Assignment:
  • Go back to MyON to view the cover of Feliz dia de Gracias, Gus!. Then go back to view the first scene in Assignment America.
  • Think about what the cover of a book or CD might be if each was recreated as another genre. Guiding Questions: What color background would you use? What text? What style font and what color for the text would you use? Where would the text be placed? What would be the subject matter of any pictures and what style pictures would you need to use? What would be the setting for the picture? What size would the picture be compared to the text? You might want to go to Amazon.com to look at book covers and CD covers for ideas.
