Several of you chose to adapt scenes from Of Mice and Men for your ToonDoo projects, and many of those adaptations dealt with the final scene in the novella. I think these adaptations are wonderful examples of how the person adapting a text puts his/her own spin on the original.
Still, others of you were inspired by the poetry we have looked at this semester.
In addition to your ToonDoo works, I loved the adaptations you made of the Collins poems. I thought it was interesting that Virginia was the only one to include actual lines of the poems, but you were still able to capture many of the emotions and ideas in the poems with the images you chose. Great job illustrating how much weight images can carry in visual adaptations of literary works! Unfortunately, the color scanner didn't do a great job picking up some of the crayon colors and cut off things that were close to the edge of the page, but I assure you they all look awesome in color!
Most of you chose to adapt "Another Reason I don't Keep a Gun in the House."
|Tj's adaptation (nice use of the all blue pack of crayons, Tj!)|
Alaina and Donna were brave enough to tackle "Directions," which is full of visual images.
I'm so proud of the work you've been doing this semester and can't wait to see what you come up with for your final projects.
