Fourth Graders Demonstrate Media Literacy & Graphicacy In Magazine Cover Production Activity
Every year our fourth graders complete a state project. Instead of doing the usual travel brochure or poster with their research, we decided to have them pitch their states by designing a travel magazine cover. It sounds simple, but it actually incorporated the skills of media literacy and graphicacy. On the one hand, it required them to think about the message, and on the other, to visually construct the design to sell it. More from the ASIDE blog.
