Begin by decorating your COVER (AUTHOR)PAGE:

  • Class Information:

The name of the courseThe class period The Teacher: Ms. Anders Your name

B. Visual Content: Literary/Grammatical Information

Include at least three references to literature or grammar that you like or are interested in. These can include books, movies, plays, signs, symbols, etc. Draw the images on your cover and label them if you feel it’s necessary.

C. Personal Information:

Identify one aspect of yourself as a person or as a student and place it on the cover. If you are a skateboarding expert, use the skateboard as a symbol for yourself. If you play the violin, use the violin as a symbol for yourself and include it in your cover design. The symbol can be your favorite thing, a hobby, or something special about you.
