This project is designed to be used in combination with an independent novels project, literature circle, or class novel.
The students need to be able to conduct research about the author to write a brief biography. Instructions are provided for writing the biography, summary of the novel, a brief introduction to the novel, and creating all of the elements found on a book jacket.
I have used this assignment in conjunction with Springboard activities and with students in my Language Arts Lab class. I have also found that this project is a successful way to modify a summative assessment for students on an IEP, or who have missed a lot of school.
The assignment and instructions are designed to be printed on a double-sided sheet of notebook paper.
