SWBAT compare and contrast the film version of The Book Thief and Scholastic Scope's dramatic adaptation of the same film.

Big Idea

Adaptation = Change. Can you identify key differences?

Warm Up

15 minutes

Today is Free Read Friday.  (The link here takes will take you to an earlier lesson with my reflection explaining Free Read Friday.) Students will read their personal library books for the first 15 minutes of class.

Independent Work

35 minutes

Students will take a handout from the caddy, and I will briefly review the task.

Then, we will begin the film.  As they view students will follow directions on the handout to record similarities and differences between the two versions.

Wrap Up

5 minutes

During wrap up students will have a few moments to collect their thoughts so they can finish any notes on their handout before leaving for the day.
