This content-rich playlist from www.wisewire.com integrates high-quality original instruction with trusted textual, audio, visual, and multimedia resources to guide students through the rigors of comparing and contrasting the experience of reading literature to listening to or viewing a multimedia version of the text. Additionally, teaching notes provide instructors with pedagogical support and tools, and a check for understanding quiz that allows students to practice skills.

Standards

Interpret words and phrases as they are used in a text, including determining technical, connotative, and figurative meanings, and analyze how specific word choices shape meaning or tone.
