Compare and Contrast: Book vs Movie

Today in Language Arts, students worked toward their compare and contrast analysis standard by reading a chapter of The Fault In Our Stars and watching the movie clip of the same scene. Students were completely engaged in this lesson and ideas about the differences between book and movie were hotly debated. I love seeing our kiddos get passionate about any topic, and even more so recognizing and sympathizing with the struggle and heartache that people with terminal illnesses go through.

I encourage you to discuss today's lesson in Language Arts with your child. Here is the video clip we showed and a PDF of the chapter that was analyzed.
