Different mediums and the tone of the text | Reading | Khan Academy

How does a text change when it goes from one medium to another, when it changes from a written work to a visual or audio one? That feeling it gives off can change—this might be why you were disappointed by the film adaptation of a favorite book, or why you love the adaptational changes someone made to a book you *didn’t* especially like.

Khan Academy is a nonprofit organization with the mission of providing a free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere. We offer quizzes, questions, instructional videos, and articles on a range of academic subjects, including math, biology, chemistry, physics, history, economics, finance, grammar, preschool learning, and more. We provide teachers with tools and data so they can help their students develop the skills, habits, and mindsets for success in school and beyond. Khan Academy has been translated into dozens of languages, and 15 million people around the globe learn on Khan Academy every month. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, we would love your help!
