PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This activity bundle gives you several choices for comparing the poem "Casey at the Bat" with the 1946 Short Film version.

While use of movies in the classroom can be controversial, bringing different media into lessons for comparison and evaluation can be a worthwhile activity. A well-structured comparison and evaluation activity requires higher-order thinking.

Contents:
--Comparison Table with 8 items for comparison and 2 'your choice' spots
--Additions to the story in the Film with evaluation for students to identify and evaluate 5 things added to the film version
-- Best of Both Worlds comparison where students pick which parts of the poem and which parts of the film were better
-- Final Evaluation: two versions. Students write either a paragraph or an essay on which version was better. (Rubric included for essay.)
