This is a great mini-writing assignment opportunity for teachers. Ask students to write their top three scenes from the novel that they can't wait to see in the movie and why those scenes are important. Then have them narrow it down to just one or two scenes. They could read their responses to the class for feedback before posting on the website.
Another learning activity is to have students read all the responses on the website and tally the different scenes. Which one is most popular? To incorporate a little math, have them create a chart with the top 10 most popular anticipated scenes. Then have them put the data into a pie graph.
