We read books and then we look at a filmed version of the story. Sometimes we read and look alternately, in shorter sections. So we did with Around the World in 80 days.
Sometimes we see parts of several movie versions, i.e. the story of Robin Hood we enjoyed in three versions – as drama, as comedy and as a cartoon. We also read several different texts in English about Robin.
Something similar would be useful to do with The Jungle Book:
In school we have shortened editions in English of Kipling’s book, students in Bollnäs recently made a musical on the story and most students have seen Disney’s classic version.
