Over the past month, students worked in pairs to plan, research and create informative flyers and brochures. These brochures fulfilled curriculum requirements in media literacy, and fulfilled a real purpose. The Alliston & District Humane Society will be desktop publishing the best of what our class produced and using these materials to educate young people about animal welfare.
A previous BLOG post shows students researching and planning their brochures: Using Media Skills to Educate Others, Part 1.
Here are the finished products. Click on any photo to enlarge it:
Students found "working for a client" to be highly motivating. The quality of most of their work is exemplary. At the end of the process, the finished brochures were circulated around the class and students had an opportunity to contribute ideas about each brochure's strengths and deficits. These ideas were written on post-it notes and affixed to the brochures. Two representatives from the Alliston & District Humane Society will be coming to our class on Wednesday, March 8, 2013 to pick up the brochures and thank students for their hard work.
