"The Hound of the Baskervilles" and "Hamlet": Guide for Educators.
KIDSNET, Washington, DC.
This study guide discusses the world premiere of two made-for-television movies of classics of English literature: "The Hound of the Baskervilles" and "Hamlet." The guide first provides a synopsis of the story of "The Hound of the Baskervilles" and gives a brief biography of the author, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. It offers discussion questions and activities for students in social studies and language arts as well as media literacy. The guide then provides a similar treatment for William Shakespeare's "Hamlet." For viewing both films, it offers teaching suggestions in English and language arts, in social studies, and in media literacy, and gives tips to teachers for using the guide. The guide also lists additional resources--books, videos, and websites. (NKA)
