Jekyll and Hyde Part 2 - Video Lesson

(0)
This is part two of my 6 part series of Robert Louis Stevenson's Doctor Jekyll and Mr Hyde. It is an animated movie adaptation of the book and as in most such cases it does not adhere strictly to the original work. I made it with the idea of using different media as a comparison to the Robert Louis Stevenson work. This second video covers the part of the story where the lawyer Utterson attends a party at the house of his friend, Dr. Henry Jekyll. Later, after the other guests have left he has a discussion with Jekyll about the dangers of his relationship with Edward Hyde. Later, a maid witnesses a late night altercation between Hyde and an old man that results in the evil Hyde murdering the old man. The movie and comic book style script included her are a fun and engaging way of introducing students to this classic gothic horror story. The materials included would be ideal for bringing the story to younger learners or students of ESL As well as the video, which is in mov format, this product also includes; 1. Two comic book style versions of the movie script in PDF. One in colour which can be used for presentation purposes by the teacher or on students devices such as notebook computers or iPads. The other is BW for easier printing. Both comic books also include writing and question tasks at the end of the story. 2. A PDF worksheet for students to practice some of the vocabulary which may be new to them. This also includes a separate answer print. 3. A teacher explanation outlining the purpose and uses of the video and comic book and also containing the answers to the questions on the comic book.
