How to use this resource:

This resource is a creative alternative to standardized testing to assess students on comprehension and high-level thinking. I use this resource in combination with my Literature Circle Unit because it is applicable to any novel; however, you may assign this as a summative task for any novel study.

I introduce this assignment by reading through the Movie Trailer Assignment Outline with my class. This handout provides instructions and expectations for the movie trailer, along with the reflective writing assignment included with this assessment.

The rubric included with this resource is provided in both editable and ready-to-print formats. After introducing these expectations, I show students the Student Exemplar so that they can engage with expectations on a visual level.

After an overview of the assignment, I introduce the Peer and Self-Evaluation Form. Students should understand that they will be responsible for reflecting on their work, as well as the work of their group mates.

Finally, I distribute the Student Planner and Task Checklist. These resources will support students in establishing deadlines, and remaining on track to turn in their assignments on time.

To support distance learning and 1:1 classrooms, all of the handouts included in this resource are also available in digital format. Simply follow the instructions provided in this resource to copy these files directly to your Google Drive.

Teacher tip: In order to create cooperative and efficient groups, I use Mondays Made Easy's Student Personality Inventory | Compatibility Quiz for the Secondary Classroom resource.
