Product Description
Students are given the link and QR code to three video adaptations of the story "The Gift of the Magi."

The three film versions are:
-A classic retelling of the text
-A Sesame Street Bert and Ernie version
-A Mickey and Minnie Mouse story-telling

Students will complete a compare and contrast chart for the film and original text.
The next activity will ask students to reflect on the multimedia techniques used by the directors and producers (to cover the common core standard RL.7). Finally, students will answer opinion-based questions evaluating the effectiveness of the film.

Finally, students will combine all of their observations to determine the purpose and theme of the text. They will then decide which version of the story best portrays the purpose and theme by developing an evidence-based paragraph.

QR codes and links for each video are provided within the worksheet as well as on a separate sheet for potentially completing the activity in stations.
