For this assignment you are submitting the brochure, or finished product. Please have a look at the samples I provided under Course Documents for ideas or inspiration. Think about your own travel experiences, or times when you picked up a brochure or flyer. Sometimes there is not enough information to do a destination justice. In this brochure, you will be explaining why your particular destination/region/location is significant, why people should consider visiting.
Questions to consider as you prepare this document:
Am I addressing the historical significance of this place?
Am I discussing what took place here and why?
Do my images from my online search resonate with this destination?
Why should people visit this place today?
What is so interesting and cool about this place?
You could think beyond history! For example, maybe the architecture, the city planning, the town square, industries (agricultural/tech/factory) are relevant to a specific region or locale.
Your brochure could be spread over time (e.g. if you want to write about Pennsylvania, you do not only have to discuss Quakers, but can talk about other people/events that makes this place distinct)
There are different and creative ways you could do this assignment, but I want you to know and share the ways you could think about this.
This assignment is worth 25 points and is graded in the following ways.
Sticking to the script: Are you incorporating the historical substance into this brochure. Is your primary and secondary source research tying into this brochure? Do you have enough images? I have seen many excellent brochures with 3-4 images (hint). You may want to consider some type of conclusion or very short paragraph explaining why someone should either go to Florida, Wisconsin, or Vermont.
A works cited page or bibliography is not required at the end of the brochure. However, you may include it if you would like. You may also put below the image(s) you include, a sentence or two describing the image/visual source. Could be a painting/letter/map/Artifact/burial ground/etc.
