Students create their own version of a jacket for a book they read. Parts of the book jacket may include a picture of the cover, a summary, reviews, or a section about the author.
Book jackets are a lot more involved than first meets the eye. Students need to comprehend the story's plot and themes enough to provide a good summary without giving away key points and create an appropriate cover image. Use this project as a class on the same book, or encourage students to create book jackets for books in your classroom library.
