Make a Brochure

All brochures should contain facts and photos relevant to the topic.

PROCESS:

  1. Provide an assortment of brochures. Encourage students to compare the content and appearance of multiple examples. Which brochures do students like the most? Which do they think are most effective? Why?
  2. Identify an overall topic that you’ve been studying class. In small groups, with a partner or on their own, instruct students to select a focus for a brochure. Encourage them to conduct research to learn more about that topic.
  3. Explain the format that you'd like students to use. Remind students that the purpose of a brochure is to inform people about a specific topic. Then give students time to complete their brochures.

All brochures should contain facts and photos relevant to the topic.
