Product Description

In 1980, American Playhouse/Great Performances recorded a version of Mark Twain’s Life on the Mississippi. Students still respond to the story of a young boy following his dream and learning the river.

Ten short-answer essay questions focus on historical background/local color, character analysis, and Twain’s technique. Students can use the handout to take notes as they watch, or as a “quiz” after the movie is viewed. Items are suitable for individual, partner, or group work, both oral and/or written.
