ENGAGE STUDENTS with this RIGOROUS activity that matches text analysis with celebrity! Students are asked to create a Movie Poster featuring a celebrity they cast for the movie version of the text.

This EDITABLE activity is designed to work with ANY text (novel, short story, etc.) and helps students analyze and understand the deeper meaning of character while incorporating celebrities! The finished products work well as classroom decor.

I would suggest assigning this activity at then END of a shorter piece or at least three-quarters of the way through a novel or play.

The activity contains 3 parts:

  • Step One includes brainstorming character traits and citing evidence
  • Step Two asks students to match his or her character with a fitting celebrity based on that celeb's past roles or experiences
  • Step Three is the creation of the Movie Poster Product


Specific directions:

1. Print the appropriate number of copies (pages 3-4 of this document) for a class set. It directs students to use their own piece of paper.


2. Project page 5 on a screen to show examples.


3. Students will need at least 45 minutes to complete this activity, but I let them do parts one and two in-class and take it home for the last part - just in case they wanted to use their own art supplies.


4. After students have completed the activity you can do a gallery walk or hang them up as if they are “advertising” the latest Hollywood blockbuster!
