Creating a Book Jacket/Dust Cover
I’m constantly seeking ways for my students to use their computer literacy skills that will incorporate other subjects too. Responding to literature, science math or history are definitely ways to integrate core curriculum into my lessons. I have done the following in my classroom:
Student created video of math concept
Student created explainer on the idea of DNA
Student created video explaining ideas learned in a unit, using graphics and text to demonstrate their understanding.
Claymation video on the Human Reproductive System
These are only a few ways I’ve supported students creative process in their learning; however, this lesson will enable students to recreate a bookcover of their favorite book or one they are reading for literature.
Students will include in their book cover redesign:
Summary of Author
Discuss the theme, plot and hint to the climax
What you enjoyed/didn’t like about the book
Students will use Google Drawing, Adobe Digital Publisher or Photoshop, if available
