Flyers, pamphlets, brochures...Authentic tasks!

A brochure can be a great way for students to demonstrate their learning. Especially if the "target audience" is a legitimate recipient. Research on a country becomes a travel flyer, research on a disease becomes a Health Canada brochure, research on an ancient civilization becomes a pamphlet for a new History TV series.

Depending on your students' computer access, doing it all on-screen means that the finished product can be emailed, sent home for parents to see, or even projected "big" for the class to view.

Here are some helps for your brochures:
