Whether the movie is an integral part of your curriculum or a lesson plan for your sub (so you can attend that important Common Core Seminar), our activity has you covered. It will push your students to think, and if they are like our students, they will never sit back and watch a movie passively again. Students pretend they are graphic designers for a prestigious advertising firm. They will consider subject, theme, tone, and genre as they design a poster that will sell the movie to a target audience. A great way for students to use technology to create a project.
This self-contained activity works for any film and is suitable for substitute teachers, homeschoolers, or any subject teacher who wants to enhance the educational value of movies.
It is one component of our Common Core Movie Unit
