Class Experience

Learners will be exposed to both the book and movie versions of a story. They will learn that although not every detail can be included in a movie from a book, that the major themes and pieces are still present.  They will learn what the words "compare" and "contrast" mean and be able to do comparisons in the class and carry those forth for future books and movies that they might be interested in.  They will find connections in the story.  We will put together the parts of the story that bring it full circle from the beginning to the end of this delightful story. Learner will see families over generations of time and how the actions of one generation can affect many generations.

Students will be expected to read and watch the movie on their own time and be prepared to discuss each in class.  It is important to keep on schedule with their assignments rather than be ahead or behind.  Having the content fresh in their minds will be helpful to them in class discussions.  The book is written on the sixth grade level and would be enjoyed by good readers from 4th to 8th grade.  The AR grade level is listed as 4.6.  
1) The book "Holes" by Louis Sachar as well as 2) the movie of the same title.
Classroom discussion will be the informal assessment used.  
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
The camp in the story is a boys camp.  There are no girls at the campl except for the "warden" who owns the camp. One of themes of the story is that an Egyptian "Madam Zeroni" fortold of a curse on the family if the boy did not follow through with a promise. The story is about how that boy did not follow through but generations later, Stanley did keep the promise and break the curse. 
 The book "Holes" by Louis Sachar as well as the movie of the same title.
