  • You Tube

    You can stream several adaptations of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde on youtube.com. Additionally, several clips of transformation scenes are available. Try search terms “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” and “Dr. Jekyll transformation.” Please preview all clips before showing in the classroom.

  • Netflix

    Netflix is a movie rental and streaming service that requires membership and costs a monthly fee. If you are already a customer, it is a good resource for streaming clips of transformation scenes without having to have the physical DVDs.

  2. Prepare copies of the Freud Civilization and its Discontents for each student.
  3. Prepare copies of the Small Group Discussion Guide (1 for every 4 students).
  4. Prepare copies of the Storyboard Printouts or arrange to access the Stapleless Book Interactive.
