SUGGESTED ACTIVITY IMPLEMENTATION
After reading Holes, students will compare the film to the novel, analyzing the similarities and differences in various aspects of the two works of art. This opens up a bunch of fun and critical-thinking conversation about why the movie-makers would change parts of the novel for the film. They are, after all, two different works of art.
How is the movie different?
This 2-page organizer will help your students compare the novel to the movie.
