1 Wanted - Interactive Banned Book Poster

An assignment was created using Google Classroom.  You can share the hyperdoc link using this method or add the link to a webpage.


Students were given a week to complete the assignment.  The posters were hung in the hallway during Banned Book week.  

On Friday of Banned Book Week, we had Banned Book Character Day so students could dress up like their favorite Banned Book.  



Student Instructions

Students used the Hyperdoc to guide them through the process.  

For the video portion, it is recommended to use Adobe Sparks but anything would be acceptable, even PowerPoint.

There is a video on how to create a QR code to add to the poster.


The rubric is given at the end of to reflect upon your creation before turning it in to the teacher.
