A fun project where students choose an author, research about that author's life, and then create a book jacket placing a picture of the author on the cover, and information about the author's life on the inside flaps.
1) Step-by-step instructions on how to assemble the book jacket project, list of authors (although this project works with any author, historic figure, hero, etc. with slight modification)
2) Comprehensive grading rubric for the finished project
3) Guided notes to help students locate relevant information as they research their author.
