Topic
To compare and contrast a book and a film based on that

Prewriting Examination
EXAMINATION NUMBER
50046900
122 Examination, Lesson 6
Purpose
To show how adaptations from novel to film affect the story’s
elements, such as plot, character and theme in significant
ways.
Method
1. To prepare an outline or graphic organizer that will serve
as the foundation for a 1800 – 2000 word comparison
and contrast essay.
2. To begin the research process by preparing a bibliography
in Modern Language Association citation and
documentation format that consists of at least six
sources.
n 2 primary sources: the book and the film
n 4 secondary sources: book and film reviews, critiques,
articles about the book and film, profiles of
the author and/or the director and actors that focus
on the content of the work.
Audience
Junior and senior-level distance education students enrolled
at Penn Foster College
Process
Brainstorm
1. Watch the Comparison and Contrast lecture notes video
on your My Courses page. This video reviews the essay
requirements and comparison and contrast techniques.
2. Read the book and watch the film you’ve chosen to write
about.
Prewrite
1. Develop the content for your outline/graphic organizer
by freewriting about the changes you’ve noticed. Review
pages 366-369 of your textbook and identify a few bases
of comparison:
Examination, Lesson 6 123
a. Are there are scenes omitted or added? How does this
affect the sequence of events?
b. What is the central conflict of the book? The film? How
do the author and the director present the conflict? Are
the stakes higher in one or the other?
c. Is the main character’s personality different in the film?
How is it different? How does it affect the way we understand
his/her character? Is the narrator of the story the
same? Does any element of the story change because the
audience cannot be in the narrator’s head at all times?
How does this change your understanding of the characters
or the story?
d. How is theme revealed throughout the book and the film?
4. Now that you’ve compared and contrasted the book and the
film, freewrite (page110-111) on what the significance of
these changes are to help you develop your ideas for the
thesis statement.
5. Work through the Guided Writing Assignment for
Comparison and Contrast prewriting on page 387-388 of
your textbook. This assignment will help you determine your
purpose and focus for your comparison and contrast essay.
Research
1. The book and the film are your primary sources and count
as two sources in your bibliography and toward the research
requirement for your essay. Be sure that you have carefully
noted where you found them, either online or in print.
2. You will need a minimum of four other sources. These
sources can be reviews, articles, and interviews related to
the book and film.
3. Go to the library. Your Penn Foster digital library provides
resources that will help you to meet the research requirements
for your essay, but keep in mind that research in a
library, even a digital one, is not like searching online. To
learn more, visit the Penn Foster Library site on the
Community here: http://community.pennfoster.edu/community/academic‐
groups/digital‐library‐information‐literacy.
124 Advanced Composition
n. Expanded Academic ASAP is a subscription-only
database available in Penn Foster’s digital library.
You can access the database by clicking on the
Library Services link in your Student Portal. See the
“Academic Support and Online Resources” section in
the introduction to this study guide.
4. Search online, but remember that you will need to evaluate
your sources carefully; review page 583-592 in your
textbook.
a. Reviews by book and film critics
b. Interviews with the author and/or the director and
actors
c. Profiles by journalists and other professional writers
