Often, a story will seem to be deprived of beauty or meaning by the changes made in a film adaptation. On other occasions, watching a film version will enrich the experience of the written story. In response to both Kurt Vonnegut’s “Harrison Bergeron” AND the film 2081, write a well-developed paragraph, answering the following question:
In your opinion, what is the most effective medium for telling the “Harrison Bergeron” narrative: film or text? Explain your answer using specific details that relate to each version, as well as thoughtful reasoning.
Due, for completion on October 19th, 2018.
Remember to make a clear point by crafting a concise topic sentence, provide evidence directly from the text to support your point, and argue for the significance of your evidence by explaining how your chosen quote(s) helps to support your point. In other words, remember to PEE in your paragraph!
