Cover Design

Usually one of the classes volunteers to create the design for the cover page. This class can either select the name for the Circle publication or ask others to help select a name. They can design the cover with either computer graphics or hand drawings, but it is best to keep in mind that the cover will be copied. Color pictures look nice on the "original" but do not copy very well. It is best to do any art work in black and white. Students often use pictures of states and countries in the design. It is important to put a date on the cover of any publication.

If no one has volunteered to provide a cover, your students may want to design their own cover. They might want to send it to the other classes as well. If more than one school wants to design a cover, both can be sent and each school can decide on which one they want to use.
