This is a great book report project that allows students to exercise their creativity, as well as demonstrate comprehension of a book. The assignment sheet includes instructions for students to create a dust jacket, or book cover, for a book of their choice. Students are given instructions for completing each section of the dust jacket including the front and back covers, and front and back inside flaps. The project reinforces the following elements of fiction: plot, setting, theme, and characters.
The project can be used for free reading books, or can be used as a project with a book you are reading as a class. Students can present their projects to the class orally, as well as by displaying them on a bulletin board or the classroom walls.
The document can be modified according to the needs of your class.
