After teaching this classic story by Rudyard Kipling, I like to show the video (an old animated version from 1975). It's short enough to fit in one class period, but it also stays true enough to the Kipling tale for my comfort.
I created this assessment to address RL.7.7 which asks my students to compare and contrast a written story to its filmed version, as well as analyzing the techniques used in each medium. I have shared the assessment (and the answer key) with you. The assessment has eight questions, so it, too, is brief enough to fit in the same class period used for showing the film. The first five questions are straight up compare and contrast, while the final three questions go after the techniques used in the video.
