Students will choose either a hard-cover book form, or create a new non-traditional form, and produce an edition of at least 3 copies. The book should contain (in some form): a title, a writer’s bio, and a colophon. Illustrations are not required. The books should be identical, unless the student has previously discussed it with the teacher. In addition to the final book project, students will write a report of at least two pages, using the given self-assessment questions as a jumping-off point. Students will also price their books and develop a small display for potential sales at May 3rd reading.
One-page book plan, including a book concept description, list of materials you plan to use and
explanation of why you have chosen the form you chose.
One-page progress report, explaining any changes to the plan, discoveries, AND at least one rough
mock-up of book with text, graphics, etc.
One-on-one meetings. Bring latest mock-ups and one-page progress report.
Books due. Turn in one copy for teacher to keep, as well as two-page self-evaluation, using the weekly questions list. Have prepared pricing and small display for selling your extra books.
