This lesson teaches and assesses students knowldge on physical parts of a book and what infromation is contained in/on the various parts of a book. After listening to the "problem", the students explore the parts of the book and work collaboratively to figure out a solution to the "problem". Lastly, the students are expected to recreate the bookcover for a familiar children's literacture book.
This is a great idea to have students delve deeper into the meaning of a book. I am certain that books have not sold due to a bad book cover and this lesson helps students consider not only what the book is about, but what to highlight and how to sell the book with it's cover. I enjoy allowing students to design on the computer as well, it turns working on the computer into more of a design tool and creates novelty for the students as the create a useful item.

This lesson covers many aspects of learning. It has combined language arts with art and technology. I think students would be very engaged while doing the lesson. Not only are they learning about parts of a book, but incorporating the idea of how to make the book more appealing to buy also incorporates economics/marketing to a sort.

This lesson was written to serve as a guide for colleagues as we begin a Problem Based Learning initative within the school district. This lesson is for students in Grade 1. This lesson is scheduled to be implimented January 2012. Any feedback before then would be much appreciated.
