London, Jack. To Build a Fire. VS
Your comparison/contrast research paper should explore and analyze the similarities and differences between the story or play and its film version. Your analysis should consider, but is not limited to, any changes to storyline, characterizations, setting, and tone. It should also consider whether or not changes to the original story or play are successful in the film version. If the two versions are very similar with few changes, you can analyze whether the decision to adapt faithfully was a sound one. You must use at least three credible outside sources in addition to the story or play and the film. If you wish to select a different reading from your textbook with its film version, you must request permission from your instructor no later than the end of Week 2. Topic proposal and three proposed sources are due by the end of Week 3. You must also include an analysis of how each source will help you and how each is credible. Rough draft of your research paper is due to the discussion board for peer review by Thursday of Week 6.
