This is a romanticized Hollywood biography of Knute Rockne, possibly the most creative football coach of all time. Knute Rockne's Notre Dame football teams were the first to use the forward pass as a major offensive weapon. He also pioneered coordinated backfield movements, called "the shift," which are used to maximize the chance for large gains on running plays.
Knute Rockne - All American will acquaint children with this innovative man and the view that college sports are a game subordinate to the important work of education: e.g., Knute Rockne never intervened with a teacher to get a higher grade for one of his players; if a player's grades were not good enough, he was off the team.
The TeachWithMovies.com Learning Guide to Knute Rockne - All American will help teachers explore these themes.

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 Knute Rockne -- All American.
The forward pass had been legal in football since 1903 but before Knute Rockne, it had rarely been used by important college teams. Forced to the wall by a more powerful Army team in the 1913 season, Notre Dame used the pass as an integral part of its offense. The Army team was thrown off its game and Notre Dame won 35 - 13. The forward pass made football more exciting than it had been in the past, greatly increasing the sport's popularity.
