Analyzing Adaptations

Today you’re going to watch five examples of adaptations from last year. I want you to watch each one TWICE. On the second time through, you need to write down answers to the following questions. Do it on a paper you can hand in. (Give me a couple of sentences for each; you need to explain why something was either a strength or a weakness.)

1. What were the strengths of this adaptation?

2. What were the weaknesses of this adaptation?

Answer those questions for each of the five. At the end of the hour, put your name on it and turn it in. We’ll talk about them late this week.

Denzel Washington

Randy Pausch

The Dalai Lama
