What is a one-pager?
A one-pager is a way to show your understanding of the novel that you read. Follow the directions below.
Your one-pager should include the following:
Your name, the title of your novel, and the author’s name. This information may be larger than the other text, have a border, stand out by color, etc.
A border must be included and it should add some meaning to your one-pager. It should not simply be a different color. To add meaning a border may contain words, phrases, symbols, images, etc.
The bulk of your one-pager should demonstrate your understanding of the novel. This is your opportunity to show what you know. Any and all information you have learned about your novel should be included on the one-pager. Information should be displayed with a combination of images and texts. Use text and images to tell about the main characters, setting, and theme of the novel. You may also include your favorite quotes from your book.
Illustrations and diagrams are a MUST to be included on a one-pager. They should be labeled and/or
described to explain their complete meaning. All illustrations should be hand drawn and should
be neat and COLORFUL. Draw your illustrations with a pencil first, then trace over them with colored pencils or fine-tipped markers.
All text should be neat, spelled correctly, and grammatically correct. Write text with a pencil
first, then trace over it with a pen or fine-tipped marker.
Your one-pager should be neat. COLOR is a must! Very little white space should remain on your one-pager. Colorful background should support your understanding of the novel. Do not overfill or underfill your page.
NOW...choose a one-pager template from this packet, and start showing off what you discovered while reading your novel. We can’t wait to see what you bring back in the fall!
