I used this activity in my classroom after I reviewed thematic statements with my students using popular Disney movies. I designed this as a group activity, but it could also work well as an independent assignment.
For this activity, students will be designing a poster for The Hate U Give, specifically focusing on theme (think very large one-pager). They will be writing a thematic statement and using textual evidence to show the development of that theme throughout the novel. They will also be sketching an image to represent the theme and providing an explanation about how the message is relevant and powerful in our society today.
I assigned each student in each group a different role so one person wasn't carrying the weight for everyone. This is a great way to differentiate and hold everyone accountable for the work. The roles included a scribe, novel navigator, and artist.
Not only is this a great way to get students to write thematic statements and track the development throughout the novel, but it also encourages creativity and collaboration.
My students were so engaged while working on this activity, and the posters turned out so well that I displayed them in the hallway. I hope your kids love this activity as much as mine did!
