Creative project for after finishing the novel where students redesign the entire book cover (front, spine, and back cover).
They are to consider and include important symbols, characters, and scenes from the novel in their overall design.
Specific instructions on what is required on each part of the novel design is included in a list.
Detailed rubric is included with the following criteria:
- Front cover
- Back cover (all three consider required elements, design choices, colour use, etc.)
- Neatness and Effort
- Spelling and Grammar
A space is provided for teacher feedback in comment form. Total of 30 marks on rubric.
This assignment is usually a great way to get students to consider what was important in the story and present their thinking in a creative format. Teachers can decide whether this is completed in class time, as a homework assignment, or it's also great for a substitute day.
Great for potential research on the First Nations of Canada, their history, historical legends and myths important to First Nations cultures, etc. to include in their design.
Often my students need more than one 80 minute block of a class. I give them at least 2 classes, and some time to complete at home before a due date.
