The Mighty Ducks: Levels of Development

Uploaded by icer37 on Mar 05, 2002

Screen favorite Emilio Estevez stars in The Mighty Ducks. His on screen character Gordon Bombay is a tough trial lawyer who never loses a case. But when convicted on a D.U.I., Gordon is faced with a community service assignment. He must coach district 41-hockey team. This bunch of kids can't skate; shoot, score, and most of all can't win!

The second example that I am using is when Gordon asks Mr. Ducksworth for $15000. Gordon is doing this because the kids on the team cannot afford the proper equipment to wear and because the players have no ice time on which to practice they're meager skills. This action by Gordon shows that he is acting on a Post-Conventional level. This is so because he is asking for the money because the kids may get hurt and because he cares about them and wants them to succeed in what they are doing. In this scene Mr. Bombay is acting as an altruist because, he is doing this for the good...
