PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This set of four handouts provides students with a clear, simple note-taking template for comparing a film adaptation to a novel. The scaffold can be the basis for 1-2 lessons of viewing and another lesson of group work, and can be extended into an online collaboration (collating notes, adding stills and quotes, and commenting on other groups’ ideas).

There are four different aspects of comparison for different students to focus their note-taking: narrative events; characters and relationships; visual and audio; and setting, time and theme.
This enables a jigsaw-type activity: after viewing, students focusing on the same aspect of the film can work in expert groups to share their notes, then split into mixed groups to teach the others. Another option is for the groups to collate their notes, then add them to a shared online document (e.g. Google Doc, Padlet, Blackboard). You can assess students on their combined work and their individual comments on others’ ideas.

These notes also make an ideal basis for an extended written response (compare and contrast) or review.
