Title: Packing Tools for Success beyond Middle School
Deck: Take P.R.I.D.E. In Your Life!
Author: Essie Childers
Book Description: This is an inspirational book/journal for young teens getting ready to enter high school. It explains a few basic tools (personal character traits) that will help them go from middle school, through high school, and on to college or higher education.
PRIDE stands for:
Determination & Dedication
Design notes: We need a fun (not goofy), "cool" cover that engages these young teenagers.
-> Initial concept is to use a backpack or multiple backpacks arranged somehow, to represent the idea of "packing for success."
->A school notebook with a checklist of the PRIDE tools could be an option.
->A map or journey to the future could be an option. Sign posts could be the PRIDE tools. If this concept is used, it could encompass the entire cover (front and back)
It does not have to have pictures of real people, but If you include any teens on the cover, they need to be wearing current U.S. styles - but not designer labels.
Any people images should include African American, Hispanic and Caucasian (additional ethnicities are OK to include, but African American and Hispanic are a must if you include any people).
