My story goes as such:

I am a senior in high school and I am entering AP Literature and Composition this fall semester as one of my courses. Over the summer such students as myself had projects assigned, one including a scrapbook for <i>One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest</i> by Ken Kesey.

My question is... what medium should I use for the scrapbook? (aka, last year for <i>Fast Food Nation</i> I made every page in the shape of a different fast food item (burger, fries, milkshake, happy meal toy, etc)

I need 6 pages, and even if I just use the front page as something creative and have each page be cut out in the outline of the title page it would work. (I don't want to just use a rectangular piece of paper, ya know?)

Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated! Smiley

Maybe you could make a book shirt out of white fabric and tie up the sleeves to resemble a strait jacket?  When I think of this book/movie, I think of:

Native American
Evil Nurse
Escape through Broken Window

So maybe you could use some feathers, put some red crosses to symbolize the nurse, and have a window that opens up to reveal something else.

I hope this helps. 

I can't wait to see how your project comes out, it sounds really cool.

oh oh oh!!!

dont forget the fishing trip, and the crazy night with the women and the booze and all the craziness!!!

or you could do a tribute page to each character

(Ken Kesey is my FAVORITE author lol)
and i'm taking the same english class as you (not at the same school, but same AP course)... my summer assignment is a little less fun. lol.
