Enhance your instruction and add an additional activity, review, or assessment with this creative, high-interest British Literature project!
Students will create dynamic digital posters illustrating British 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 British 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 British 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)!

Students can view examples for the following literary movements:

Anglo-Saxon, Medieval, Renaissance, Neoclassical, Romanticism, Victorian, Modernism, Postmodernism and Contemporary
