Portfolio 13.4: Compare and Contrast “To Kill a Mockingbird” and “To Kill a Mockingbird”
This will be a one page essay which analyzes the differences and similarities between the novel and the movie. The first task of this essay is to locate a copy of the movie. Check a local movie rental store, or at your local public library, which will likely have it. If you subscribe to Netflix or Blockbuster, they have it on their mailing options.
As you watch the movie:
- Have a notepad and a pen/pencil.
- Whenever something happens that is different from the book make a note of it.
- Enjoy one of the single greatest movies Hollywood has ever produced.
After you watch the movie:
- Review your notes of differences
- Pick a few of the differences and think about why they changed what they did
- Write a one-page compare and contrast essay about the novel and movie, find a unifying element that will keep your paper from becoming a rambling commentary.
Please format and submit your assignment according to the instructions in the syllabus.
