My Movie Poster
Students create "My Movie Poster" using a combination of physical tools and computer.
Students reflect upon an event in their lives that are "rich" in emotion and images.
Students draft an idea and sketch elements of the poster.
Before they begin, we talk about ways the computer apps can be used to integrate into their idea.
Note: we look at iconic images after the assignment is introduced and before their final sketch is created.
These products that are created are amazing: stimulate design thinking, force young students to consider typography, perspective and instant views of "what is important" to use my poster as an advertisement for my movie story.
