Product Description
Included in this product is a front and back worksheet that has guiding questions students can use to analyze films based on books to compare and contrast the written word with a visual text on the front and double-entry journals on the back that students can use to take notes directly on or as a model for copying onto a sheet of notebook paper for more extensive notes while watching a film. Information is separated by acting decisions, scene selection, and setting creation, so this can be used as prewriting to develop traditional essays on directorial choices as well.

I've used this in class to analyze the differences between Zeffirelli's and Branagh's versions of Hamlet, but it is general enough to be used with any film that is based on a book or short story.

Note: Due to the open nature of the guide, there are no answer keys included. Depending on the film and novel pairing you select, different answers will be acceptable.
