PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Analyzing a book cover is an engaging anticipatory activity in order to “hook” students for a novel study. The analysis chart allows students to rhetorically analyze the images, words, colors, and layout of the cover and brainstorm their notices and questions. The “connotations” box is a place to explain what associations one might have with specific colors, symbols, images, and words they document in the bottom left box.

Following the analysis, students write a short prediction of what they think will happen in this novel; they then expand that prediction into a written book cover blurb that they might find on the actual book.

Suggestions for variations on the activity and for group work and presentations are included in the Teacher Notes.

Included: Teacher Notes, Book Cover Analysis Chart with Prediction, and the Final Book Jacket Blurb Written Assignment.
