This packet contains a list of classic and modern films based on pieces of American Literature. The comprehensive chart contains film titles along with corresponding literary titles upon which the films are based. It also contains the genre, the actors and the year produced.
The assignment calls for students to watch three films: two from The Classics (1940-1969) and one from The Moderns (1970-2005). As a perfect complement, there are three different worksheets that students may complete while watching the films.
As a summative assessment and writing instruction, students may write a movie review based on one of the formative assessments (the worksheets).
Included are 11 pages: video lists, worksheets/graphic organizers, guided writing prompts, grading rubric and student reflection.
I've uploaded the packet as a Word documents so you may edit to fit your instruction and/or curriculum.
