Product Description
We've all seen the Movie and Book Venn Diagrams. And so have our students - you can tell by the groans when you pass them out and tell them to take notes during the movie.

However, I found many problems with these organizers. First - students are tired of them. Second - they don't actually fit the Common Core Standard. Third - they don't require the students to do any thinking. Fourth - it requires the students to just get an overall gist of the entire story, not focus in on details.

I took a long, hard look at the Common Core Standard RL 8.7 to understand what we were to focus on when showing movie or play adaptations of novels. Then, I created this graphic organizer for my students to complete Before, During and After the movie.

On the first page is a graphic organizer that I do together as a class before watching the movie. I have students compare the techniques an author can use to develop a story element to the techniques a director can use. I typed an example in the handout for students to refer to.

Next, I have students chooes five story elements that they want to focus on. They describe them in the book, then as we watch the movie they add descriptions. This helps the students focus while they watch the movie because they have given themselves 5 specific goals.

Lastly, students evaluate the choices made by the director.

***I use this as brainstorming for a final, argumentative essay. See my TpT to purchase a copy of this assessment and rubric!***
