Literature through Film Level One is a fun and engaging look at literature! Grab your bucket of popcorn and get ready for an adventure of a class! This full-year course will focus on stories and novels that have been magically turned into film. From old fairy tales to modern middle-grade novels, we will study everything from the lives of authors and movie directors to the elements of the story in its various presentations. Using the medium of film, students will learn the basic elements of story, good writing, and literary analysis.

We will spend 2 -3 weeks on each story. Class time will be devoted to a guided conversation on the story as it was told in the book versus the movie, rereading and analyzing certain passages and quotes from the book, and watching and analyzing important clips from the movie. We will learn how to analyze storytelling in its respective forms and share our own individual insights on both book and film.
Families will be responsible for accessing each book and film and reading and watching them outside of class time. The majority of books (and many films) should be available at your local library. As for the films, a Disney Plus subscription will be very helpful, however, other older films will be free to watch in full on YouTube or to rent on Amazon Prime.

Examples of stories we will study in Literature through Film (not a complete list):

  • The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe
  • Cinderella (Brothers Grimm) & Live-action Disney version
  • Pollyanna (Eleanor H. Porter) & 1960 Disney’s Pollyanna
  • Holes (Louis Sachar) & 2003 Disney’s Holes
  • A Christmas Carol & Disney’s Christmas Carol (2009)
  • Charlotte’s Web ( EB White) & Live-action version (2006)

  • The Diary of Anne Frank & 2010 movie version
  • Call of The Wild & 2020 movie version

This is going to be a fun and engaging class. Perfect for your creative students or middle school and high school students who struggle with reading.
