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 Crucible, they will start to see certain themes and imagery reappear and may also have some ideas about critical scenes within the play. Have students create a movie poster, complete with a title, casting, and an image that conveys important information from the story.
To make this a class assignment, consider giving each student a different act or scene to focus on. When students complete their posters, they can be printed out and hung in the classroom.
