October 14, 2013: What's Happening in English 10?

Today's focus: Viewing the film version of The Kite Runner and taking notes about the differences between the movie and the novel in preparation for a writing assignment about the film.

Take out a computer and open Google Docs.
  • Make yourself a two-column chart.
  • On the left side, make a list of directorial choices that might be significant. What do I mean by directorial choices, you ask? Look for ways the film differs from the novel, such as...
    • physical characteristics
    • deleted scenes
    • added scenes
    • casting
  • On the right side, analyze why you think these choices have been made and how they affect your interpretation of the story.
(Reminder: Please shut down computers properly and return them to the correct slot in the cart.)

Read your independent study book for 30 minutes.
