Your Life, Your Movie Poster (CTE)


Students will learn about story structure and movie posters then create a movie poster and featuring their story.


Students will conclude their storytelling journey with a movie poster and original story about themselves. We will first learn about movie poster design then use photography, and photoshop to create a movie poster that captures a glimpse of the story of their life. An overview about story structure will be reviewed so that students can write a story about what this movie would be about to accompany the poster.
