During the next few days or weeks you will be creating and printing a large poster covering one topic you learned this year.

The steps:

1. Get an overview of the project, view sample posters, and discuss attributes of great ones.

2. Find a partner (or not), browse the textbooks (or not) and find an area of interest

3. Enter your names, topic, and textbook section onto my spreadsheet.

4. Do initial research to choose subtopics, then write them (3-4) on paper.

5. Create poster:

  • 5.1: Create one PowerPoint slide, set page width to 34 & height to 22

    • 5.2: Name the file "topic_first_first" (no spaces)

    • 5.3: Find and read information and add it (in your words) to poster

    • 5.4: Find great big graphics, save to computer, and add to poster (100% or less)

    • 5.5: Arrange components so that they make sense and look good (PARC)

    • 5.6: Print an 8.5 x 11 color copy (@home) and get suggestions for improvement. Keep the mark-up

6. Show me your poster file (on screen) to get final approval

7. Turn in via (pw = heumann).
