Theme Class C

Place Students School name Link Category comment
1 Libby Burgher, Kirstina Michl Abraham Lincoln High School Link The best theme developments kept the themes first in the minds of all readers. The covers, endsheets and title pages set up the theme visually. The division spreads blended the verbal with the visual to develop the theme more with each division. The closing spreads brought the theme full circle. Less can really be more when developing theme. Allow reader the ability to interpret the small nuances of the theme for themselves.
