Literature through Film II is a fun and engaging look at literature! Grab your bucket of popcorn and get ready for an adventure of a class! Have you ever found out your favorite book was made into a movie only to be disappointed by the adaption? Or have you ever had the opposite happen and discovered you loved a movie and did not really like the book? Films and books are both great ways to tell a story. In this class, students will wind through a series of books and their movie counterparts. In Literature through Film II students will compare books with their movie counterparts, students will learn what makes a great story (& maybe what does not) character development, and the other elements that make for great storytelling in both mediums.
In Literature through Film II we will discuss the stories and write comparison essays with each pair.
Students will be required to read each book and watch the required version for each movie for this class. Some of the book/movie combos will be:
- Hidden Figures
- To Kill a Mocking Bird
- Pride and Prejudice
- Little Women
Literature through Film II is going to be a dynamic and interactive class. Perfect for non-traditional students or High School students who struggle with reading.
