KIDSNET, Washington, DC.
This study guide covers the new television version of one of Mark Twain's most popular stories, "The Prince and the Pauper," the classic tale of two boys whose curiosity about each other's lives leads them to switch places and, in the process, learn valuable lessons about outward appearances and true compassion. The guide summarizes the story, gives a short biography of Mark Twain, and provides discussion questions and student activities for Grades 4-6 and Grades 7-9. It also proposes educational objectives, gives tips for summer reading, suggests summer reading activities, explains how students can meet many standards for English and language arts as well as media literacy, and lists additional resources--books, videos, and websites.
