Developed for Year 7 English - Visual literacy unit
Students get a paragraph of information that gives a synopsis of a picture book tex - Boy by Phil Cummings.
Based on the information that they receive students complete a series of questions that brainstorm what images they may like to incorporate in their cover design.
Students design the cover , they are also asked to annotate the cover showing usage of a range of visual literacy techniques (all on the worksheets).
This task was excellent for Year 7 and took three periods - 2 outlining and designing , one period of presentation to the class.
Some wonderful covers were developed.
Questions answers included.
