Publisher Brochure Assignment Rubric

Due to the electrical power issues on Friday of last week, 1st & 2nd hour are at different places than 4th, 5th, & 6th hour.  1st and 2nd hour read pages 311, 312, & 313 of their text book and then completed pages 153 & 154 in their Interactive Student Notebook.  4th, 5th, and 6th hour read pages 311, 312, & 313 in their textbooks and then completed pages 153 & 155 of their Interactive Student Notebook.

Tomorrow I will introduce the activity for this chapter.  Students will be looking at three different women micro-entrepreneurs, from three different countries.  We will be looking at the following areas:

Section 3: Grinding Peanuts in Rural Mali Section 4: Selling in Uganda’s “Poor Man’s Market”                                                                                             Section 5: Cooking Up Comfort Food in Botswana

Students will then be placed into groups of 2 or 3 to create a pamphlet to promote micro-enterprises.

They will need to picture themselves working for an organization that educates women in developing countries in Africa about micro-entrepreneurs. Their task will be to design a pamphlet for these women. It should be engaging and easy to understand. It should also answer the Essential Question:

How are women micro-entrepreneurs in developing countries changing their communities?

We will be using Microsoft Office Publisher to create a three paneled brochure/pamphlet.  We will begin this project either tomorrow or Wednesday.  It will depend where we are.  Stay tuned for more information to follow.   I have included a copy of the rubric that I will be using to score these projects.  Rubric for brochure-24dobia


On another note, this week are Parent-Teacher Conferences.  They will take place on Wednesday & Thursday of this week from 4:00pm-7:00pm.  I will be in the gymnasium.  I look forward to see all of you that can make it.
