A Book Jacket is an alternative to a traditional Book Report. This Book jacket asks that the students discuss theme, character, conflict, plot, and setting. In addition, students create a catchy cover.
This is a great assignment once a class has finished a whole class novel, or for students to use after finishing an independent reading book.
Students often enjoy this task because it asks them to do more than they are used to. For example, students do not just identify and explain the conflict in their book; they write from the characters perspective and discuss if they were the character if they would have handled the conflict differently. They do similar writing tasks for setting and character.
This product does include a DETAILED RUBRIC that covers each section of the task.
