The Resurrection of Magazine Covers?
It is a fact that print media advertisements and down and eBook sales are rising, but don't tell that to our students! Just kidding.
In all seriousness, our students may need different ways to express their knowledge of content. Why not create a product that they use and see everyday? You know what I'm talking about! The Seventeen Magazines in their purses. The Sports Illustrated's in their lockers! Why not create a Magazine cover to demonstrate their knowledge and connections of a certain topic?
Why not try Magazine Cover from Big Huge Labs. Simply upload your photo, choose your title, and come up with catchy article names and presto! This would make a great history project. Can you imagine taking a picture of Abe Lincoln and creating a whole magazine cover devoted to his life?
Why not take an element and use the "article names" to label facts? Why not take an animal and list characteristics?
