A fun way for students to express their understanding of a story, its themes, and main characters, is to create a movie poster. As students read the works of Edgar Allen Poe, they will likely have images in their mind of what the story would look like in real life! Have students create a movie poster, complete with a title, casting, and an image that conveys important information from the story.
If you'd like to tie this into your Poe unit, consider assigning each student a different work to complete a poster for. When students complete their posters, they can be printed out and hung in the classroom.
