I was pleased to find and share this lesson plan with teachers in our district as it supports CCSS.RL.8.7 - comparing and contrasting text with a live or filmed production!!!

As our program has a limited time, I have also used Stephen King's short story "Battleground." The film was an episode on the TV program "Nightmares and Dreamscapes" and is available through Amazon.
