Product Description
This worksheet can be used as an in-class assignment, quiz, or test.

For this assignment, students compare the ideas, characters, and events of a text and its movie version. It ends with a question about how cinematic elements (lighting, sound, special effects) can have an affect on a story.

This assignment is appropriate for 6th and 7th grade based on Common Core, and could be easily edited to include a space for evaluation/analyzing to accommodate 8th grade as well.

Common Core (6th):
Compare and contrast the experience of reading
a story, drama, or poem to listening to or viewing
an audio, video, or live version of the text,
including contrasting what they “see” and “hear”
when reading the text to what they perceive
when they listen or watch.

Common Core (7th):
Compare and contrast a written story, drama, or
poem to its audio, filmed, staged, or multimedia
version, analyzing the effects of techniques unique
to each medium (e.g., lighting, sound, color, or
camera focus and angles in a film).

Common Core (8th):
Analyze the extent to which a filmed or live
production of a story or drama stays faithful to
or departs from the text or script, evaluating the
choices made by the director or actors.
