Our class is nearly finished reading the children’s novel Sounder. I intend to show the Disney film adaptation of the novel to our class in the near future. The film has a MPAA rating of TV-PG. I believe the film is appropriate for the grade level and age of the students in my class. Viewing the film provides us the opportunity to further analyze the themes in the story. Also, we are able to make connections to the various ways stories can be adapted (novel, film, graphic novel, etc.). A permission slip will be sent home or presented to you at conferences tomorrow.
