This is a cross-curricular, creative final assignment for high school classes studying the novel Twisted by Laurie Halse Anderson.
Students come up with several pieces for a movie adaptation of Twisted. They are required to create a movie poster, to select songs for key moments in the novel and justify their choices, and to put together a cast list also with justification. This assignment does not require any filming.
The file includes instructions and graphic organizers for students to write their cast lists, scene and music selections, and justifications. It also includes a checklist for the movie poster requirements. Any size paper can be used for the poster. A free rubric for marking the written portion and movie poster is also available from the store.
