This project provides a way for students to analyze what they have read and create something of their own. Students need to make judgements about the literature and these judgements affect the choices they make in terms of images and music.

Before beginning the project teachers need to apply for an Animoto educator's account . This will allow you and your students to create longer videos. When students register for their accounts they will need to enter a code provided to you by the Animoto team.

This project will work with any piece of literature, but I have found it to be best suited for shorter works. I used the short stories The Necklace by Guy de Maupassant and The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe .
