This is a great project/ assessment/ test prep activity!!! Students create movie posters based on the Poe text they choose after we have studied them in class (I have them draw out of a hat). The requirements are very specific, so the presentations really do provide an excellent review of these elements prior to the exam. this is a detailed assignment with very specific guidelines. The grading rubric is attached.
I use Hop Frog, The Raven, The Black Cat, The Masque of the Red Death, The facts in the Case of M. Valdemar, and sometimes Berenice.
