Start working your students on the Common Core with this lesson that uses compare/contrast with a text and video.
Activate students with a discussion about how movies are always different from their books. Walk students through a Y comparison chart by having students answer questions about the short story "Eleven." Then show the short movie adaptation of the story. Students then complete the right side of the Y chart. Finally students look at similarities on each side of the Y and record them in the box marked similarities.
The lesson includes a PowerPoint for the board, video link, and student handout.
