  4. After the students have finished the book, the students will go to the library for a class period in order to begin working on their flyers.
  5. Introduce the flyer assignment in the library by showing an Example Flyer (based on a book that is not on the It List). Give examples of ways that the flyer can be created as well as the logistical aspects of how to submit.
  6. Show the students the different aspects of the flyer including the Rubric.
  7. Allow students the rest of the class period to begin the initial work on their flyers and inform students to work on their flyers outside of class as necessary.
