Product Description
With this "Comparing Books & Movies Activity", Middle and High School English Language Arts students will exhibit their range of thinking skills from knowledge through evaluation. This activity allows them to summarize the information they gathered from literary texts and visual media, and to differentiate between pertinent and extraneous details. If they feel they need to, teachers will be able to determine who read the book and who watched the movie instead of reading the text through this activity.

Here are a few teaching suggestions for this activity
Teaching Suggestions
• Show the movie in class after students have finished reading the novel.
• Students should complete these exercises individually.
• If time permits, teachers can group students together and ask them to prepare a visual to present to the class. Possible activities- a story board depicting scenes from the movie based on the Pre-Movie Activity number 1, 3, or 4 points, a video where they act out a scene from the novel, or a presentation for a television series pilot based on the book, including visuals for the setting, characters, costumes, as well as the opening and closing scenes, what actors/actresses they would choose, etc. For this extension, students could also create their desired visual, with teacher approval.
• to offer it for extra credit to students who watch it on their own when they don't show it in class

However it is utilized, it gives students an opportunity to expand their critical thinking skills.

This activity pairs well with many of my unit plans in my custom category, Literature Unit Plans- Fiction & Nonfiction grades 6-12.
