As you teach elements of suspense, discuss what makes movies so suspenseful! The music, lighting, twists and turns in the story, etc. - NEXT, ask students to select a suspenseful or scary movie and create a "suspense poster." This makes a fun project that is also cool to display. It brings about a lot of discussion. (I also allow students to use suspenseful t.v. show series as an alternative). This handout explains the expectations for each poster and elements that must be present. Feel free to add your own flair or requirements to fit your classroom.
