low tech book posters
“Low Tech” – Book Posters
  • Students use Publisher to create book posters
  • No material is original – they locate summaries, author information and reviews online, and transfer the information to posters (8.5 by 11)
  • All sources must be credited – otherwise students do not get credit for the poster
  • Students are able to review all posters and list top three picks for book projects

Book Posters
  • These posters are used for a variety of projects
  • In all cases – students must choose a novel to read – final product is dependent on specific projects
  • Example – Living Museum – students read a Vietnam Era novel and create and interactive display/activity designed to communicate one of the key points of the book
