There is a reason why an Oscar is given each year for the Best Adaptation Screenplay. Adaptations are the focus of an exercise that asks class members to compare a work of literature with a least one adaptation of the work into a different genre. Students consider how the choice of genre necessitates or permits changes and whether they feel the changes are appropriate.
- Conclude the lesson by asking class members to craft an essay in which they evaluate whether the adaptation honestly represents the original
- Requires individual copies of multiple handouts
- The worksheets focus attention on specific aspects of the adaptation process and encourages reviewers to think critically about the artist's choices when adapting a work from one genre to another
- No suggestions are supplied for the activity that requires learners to compare and contrast a work of literature with at least one adaptation in a different medium
