Product Description

This is a great tool for scaffolding a compare and contrast writing assignment for a text to film of A Thousand Splendid Suns! This resource helps students process key themes in both book and film.


The A Thousand Splendid Suns has not yet been made into a movie. The movie rights have been sold and they plan on making one. I would suggest using scenes from Kite Runner.

You can also play scenes from movies that share the themes found in A Thousand Splendid Suns:

Love, Warfare, Women and Femininity, Poverty, Visions of Afghanistan, Power, Education, Family


This purchase includes an elements of film handout, essay graphic organizer, rubric, and notes for the teacher. The elements of film handout defines 14 basic elements for students to use as evidence in their essays. The graphic organizer has students pre-plan which scenes their essay will focus on, structures their notes during the film, and plan their thesis statement. The rubric simplifies the grading in a "3-2-1" system focusing on ideas, voice, organization, and mechanics. Finally, the notes for teacher includes tips on how to use these tools in class.
