A Wonderful Teacher Time-Saver, Perfect For CCSS
In many grade levels, the Common Core Standards call for comparing the novel text to a different version, especially a film version. That's great, but where can you get reliable information about the comparison to know if student responses are accurate or complete?
This Study Guide compares the novel Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain to the movie version The Adventures of Huck Finn (1993) starring Elijah Wood, Courtney B. Vance, and Jason Robards. Even though this Disney movie omits 24 chapters of the book, it still covers the main plot lines and characters fairly accurately. Too bad the movie left out Tom Sawyer who dominates most of the omitted chapters.
