This movie is a good teaching tool just because it is so different from the book.
22 February 2014 | by jd1152See all my reviews

As a fan of this book, I truly understand the feelings of the other raters. It is a wonderful, heartwarming book that my students love to read. One of the ways I try to teach my students that books usually are better than the movies that are made from them is by showing them the movie. They get very excited when they know they will also be watching the movie- anything that motivates them to read is terrific! Anyway, this movie/book serves as an excellent teaching tool because I have the students complete a Venn Diagram while they are watching, noting the ways they are alike and different. This is something they are required to do for the new CCSS. However we can interest this new generation of learners works for me!
