Students Brainstorm and Plan Brochure
The following are directions for students to make a brochure.
Step 1: Decide on a purpose and a specific topic. Most brochures are made to inform the reader about the topic. However, if the brochure is about a country, the student needs to decide if it will be a travel brochure, a brochure about historical sites, a brochure about water ways, a brochure about fine dining, etc.
Students may need to do some research to complete the brochure. They should list their resources on the bottom of one panel.
Step 2: Make a draft of the six panels. There are three panels on each side of the paper. It can be folded many ways, but the six panels need to be planned out on a piece of notebook paper.
Front Panel: This should have the title, name of the student, and basic information about the topic. A picture, clip art or small piece of artwork about the topic is a nice addition.
Other Five Panels: Display information with subtitles, pictures, clip art, and designs.
Students should decide what main information they want to display and tell about their topics. For example, if students are making a travel brochure about a country, one panel could be about the beaches in the country. If there are many beaches, students will need to choose the most important ones to them. A picture is always a nice addition.
Note: Many younger students want to place too much text or too many pictures on each panel. They key is to have no more than three sub-topics per panel. One or two is usually the best. Also, students need to work on writing concisely so that there is some white space (area without text or pictures) on each panel.
