasts, or political refugees. The French Foreign Legion was renowned for its fighting ability.
The Learning Guide to the film Beau Geste contains sections on Benefits of the Movie, Possible Problems, Helpful Background, Discussion Questions, Links to the Internet, and Bridges to Reading. The Discussion Questions are divided into three categories: Subject Matter, Social-Emotional Learning, and Moral-Ethical Emphasis.
