Product Description
A pair of creative projects that work with any novel or short story. Students will create a book cover or movie poster. The book cover includes images/ motifs from the text as well as a short blurb about the story. The movie poster includes casting the actors/ actresses to play the characters of the story as well as a symbol/motif and a tag line. Self-reflections included to examine the elements used in their project. A fun creative project for a break or to wrap up the story.

At its basic level, both book cover and movie poster design is about using show, don’t tell. Instead of using words to show, images are used to convey the main idea of the story. This can relate to lessons or discussions about show, don’t tell.

Both the book cover and the movie poster sections include a Teacher’s Guide for discussion with information and things to discuss or research. This allows the project to be expanded to a discussion of visual medium (either in class or cross curricular). The projects can also stand alone as a quick creative project for the end of the story. Book cover can also work for a middle-of-the-story reading break.

Student Samples included.

Can be done in any media, such as crayon, collage, or digital!

Item is a single file PDF.
