A sample of the hundreds of magazine covers from the US and around the world and how they report the Coronavirus pandemic on their covers.  Have students brainstorm a list of every possible business or industry–then invite them to locate a magazine cover that portrays the virus.  Invite students to consider: which images are used to communicate the virus; how each cover is different; how they might be similar; who is the audience for each; determine a magazine’s circulation; how one or more might communicate/represent fear; what techniques are used to attract attention? Determine how many magazines are news, sports, arts, medical, family, business; which ones might not be represented?  Invite your students to create their own cover, using magazine cover software. Find a cover that’s not listed? Send it to me: fbaker1346@gmail.com    Magazine Cover Design (explained)  Even more covers at CoverJunkie
