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 Giver, they will start to see recurring imagery and themes. Have them create a movie poster, complete complete with a title, casting, and an image that conveys important information from the story.
When students complete their posters, they can be printed out and hung in the classroom and you can have a class discussion on why students chose to create the poster they did.
