Book Jackets

by: Laura Carter

For Mrs. Betts’ English classes 2nd term, students were to read an historical novel.  They also wrote a five-paragraph essay on the books of their choice and then created these amazing “book jackets.”  Each jacket highlights their books in creative use of excerpts, fabric, glitter, ribbon, buttons, and other trims making each “jacket” as unique as the books they read!  Students hung their “jackets” across the room for everyone to enjoy.
