The more thorough and the more creative you are in decorating your book, pages and sections with drawings, pictures, photographs, images, or videos the higher the grade will be. • Any presentation that does not contain all 12 sections will receive a lower grade regardless of how fancy it is. Any book that is “haphazardly” put together will NOT receive a grade. Late assignment will be severely penalized.
