Digital "Companion to..." Library

Description or Reflection

In Unit 3, Writing in the Humanities, each group was asked to compile a companion "book" to a chosen poet. Each group designed a book cover and generated the front matter, while each group contributed one chapter, or poetry analysis essay, to the book. Each component of the book was laid out in InDesign. The project was completed with the assistance of Jennie Goforth, who came in for one full class period to review graphic design and text layout in InDesign.

The project worked well – students loved seeing their final project come together, and it was a helpful way to get students comfortable with InDesign.
