Now,I have another challenge to you my dear students.
Your task is to explore your community. Create a brochure about place /organization that informs, educates, or persuades. The topic should give enough information to grab and keep the readers interest from start to finish.
You may cover a broad topic but it shouldn’t contain so much information that it overwhelms the reader. Choose 2 to 3 key points about the place/ organization to describe. If there are other important elements, consider listing them in a simple bullet list or chart somewhere in your brochure.
Decide the best format to present your information. Different formats work best for brochures with lots of text, lots of pictures, small blocks of text, lists, charts, or maps.
After creating your brochure, submit a hardcopyand softcopy for evaluation. Post your softcopy in my wordpress e-class. Make a link to your wordpress.
