* "The Speckled Band" film (episode 6 of season 1)

- CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.7

This 2-page organizer will help your students compare the story to the movie.

How is the movie different?

After reading "The Adventures of the Speckled Band," students will view the film and analyze the differences. This opens up a bunch of fun and critical-thinking conversation about why the movie-makers would change parts of the story for the film. They are, after all, two different works of art.

Enjoy "The Adventures of the Speckled Band"!
