Resource Two: American Literature Literary Periods Digital Poster Project

Are you searching for a unique way to assess your students understanding of American Literature Literary Periods, and the distinct characteristics of American Lit Literary Movements?

Enhance your instruction and add an additional activity, review, or assessment with this creative, high-interest American Literature project!

Students will create dynamic digital posters illustrating American literary periods with images, texts, and graphics representative of that specific literary movement.
There are two different project options for differentiation and to provide flexibility as to when you should implement this activity.

In the first project option, students will create two digital posters for the same American Literature literary period. This project option can be implemented as you are covering literature for that specific time frame or use this as a way to assess students once you have completed a literary movement.

The second option allows students to choose five literary movements and design a poster representative of each. This project would provide a great mid-year review or can be used as an end of the year American Literature assessment.

Materials, such as the grading rubric and student project handout, are provided for both of these options. Teachers choose the one they want to use!

This high-interest technology project uses the free, user-friendly site, Adobe Spark! You can create the dynamic digital posters with ANY device (including iPads)!

This resource includes project examples created using Adobe Spark for each American Literature Literary Period!

Students can view examples for the following literary movements:

Native American, Puritanism/Colonialism, Enlightenment/Age of Reason, Romanticism/American Gothic, Transcendentalism, Realism and Naturalism, Modernism, Harlem Renaissance, Postmodernism and Contemporary

The American Literary Movement posters will serve as a project model while sparking your students’ imaginations and motivating them to create and design their own!
