  • 2. Introduction  This assessment activity requires you to develop and craft a visual essay that develops, sustains, and structures key ideas from a text you have studied. You can work individually or in a group.  If you are working in groups, you will each need to fill out a log of your progress.  You will be assessed on how effectively your visual essay communicates your ideas.
  • 3. What is a visual essay?  A visual essay consists of images and text with a voice-over and music and/or sound effects.  A quality visual essay uses visual and verbal language techniques that are clearly linked to ideas from a source text. In our case, Tell Tale Heart. It introduces core ideas and then progressively adds detail and analysis so the audience understands important ideas from the source text.  There are a number of visual texts on the Internet.
  • 4. 4 What does your essay need to have? Suggestion: work in PowerPoint or Keynote 1.Have a focus question based on a theme from Tell Tale Heart. 2. Show how this theme develops through the story by giving examples and quotes. Link it to characters. Link to the mood. Link to the author's intention and the audience's response. 3. Think of ways this could be visually represented. 4. Tie it all together with voice over and music.
  • 5. Possible focus could be:  TIME in Tell Tale Heart. Think of the many references to clocks, ticking and the time of night.  The Home: The old man should feel free in his own home. Yet he is observed, killed and buried within his home.  Madness versus illness: Was it the narrators keen hearing that drove him mad? Was he simply deluded?

Creating your visual essay Revisit the following list of questions as you develop your visual essay and work to refine your text. • Does my text progressively add detail to the ideas I am trying to communicate? How can I ensure that it does this? • Am I structuring (ordering and grouping) my ideas in a way that communicates them effectively? • Have I chosen language techniques to create specific effects, and do these support the core ideas from the source text that I am focusing on? • Am I revisiting and critiquing my use of language and checking that it commands the attention of my readers/audience? Am I seeking advice from my teacher as I do this? • Do the ideas I am communicating link clearly and closely with the source text?
