Final Project Options

At the end of the Guerrilla Season book blog project we are asking each student participant to complete one of the following options as a final project. There are six options which should appeal to a variety of learning styles. Please choose a minimum of one - if you wish to do more than one that would be awesome.

These projects will be due on November 27th. We will be posting some examples of student projects on the blog so we encourage you to turn in a digital copy of your work (graphic, word document, MP3 file, etc.) to the following e-mail:

A PDF copy of the following information is also available here.

Option #1 - Design a Book Cover
Imagine that Pat Hughes has contacted you to design a new cover for the paperback version of Guerrilla Season. The cover should include the name of the novel and the name of the author. You decide what images you want on the cover that represent the novel. The image should fit on an standard sheet of paper – around 8” by 10”.

Option #2 - Write an Alternate Ending to the Novel
Here is your chance to write a different ending to the novel Guerrilla Season. You can change the last couple of pages or just simply add on to the current ending. Your alternate ending should be at least 200 words.

Option #3 - The Movie Poster
You are an artist working in Hollywood and your job is to create the movie poster for the upcoming smash hit Guerrilla Season. The movie poster will need to include at minimum the following information: title of the movie, the text “based on the novel by Pat Hughes”, the release date, the names of the two main actors in the movie and a movie rating. You can create this poster using any application you wish but there is an excellent tool available online at

Option #4 - Interview a Character
Sit down and conduct an interview with any of the characters from Guerrilla Season. Your interview should be a minimum of 5 questions. You can turn in a typed paper copy of your interview or record the interview in audio format using the Audacity program and then turn in the MP3 file as your final project.

Option #5 - Comic Book Scene
Take a favorite scene from the novel and create a 9 panel comic strip depicting the scene. You can use makers or colored pencils. Be sure to include some text on the comic strip and include a short description of the scene you are depicting in your comic.

Option #6 - Poem
Write a poem inspired from the novel. You can focus on a character, an event, an emotion or a feeling. You are free to use any format you wish for your poem. You may turn in a typed copy of your poem or turn in an audio version recorded with the Audacity program.

Yes, we would encourage anyone to do multiple projects. Get creative and do a couple! We will post a bunch of them on the blog.
