When I teach The Diary of Anne Frank, I use three versions: excerpts from the actual diary, the play and the film.
One CCSS that I focus on when teaching the play and diary is RL 8.3: how dialogue propels the plot and reveals aspects of character (See my TpT store for the ppt I use!)
However, the help culminate the three versions, I integrate this standard with CCSS RL 8.7: evaluating the choices made by a director through comparing filmed versions to the text.
This easy-to-use handout is divided into two sections. First, the student chooses one character to focus on. The student uses textual evidence to identify how a trait of the character is revealed in each medium (diary, play, film). The second section is comprised of 3 higher level thinking questions. These questions encourage the student to use the information from Section One to analyze the choices made in each version and to evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of each.
*This is a perfect ending activity to my Intro PPT!*
