After Khaled Hosseini’s 2003 novel “The Kite Runner” became very popular, it was made into a movie in 2008. After your students read the book, an enjoyable culminating activity is to show the movie and ask students to note differences. This activity provides an incentive to view the movie carefully while promoting critical thinking.
This item contains ten questions that students complete as they watch the movie. One example is, “What important character from the book does not appear in the movie?” Students could answer the questions individually, in pairs, or in small groups. For each answer they get correct, they might earn extra-credit points on a test. Or you could create a competition to see who can answer the most questions correctly.
An answer key is provided.
In addition, this item includes six broad questions that you can use for a post-viewing discussion, written responses, or test questions.
