FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Montana 1948 Questions and Answer Key, Part One”

by The English Teacher’s Pet

7th – 12th Grade

The law and racial tensions with Native Americans in Montana 1948 add to the Wild west feel of the novel.

Larry Watson’s Montana 1948 recalls a time when the West was becoming civilized- fences were going up, towns were growing, and families were making names for themselves. The Hayden family always had meant the law in Mercer County, and as narrator David recalls, his father, the Sheriff had an easy time at his job- until one day his brother Frank decided to take liberties with an Indian girl while tending to her as doctor. Frank kills her to keep her quiet, and the book’s conflicts take off as brother is pitted against brother. 

Included in this 4 page document are over 20 study guide questions to handout while reading the book, including an answer key for teacher’s reference.
