As we watch the film of Persepolis, select one word that is in both the film and the book. You might make a list of words that you find intriguing in the film subtitles and then look for them in the book. Writing by hand, make an argument about how the use of one word differs in both the film and the book. How is the word you have selected significant to the moment from which it emerges? What does it tell us about the film and book, respectively? Drawing on the templates in They Say/I Say, consider too how one might disagree with your observations and use these considerations to make a stronger argument.
We will share our responses.
