We are now in the process of sharing part one of infographics project, in which each student is choosing an infographic of interest to analyze and share with the class. Some students have spent too much of their time searching instead of choosing one and getting the write up completed and so their presentations are being done past the deadline. Assignment details for Infographics 1 are found here. Some of the infographics shared include The History of Superman, 8 Things Successful People Do and Why They Work, London vs. Paris, and The Psychology of Music.
To prepare for creating their own infographics that will tie together our work with the Millennium Goals and their study of Africa in social studies, students will learn about the CARP principles of good design, and review creating objects using shape tools in Microsoft PowerPoint as well as embedding charts and graphs into a slide. They will be receiving specific requirements from Miss Smith regarding the project requirements.
