This is a 28-page packet of literature and film study questions for use with the novel Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll and the 2010 Tim Burton film, Alice in Wonderland.
For each chapter of the novel there is a five to seven question lit response worksheet. Some of the questions are designed to assess reading comprehension (or listening comprehension if you read the novel aloud); others are intended to hone critical thinking and writing skills. Students are asked to read as writers-to pay close attention to character, conflict, point of view and elements of craft. Some of the questions can also be used as prompts for longer writing assignments.
Along with each lit response worksheet there is a short quiz on new vocabulary. I have also included a vocabulary study sheet (last two pages of the packet) where all words are listed with easy to understand definitions and parts of speech.
Most of my students are English language learners so some attention is paid to decoding idioms and puns that native English speakers may or may not already be familiar with. The novel's nineteenth century British English can be a challenge for many of today's kids (even if English is their first language) so the lit response worksheets here devote considerable attention to "unpacking" some of the novel's more oblique lines and passages.
Following the lit response worksheets are three pages of film response questions. Some questions ask students to compare the film to the novel but most ask students to write about the film as a separate work. Some questions are designed to assess plot comprehension; others focus on elements of story (character, conflict, motive, tension, etc.)
The document is in Microsoft Word so you can easily modify or delete questions to fit your own class's needs.
