Product Description
This activity bundle gives you several choices for comparing a movie, a portion of a movie, or a TV show adaptation with the text of "The Monkey's Paw" by W.W. Jacobs.

While use of movies in the classroom can be controversial, bringing different media into lessons for comparison and evaluation can be a worthwhile activity. A well-structured comparison and evaluation activity requires higher-order thinking

Contents:
--Comparison Table with 8 items for comparison and 2 'your choice' spots
-- Best of Both Worlds comparison where students pick which parts of the book and which parts of the movie were better
-- Final Evaluation: two versions. Students write either a paragraph or an essay on which version was better. (Rubric included for essay.)

Use one or more parts with the short story and any movie version!

This item is single file PDF.


Also available in the money saving The Monkey's Paw Activity Bundle

This item is also part of the Halloween ELA Activity Bundle and the Three Wishes Unit: Aladdin and The Monkey's Paw. Big bundles with big savings!
