After you finish reading your selected book:
Design a POSTER advertising this book to your classmates and other interested readers. Poster should be no smaller than 15"x15" and should include the title, author, illustrator (if there is one), drawing or image of main character, setting, list of main characters with short description of each, and conflict. You may share some plot events on your poster but DO NOT give away the resolution to the book! Make sure anything you write to advertise your book is written in your own words. Copying directly from the book is plagiarism. Anything this else you'd like to include to entice others to read the book is up to you! It should reflect an ad to get others to want to read your book. (Think about how a movie trailer makes you want to go to the theater to see the movie.) You may use any media and/or materials you'd like.
Bring your completed poster to school no later than Friday, August 25th.
