This assessment gives an opportunity for students to analyze conflict and themes in novels and literature and connect them to relevant issues today. The final student product allows students to design a movie pitch (prospectus) for their own interpretation of the text that stays true to the major themes and conflicts of the original. The opportunity for student choice and creativity elevates student engagement and encourages collaboration.
